    The Mystery of Oberwald (1981)

    Director Michelangelo Antonioni is still best known for his 1960's freak-out movie Blow Up, a colorful suspense story about a photographer who discovers a potential murder in the background of one of his photos. The movie caught on with audiences with its hip look and way-out music by the Yardbirds (featuring Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page) and Herbie Hancock. But Antonioni is considered a world master director in spite of this funky anomaly in his resume. His masterpiece L'avventura (1960) made incredible use of the emptiness of the Cinemascope space as his characters searched an island in vain for a mysteriously vanished girl, and his other films La Notte (1960), L'eclisse (1962), and Red Desert (1964) are equally admired. The last film on radar was his 1970 flop Zabriskie Point, and from there on out, no one paid any attention to him, though his 1975 film The Passenger, starring Jack Nicholson, was another masterpiece. read more...

      State Like Sleep (2019)

      As the title suggests, this so-called thriller could be trying to emulate a dreamlike or sleepwalking state, but instead it tells a terminally disjointed, boring story in a way that can induce sleep. read more...

        Spinning Man (2018)

        This little thriller, part lurid potboiler and part philosophical quandary, plays like a sturdy little "B" movie; it won't change the world, but it may keep late-night viewers from changing channels. read more...

          The Wife (2018)

          I finally caught up with The Wife now that Glenn Close has won a Golden Globe and received an Academy Award nomination (her seventh) for her lead performance. That may be a little too much pressure to review the film objectively, and certainly Close is outstanding. But I think I agree with the IMDB commenter who said, "A very good movie which I didn't like." Close plays Joan Castleman, the wife of novelist Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce). Joe has just been chosen to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature, and the family -- including grown son and aspiring writer David (Max Irons) -- are off to Stockholm for the ceremony. Through flashbacks (young Joan played by Annie Starke and young Joe played by Harry Lloyd) we learn of a "shocking" twist, that the film decides to reveal well past the halfway point. To start, for a movie all about the art of writing, The Wife is, at times, annoyingly pedestrian. Whenever the pesky would-be biographer Nathaniel Bone (Christian Slater) shows up, Joan explains that she doesn't want to be seen as a victim, or the long-suffering wife, yet that's pretty much what she is. When Joe asks "why did you marry me," her answer is "I don't know." And we don't either. Oddly, the flashback scenes seem to work the best, and some of Slater's scenes are interesting, but when it centers back around to present-day Joe and Joan, as they fight and talk about Joe's eating, medication, and extramarital affairs, it turns into hackneyed melodrama. Perhaps if the screenplay had laid everything on the table all at once, then all the characters could have been more fully developed. But as it is, The Wife is a partly-effective exercise that will likely be forgotten after awards season ends. Elizabeth McGovern, of all people, appears in one scene as a bitter published writer that warns the young Joan against pursuing a career in prose. read more...

            Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017)

            As with his harrowing directorial debut Nightcrawler, Dan Gilroy tells the story of a brilliant, ill-fitting outsider in a vivid workplace, but the movie fails due to puzzling, choppy character arcs. read more...
