Shoplifters (2018)

The Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda is probably the closest thing to the spirit of Yasujiro Ozu we have, having made several beautiful, contemplative stories about families of all sorts, and especially non-traditional families. For his newest film, Shoplifters, which won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, he has gone back to a kind of messagy storytelling, evident in my least-favorite film of his, the otherwise highly acclaimed Nobody Knows. But this time, he has more effortlessly entwined his message and the emotional centers of his characters, and it flows smoothly, even if it's often rough going. read more...

Foxtrot (2018)

Of the batch of 2017 "official Oscar submissions" from various countries — usually a dreary, self-important lot — I can safely say that I liked Samuel Maoz's Foxtrot, from Israel, best. It did not receive a nomination, of course, because it's far edgier, more artistic, and more interesting than the stuff that usually wins. read more...

Happiness (1998)

Writer/director Todd Solondz may be one of the most disturbed individuals out there. Thank God he's making movies instead of obscene phone calls. His 1996 critical hit Welcome to the Dollhouse was a direct channeling of adolescent fears, anguish, and pain. Solondz goes even farther in his new movie, Happiness. The movie shows us a family: three grown sisters, a mother, and a father, and their lives together and apart from each other. read more...

Of Fathers and Sons (2018)

For the documentary Of Fathers and Sons, filmmaker Talal Derki heads to his homeland of Syria and poses as a war photographer, sympathetic to the radical jihadist cause. He befriends a family, father Abu Osama and his four sons, and follows their progress over two years. The movie begins shockingly, with Abu boasting for the camera that he named all his sons after the architects of the 9/11 attacks in America. (He's thrilled that one of his sons was actually born on September 11.) He holds meetings about forming his own caliphate and goes searching for abandoned landmines, boasting that he knows all about how to disarm them. Derki's camera eventually settles in on two of the boys, the older Osama and the younger Ayman. They love their father, but when they are sent to a military-style training camp, Ayman begins to question, and decides he'd rather go to school. The movie is effective, but one wonders if anything was really accomplished. Do we Westerners really have a better understanding of radical jihadists, or are we simply staring at this family in shock and shaking our heads in dismay? (Not to mention the somewhat questionable journalistic methods that allowed Derki to get this footage.) Nonetheless, Of Fathers and Sons received an Oscar nomination for Best Documentary Feature. read more...
