I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House (2016)

I finally caught up with Oz Perkins's I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House (2016) — a Netflix original movie that premiered last Halloween — and it caught me off guard. It's truly unlike any other thriller or ghost story that I have ever seen, though whether that's a good thing or a bad thing will be up to each individual viewer. Lily (Ruth Wilson) plays a care provider for an elderly horror fiction author, Iris Blum (Paula Prentiss, a onetime beauty known for Man's Favorite Sport?; The Parallax View, and The Stepford Wives). The house is eerily quiet and time passes without much seeming to change. Lily isn't able to read Ms. Blum's books (she scares too easily), though she is concerned with a patch of mold growing on one wall, and wonders why Ms. Blum insists on calling her "Polly." read more...

    Gang of Four (1989)

    Perhaps the least known of the French New Wave directors, Jacques Rivette is nevertheless my favorite of the group. And now, after years of obscurity, Image Entertainment has unearthed Gang of Four (1989), which never received a U.S. theatrical release, for a new DVD. This masterpiece is one of Rivette's best, combining his passions for theater and for Fritz Lang-type suspense. read more...

    Mommy (2015)

    Xavier Dolan's Mommy is a movie of little moments and big feelings. Dolan presents the movie mostly in a squarish aspect ratio, wherein his three main characters talk and interact, but occasionally, emotions become too big for the frame. In one remarkable, euphoric moment, a character literally spreads the frame open wide with his hands. read more...

      Through the Olive Trees (1994)

      The third part in Abbas Kiarostami's masterful Koker trilogy (sometimes called the "earthquake trilogy"), Through the Olive Trees tells a fictionalized story of the shooting of the previous film, Life and Nothing More.... A young man, Hossein (Hossein Rezai), and a young woman, Tahereh (Tahereh Ladanian), are filming a scene together. When the camera is not rolling, the young man, an illiterate stonemason, tries to propose to the young woman, who has been orphaned after the region's devastating (real-life) earthquake. She rebuffs him off-camera, and -- apparently unclear on the space between acting and life -- in the film as well. Mohamad Ali Keshavarz plays the Kiarostami-like film director who tries to sort it all out. read more...

      Unknown Pleasures (2003)

      The three main characters in Unknown Pleasures try their best to fill the long hours of the day, but even the effort of doing that much has become unrelentingly wearisome. And yet, despite the distinct lack of good times and belly laughs, Unknown Pleasures is a great film. read more...
