Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2018)

This moment of women rising up and taking control of their own empowerment is the perfect time to release a documentary about Hedy Lamarr. She was a woman of two extremes. She was arguably the most beautiful woman ever to grace the silver screen, so much so that even gorgeous people like Vivien Leigh and Myrna Loy tried to copy her look. At the same time, she was also brilliant, perhaps a genius, and her mind was always working on inventions and other ways to solve problems. The main thesis of Alexandra Dean's documentary Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story is that no one, men especially, could believe that these two things came in the same package. read more...

Black Book (2007)

Paul Verhoeven's latest film is a radical departure from his Hollywood genre films, but not that radical. It starts as yet another World War II film showing the insidious behavior of the Nazis as well as the cunning of the terrified, persecuted Jews. But the new film, which is "inspired by a true story" and set in the waning months of the war, then takes a unique turn as a former Jewish popular singer, the beautiful Rachel Stein (Carice van Houten), joins the resistance. read more...

Home of the Brave (1949)

Director Mark Robson made his directorial debut while working under the command of genius producer Val Lewton at RKO, and while his career turned out to be rather unmemorable, there are certain moments here and that that show his training. Home of the Brave is an impressive, ahead-of-its-time drama that deserves to be better known. On the surface, it's a war movie, but it's really about a black soldier and his feelings. read more...

He Named Me Malala (2015)

When I first walked out of Davis Guggenheim's documentary He Named Me Malala, I was thinking that it felt a little soft. Surely a movie about a real-life hero like Malala Yousafzai should be more ruthless, with less hero-worship? But then it hit me: she's 15 in the movie (and 18 as of this writing). What are her flaws really going to be at this point? They are going to be stuff about school and boys. Guggenheim shows Malala at her school, looking out of place, trying to fit in, and it resonates enough that we get an idea. But at the same time, when she is meeting with world leaders and speaking to the world, maybe she thinks her own little problems aren't worth a hill of beans. read more...

Miss Sloane (2016)

Jessica Chastain plays a fascinating role, an unapologetically powerful woman, capable of ugly behavior as well as kindness, and refreshingly unexplained; no flashbacks or psychological origin stories are provided. Her Miss Slaone is a lobbyist, who takes a big demotion in order to fight the gun lobby on a new gun control bill. Her sneaky tactics are the only thing that can take on the enormous budgets and influence of the powerful right-wing group. The screenplay by first-timer Jonathan Perera sounds well-researched, and characters spout interesting political rhetoric back and forth to each other, but the downside is that it doesn't often sound like people speaking; it sounds like dialogue. However, Chastain and the talented cast frequently manage to smooth this out, and eventually generate a decent amount of anticipation. Things come tumbling down during a fairly cliché denouncement, however. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, John Lithgow, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mark Strong, Alison Pill, Jake Lacy, Sam Waterston, and Dylan Baker are among Chastain's worthy colleagues and combatants. Former Weinstein man John Madden directs competently, forgoing much of the shaky-cam and ill pacing he showed on earlier, middlebrow award contenders. read more...
