Now, Voyager (1942)

Bette Davis stars in this compulsively watchable four-hankie weepie, considered by many to be a cult classic. Davis plays a shy, bookish nerd kept locked away by her hideously domineering mother. Claude Rains plays a shrink who takes her away and saves her life, and Paul Henreid plays the man who finally falls for her. But before anyone gets too happy, the mother (Gladys Cooper, who was nominated for an Oscar) re-enters the picture. Fans will recognize many of the Warner Brothers contract workers who helped make Casablanca the same year, including future director Don Siegel (Dirty Harry), who shot the film's montage sequences. Max Steiner won an Oscar for his score, and Davis received one of her 11 acting nominations. read more...

Room (2015)

I didn't really want to see Room and I can't say I'm entirely glad I did, but I will admit that if you're among those that do want to see it, it does its job effectively. (It's a kind of feel-good downer, like Precious.) Written by Emma Donoghue, who adapted her own novel, Room tells the story of a woman (Brie Larson) who has been taken prisoner and kept in a room, a shed, in a backyard. She has been raped and has a son, Jack (Jacob Tremblay, in a fine juvenile performance), who turns five as the story begins. His "Ma" has done her best to raise him not knowing that he is a prisoner, teaching him all about "room" and all the remarkable things in it. After a night in which their captor turns off the heat, "Ma" pretends that Jack is sick, and then dies, so that he can escape. From there, Jack must learn how to live in the much bigger world. Joan Allen and William H. Macy play the boy's grandparents; Macy's character can't stand that the boy is a child of rape and eventually leaves the picture, never to return. Director Lenny Abrahamsson keeps things on an even keel, staying close, but not exclusively, to Jack's point of view as he learns things. The movie is still heavy in spots, but moves along cleanly. Besides Tremblay, Brie Larsen is the real core to the movie. She has already proven herself a wonderfully intuitive actress in better movies (especially Short Term 12), but she will likely receive her first Oscar nomination for this. read more...

Freeheld (2015)

Julianne Moore won her first Oscar for a not-very-good disease-of-the-week movie that everyone has surely forgotten about by now. It was a frustrating victory for an actress that has been great for decades and has given far greater performances in at least a dozen far greater movies. Now, as if encouraged by this dubious honor, she has done another disease-of-the-week movie, Freeheld, less than a year later. But this time it's coupled with a prestigious "based on a true story" issue. read more...

Imitation of Life (1959)

Douglas Sirk's best-known movie was a huge hit in its day, but was probably not considered the masterpiece it is today. On the surface it's a very effective weepie, telling the story of two single mothers and their troubled, troublesome daughters. Lana Turner plays Lora Meredith, an actress with big dreams of Broadway stardom. She claims to have morals, but she also lies to get work. One day at the beach, she loses her daughter Susie. An unemployed black maid, Annie Johnson (Juanita Moore), finds her. Annie has a light-skinned daughter, Sarah Jane, and Lora assumes that Annie is merely her nanny, rather than her mother. Annie offers her services for next to nothing, and Lora eventually agrees. read more...

Still Alice (2014)

Julianne Moore will probably win an Oscar for Best Actress for her work in Still Alice. She recently won the San Francisco Film Critics Circle award in the same category, as well as many other awards so far. She's a great actress. She has been nominated many times but has never won, and has been great in many more films that did not receive nominations. She has been consistently good for more than 20 years, and easily ranks with our best. Her work here is above reproach. read more...
