45 Years (2015)

Geoff (Tom Courtenay) and Kate Mercer (Charlotte Rampling) have been married 45 years and are preparing for their anniversary celebration when Geoff receives a letter. Apparently the body of his old lover (a woman he knew before his wife) has been found, preserved in the ice below a mountain. From there, 45 Years doesn't really go where you might expect. There are no adventures or expeditions to the high country and no dramatic reveals of frozen bodies. Rather, director Andrew Haigh (Weekend) concentrates on the small emotional intricacies and intimacies that build up over a long period of time between two people. They know each other as well as any two people could possibly know anyone, and yet, here they are, still learning. Most of the struggles in this story are subtle and internal and only the smallest flickers of emotion by the performers reveal that anything is going on. The final moments are almost mundane, until we realize that everything that has happened, has built to it. Overall, 45 Years lacks the power of the very similar The Dead, and, to me, Rampling has always been a little too cool, but this is still an admirable achievement. read more...

Fireworks Wednesday (2006)

One of the things I love about Iranian cinema is that it seems to inspire itself. Even a decade after the first Iranian "New Wave" films began appearing in the United States in 1997, Iranian filmmakers have refused to "go Western" and use Hollywood methods in their films. Rather, Iranian filmmakers have continued to work with the original ideas and methods that made their cinema exciting in the first place. Here's a film directed by a relative newcomer, Asghar Farhadi, that feels just as fresh as films by his predecessors, yet it also turns slightly inward, getting a little closer to the more turbulent human emotions, and it comes out the other side with a vivid, three-dimensional portrait of three characters over the course of one day. read more...

    First Reformed (2018)

    Coming out of the same film-student club as Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, Brian De Palma, etc., Paul Schrader has always been a highly intelligent filmmaker, but an uneven one. He has made some notable films (Blue Collar, American Gigolo, Cat People, Light Sleeper, Affliction, etc.) and a number of not-very-notable ones. Film scholars might agree that his best work would be his four screenplays for Scorsese (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Last Temptation of Christ, and Bringing Out the Dead). But now he has given us a genuine masterpiece, a tough, meticulous howl of pain and passion, First Reformed. read more...

    Jackie (2016)

    Yet another film about the Kennedy family sounds like an eye-rolling prospect, but Pablo Larrain's Jackie, which opens today in Bay Area theaters, is so painfully alive, so painstakingly intimate, that it rises above such simple descriptions. read more...
