Taste of Cherry (1997)

Taste of Cherry, by veteran Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami, is a most extraordinary movie. I can factually say that I have never seen another movie quite like it; at least not made in the past 3 decades. It has won the Palme D'Or at the Cannes Film Festival (shared with Shohei Imamura's The Eel). It has been proclaimed a masterpiece by The New York Times, The New York Daily News, Film Comment and Time Magazine, as well as internationally acclaimed filmmakers Jean-Luc Godard and Akira Kurosawa. It deserves comparison to some of history's most thoughtful and poetic films; Jean-Luc Godard's Vivre Sa Vie, Akira Kurosawa's High and Low, Ingmar Bergman's Persona, and Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita. It's now available on a lovely Criterion DVD. read more...

Maborosi (1995)

This feature debut by Hirokazu Kore-eda highlights his appreciation for Yasujiro Ozu, which has its plusses and minuses. Though Maborosi is assured in its every frame, it still feels as if Kore-eda were a little unsure, a little unformed, and leaning a little too hard on ideas borrowed from Ozu to brace himself. But at the same time, how many other filmmakers have ever come even remotely this close to replicating that special Ozu touch? To be sure, for viewers that know and love Ozu's work, Maborosi is a pure pleasure to watch. In it, Kore-eda begins his mature explorations of death and family, and he is even able to go a little farther than Ozu with is inclusion of sex as a factor. read more...

    Distant Voices, Still Lives (1988)

    This forgotten gem from the 1980s gets a Blu-ray release at long last. A feature directing debut by the acclaimed English filmmaker Terence Davies, Distant Voices, Still Lives (1988) is a two-parter (part one is "Distant Voices" and part two is "Still Lives"). Both parts tells the story of a family living in Liverpool during the 1940s and 1950s, with their trials and tribulations, weddings and funerals. Pete Postlethwaite plays the father, sometimes tender, but frequently cruel, although not everything is grim and depressing here. Davies uses popular music and the concept of memory to tell his story, deliberately allowing artificiality and staginess in his scenes, but always in a way that flows softly and lyrically. It's a beautifully poetic movie, and a small masterpiece. read more...

    The Deserted Station (2002)

    The two leaders of Iranian film, Abbas Kiarostami and Mohsen Makhmalbaf, have spent a good deal of their time training and helping young filmmakers get started. Makhmalbaf has his own film school, and his wife and daughter have released extraordinary films under his tutelage. Kiarostami has helped out new filmmakers like Jafar Panahi by contributing story ideas and taking "story" credit on films like The White Balloon and the recent Crimson Gold. read more...

      After the Storm (2017)

      Though Hirokazu Kore-eda is probably still best known and loved for the beautiful fantasy After Life, in which the recently departed get to choose a favorite memory, make a film of it, and take it with them to the afterlife. But the director has refused to re-create the magic behind that film, and with Still Walking and his new After the Storm, he has instead slowly taken an equally lovely, profound, Ozu-like path. read more...
