Fire at Sea (2016)

This fascinating, remarkable documentary from Italy is being submitted to the Academy for Best Foreign Language Film, banking on the notion that its artistry is enough to rank it against fiction films in the same category. It's set on Lampedusa, an island situated halfway between Africa and Italy, and a regular stopping point for Africans emigrating to Europe. The residents of the island regularly see unbelievable horrors, starting with starvation and dehydration, and ranging all the way to bizarre and horrifying fuel burns. But director Gianfranco Rosi (no relation to Francesco Rosi) isn't interested in simply wringing his hands and saying "isn't all this terrible?" Instead, he gives us another half of the movie, the residents of Lampedusa going about their daily business, their lives generally untouched by the nearby tragedies. The main focus is on a boy, Samuele, who loves making and firing slingshots, and who eventually needs to wear a corrective eyepatch for a lazy eye. Rosi shoots these sequences with a Wiseman-like observation, seeming not to intrude on the delicate rhythms and creating stories. The end result is transporting, but also moving; it's a wake-up call, asking us to think about how much attention we really pay to what's around us, and — perhaps more importantly — what to do about it? 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...

Ida (2014)

I first learned of Polish filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski in 2001 when I saw his Last Resort as part of the Shooting Gallery series. I missed his next movie, My Summer of Love, released three years later. Eight years later, I caught his next one, The Woman in the Fifth, on DVD. And now here is Ida. From what we can tell, Pawlikowski makes movies that are less than 90 minutes, when possible, and yet they unfold slowly, building atmosphere. He's an interesting director, but based on what I hd seen, I never would have expected anything as great as Ida on the horizon. From its first few frames, it's clear that this is an incredible movie, truly mesmerizing. I think it's a near-masterpiece, at least. read more...

The Life of Oharu (1952)

The life of Oharu is not a good one. She never seems to get a break. Even if it looks like she's about to get some good news, it's evident that the other shoe is about to drop. What's more, Oharu (Kinuyo Tanaka) never did anything to anyone to deserve this kind of life (if you can call it "life"). She merely exists. read more...

Safe (1995)

Safe is an American masterpiece depicting an average housewife (Julianne Moore, in a great perforamance) who develops an allergy to all kinds of everyday chemicals and must be shuttled out to a New Mexico detox camp. Writer/director Todd Haynes treats the material with a subtle touch, allowing the horror of the situation to creep through and playing on the cult-like behavior of the cure-all compound. Though the film had a miniscule budget, it looks outstanding with its dull, muted colors and godawful lite-rock soundtrack. It was voted in the Village Voice's poll as the best picture of the 1990s, and with good reason. read more...
