Honey Boy (2019)

Shia LaBeouf, that former child star who graduated to starring roles in massive, multi-million dollar Hollywood blockbusters, and then more or less imploded, wrote the screenplay for what would become Honey Boy in rehab, as part of his required therapy. Admirably, he could have stayed away from the whole thing, or taken over and managed it himself, but instead, he gave it to director Alma Har'el. (They had worked together previously on the Sigur Rós music video "Fjögur píanó.") Then, as further therapy, LaBeouf agreed to play a version of his own father — similar to Mario Van Peebles in Baadasssss! — and act out painful moments that might have led to LaBeouf's being diagnosed with PTSD. It's quite an act of emotional bravery, and LaBeouf gives it everything, even going so far as to wear a prosthetic device in his nose to make his speech sound nasally and restrict his breathing, suggesting years of cocaine abuse. read more...

      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...

      Tangerine (2015)

      Shot entirely on the iPhone 5s, Sean Baker's Tangerine could have been a gimmick film, but it immediately starts to work like a good movie should, and all thoughts of gimmicks slip away as we become involved in the characters. It's Christmas Eve in Los Angeles (the color scheme is orange and pink rather than red and green), and two trans woman sex workers, Sin-Dee (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) and Alexandra (Mya Taylor), are chatting over a donut. Sin-Dee has just been released from prison, and Alexandra lets it slip that her boyfriend, Chester (James Ransone), has cheated on her with Dinah (Mickey O'Hagan). Sin-Dee begins a neighborhood-wide search for both the girl and the cheater, pausing only for Alexandra's show at a seedy club. Meanwhile, an Armenian taxi driver, Razmik (Karren Karagulian) would rather engage Sin-Dee's services than spent Christmas with his family. The movie feels very much part of a community, a little enclosed world all by itself within a big city. For all the not-exactly-admirable activities going on, these people have a touching bond, and when the movie finds its moving conclusion, our affection has been earned. Baker's previous film was the equally good Starlet, and he has proven himself a director to watch. read more...

      The Exiles (1961)

      Most people have probably never heard of Kent Mackenzie's historically and culturally essential film The Exiles (1961). Some clips of it surfaced in Thom Andersen's great documentary Los Angeles Plays Itself (2004) -- about the use of Los Angeles locations in movies -- but unfortunately most people have never heard of that film either. Andersen included it prominently because it managed to find vivid corners of the city that actually looked like a city and not set dressing. Now thanks to Milestone (who also gave us the 2007 re-release and 2008 DVD of Charles Burnett's extraordinary Killer of Sheep) the film in its entirety has been released on an outstanding two-disc set. read more...
