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...

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...

Mountains May Depart (2016)

Jia Zhang-ke's eighth feature film, Mountains May Depart, feels like something of a departure. It still features his muse Zhao Tao in prominent role (and giving a great performance), and it still deals with the ever-changing economy and social structure in China, but it somehow comes across, above all, as a kind of melodrama. It's like something Meryl Streep could star in. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does make the film feel a step or two down from Jia's greatest works, the ones that carefully touch upon his various themes without ever seeming like he's touching upon them. read more...

Certain Women (2016)

The wonderful American director Kelly Reichardt seems to have been made for short stories. Many great short stories are about moments, experiences, or revelations, rather than plots. Her films — including Old Joy (2006), Wendy and Lucy (2008), Meek's Cutoff (2011), and Night Moves (2014) — all nestle inside moments of quiet and reflection, rather than aggressively moving forward toward a tidy conclusion. So it makes sense that her latest film, and one of her best, Certain Women, comes from three short stories by author Maile Meloy. ("Tome" and "Native Sandstone," appear in Meloy's 2002 collection Half in Love, and "Travis, B." is from her 2009 collection Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It.) read more...

Phoenix (2015)

Director Christian Petzold and actors Nina Hoss and Ronald Zehrfeld follow up their remarkable Barbara (2013) with an even more striking work. Phoenix tells the story of a little crime taking place in the shadows and ruins of a very large crime. In scene after scene, Petzold impressively finds the appropriate visual scale for his prickly, emotionally rending story. read more...
