I, Daniel Blake (2016)

I, Daniel Blake was director Ken Loach's second Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or winner, after The Wind That Shakes the Barley. It's another example of his brand of keenly-observed social realism, with moments that are genuinely touching mixed with moments of righteous indignation. Loach's frequent screenwriter, Paul Laverty, is back, and while he has a tendency to fall back on simplistic, melodramatic moments, Loach is mostly capable of smoothing them out; this turns out to be one of their best collaborations. read more...

I Am Not Your Negro (2016)

In a year of remarkable documentaries on racism — coming, apparently, just in time — Raoul Peck's I Am Not Your Negro isn't as sensational or essential as O.J.: Made in America, nor as far-reaching and emotional as Ava Duvernay's 13th, but it's certainly the most scholarly. (The trio should be taken together as an important snapshot of racism as an inextricable part of American history.) Director Peck (Lumumba) bases his film on an unfinished manuscript by author James Baldwin (1924-1987), detailing Baldwin's reminiscences of and friendships with civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. Samuel L. Jackson narrates from the manuscript, using a surprisingly effective, moderated voice, and matching Baldwin's own beautiful, intelligent manner of speaking. This flows over a stream of powerful images, archival footage of Baldwin speaking about race with clarity that was unheard of at the time, difficult for whites to understand (perhaps less so now, but still difficult). A short capsule review cannot do this documentary's depth of intelligence justice, but suffice to say that it uses history and literature to peel back old wounds and reveal fresh ones. read more...

The Look of Silence (2015)

Joshua Oppenheimer's follow-up, or companion piece, to his extraordinary The Act of Killing, The Look of Silence feels slightly smaller-scale, which is not necessarily a bad thing in this case. It follows an Indonesian man, an optician, who interviews various individuals who were purportedly involved with the killings of so-called communists in the 1960s. The man's brother was killed during that time, and he proves to be an assertive, canny interviewer; one subject angrily says that he's even pushier than "Josh." Oppenheimer includes several asides, visits with the interviewer's century-old parents, and other striking images that allow time for the atrocities, and the human memory, to sink in. The Act of Killing was nominated for an Oscar, but did not win, and this one could make up for it. read more...
