    The Royal Road (2015)

    A deeply personal, remarkably intelligent, and profoundly moving experience, Jenni Olson's The Royal Road is not easily labeled. Olson herself calls it a "stream of consciousness" film, rejecting the loaded term "experimental film." It consists entirely of spoken narration and lovingly sustained, beautiful, meditative shots of serene San Francisco landscapes, buildings and alleyways; these shots are empty of humans, though sometimes the wind blows and things move, or a pigeon flies by, or a car passes. Olson herself provides the intermittent narration, though there is also a section spoken by Tony Kushner. Named for the highway that connects San Francisco and Los Angeles, the film follows three, intertwining threads. First, there's the heartbreaking love story of the smitten butch lesbian up north and the elusive object of her affection down south. Second, it connects the plot threads of Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo, which Olson cleverly untangles over the course of her film. Third, it discusses Father Junipero Serrra (1713-1784), exploring a more politicized angle over the romanticized one that is usually presented in California history. Though it has been ten years since Olson's previous movie, the powerful The Joy of Life, her new effort proves that she is a filmmaker worthy of our admiration. read more...

    Mysterious Object at Noon (2000)

    This masterpiece from new Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul blends fiction and non-fiction into a new form of cinema previously forged only by the likes of Hou Hsiao-hsien and Abbas Kiarostami. For his low-budget, 85-minute, black-and-white film, Weerasethakul traveled all over Thailand, inviting people to continue the storyline he has begun about a teacher, her student, and a mysterious boy who has suddenly appeared and has magic powers. read more...

      And Life Goes On (1992)

      The middle film (1991) of Abbas Kiarostami's "Earthquake Trilogy" -- after Where Is the Friend's Home? (1987) and before Through the Olive Trees (1994) -- is yet another masterpiece and perhaps the first film on which the filmmaker really began playing around with space and reality. It starts like a documentary, with an actor who is not Kiarostami playing a filmmaker who suggests Kiarostami. (He's played by Farhad Kheradmand.) Driving around the village of Koker that was recently destroyed by an earthquake, he looks for the young actors who played in Where Is the Friend's Home?. Instead, the filmmaker becomes involved in the locals and their attempts to rebuild their lives among the rubble. Many scenes feel improvised, but the poetry in them seem too deliberate for that. The final shot involving the filmmaker's car and a twisty uphill road will resonate for hours after the film is over. It's also known as Life and Nothing More.... read more...

      Goodbye to Language 3D (2014)

      Now eighty-three years old, Jean-Luc Godard has decided to make his first 3D feature; I read somewhere that he went to see Piranha 3D and it inspired him to make this. It's a delicious image, the crusty old genius sitting in a multiplex, wearing funny glasses and perhaps even eating popcorn. Regardless of whether or not it's true, the old master seems in a more playful mood this time out. Goodbye to Language 3D is only 70 minutes long, as baffling as anything he has ever made, but those moments and thoughts that jut out from the screen seem so feisty now, as if his movie were a batch of piranha devouring whatever ideas we might have had about what cinema is, should be, or can be. read more...
