American Pastoral (2016)

Ewan McGregor makes his directorial debut with an arguably unwise choice, an adaptation of an acclaimed novel by Philip Roth. His American Pastoral doesn't fare quite as well as this year's Indignation or 2008's Elegy — which were based on slimmer literary offerings — but it does share certain strengths with 2003's The Human Stain. Basically, it's difficult to translate Roth's themes to the screen, but his stories at least offer actors a chance at rich characters, and the new film features several strong performances. read more...

Doubt (2008)

The trailer for Doubt makes it look like a ridiculous spoof of an Oscar-winner (much like the phony Tropic Thunder trailers), but the surprise is just how funny it can be and how light in touch it really is. read more...

Mary Queen of Scots (2018)

Just about everything that's usually wrong with costume movies is on display in this dull, chunky ornamental iceberg. It begins with some printed text that's supposed to provide a backdrop, but it goes by pretty quickly, and -- as someone who is not already an expert on Mary, Queen of Scots -- I spent half the movie trying to catch up, and simultaneously trying to keep from falling asleep. Mary Queen of Scots ostensibly tells about the conflict and connection between Mary (Saoirse Ronan) and Elizabeth (Margot Robbie). Mary is the rightful ruler of England, but also a Catholic and therefore unacceptable; she returns to Scotland to rule there, and attempts a kind of truce with Elizabeth, the current ruler of England. The men who counsel both women strong-arm their own opinions into things, and the women are constantly thwarted. There's a race to marry and produce an heir, and a stalemate over who gets to be the next in line for the throne. Screenwriter Beau Willimon and director Josie Rourke present the story in unwieldy chunks, with time marching forward in unknown blocks, although they occasionally identify places that I'd never heard of, with no context. Most of the scenes seem to be attempts to present characters talking to each other in front interesting backgrounds. Sometimes characters talk while riding horses, and you might wonder where they're headed. Nowhere, it seems. read more...

    Sunset Boulevard (1950)

    Of all Billy Wilder's cinematic creations, the most inspired is arguably the device of having Sunset Boulevard (1950) narrated by a dead man. The movie opens with the unforgettable image of screenwriter Joe Gillis (William Holden) floating upside down in a pool, while he speaks to us on the soundtrack. He has the ultimate gift of hindsight as he tells his bizarre story that could only have happened in Hollywood. (Sunset Boulevard plays May 5 - 12 at San Francisco's Bridge Theater.) read more...
