    Hale County This Morning, This Evening (2018)

    RaMell Ross's Hale County This Morning, This Evening could have been one of those things that gets shot by your friend that always has his camera on, and then cobbled together on iMovie, but instead it's a deeply poetic, lyrical film that understands the beauty and importance of small moments of seeming nothingness. The movie ostensibly focuses on Daniel, who goes to college to play basketball, and Quincy, who winds up having children, but the film barely provides any biographical details or soul-searching moments. It simply watches them do what they do. They sometimes speak to, or acknowledge the camera, but mostly not. It's almost like a Frederick Wiseman film, but looser, taking time out for a time-lapse shot of cows in a field or stars at night. The result is less a complete portrait of people or a place than it is a meditation, or an impression, and it's a highly satisfying one. It's fitting that the great Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul served as "creative advisor," as Hale County This Morning, This Evening is the kind of experimental non-fiction work that Weerasethakul's debut feature Mysterious Object at Noon was. Danny Glover was an executive producer. The film was nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature. read more...

        The Secret of the Grain (2007)

        Abdel Kechiche's The Secret of the Grain turned up in America late in 2008 and made a few critics' top ten lists. But in France, it was a major critical success and placed on Cahiers du Cinema's list of the ten best films of the decade. (On Film Comment's list of the best of the decade, it came it at #125.) This could be due to a cultural level that French people could see in the film that Americans could not appreciate; it takes place in the world of Arabs living in France and speaking mostly French. But Americans can definitely appreciate that -- at the very least -- it's one of the best food movies of the decade. read more...

          Cameraperson (2016)

          This wonderful documentary is essentially a collection of clips from the career of Kirsten Johnson, a cinematographer on many noted documentaries of the past couple of decades. The idea is that the movie might form some kind of a picture of Johnson's personality, and it does just that; she comes across as curious, compassionate, and sometimes a little adorably blindsided. (I fell in love with the movie during a roadside shot wherein she unexpectedly captures a bolt of lightning, gasps, and then, a few moments later, sneezes and jolts her shot.) Some of the documentaries are easy to identify, mainly when folks like Michael Moore or Jacques Derrida turn up, but otherwise, the clips are unidentified. I was regularly asking myself about the role of director; Johnson is the "director" of this film, even though the footage was shot under the guidance of many other directors (she works frequently for the Oscar-nominated Kirby Dick). At the same time, some of the clips show Johnson interviewing her own family members. On the whole, the movie gives viewers a chance to sit back and ponder questions and thoughts about the nature of being human and our relationship with the world. read more...
