    Bombshell (2019)

    I'm not entirely sure if I enjoyed Bombshell as a movie, or as revenge, as it attempts to skewer the massive brainwashing machine known as Fox News. To its credit, it does attempt to find humanity in the characters that work there, but the end result still feels a little too on-the-surface to make much of an impact, either culturally or creatively. Charlize Theron is astonishingly spot-on as news anchor Megyn Kelly, completely transformed by makeup, voice modulation, and physical being. Nicole Kidman plays commentator Gretchen Carlson, but sadly, her makeup makes her look more like a neanderthal than the actual Carlson. Margot Robbie looks like herself as new hire Kayla Pospisil, a religious conservative who dreams of being an anchor. Kayla meets the big boss, Roger Ailes (John Lithgow, also heavily made-up), who makes her hike up her skirt so he can see her legs (and, possibly, more than that). When Gretchen is fired, she immediately attempts to topple Ailes for sexual harassment; the other women must decide whether or not they want to risk everything to get on board. Kate McKinnon plays a crucial character, a lesbian who must keep her sexual orientation and her liberal politics a secret at work; she says she continuously applies for other jobs, but once a person works at Fox, no one else will hire. I confess I let out a hoot when Richard Kind turned up as Rudy Giuliani, but quieted down again when Malcolm McDowell appeared, playing a scary Rupert Murdoch. read more...

      Private Life (2018)

      Director Tamara Jenkins last gave us The Savages (2007) and earned an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay, but for some reason, didn't or couldn't make a follow-up until the equally excellent Private Life (2018), eleven years later. A Netflix original, this movie about a middle-aged New York couple trying every conceivable method to have a baby contains a wonderfully awkward Thanksgiving scene that will be worth re-watching for years to come. Paul Giamatti and Kathryn Hahn play the couple, Richard and Rachel, flitting back and forth between adoption centers and fertility treatments, until they come upon a plan. Uneasy with the idea of an anonymous egg donor, their sort-of niece Sadie (Kayli Carter) — the child of Richard's brother's wife from a former marriage — begins to look like a good candidate. To their joy, Sadie agrees, but then the fallout starts. Jenkins is brilliant at juggling the unruly emotions of smart people, and somehow making their stories universal, funny, and heartbreaking. This is a wonderful film. John Carroll Lynch, Molly Shannon, and Denis O'Hare co-star. read more...

        RBG (2018)

        Betsy West and Julie Cohen's documentary RBG is about the awesome Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It traces her early achievements, fighting against a male-led system, advocating for gender equality in law, her relationship with her husband Martin Ginsburg — who seemed to compliment her perfectly — and her rise to stardom, being appointed to the court by President Clinton in 1993 and finally becoming a pop culture icon ("The Notorious RBG"). While it could have dug deeper, and been more personal, that seems unlikely given the all-business nature of Ms. Ginsberg. And, either way, it's still wonderfully entertaining and informative. It's heartening to learn of the friendship between the liberal-leaning RBG and the late, conservative-leaning justice Antonin Scalia; if only friendships like those were more common today. read more...

        Swamp Water (1941)

        In 1940, Jean Renoir fled Nazi-occupied France and came to the United States where, typically, studio heads had no idea how to treat a master filmmaker of his ilk. His first American film, Swamp Water (1941), almost feels like the work of someone else, although it still contains a few of its maker's signature themes, and it's an excellent entertainment in any regard. Ben (Dana Andrews) ventures into the vast, deadly Okefenokee Swamp to find his lost dog, and accidentally runs into escaped fugitive and accused murderer Tom Keefer (Walter Brennan). They eventually become partners and form a trapping business, but Ben's long absences rub both his controlling father, Thursday (Walter Huston), and his fickle sweetheart (Virginia Gilmore) the wrong way. At the same time, he becomes closer to Tom's grown daughter, Julie (Anne Baxter), and begins to promise her a new life when her father returns. Meanwhile, creepy Jesse Wick (John Carradine) begins hanging around Thursday's second wife a bit too much, leading to a confrontation with Ben. Dudley Nichols wrote the screenplay (from a novel by Vereen Bell), and while he delicately balances the novel's intricate plotlines, he also imbues the movie with his trademark seriousness; in this case it works. It elevates the pulp to the level of art. Because of Nichols and because of a selection of recognizable stock players (Carradine, Ward Bond, etc.), many have said that Swamp Water seems like a John Ford film, but moments of delicate humanity, as when Ben steps into the line of fire to prove to Tom that he's really a friend, are all Renoir. read more...
