    Hellion (2014)

    The third feature by writer/director Kat Candler, Hellion is a sensitive, soulful character drama with great sympathy. It does not judge any of its characters. Jacob is first seen vandalizing a truck, Hollis is a drunk and neglects his kids, and Pam won't let Wes return to his father, but Candler understands each of them, their motivations, their worries, their fears, and their flaws, and they emerge as beautifully heartbreakingly human. read more...

      Ben Is Back (2018)

      Between this and Beautiful Boy — another harrowing drama about a young person's addiction to drugs — I think I dislike Ben Is Back slightly less. Both movies are a brow-furrowing mishmash of anguish and rage, with moments of rising, bitter courage thrown in, and both movies are about the nature of the disease itself, rather than about the characters. Both movies attempt moments of quiet and calm in-between the misery, but Beautiful Boy's moments are thick with foreboding, and it's impossible to relax. But Peter Hedges, the writer and director of Ben Is Back, is more successful at these moments, perhaps because his film is set at Christmastime. There are a few minutes here and there wherein one might even forget what a miserable time one is having. Hedges's son Lucas plays, and suffers greatly, as the addict, and Julia Roberts runs on high octane as his mom, taking a noble stand in her son's life. read more...

          The Last Picture Show (1971)

          Peter Bogdanovich's second feature film, after his great "B" movie Targets (1968), was a critically acclaimed hit that put him on the map as one of the rock stars of the new Hollywood. Adapted by Bogdanovich and Larry McMurtry from McMurtry's 1966 novel, The Last Picture Show is set in a small, dusty Texas town in 1951. It deals with several young characters who don't really know what they want and don't even know that they don't know what they want. Duane Jackson (Jeff Bridges) is the handsome, happy-go-lucky football star, a big fish in a little pond, perhaps not too bright, but dating the beautiful Jacy Farrow (Cybill Shepherd). Jacy is well aware of her beauty and believes it can earn her higher position in life, or at least higher than Duane has to offer. She tries to get him to sleep with her for the mere status of it (he fails to become aroused in the midst of her irritated, impatient commands). Duane's best pal is Sonny Crawford (Timothy Bottoms) — they share a rattletrap truck — and Sonny is less than happy with his girlfriend so he breaks up with her and begins sleeping with the coach's lonely wife (Cloris Leachman). The best character is Sam the Lion (Ben Johnson), who seemingly runs everything in town, and whom everyone loves. Sam takes the boys fishing and tells them stories of his old conquests, and this scene has an even more vivid quality than the more "present" scenes. The film's second half is filled with loss and emptiness, where hope turns into aimless drifting. For the "last picture show," attended by Duane and Sonny before they part ways, is Howard Hawks's masterpiece Red River, a film that Bogdanovich knew well and chose carefully. The deep-shadowed, dusty black-and-white cinematography by the legendary Robert Surtees (who had worked with John Ford, a favorite of Bogdanovich's), helps elevate the story beyond the realistic and anticlimactic, making it mythic and poetic. The movie received eight Oscar nominations in all, and Johnson and Leachman won for their supporting performances. read more...

            Moonrise (1948)

            In The American Cinema, Andrew Sarris wrote of Frank Borzage: "Anglo-Saxon film historians have generally underrated Borzage on the assumption that the director's romanticism was a commercially motivated betrayal of realism. Yet the way of the romanticist is usually much harder than that of the realist." Even today, it's hard to defend Borzage (Seventh Heaven, Man's Castle, Three Comrades, The Mortal Storm) as one of the great studio-era directors, especially given that precious few of his movies have been available to see. Now the Criterion Collection gives us his final film, and by some counts, his masterpiece, Moonrise (1948). read more...
