    Toni Erdmann (2016)

    Written and directed by Maren Ade (Everyone Else), the strange German film Toni Erdmann recently snagged the #1 spot on Cahiers du Cinema's top ten list, and looks to be the front-runner for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. It's made with Ade's usual immersion into life, intense focus on character and behavior, but at its heart, it's a lot like a Mike Myers film that goes on too long. read more...

    White Bird in a Blizzard (2014)

    The only other Gregg Araki movie I've seen to date is Mysterious Skin (2005), which I considered to be one of the best movies of its year. Watching White Bird in a Blizzard, I can see certain similarities in his approach to life in the suburbs, and the way that young people grow up there. It's not an entirely optimistic view; nothing is easy or clean, and happy endings are not common. But kids can get tough and have a way of surviving. The difference between what made Mysterious Skin great and what makes White Bird in a Blizzard merely good is that the new film takes time out to surprise us with a mystery story. Mystery stories are fine, but this mystery is far less interesting than the characters themselves. read more...

      Mississippi Grind (2015)

      This could have been an ordinary road trip/gambling movie, but instead it concerns itself with human frailties, behavior, and desires. It deals in layered characters, operating in a vivid world. The co-writer and co-director team Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson, Sugar, It's Kind of a Funny Story) are great humanists who seem to care less about narrative flow than they do about organic characters. The characters are both rich creations, with intriguing surfaces and complex inner workings. read more...

          Shirkers (2018)

          Sandi Tan's bittersweet Shirkers is a most extraordinary movie-story, telling the story of three friends in Singapore, Sandi, Jasmine, and Sophie, who decide to make a movie when they're barely out of their teens. They receive "help," from a film teacher called Georges, and the film is completed, but then Georges disappears with all the film and materials, leaving the three young women to contend with their strange loss. Tan's writing and directing is wonderfully assured — she worked as a film critic and published a novel in the years since — and the footage from the unfinished "Shirkers" is boldly colorful and frequently striking. She manages to dig a little under the surface of friendships here, exposing flaws as well as virtues. This is a totally captivating, and surprisingly moving film. read more...
