Bus Stop (1956)

Joshua Logan's Bus Stop marked a dramatic departure for Marilyn Monroe. She broadens her acting chops in the role of singer Cherie who meets a pushy and irrepressible cowboy (Don Murray), in town for the rodeo. It's disturbing to watch Murray stalking and tormenting her, but everything works out in the end. Logan's impressive Cinemascope work captures the pathos of the story rather than just the furniture and landscapes as other early, less imaginative widescreen movies did. Bus Stop was a favorite of Jean-Luc Godard and the other French New Wave film critics in the 1950s. Murray received an Oscar nomination for his performance. read more...

Canyon Passage (1946)

After making his mark with three black-and-white horror masterworks under producer Val Lewton at RKO, director Jacques Tourneur went over to Universal to make this full-color Western, and the results are not quite what I expected. Canyon Passage isn't exactly dynamic, but it is at least rich in mood and texture. While it contains very few traditional Western sequences, the total of its parts still feels quite satisfying. It's based on a novel by Ernest Haycox — whose short story also provided the basis for Stagecoach — and Tourneur and screenwriter Ernest Pascal do a fine job of compressing the story's nuances into its cinematic tapestry. read more...

The High Note (2020)

Director Nisha Ganatra's follow up to her Late Night (2019) contains a similar dynamic — the female relationship between a newcomer and an established professional in the entertainment industry — suggesting an interesting pattern. But The High Note is no carbon copy; Ganatra's style allows for an easy, lightweight entertainment while still focusing on organic, three-dimensional characters. Moreover, the film's portrayal of the music biz feels authentic, which is rarer in these kinds of films than one might imagine. Dakota Johnson stars as Maggie, the harried assistant to pop diva Grace Davis (Tracee Ellis Ross), fetching her power drinks and personal things from the pharmacy. Maggie dreams of being a producer, while Grace wishes to do some new material, rather than the greatest-hits shows she has been doing. Meanwhile, her manager, Jack (Ice Cube, in a hilarious role-reversal), pushes her to take a long-term Las Vegas residence. And Maggie discovers the silken-voiced David (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) and begins working with him, not telling Grace about her extracurricular activities. Of course, it all comes to a head, but in a smooth, respectful way. The best part is that neither woman has to be knocked down to size, as in movies like The Devil Wears Prada, but rather, they wind up supporting each other. Bill Pullman co-stars, great in a lovely sequence, but Zoe Chao plays a fairly typical "best friend" character, whose only concern is Maggie's happiness. Star Ross is actually the daughter of Diana, and she makes her singing debut here, with a pretty catchy song, "Love Myself." read more...

The Other Love (1947)

Occasionally some of the manliest of "B" movie directors ended up directing so-called "women's pictures," and the results sometimes came out like The Other Love, a vaguely interesting footnote in movie history. read more...
