Freeheld (2015)

Julianne Moore won her first Oscar for a not-very-good disease-of-the-week movie that everyone has surely forgotten about by now. It was a frustrating victory for an actress that has been great for decades and has given far greater performances in at least a dozen far greater movies. Now, as if encouraged by this dubious honor, she has done another disease-of-the-week movie, Freeheld, less than a year later. But this time it's coupled with a prestigious "based on a true story" issue. read more...

Lion (2016)

Lion is middlebrow mediocrity served up by the Weinsteins on a silver platter for awards season. Directed by Garth Davis, a former maker of commercials, Lion begins by asking us to watch nearly an hour of the misery, hardship, and hopelessness of a sweetly adorable young boy (Sunny Pawar); it all has a "isn't this heartbreaking?" tone. Finally, the boy grows into Dev Patel, with a beard and long, flowing hair that cascades over his forehead in moments of emotional distress. Then we spend roughly another 40 minutes as he anguishes over his real parents, and how to find them. These scenes mostly consist of Dev clicking around on Google Earth, pushing pins into a map, and occasionally weeping. Then we get the reunion scene, which — highlighted by Davis's obsessive need to jump-cut every second-and-a-half — does not have the power it should. Nicole Kidman is getting Oscar buzz as the adoptive mom who has the courage to appear un-beautiful onscreen. Rooney Mara co-stars as the hero's girlfriend whose entire state of existence depends on whatever mood he's in. It was adapted from an autobiography, and there are photos at the end to reassure us that this was, indeed, based on a true story. I doubt the true story is as trite as this movie. read more...

Tokyo Godfathers (2003)

Director Satoshi Kon last year moved anime in a new direction with his amazing Millennium Actress. Telling the story of an aging movie star, he avoided the usual post-apocalyptic anime clichés and invented a whole slew of new ones. Unfortunately, some clunky artwork kept the film from truly succeeding. read more...
