The Circle (2000)

Just a few weeks ago, the Shooting Gallery film series released Marziyeh Meshkini's and Mohsen Makhmalbaf's The Day I Became a Woman. I was afraid then that no one would see that beautiful and vibrant film because it seemed to be about "battered Iranian women," though it was really about their breathtaking attempts to escape domination. Now comes Jafar Panahi's The Circle, a far more heavyweight, but equally brilliant film about women whose escape seems unlikely. read more...

Foxtrot (2018)

Of the batch of 2017 "official Oscar submissions" from various countries — usually a dreary, self-important lot — I can safely say that I liked Samuel Maoz's Foxtrot, from Israel, best. It did not receive a nomination, of course, because it's far edgier, more artistic, and more interesting than the stuff that usually wins. read more...

Ida (2014)

I first learned of Polish filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski in 2001 when I saw his Last Resort as part of the Shooting Gallery series. I missed his next movie, My Summer of Love, released three years later. Eight years later, I caught his next one, The Woman in the Fifth, on DVD. And now here is Ida. From what we can tell, Pawlikowski makes movies that are less than 90 minutes, when possible, and yet they unfold slowly, building atmosphere. He's an interesting director, but based on what I hd seen, I never would have expected anything as great as Ida on the horizon. From its first few frames, it's clear that this is an incredible movie, truly mesmerizing. I think it's a near-masterpiece, at least. read more...

Come and See (1985)

In a perfect world, Come and See, opening June 29, 2001, at the Roxie for a week's run, would put an end to all World War II movies. Indeed, though I was a huge movie buff as far back as 1985 and kept track of the comings and goings of new movies, I'd never heard of Come and See until now. If it had received a wider release, it certainly would have diminished the impact of something like Platoon, and today, it makes Pearl Harbor look absolutely useless. read more...
