Two Lovers (2009)

Here are two things I think I know about James Gray. One is that he's probably obsessed with American movies of the 1970s; he misses the days when movies used to be gritty and were actually about characters. The second is that he's currently one of the darlings of French movie critics and audiences. His movies are routinely hailed as masterpieces there, and get considerably more box office attention than they do here. (Gray's latest, Two Lovers, opened in France last November.) Here's another thing: Gray's earlier movies (The Yards, We Own the Night) seemed to me to overtly copy the gritty style of 1970s movies, but the more experience he gets, the more genuinely emotional his films grow. I've liked each of his films better than the last, and this one is now my favorite. read more...

Breaking the Waves (1996)

I'm not an expert on Lars von Trier's Breaking the Waves. That honor belongs to my friend, and a great ex-film critic, Rob Blackwelder, who saw the film some dozen times and considers it to be the greatest film he's ever seen. (You can read Rob's original review here.) I've only seen it once, and I don't think I ever need to see it again, but I would concur that it is indeed an outstanding film. It's one of von Trier's best and purest expressions of his disturbed psyche. It's cruel, but also humane; it's depressing, but also spiritually uplifting. read more...

If Beale Street Could Talk (2018)

Barry Jenkins follows up his glorious Moonlight with this drama, and while it doesn't quite match up -- not much could -- it's still an elegant, meticulous film, heartbreakingly alive, and flowing with poetry. Based on James Baldwin's 1974 novel of the same name, If Beale Street Could Talk is about a young woman, Tish (KiKi Layne), who becomes engaged to her childhood friend Fonny (Stephan James) and becomes pregnant, but then Fonny is arrested and jailed for a crime he did not commit. The movie is filled with virtuoso sequences, handsome camera moves and disquieting use of sound, and it contains at least one truly great performance, by Regina King as Tish's mother. It feels sometimes chilly and brainy, and a second viewing may not be an inviting prospect, but it's a highly accomplished piece of filmmaking that may yet stand the test of time. read more...
