The Current War: Director's Cut

    X

    Miss Sloane (2016)

    Jessica Chastain plays a fascinating role, an unapologetically powerful woman, capable of ugly behavior as well as kindness, and refreshingly unexplained; no flashbacks or psychological origin stories are provided. Her Miss Slaone is a lobbyist, who takes a big demotion in order to fight the gun lobby on a new gun control bill. Her sneaky tactics are the only thing that can take on the enormous budgets and influence of the powerful right-wing group. The screenplay by first-timer Jonathan Perera sounds well-researched, and characters spout interesting political rhetoric back and forth to each other, but the downside is that it doesn't often sound like people speaking; it sounds like dialogue. However, Chastain and the talented cast frequently manage to smooth this out, and eventually generate a decent amount of anticipation. Things come tumbling down during a fairly cliché denouncement, however. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, John Lithgow, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mark Strong, Alison Pill, Jake Lacy, Sam Waterston, and Dylan Baker are among Chastain's worthy colleagues and combatants. Former Weinstein man John Madden directs competently, forgoing much of the shaky-cam and ill pacing he showed on earlier, middlebrow award contenders. read more...

    K-19: The Widowmaker (2002)

    Stuck with an ill-timed release in the summer of 2002, among the popcorn movies, Kathryn Bigelow's intense, harrowing K-19: The Widowmaker received mixed reviews, many of which called the film overly serious and too long. (Not surprising, in a season that promises thrills rather than cold, hard drama.) Now that Bigelow has won an Oscar for Best Director, it's time to give the movie a second chance. read more...

    The Hunting Party (2007)

    Richard Shepard's The Hunting Party takes on the topic of war criminals still at large. It wants to know why the U.S. has been unable to find certain outlaws, when just about any civilian with a passport, the price of a drink and a line of B.S. can do it. But instead of grousing or hand wringing, it becomes a spry, surprising and intelligent comedy. read more...

      F/X (1986)

      This first-rate thriller was kind of a "sleeper" in its day, earning good reviews from Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert, as well as Pauline Kael and Andrew Sarris. It starts with a very clever idea; it likes to play tricks on us, but it never goes off the rails. When a gangster type, Nicholas DeFranco (Jerry Orbach), decides to testify against the mob, the Justice Department cooks up a scheme to make it seem as if DeFranco is dead. So they hire movie special effects guru Rollie Tyler (Bryan Brown) to pull off a fake "murder." read more...

        Steve Jobs (2015)

        As a fictional biopic, Steve Jobs has a lot going for it, and most of it lies in Aaron Sorkin's clever script. Firstly, the movie is honeycombed with Sorkin's deliciously stylized dialogue, which I like, even though I have begun to hear rumblings that people are getting sick of it. Secondly, Sorkin has come up with a winning structure that avoids the usual "highlights" format of most biopics. It takes place, very simply, at three Apple product launches: the Macintosh in 1984, the NeXT box in 1988, and the iMac in 1998. As Sorkin has pointed out, these segments break down to "the king falls," "the king in exile," and "the king returns." read more...
