The Look of Silence (2015)

Joshua Oppenheimer's follow-up, or companion piece, to his extraordinary The Act of Killing, The Look of Silence feels slightly smaller-scale, which is not necessarily a bad thing in this case. It follows an Indonesian man, an optician, who interviews various individuals who were purportedly involved with the killings of so-called communists in the 1960s. The man's brother was killed during that time, and he proves to be an assertive, canny interviewer; one subject angrily says that he's even pushier than "Josh." Oppenheimer includes several asides, visits with the interviewer's century-old parents, and other striking images that allow time for the atrocities, and the human memory, to sink in. The Act of Killing was nominated for an Oscar, but did not win, and this one could make up for it. read more...

Try and Get Me! (1950)

Cy Endfield was a fascinating figure in American film. He was discovered by Orson Welles' Mercury Theater for his talent with card tricks, and was allowed on the sets of some of Welles' films. He made short films and wrote scripts, and was involved in a series of "Joe Palooka" films before he made his mark in 1950 with the film noir The Underworld Story, and this movie. Try and Get Me! is a powerful condemnation of mob mentality and a call for kindness and reason, and it was immediately considered Communist propaganda. But Endfield refused to name names and left the country, working out of England for the rest of his career. read more...

99 Homes (2015)

The acclaimed indie filmmaker Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo), who regularly and bravely focuses on heartbreaking trials of life while keeping his stories rooted in humanity, turns in some of his finest work. A work of great power and subtlety, 99 Homes manages to talk about one of today's most pressing and troubling issues without getting preachy or overbearing. At the same time, the movie borrows the classical structure of the Faust story, but still manages to feel immediate and relevant. read more...

Citizenfour (2014)

Sometimes a documentary goes beyond all critical appraisal and simply needs to be seen by every American. Although I understand that a theatrical release gives it more credibility, frankly it ought to be shown free, online. Perhaps in a few months, it will. read more...

I Am Not Your Negro (2016)

In a year of remarkable documentaries on racism — coming, apparently, just in time — Raoul Peck's I Am Not Your Negro isn't as sensational or essential as O.J.: Made in America, nor as far-reaching and emotional as Ava Duvernay's 13th, but it's certainly the most scholarly. (The trio should be taken together as an important snapshot of racism as an inextricable part of American history.) Director Peck (Lumumba) bases his film on an unfinished manuscript by author James Baldwin (1924-1987), detailing Baldwin's reminiscences of and friendships with civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. Samuel L. Jackson narrates from the manuscript, using a surprisingly effective, moderated voice, and matching Baldwin's own beautiful, intelligent manner of speaking. This flows over a stream of powerful images, archival footage of Baldwin speaking about race with clarity that was unheard of at the time, difficult for whites to understand (perhaps less so now, but still difficult). A short capsule review cannot do this documentary's depth of intelligence justice, but suffice to say that it uses history and literature to peel back old wounds and reveal fresh ones. read more...
