They Were Expendable (1945)

Anyone who makes a war movie these days should stop and watch John Ford's They Were Expendable as a prerequisite. At its core, it tells the story of how the Navy's then-new PT boats became a major part of WWII, but that's arguably the least interesting part. Ford shot the film at the tail end of the war, and it may have been the first film to capture the alternating thrills and horrors of combat. read more...

Food, Inc. (2009)

I can't think of a more urgent, day-by-day issue for a feature documentary than food. Directed by Robert Kenner, Food, Inc. plays a bit like a collection of greatest hits from Super Size Me, Fast Food Nation and King Corn. But the film's bright, cheerful tone, colorful graphics and bite-sized snippets will hopefully appeal to larger crowd, thereby spreading this vital information to new areas. read more...

The Homesman (2014)

Based on a classic novel by Glendon Swarthout, who also wrote The Shootist, The Homesman is something close to a great modern-day Western. As evidenced by his last film, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, director Tommy Lee Jones has a keen eye for hard landscapes (including his own weathered face) and emotional compositions. The Homesman is full of striking imagery: the locked, coffin-like coach, fresh new buildings in hardscrabble dirt, or a disturbed grave on a gnarly plain. read more...

    Men in War (1957)

    I'm a huge fan of director Anthony Mann, but not a huge fan of war films, so Mann's Men in War (1957) was a movie I wasn't exactly looking forward to, but knew I'd have to tackle someday, for better or for worse. Thankfully, it turns out to be a very good film, pure Mann, and I'm glad I saw it. read more...

    Bird (1988)

    Any true fan knows about Clint Eastwood's love for jazz music. Many of his urban action films feature jazzy soundtracks, sometimes performed by the man himself (who plays a mean piano). Eastwood made the switch from Hollywood icon to great world director with his viciously underrated Bird (1988). This gentle, moody bio-pic of Charlie Parker (brilliantly played by Forest Whitaker) emphasized slowness and darkness, taking time to explore the corners of Parker's life, rather than zooming over the surface. Diane Venora plays a sympathetic Chan Parker, and Samuel E. Wright is Dizzy Gillespie. read more...
