Totally Under Control (2020)

As he has done so effectively many times before, filmmaker Alex Gibney takes a hard, clear, cool-headed look at government corruption, and, in this case, shocking ineptitude and negligence as well. read more...

Strange Victory (1948)

This poetic, essay-like documentary was released in 1948, but remains — crushingly — relevant in 2018. Director Leo Hurwitz combined harrowing footage of WWII and its aftermath with footage of civilians at home, carefully demonstrating how the ideas of hatred and separation that led to the war continue in America after its victory. Or, as the narrator puts it, the ideas of the losers are active among the winners. Strange Victory is a uniquely thoughtful, forward-thinking film, unafraid to point out the basic flaws of racism and cultural discrimination. True to form, the film's enemies, rather than listening to its arguments and responding intelligently, simply tried to shut it down, labeling it "communist" and blacklisting its maker. In the film, Hurwitz crosses images of worried-looking folks on the street with brutal images of destruction, then moves on to a moment of hope: the end of the war. He focuses on babies being born, all equal in their cribs, but notes their differences, and the ways that society will strive to keep them apart and to keep some of them down. He ends with the argument that hope is still in short supply and that the true victory is yet to be won. And, with hatred and racism rampant in the American mainstream today, that argument is still valid. read more...

Collective (2020)

Nanau shoots all of this in Frederick Wiseman style, fly-on-the-wall, although his style feels more active than just observational. The story pulls us in. The characters, from Gazette editor-in-chief Catalin Tolontan and his weary-looking colleague Mirela Neag, to the new Health Minister Vlad Voiculescu, and, strikingly Tedy Ursuleanu, a surviving burn victim who lost part of her hand and is covered with scars. She agrees to pose for a photo shoot that becomes a powerful exhibition. Collective is not a streamlined film; it moves like life, with moments that make your brain explode, and then other moments of stalemate. In the end, it's about the ongoing battle between crusading journalists and corrupt businessmen/politicians, apparently locked in a tie. read more...
