    Philomena (2013)

    The ever-reliable English filmmaker Stephen Frears teams up with comic actor Steve Coogan for this very nicely balanced and unexpectedly moving "true story." Coogan co-wrote the screenplay and stars as Martin Sixsmith, a cynical, out-of-work journalist who stumbles across an interesting story. As a teen, Philomena became pregnant and was forced to live and work at a convent. The nuns gave up her baby for adoption and have never allowed Philomena to know the child's name or location. Near the child's fiftieth birthday, Philomena (Judi Dench) has decided to speak to the press. read more...

      The Woman in the Window (1944)

      At last, this prime example of Fritz Lang film noir has been released on a Region 1 DVD. Many members of the cast and crew stayed on with Lang to make the better-known Scarlet Street the following year, but The Woman in the Window deserves recognition as well. read more...

      Harriet (2019)

      Many films depicting slavery in the history of the United States can feel punishing, lecturing. For her superb new Harriet, Kasi Lemmons has daringly taken a positive approach, inviting viewers into her narrative, rather than talking down to them. (She has said that Harriet is a "freedom" film, rather than a slavery film.) Equal parts reality and spirituality, the new film echoes Lemmons's remarkable debut feature Eve's Bayou (1997), with its voodoo vibe. Even more miraculous, Lemmons has managed to paint a portrait of a heroic historic figure, high on a pedestal, and yet make her achingly human. read more...

        Twilight (1998)

        This film by Academy Award winning writer and director Robert Benton could be the first great movie of 1998. It makes a wonderful companion piece to his 1977 The Late Show, a well-balanced mix of detective movie, comedy and drama. The two movies are similar in that they are interested in characters that have already been around the block and are drifting through their final days. Benton's characters try not to think too hard about where they are -- and try not to think about not thinking -- but they fail at both. read more...

        Swamp Water (1941)

        In 1940, Jean Renoir fled Nazi-occupied France and came to the United States where, typically, studio heads had no idea how to treat a master filmmaker of his ilk. His first American film, Swamp Water (1941), almost feels like the work of someone else, although it still contains a few of its maker's signature themes, and it's an excellent entertainment in any regard. Ben (Dana Andrews) ventures into the vast, deadly Okefenokee Swamp to find his lost dog, and accidentally runs into escaped fugitive and accused murderer Tom Keefer (Walter Brennan). They eventually become partners and form a trapping business, but Ben's long absences rub both his controlling father, Thursday (Walter Huston), and his fickle sweetheart (Virginia Gilmore) the wrong way. At the same time, he becomes closer to Tom's grown daughter, Julie (Anne Baxter), and begins to promise her a new life when her father returns. Meanwhile, creepy Jesse Wick (John Carradine) begins hanging around Thursday's second wife a bit too much, leading to a confrontation with Ben. Dudley Nichols wrote the screenplay (from a novel by Vereen Bell), and while he delicately balances the novel's intricate plotlines, he also imbues the movie with his trademark seriousness; in this case it works. It elevates the pulp to the level of art. Because of Nichols and because of a selection of recognizable stock players (Carradine, Ward Bond, etc.), many have said that Swamp Water seems like a John Ford film, but moments of delicate humanity, as when Ben steps into the line of fire to prove to Tom that he's really a friend, are all Renoir. read more...
