    The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018)

    With an earthy, realistic tone, this timely drama about gay-conversion therapy is fairly straightforward; it's geared toward a YA audience, but it's patient and warmly sympathetic enough for others. read more...

      Arnold Schwarzenegger and Scoot McNairy give powerful performances in this dire, downbeat drama, but the filmmaking frequently undermines them, choosing shortcuts over deeper, more soulful exploration. read more...

      45 Years (2015)

      Geoff (Tom Courtenay) and Kate Mercer (Charlotte Rampling) have been married 45 years and are preparing for their anniversary celebration when Geoff receives a letter. Apparently the body of his old lover (a woman he knew before his wife) has been found, preserved in the ice below a mountain. From there, 45 Years doesn't really go where you might expect. There are no adventures or expeditions to the high country and no dramatic reveals of frozen bodies. Rather, director Andrew Haigh (Weekend) concentrates on the small emotional intricacies and intimacies that build up over a long period of time between two people. They know each other as well as any two people could possibly know anyone, and yet, here they are, still learning. Most of the struggles in this story are subtle and internal and only the smallest flickers of emotion by the performers reveal that anything is going on. The final moments are almost mundane, until we realize that everything that has happened, has built to it. Overall, 45 Years lacks the power of the very similar The Dead, and, to me, Rampling has always been a little too cool, but this is still an admirable achievement. read more...

      Capernaum (2018)

      I saw lots of fine foreign language films in 2018, but the Academy saw fit to nominate this relentlessly hopeless gut-punch of a movie instead. Nadine Labaki's Capernaum begins as a young boy, Zain (Zain Al Rafeea), attempts to sue his parents for giving birth to him. Interesting. But then the film then flashes back to his entire miserable existence, viewed through wobbling hand-held camerawork to emphasize how realistic the rottenness is. He tries to protect his older sister, who has just begun menstruating, from being handed over to a creepy shop merchant to become his plaything, but he fails. The sister later dies. He then runs away, finds a brief respite looking after the toddler of an African refugee, Rahil (Yordanos Shiferaw), until Rahil leaves one day and never returns (she was arrested). Zain must then look after the little boy, Yonas (Boluwatife Treasure Bankole) himself. He scrounges in the streets, sells drugs, and does whatever he can, but all ends in atrocity and sadness anyway. Aside from getting awards, movies like this make me wonder: why would anyone want to either make this, or sit through it? (Why put the kids through making it?) It's unflinching, and it has the courage to face things that are really going on in the world, but where's the art? Where's the filmmaker's personality? What's it here for? Weirdly, another of this year's nominees, Hirokazu Kore-eda's Shoplifters takes on a similar subject but does so with a great deal more grace and poetry; it's a far more watchable film. Capernaum doesn't even offer the hope that someone who sees it will actually do anything to help; it's that pessimistic. It leaves you feeling wrung-out, guilty, and doomed. read more...

      Shoplifters (2018)

      The Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda is probably the closest thing to the spirit of Yasujiro Ozu we have, having made several beautiful, contemplative stories about families of all sorts, and especially non-traditional families. For his newest film, Shoplifters, which won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, he has gone back to a kind of messagy storytelling, evident in my least-favorite film of his, the otherwise highly acclaimed Nobody Knows. But this time, he has more effortlessly entwined his message and the emotional centers of his characters, and it flows smoothly, even if it's often rough going. read more...
