Story of a Love Affair (1950)

In 1950, Michelangelo Antonoini had just finished with a series of short documentaries, and his surprising feature debut Story of a Love Affair (a.k.a. Cronaca di un amore) showed his style almost fully-formed. In a way, it prefigures Antonioni's masterpiece L'Avventura (1960), but it also owes a debt to films noir and crime films like Visconti's Ossessione (1943). read more...

Prick Up Your Ears (1987)

Stephen Frears' Prick Up Your Ears is still one of the better examples of a filmed biopic, focusing on one dramatic aspect of a famous person's life, rather than a cradle-to-grave compressing of an entire existence. Rebellious, swaggering playwright Joe Orton (Gary Oldman) shocked audiences with his plays during his brief 34 years, but this movie focuses mainly on his long-term relationship with Kenneth Halliwell (Alfred Molina), who was seemingly his polar opposite, fastidious and dissatisfied. (Both performances are excellent.) Orton did what he wanted, and took lovers on the side, but he and Kenneth lived together, fought, and were seemingly inseparable. Screenwriter Alan Bennett and director Frears don't shy away from the domestic details (rare and courageous, I might add, for 1987), and they create a vivid, prickly, and sometimes funny relationship. Wallace Shawn plays a present day writer who is researching Orton after his death, and Vanessa Redgrave plays Orton's agent. On their TV show, Siskel and Ebert both chose this as one of the year's ten best films. Olive Films released it on Blu-ray in 2015. read more...

Head-On (2005)

In Fatih Akin's earlier film In July, the German-born director took an old-fashioned road movie romance (a variation on It Happened One Night) and gave it a craggy, sun-baked sweetness. From the first 40 minutes of his new film, Head-On, it looks like he's going to do the same -- until he blindsides you with something new. It's a strange effect; he gets us to relax and look forward to something comfortable and routine, but then snatches it away and delivers something darker. Probably the first reaction is to resist, but that would be amistake. Head-On is one powerful film. read more...
