    The Big Trail (1930)

    The Big Trail (1930) is an essential item in any history of the American Western for two reasons. The first is that it was John Wayne's starring debut, and the second is that it introduced a widescreen process called "Fox Grandeur." However, both of those things failed with the immense, costly failure of the movie. Wayne would slink back to the purgatory of bad "B" movies for nine more years (until Stagecoach), and widescreen movies didn't show up again until 1958. Part of the high cost is that many scenes were filmed twice, once for the 35mm camera and once for the 70mm camera. Comparisons of certain shots show that landscapes were better served by the bigger format and that close-ups were more complete in the smaller format (they were cropped for the wide format). Director Raoul Walsh's compositions are amazing, using clutter and landscape and space to fascinatingly emotional effect. (It was far too expensive and troublesome to actually move a camera.) However, the storytelling is leaden and numbingly slow, relying heavily on dialogue to dole out information. Subsequently, the actors are stuck performing as if in a community theater play. Walsh picked up the pieces and made another movie with Wayne ten years later, Dark Command (1940), and then made a much more psychologically nuanced Western, Pursued (1947). read more...

      Dreamgirls (2006)

      Directed by Bill Condon (who wrote the screenplay for Chicago) and adapted from the Broadway stage, this lackluster neo-musical only partially succeeds at cramming the oversized material into the cinema's more intimate setting. read more...

      NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage (2014)

      Jeremy Whelehan's documentary NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage tells the story of the world tour of Sam Mendes' production of Richard III, starring Kevin Spacey. It looks like it would have been a hell of a show in real life, but the documentary leaves me with several troubling reactions. read more...

        Get on Up (2014)

        The biopic about James Brown was only inevitable, I suppose, though it's a good thing that Chadwick Boseman landed the role of the Godfather of Soul in Get on Up. He's magnificent, and effortlessly conveys an awesome performance energy throughout the movie. (Boseman also played Jackie Robinson in last year's underrated 42.) Like nearly any major Hollywood biopic it's this centerpiece performance that drives the movie. read more...
