Luz (2019)

Tilman Singer's Luz, from Germany, is one of the stranger horror movies in recent years, more of an impression than an experience, easier to watch than to describe. A young woman cab driver named Luz (Luana Velis) walks into a police station and starts saying strange things. Meanwhile, a man in a bar, Dr. Rossini (Jan Blurhardt) attracts the attention of a woman, Nora (Julia Riedler), who discovers that he's a psychotherapist, tells him weird stories and buys him odd-looking drinks. Then the man, disoriented, receives a page and goes to work. Luz is in a large room where a woman sits at a desk and a man sits in a recording booth. The doctor arranges a few chairs and hypnotizes Luz, and then she re-creates (I think) the events of earlier in the evening while driving her cab. (To be honest, Luz reminded me a little of Winona Ryder's "Corky" from Jim Jarmusch's Night on Earth.) Then it gets really bizarre. Singer shoots on 16mm and allows bits of dust and wear to show on his images, and his wide, chilly staging and rhythms are meant to recall some of the edgier, moodier horror movies of the 1970s, likely those by David Cronenberg and Dario Argento, rather than any jump-scares or blood or screaming. The 70-minute running time is exactly right, bringing it closer to the realm of experimental horror than anything mainstream. If something like Berberian Sound Studio is more your cup of tea than, say, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, then give Luz a whirl. read more...

High-Rise (2016)

Adapted from J.G. Ballard's 1975 cult favorite novel, this movie starts well, but as the story descends into chaos, the movie follows, losing the thread of what it wants to say and why we should care. read more...

The Ornithologist (2017)

The Portuguese director João Pedro Rodrigues (O Fantasma, Two Drifters, To Die Like a Man) is usually puzzling, and polarizing. I tend to like his films, but he tends to alienate many critics. He's openly gay but doesn't show gay themes in a soft or coddling way. He can be absurd and surreal, but not necessarily at the same time. His new The Ornithologist feels like it tiptoes around territory previously explored by David Lynch, Andrei Tarkovsky, and Alejandro Jodorowsky, and it had me for most of its running time, but as it reaches the final ten or so minutes, it more or less dives off a cliff. It lost me. read more...

Like Me (2018)

Somewhat plotless and more like experimental cinema, this dark, unsettling piece takes an unusual, colorful, and arty look at millennial narcissism and loneliness, with hypnotically compelling results. read more...

Seconds (1966)

John Frankenheimer's Seconds is one of the rare sci-fi films that skimped on special effects and concentrated on ideas. A middle-aged man decides to invest in a company that provides you with a younger face, body and identity. In this case he wakes up as Rock Hudson! He moves to California and becomes a successful artist, but realizes that he has no more answers in this life than he did in his old one. It's a dark vision of humanity and technology but fascinating nonetheless. James Wong Howe's black-and-white cinematography received an Oscar nomination. Paramount released a DVD in 2002 with a great commentary track by director Frankenheimer (The Manchurian Candidate). The Criterion Collection released an updated version in 2013 (both DVD and Blu-ray) with new extras. read more...
