Down in the Delta (1998)

It's hard to imagine poet/actress/author Maya Angelou, on top of all her many other achievements, saying, "you know, what I really want to do is direct." Yet direct she does, and makes a fine job of it with Down in the Delta, starring Alfre Woodard and Wesley Snipes. At first glance, Down in the Delta may seem like a TV-disease-of-the-week movie and I was not thrilled about having to see it. But, sitting there in the dark, I became tremendously moved by the movie, and I have not forgotten its power. read more...

Grace of My Heart (1996)

The fourth feature film by indie director Allison Anders (Gas Food Lodging, Mi Vida Loca), Grace of My Heart is a sprawling, heartrending, music-driven soap opera, with a rare and gorgeous leading performance by the underrated Illeana Douglas. She plays Edna Buxton, who dreams of becoming a singer, but who runs into the chauvinism of the late 1950s and early 1960s. With the new showbiz name "Denise Waverly," she winds up working at the Brill Building as a songwriter, making hits for others. A series of men drift in and out of her life, and pregnancies happen. The movie soars during some of its song performances, like the closeted lesbian Kelly Porter (Bridget Fonda) singing "My Secret Love" or Denise herself finding her place in the world singing the incredible "God Give Me Strength." The movie takes its time, finding space between the images for a deep, bittersweet feeling. Matt Dillon plays a Brian Wilson-like singer-songwriter (a Theremin is used!). John Turturro plays Denise's fast-talking boss, Eric Stoltz is a slimy songwriter, and Bruce Davison is a DJ. Martin Scorsese, who was dating Douglas at the time, executive produced, and his regular editor Thelma Schoonmaker helped out as well. Kino Lorber's 2020 Blu-ray release comes with a commentary track by Anders, a behind-the-scenes featurette, deleted scenes, and trailers for this and other titles. read more...

Rabbit Hole (2010)

Howie likes going to his group therapy meetings, shared with other parents that have lost children, even though the majority of them spend too much time talking about God. Becca gets fed up with these meetings, but Howie keeps going and forms a small bond with Gaby (Sandra Oh), a longtime veteran of the group. Meanwhile, Becca -- who quit her job to be a full-time mother -- has a much harder time being in the house, and looking at the myriad of reminders. One day, she spots the teenage driver, Jason (Miles Teller), who accidentally struck and killed her boy. She gets the idea to follow him and speak to him... not to blame him, but just to find some kind of connection. read more...

Pilgrimage (1933)

Certain John Ford scholars consider Pilgrimage to be one of his best films, if not his best. But outside of John Ford's biggest fans, the film is not well known, perhaps because, at a glance, it's rather untypical of that great American filmmaker. First off, it's not a tough guy movie; it's actually a "women's picture," and it even focuses on a "lady of a certain age" rather than a young, beautiful starlet. That lady is Mrs. Hannah Jessop, played by the extraordinary Henrietta Crosman, who was best known for her stage work. Ford scholars agree that the director was fond of his "mother" characters in movies, but Mrs. Jessop is something different, showing the dark side of parenting. read more...
