Cold Pursuit (2019)

Note: After I saw the movie and wrote the following review, Liam Neeson gave an interview in which he made some problematic comments, which led to a full-bore controversy, including the canceling of the red carpet portion of the film's premiere. In the face of this fallout, which entails a great deal of rage and very little understanding, I have opted to leave my review as it was. read more...

The Spirit (2008)

I missed the press screening for The Spirit as well as its Christmas Day opening. I didn't catch up to it until it was all but pronounced dead a couple of weeks later. And as it started I found myself grumbling at the stupid dialogue. But as it went on, I discovered that it had a kind of appealingly dumb, playful quality. It's far more low-key and enjoyable than either Sin City (2005), which Frank Miller co-directed, or 300 (2007), on which he's only credited as the creator of the source material. It moves in a similarly artificial, elastic way, but without the fetishistic need for excessive violence. Here Miller is paying tribute to the great comics pioneer Will Eisner, a man whose work any comics nut worth his newsprint should know. To that end, Miller effectively combines his own style with Eisner's style, which was starkly visual, but also funny. read more...

    Detective Bureau 2-3: Go to Hell Bastards (1963)

    The black sheep Japanese director Seijun Suzuki more or less established his reputation when he made the lowdown, fast-paced, second-gear crime movie Detective Bureau 2-3: Go to Hell Bastards. Irreverent and reckless, it practically sneers at the cinema elite. It's a pretty typical "undercover" movie, in which a stylish private detective Tajima (Jo Shishido) pretends to befriend a gang lord in order to infiltrate the rest of the gang and find a cache of stolen weapons. The gangsters spend a good deal of time checking on Tajima's cover stories -- reluctantly set up by the cops -- and when they're not doing that, they spend a lot of time at clubs watching dancing girls. Then, for a conclusion, we get a showdown and a ticking timer death trap. Suzuki sets up lots of flashy visuals and moments of humor, but they flit by very quickly; he never shows off for its own sake. Star Shishido is the epitome of cocky, taking more care of his appearance and perfectly coifed hair than in exercising caution. But he pulls it off; he's a prime source of the movie's subtle humor. The movie is still fun today, but it definitely has lost some of its original bite. Kino released the DVD in 2009, letterboxed (2.35:1) and anamoprhic, with new English subtitles, but no extras.

    The Specialists (1969)

    I love Sergio Corbucci's Westerns, and I'm usually willing to make some concessions, but something about The Specialists just doesn't quite work. It could be that French star Johnny Halliday just isn't very interesting, at least as a gunslinger. Or it could be those weird hippie characters that just don't seem to fit. It could be the lack of an Ennio Morricone score. Or it could be the way that the simple revenge story — Halliday plays a man named Hud who wishes to avenge the wrongful death of his brother — seems to continually wander off track. Even the title doesn't seem to apply the story. It still has some strong imagery — such as the one-handed villain "El Diablo," or the naked people crawling up the street — and for completists, it will be worth seeing. But beginners should start elsewhere. Kino Lorber released it on Blu-ray for 2020. It comes with an Alex Cox commentary track, and even he seems to be trying very hard to find worthwhile things to talk about. The disc also includes trailers. read more...

    Assassin's Creed (2016)

    Despite a high-class cast and a Shakespearian director, this fantasy-battle movie — based on a video game — is disorienting, makes very little sense, and, worst of all, is a terrible, humorless bore. Director Justin Kurzel and stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard had previously offered a faithful version of Macbeth, and it's a puzzle as to how they went from highbrow to the extremely lowbrow with the barely coherent Assassin's Creed. They have gone from reciting classic verse to Fassbinder fighting shirtless and Cotillard gaping at him from the sidelines. read more...
