Brute Force

It’s all right there in the title. Burt Lancaster stars as a state-prison convict under the thumb of a sadistic guard captain (a fantastic Hume Cronyn). Only a long-shot escape plan might relieve the pressure. Jules Dassin (The Naked City, Rififi) overcomes the static tendencies of the prison picture with flashbacks, a rogue’s g more »

Film writer Alex Fields pegs it as a giallo, and once you see it, you can’t unsee it. William Friedkin’s controversial murder mystery set in New York’s gay leatherman underground just before AIDS isn’t a Hollywood prestige product gone awry—like its low-budget Italian contemporaries, it’s a lurid slice of criminal lowlife where more »


All About Eve

It isn’t quite "Rashomon", but "All About Eve" forever codified a similarly useful and durable concept—the suckup who secretly wants to replace you.

The Metropolitan Opera: La Forza del Destino

Army of Darkness

Sam Raimi was wise to stop here. Bruce Campbell’s jutting hero’s jawline and straight-man comedy chops propelled the Evil Dead franchise forward into a time-traveling medieval lark where the yuks outnumber the icks, eeks, and whoas during a final battle between good-enough and evil. It lacks most of the first two films’ kinetic more »

How do we regard "Audition" in 2023? One could argue that its depiction of its female lead (Eihi Shiina) is sexist at best. But post #MeToo, smug older men holding fake film auditions to find a pretty young wife for one of them (Ryo Ishibashi) plays even worse than it did 25 years ago. And Takashi Miike’s subsequent films make i more »

Das Boot

Wolfgang Petersen...brings to this film a careful, thoughtful, sympathetic tone, and a great deal of verisimilitude.

Mr. Petersen pays great attention to the sights, sounds and smells that characterize the U- more »


Frida Kahlo

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Pandora’s Box

One of the masters of early German cinema, G. W. Pabst had an innate talent for discovering actresses (including Greta Garbo).

"....Watching ‘Eraserhead’ today, what emerges is the sheer, immersive clarity of David Lynch’s vision, the sense of a world unlike our own and yet inextricably bound to it: a world in which all the light has been sucked out, leaving only horror and isolation, desperation and unattainable dreams.
