New York Film Festival 2021

I skipped last year’s New York Film Festival entirely because I couldn’t get my head around seeing the films virtually, which might seem odd since I’d been watching everything — new and old movies — on my computer screen since the previous March when theaters shut down. I didn’t even bother to check the […]

Velvet Underground Documentary

Todd Haynes is not a joker. He took the task of creating the perhaps definitive Velvet Underground documentary very seriously. “The Velvet Underground”, is a sparsely titled, restrained, bleak, avant guarde mirror reflecting the velvet evolution: the conception, birth, life and death of the most important band that ever was. It is 180 minutes of […]

Halloween Kills

Halloween Kills brings the terror back to Haddonfield in the sequel to 2018’s Halloween – the true sequel to the 1978 classic of the same name. Like the 1981 sequel, this story picks up the same night the events of 2018’s terror took place. We last saw Michael Myers trapped in a burning basement of […]

The Sunday Intertitle: Pilgrim Versus the World

At four reels, THE PILGRIM isn’t quite a short and doesn’t seem quite a feature, but the IMDb classes it as one. Excitingly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen it, not all the way through. Chaplin is recycling the escaped convict routine from THE ADVENTURER and having another go at the mistaken identity gag from […]

The Big Mouth

I was curious about Errol Morris’ AMERICAN DHARMA, about Trump advisor and Breitbart exec Steve Bannon, but not apparently curious enough to see it when it was new. I finally checked it out. Essentially, it conforms to the conclusions I’ve already drawn about Morris’s filmmaking. When he was making documentaries about ordinary people, he had […]

“The Mad Women’s Ball” (2021)

Treatment of mental illnesses has never been straightforward. Through prescribed medicines, it keeps the insane mind in control, but only temporarily, until the sanity goes away completely. There is always the question, whether doctors do everything possible to help the patients before releasing them back to society, or it’s […]

‘Ratcatcher’: Trauma Never Fades

The notion that a first-time filmmaker could blend the rugged, depressive existence of scrappy children struggling to get by in one of Glasgow’s most oppressive neighborhoods with a bizarre dream sequence that includes a mouse tied to a balloon flying to the moon and becoming part of a mouse colony is just as staggering today […]

“The French Dispatch” (2021)

Only a few filmmakers can deliver a heavy concept and an intelligent story using a humoristic approach. Whether it’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, Fantastic Mr Fox, Isle of Dogs, or The Royal Tenenbaums, Wes Anderson has created a unique collection of films with a peculiar approach to storytelling – […]
