ROCCO and HIS BROTHERS FULL MOVIE

Among other things,  Rocco & His Brothers is the story of a face. Not the face you see above, which a woman’s decorated hand is reaching to caress. That face belongs to Spiro Focas, cast as Vincenzo Parondi. Vincenzo’s visage, along with the rest of him, has already settled into lifelong complacency when the rest […]

Paris, 13th District – Official Trailer | HD | IFC Films

Jacques Audiard’s dramatic romcom has passion, laughs, and real tears. “Paris, 13th District” is about one man and three women. Unlike “The Other Woman,” it’s not dumb or degrading or miserable. It’s a smart and often whimsical French comedy with the kind of spark that Noah Baumbach or Whit Stillman would enjoy. Matter of fact, […]

Messy sketchy satire from France “Bloody Oranges”

BLOODY ORANGES

A satire of interconnected vignettes — sketches — tied together in a loopy, bloody-minded State of France farce of a story, “Bloody Oranges” won’t be to most tastes. Discerning its meaning and what the filmmaker and his uninhibited, Comedie Francaise-spangled cast had it mind for their “targets” isn’t always obvious. But if you’re down for […]

TITANE | Official Trailer | Exclusively on MUBI

Malleable. The plot will be tricky to describe without breaching spoiler territory, but this is about a father (Vincent Lindon) who gets to see his long-lost son again… or does he? Now, this has been getting very positive word-of-mouth, and I managed to walk into it cold. The trailer doesn’t even begin to tell you […]

Stumbling across any Akira Kurosawa film you’ve missed is an unexpected delight, and the film noir “Stray Dog” has the added pleasure of being an early showcase of the director, his muse — Toshiro Mifune — and his other rep company regular, Takashi Shimura. It’s a police procedural as fascinating for its depiction of post-war […]

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 […]
