The Master

‘Master’ful filmmaking, yet impenetrable for some.


Drama

Rod Lott
Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master is my least favorite of the director’s half-dozen films. That said, he has yet to make a bad one.

Revenge for Jolly!

‘Revenge’ is a dish best ignored.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Your first sign that Revenge for Jolly! may not be for you: the dead dog hanging in the protagonist’s living room.

There are more.

Amour

Brace yourself for an unflinchingly honest love story.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke isn't the obvious choice for a movie about love at its weightiest and most profound. In previous works like Funny Games, The Piano Teacher and Caché, he has crafted cinematic nipple twists that tweak audiences while examining humankind at its cruelest.

Blue Jasmine

Woody Allen's latest is immersed in melancholy as the tale of one woman's yearning for normalcy.


Drama

Aimee Williams
Cinema has seen its fair share of manic females and nervous breakdowns, but no one captures bourgeois-Anglo neurosis as astutely as Woody Allen.

The Fugitive: 20th Anniversary Edition

Still runs like a charm.


Action

Rod Lott

Although The Fugitive was a monster hit in the summer of 1993, it seems to have been lost to the ages. It shouldn't. Perhaps Warner Home Video's 20th-anniversary Blu-ray will help see to that. Remember, folks, this movie was up for Best Picture at the Academy Awards — an action film!

12 Years a Slave

Steve McQueen's emotionally jarring biopic depicts slavery in a way that few, if any, have ever dared.


Drama

Zach Hale
Slavery was a dark and shameful time in American history — unequivocally the darkest. Yet while the era has been portrayed on the silver screen in countless films, director Steve McQueen (ShameHunger) presents it with unprecedented realism in 12 Years a Slave — one of the most profoundly gut-wrenching, visceral works of 21st-century cinema you're bound to encounter.

Dallas Buyers Club

Matthew McConaughy and Jared Leto turn in award-worthy performances in this HIV/AIDS drama.


Drama

Aimee Williams

Ron Woodroof’s story has not been as extensively acknowledged as documented celebrity cases of HIV/ AIDS (e.g. Anthony Perkins, Magic Johnson, Freddie Mercury) and, until now, has remained in the mainstream media’s peripheral.

Inside Llewyn Davis

The Coen brothers’ new film is a heady, heartfelt character study and period piece. In other words, quintessential Coen.


Drama

Zach Hale
The album artwork for 1963’s The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan was nothing if not iconic. The image of a young Dylan with then-girlfriend Suze Rotolo clinging to his side, walking down a snow-covered street in New York’s Greenwich Village embodied the early ’60s folk movement like no other. It’s also where Inside Llewyn Davis makes its music.
