1. A Month of Sundays Film Review
Frank Mollard thinks he receives a phone call from heaven when he hears his mother's voice on the line. It's actually a kindly librarian who misdialed, but the two strike up an unlikely friendship in this gentle and quirky film starring Anthony LaPaglia and Julia Blake.
2. Yellow Sky Film Review
Gregory Peck plays a bad man redeemed by love in this powerful Western set in 1867, from "A Star is Born" director William Wellman.
3. Border Incident Film Review
A surprisingly contemporary crime drama produced in 1949, "Border Incident" stars Ricardo Montalban as a Mexican police agent who goes undercover to capture the murderers of Mexicans working in the California agricultural industry.
4. Elvis and Nixon Film Review
The unlikely meeting between President Richard Nixon and pop superstar Elvis Presley is creatively re-imagined in this film from director Liza Johnson.
5. Haunted Screens - German Expressionism in Film
German Expressionist films, produced between 1913 and 1933, influenced American film noir and continue to inspire filmmakers, including Tim Burton and Ridley Scott. I attended a museum exhibit that displayed set designs and production stills from groundbreaking features such as "Metropolis".
6. The Hollow Point Film Review
An Arizona border town is rocked by violence when a drug cartel assassin comes to town. Ian McShane and Patrick Wilson star as small-town law enforcement trying to contain crime that includes weapons smuggling and murder.
7. Imperium Film Review
Daniel Radcliffe sheds his Harry Potter persona, and his British accent, in this disturbing drama from writer-director Daniel Ragussis. Radcliffe plays an introverted FBI agent who goes undercover to infiltrate the white supremacist movement and prevent an act of domestic terrorism.
8. Sunrise Film Review
As a child, filmmaker Partho Sen-Gupta was the victim of an attempted kidnapping. He explores the subject of missing children and the devastating effects on their parents in his rain-soaked, neo-noir film "Sunrise".
9. In Order of Disappearance Film Review
A typical revenge thriller is the cinematic equivalent of fast food: comforting, predictable, and instantly forgettable. “In Order of Disappearance”, a violent winter tale set amidst endless expanses of white, is more substantial fare.
10. Downstairs Film Review
"Downstairs" proves that silent star John Gilbert had the ability to adjust to the new sound medium and the cynical zeitgeist of Depression-era America. A conniving chauffeur profits by exploiting women both financially and sexually in this 1932 film.
