3 Classic Films by Claude Chabrol

21 February 2017 1:40 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Being called the French Hitchcock does Claude Chabrol a disservice, as his dark thrillers approach mystery and suspense almost completely through character, not cinematics. These three very good 1990s productions are completely different in tone and approach, and each showcases a stunning French actress.

Berlin Film Review: ‘Devil’s Freedom’

12 February 2017 6:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Don’t be fooled by his film’s slim running time: Everardo González, Mexican documentarian and laureate of various international festivals, can pack an awful lot of bleakness into 74 unhurried minutes. But thanks to a simple, chillingly inspired device, “Devil’s Freedom” — a mournful investigation into the phenomenon of Mexico’s “disappeared” from the perspectives of those bereaved by, and those responsible for, some truly barbaric acts of kidnapping, torture, and murder — is deeply compelling despite toiling in the grimmest recesses of human behavior. González’s subjects, whether perpetrators or victims, all wear masks: grotesque, flesh-colored balaclavas with crude cutouts for eyes, nose, and mouth. This single flourish, without compromising the authenticity of the first-person testimony that forms the bulk of the film, lends a surreal cast to the visuals, and introduces a host of disturbing and provocative associations.

The masks alternately suggest the bandages of burns victims or bring »

Cinema St. Louis’ Classic French Film Festival March 10th -26th at Webster University

30 January 2017 7:07 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Ninth Annual Robert Classic French Film Festival — co-presented by Cinema St. Louis and the Webster University Film Series — celebrates St. Louis’ Gallic heritage and France’s cinematic legacy. The featured films span the decades from the 1920s through the mid-1990s, offering a revealing overview of French cinema.

The fest is annually highlighted by significant restorations, which this year includes films by two New Wave masters: Jacques Rivette’s first feature, “Paris Belongs to Us,” and François Truffaut’s cinephilic love letter, “Day for Night.” The fest also provides one of the few opportunities available in St. Louis to see films projected the old-school, time-honored way, with both Alain Resnais’ “Last Year at Marienbad” and Robert Bresson’s “Au hasard Balthazar” screening from 35mm prints. Even more traditional, we also offer a silent film with live music, and audiences are sure to delight in the Poor People of Paris »

Let me herewith take a break from new discs to review an Italian release from six years ago, a movie that for years we knew only as Atom Age Vampire. Until sporadic late- night TV showings appeared, it existed for us ’60s kids as one or two interesting photos in Famous Monsters magazine. Forry Ackerman steered away from adult films, with the effect that »

'Things to Come' Review: Isabelle Huppert Lends Midas Touch to Mid-Life Crisis

11 January 2017 1:59 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Isabelle Huppert is stirring Oscar talk (and she damn well should) for the potent provocation of her acting in Elle, directed by Dutch wildman Paul Verhoeven. But to see her in Things to Come, as a character who is the polar opposite of the powerhouse she plays in that story of rape and revenge, is to cement Huppert's reputation as one of the best actresses on the planet. Written and directed by Mia Hansen-Love (Eden), the film gives the legendary French star the role of Nathalie, a Paris philosophy professor whose academic husband, »

After writing up an earlier Mod disc release of the 1961 movie Something Wild, I received a brief but welcome email note from its director:

“Dear Glenn Erickson,

Thank you for your profound appreciation of Something Wild.

If possible, I would appreciate if you could send

me a copy of your review by email.

Sincerely yours, Jack Garfein

Somewhere back East (or in London), the Actors Studio legend Jack Garfein had found favor with the review. Although »
