The Tree of Life

Acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick (THE THIN RED LINE, BADLANDS) brings this story of a Midwestern family in the 1950s and the journey of the eldest son through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years. Dramatic, baffling, beautiful, and brilliant. A visual feast that dares to juxtapose one families tragedy against the entire creation of the cosmos.

Mamma Roma

After many years working in the streets of Roma, the middle-age whore Mamma Roma (Anna Magnani) saves money to buy an upper class apartment, a fruit stand and retires from the prostitution. She brings her teenage son Ettore (Ettore Garofolo), who was raised alone in the country, to live with her, and Ettore becomes her pride and joy. However, the boy that does not want to study or work, joins to idle friends, has a crush on a bitch, and Mamma Roma uses her best but limited efforts to straight Ettore and make him an honest man. However, her past haunts her with tragic consequences.

The Dead Mountaineer's Hotel

A classic of Estonian cinema, this film is based on one of the brothers’ most surprising and entertaining novels, which finds them combining science fiction tropes with the structure and trappings of the detective novel. Policeman Peter Glebsky receives an anonymous call from the Dead Mountaineer’s Hotel in the Alps and soon travels there himself. Soon an avalanche has cut the hotel and its bizarre group of guests off from the rest of the world, and odd things start to happen. Glebsky takes up his investigation, but his rather inflexible methods shed little light on the strange goings-on. Glebsky, who subscribes to the idea of law and order, and the measurability of all things, finds himself facing a world of the supernatural and the indefinable.

Big Time

If you are a Tom Waits fan, Big Time is a treat. Big Time encompasses a chunk of Waits' career that many fans consider seminal. While the earlier, smoother Waits sounded like a poetic, slithery lounge lizard, this Waits became more of a stomping, wheezing, snorting lunatic. Indeed, there's something exciting about the way he snakes his grumbled and screeched words in and around the stomping, pounding beats. When you can catch a few lyrics here and there, they're unfailingly brilliant bits of beautiful poetry, like "the moon left teeth marks across the sky." But Big Time is no mere concert movie. Waits is such a compelling performer, both as an actor and as a musician, he's imminently watchable no matter what he's doing. The movie's big finale is a blowout rendition of perhaps Waits' most beautiful song, "Innocent When You Dream," only he sings it in a bathtub (he dramatically parts the shower curtain at the beginning of the song and closes it again at the end). I think everyone can agree that Big Time is one hell of a show. Source: Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid.
