Syed Ahmad Afzal co-writes and directs this darkly funny drama about blood theft in Karnal. In Hindi.

Made in France, and in French, by the American-born Bob Swaim. The title refers to that alienated and endangered figure, the police informer, called la balance in underworld parlance for his ability to tip the crime-battle in favor of the police; and the storyline concerns the efforts of the elite ...

The Chicano cultural background, abundantly detailed, adds some unusual seasonings to the familiar tale of the singing star extinguished in his prime -- in the same plane crash, in this case, as Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper. (There are also brief impersonations of a couple of other members of ...

Another Jacques Rivette marathon (four hours long: not a personal high), a marathon for strollers, naturellement, across an arid and a frigid terrain. Roughly a novella's worth of material has here been so stretched out as to lose all meaningful contour: exactly the opposite of what we want from a ...

Once you get past the temporary insanity of the premise — escaped killer takes mother and son prisoner in their own home and quickly becomes the lover she craves and the father he needs — the weird sincerity of the performances from Josh Brolin, Kate Winslet, and Gattlin Griffith may ...

In outline, it sounds like a children's story an adult could endorse and enjoy. But "in detail" is another matter. A self-absorbed teenager, put out at having to babysit her little brother, invokes the goblins to take him away (she has been rehearsing a play coincidentally called The Labyrinth, about ...

Come for the movie, stay for the message. It’s 1963, and an ambitious prosecutor — and one of the few good Germans in Naziland — thinks it time to finally alert a nation of orders-following, Holocaust-denying Huns to the existence of Auschwitz. Alexander Fehling (imagine a young John Wayne with ...

Pedro Almodóvar's fans, assuming the existence of these, should be delighted to find out that this early (1982) effort is a virtual seed-packet of ideas that sprouted up in his later and wider-circulated efforts. (Exhibit A: it would appear to be here, and not in Law of Desire, that Almodóvar ...

The homosexual proprietor of a homosexual nightclub, and long-time lover of his star drag queen, learns that the son he sired twenty years earlier in a mad moment of heterosexual experimentation is engaged to be married. Complications, as you would guess, ensue. This is French sex farce of a type ...

Enemy agents, multiple stiffs, and a missing microfilm capsule are not apt to strike fans of the earlier movie as constituting the most logical sequel. Still, these fans should get their fill of forced sentiment and silliness on the subject of two aging homosexuals who fit in with no one ...

Not about a lacemaker but an apprentice beautician, this sentimental tragedy is quite perceptive, if also rather inconsequential and narrowly focussed, in its observation of the various discomforts that arise from such social crises as when one's roommate strips naked in the public streets, the noises of lovemaking filter loud ...

Cool-headed, steady-handed piece of filmmaking, from Claude Chabrol. The narrative is efficiently gotten off the mark ("Let me explain the situation ...") in a pre-credits scene in which the ladylike Jacqueline Bisset, well at home in the French language, interviews the rather strange-seeming (and always fascinating) Sandrine Bonnaire for the ...

Somewhat on the principle of it taking a thief to catch a thief, a French businessman sends a klutz to find a klutz: his own daughter who has disappeared in Acapulco. (There proves to be little difficulty finding Mexicans who can converse fluently in French.) Pierre Richard, as the second ...

The story of the mousy white-collar worker who falls in love with a prostitute, made by Jean Renoir in 1931, was remade by Fritz Lang in 1945, under the title Scarlet Street. A comparison would show a sharp contrast between two anarchists who do not have a lot else in ...

Louis Malle's initial contribution to the collection of films, growing by leaps and bounds in the years after The Sorrow and the Pity, about Europe under Fascism: a studiously cool and unsentimental portrait of a French peasant who, rejected by the Resistance because of his youth, is diverted into collaboration ...
