Down River, a rewarding indie drama about four artistic women getting by in Vancouver, B.C.

The One I Love, a contemporary romance with a Twilight Zone-inspired swerve. Starring Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss.

Portlanders might also check out the rooftop screening of The King of Comedy next Thursday. The De Niro/Scorsese collaboration is black comedy perfection. On the other hand, look out for The Color Wheel. It's grating.


Call Her Savage, an entertaining pre-Code melodrama with "It Girl" Clara Bow.

The Children's Hour, a poignant drama with a message with Audrey Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine, and James Garner.

The Darjeeling Limited, take a look at my notes from my recent introduction to the movie at the NW Film Center, who are in the final weeks of their Wes Anderson festival.

Donkey Skin, a fairy tale from Jacques Demy.

Rosemary's Baby (2014), a pointless television remake with Zoe Saldana in the title role.

The Secret Hearta fair melodrama from 1946 with Claudette Colbert competing with stepdaughter June Allyson for the affections of old man Walter Pidgeon.

The Unforgiven, Audrey Hepburn's only western is also John Huston's answer to The Searchers. 

The Wind Will Carry Us, an intriguing meditation on life and death from Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami.

On the set of The Children's Hour.

Current Soundtrack: Gerard Way, "No Shows" & "Action Cat"
