(2000 Junji Sakamoto)

Junji Sakamoto spins this tale of a socially inept yet indomitable woman searching for freedom and self-respect. Set in Kobe at the beginning of 1995, the film introduces Masako (Naomi Fujiyama), a withdrawn, middle-aged woman living above her mother's dry cleaning shop. She rarely leaves the house and is often tormented by her pretty younger sister. After their mother suddenly dies, the sisters' sibling rivalry takes a rather nasty turn. Immediately after the funeral, Masako strangles her sister in an explosion of rage and humiliation. Just as she stumbles into life on the run, the Kobe earthquake strikes. Terrified that the disaster is some divine retribution for her crime, she flees willy-nilly to Osaka.

Fantasia 2000
(1999 James Algar, Gaetan Brizzi, Paul Brizzi, Hendel Butoy, Francis Glebas, Eric Goldberg, Pixote Hunt)

This updated Fantasia stands as a worthy successor to the original Walt Disney classic, with a broad range of animation styles that employ both traditional and computer-based techniques. Each segment is magical and fun in its own right--most notably, the scene of majestically floating whales set to Respighi's "Pines of Rome" and Donald Duck doing his best in the Noah's Ark segment. Best of all, Fantasia 2000 allows the Disney animators to stretch their muscles and experiment with fresh new material.

Fast Food Nation
(2007 Richard Linklater)

FAST FOOD NATION exposes the evils of corporate fast-food production.

The film presents a wide tapestry of characters whose lives are all affected in one way or another by Mickey's, a fictionalized fast-food chain. At the top of the chain sits Don Henderson (Greg Kinnear), a Mickey's marketing VP who is shocked to discover that a high fecal count has shown up in his company's burgers. Sylvia (Catalina Sandino Moreno), Raul (Wilmer Vilderrama), and Coco (Ana Claudia Talancon) are illegal Mexican immigrants who have found employment in the grotesque plant that produces those same burgers, working under the evil watch of supervisor Mike (Bobby Cannavale). Ashley (Amber Johnson) works the counter at a local Mickey's, but when she befriends a group of politically charged college students (Lou Taylor Pucci, Avril Lavigne), she thinks twice about her job.

Linklater takes a leisurely approach to his otherwise in-your-face material, allowing certain stories to play themselves out before moving on to another. The result is a film that sneaks up on viewers. However, by the time it reaches its powerful conclusion, the filmmakers' point becomes painfully clear.

Fellini: Collectors Box 1

Perhaps his most famous film, La Dolce Vita slices into the decadent amoral core of Roman society with Fellini's trademark attention to detail and spectacular photography. Marcello Mastroianni plays a gossip columnist (the term 'paparazzi' derives from the in a film) who aspires to be a more serious writer but knows he never will be, because like society, he is fascinated by the decadent hedonist pursuits which are seemingly everywhere. The Vatican was appalled by the film, but the public adored it, relishing the images Fellini fed them, most notably the now infamous scene of Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg frolicking in the Trevi Fountain.

SKURKEN (1955)

Augusto (Broderick Crawford), Picasso (Richard Basehart) and Roberto (Franco Fabrizi) are small-time conmen who play elaborate tricks on the poor and the credulous. But their cruelty and lack of morality is tested when Augusto is reunited with his estranged daughter and Picasso is faced with his loving wife's disapproving patience. Featuring excellent performances from Crawford, Basehart and Giulietta Masina against a colourful backdrop of sharply observed characters this sincere social drama is by turns comic, bitter and tragic.

GÄNGET (1953)

The film is essentially a rites of passage story involving a group of friends growing up together in a small provincial town. This seemingly aimless fraternity is led by Fausto in their daily routine of hanging around in bars and wasting their days whilst dreaming of breaking free of their parochial chains to taste the adventure the world has to offer. Events force the womanising Fausto to choose between responsibility and freedom which in turn prompts the other members of the group to look at their own futures in a new light.

Fox and the Hound
(1981 Richard Rich)

svensk titel: Micke och Molle

Produced during an acknowledged "slump" period after Walt Disney's death, The Fox and the Hound is a warm and amusing, if slightly dull, entry in the Disney animated canon.

The story is conventional and generally predictable; in other hands, it would have been a fine framework for a cartoon, but here the characters are undistinguished and the dialogue is exactly what is expected, no more. Pacing is also problematic, with several portions of the film sluggish. These are balanced, however, by some very good moments: the sorrowful segment when Tod is taken to the game reserve, the climactic bear fight, and the final bittersweet parting.

The animation in the bear sequence in particular is good, as is that in the extraneous (and unfortunately not very funny) running gag involving a caterpillar. Buddy Baker's score is exceptionally weak, but the invaluable Pearl Bailey still manages to make her numbers into rousers. Mickey Rooney and Kurt Russell also turn in fine vocal performances, as do Sandy Duncan and Jack Albertson in smaller roles. Two of the directors, Richard Rich and Ted Berman, would next direct The Black Cauldron, a less successful but more ambitious project.

Set in 1948 Montreal in a Jewish ghetto, a young Dreyfuss gives an excellent performance as the title character who suffers through years of self-abuse in an effort to become something of substance. Constantly reinforcing the low self-image created by his peers, Kravitz entertains thoughts of riches and glamour. His failed entrepreneurial efforts lead him not to success as he hopes but alienate him from those who can help.

The book by Mordecai Richler was published in 1959 and caused a huge stir among the Jewish community who were angry at what they perceived to be negative depictions of Jewish people.
