(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 Set in Kobe at the beginning of 1995, the film introduces Masako (Naomi Fujiyama), a withdrawn, middle-aged woman living above her mother's dry cleaning shop.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.

2-Disc Special Edition with Slipcase.

Fall of the Roman Empire, The
(1964 Anthony Mann)

svensk titel: Romarrikets Fall

The success of Anthony Mann's wide-screen epic "El Cid" (1961) led to this even grander undertaking, one of Hollywood's periodic infatuations with the decadence of Imperial Rome.

After murdering his father, Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the emperor Commodus drifts into a life of wanton depravity as the Gothic hordes gather at the Empire's borders.

"The Fall of the Roman Empire" is a Hollywood spectacular in the grand tradition, but Mann manages to elicit some terrific performances amongst the mob scenes. According to the trailer, the film contains "Not just 3 or 4, but ALL of the known emotions!"

Falling Down
(1993 Joel Schumacher)

A laid-off defense worker, kept from seeing his child on her birthday by a restraining order, looks at the landscape of moral decay in Los Angeles on one hot, congested day and, after being mugged, snaps. What follows is his bitter and pathetic mission of justice, vengeance and vindication that reads uncomfortably like too many news stories. Michael Douglas is identified only by his character's license plate, D-FENS, in this attack on social ills, a film originally seen as the displacement of power felt by many white American males.

(1940 Hamilton Luske)

Many consider Walt Disney's best achievement in the field of animation to be this series of animated fantasies set to classical music, conducted by Leopold Stokowski. Panned when it opened, it's now a classic. Segments include: Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor;" Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker Suite," filled with dancing mushrooms and fairies; Dukas's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," featuring Mickey Mouse in his most famous role; Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring," displaying the natural history of the Earth; Beethoven's "Pastoral Symphony;" Ponchielli's "Dance of the Hours," featuring dancing hippos and alligators; and the concluding medley of Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain" and Schubert's "Ave Maria."

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.

Four Feathers

In 1884, Harry Feversham is a young officer-in-training in the British Army who is soon to graduate and is expected to be shipped of to the Sudan, where the King's military are battling Muslim insurgents who are attempting to overturn English colonial rule. Feversham, however, has developed a serious case of cold feet, and on the eve of his departure, he resigns his commission. Feversham's best friend and fellow officer Jack Durrance in response presents him with a white feather (a symbol of cowardice), and two of his classmates follow suit. Ethne Eustace, Feversham's fiancée, presents him with a fourth white feather shortly before breaking off their engagement. Sufficiently humbled, Feversham attempts to win back his honor and the respect of his family and friends by secretly becoming an undercover operative in the Sudan.

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.
