LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT (dir: Sidney Lumet, Not Rated) - Michelle says, "Heres a sweet little number for the holidays. Sidney Lumets stagey adaptation of one of ONeils final, autobiographical pieces (one that he never intended to be produced) changes little from the original play about his dysfunctional nuclear family of Irish alcoholics led by a miserly, washout actor and a morphine-addicted mom. On the day that mother Mary reverts completely into drug addiction, youngest son Edmund (a proxy for the author) is diagnosed with tuberculosis. The wacky result mixes Shakespeare with lots of drunken finger-pointing while mom moons about, disappearing regularly to shoot more of her sweet smack. Funny stuff!"
THE TRIAL (dir: Orson Welles, Not Rated) - Michelle says, "Anthony Perkins is perfect as the gangly, shifty man tangled within a bureaucratic legal system that arrests him without ever telling him what hes accused of. In a dreamlike procession of scenes played out against a series of sets that seem to open one onto another, Joseph K. stumbles from woman to woman who all seem interested in helping him or at least seducing him for some unknown purpose. Welless adaptation does justice to Kafkas bizarre aesthetic of chance encounters between intense, self-absorbed characters who develop instant intimacies one moment, and dispense with one another the next. Still, its never clear what single point is being made about justice and sexuality, which is probably what most makes this enigmatic movie worth watching."
AN AUTUMN AFTERNOON (dir: Yasujiro Ozu, Not Rated) - Michelle says, "Ozus final film celebrates alcoholic widowers and the sanctity of the Japanese family in a high color, 1960s world. Chishu Ryu, Ozus favorite actor, plays a father who knows he should marry off his grown daughter but wants to keep her around to feed him and iron his clothes. Alternately funny and melancholy, this examination of the sexual politics of an outdated patriarchal society will make you want to drink whiskey. Lots of it."  
L'ECLISSE (dir: Michelangelo Antonioni, Not Rated) - Bart says, "The third film in Antonioni's thematically-linked 'Incommunicability' trilogy, following L'AVVENTURA and LA NOTTE, is the most mysterious of them all. Lacking any kind of traditional dramatic conflict, its most exciting moments take place on the Roman stock exchange floor. Monica Vitti is as luminous as ever as the potential lover of Alain Delon, but lacking any genuine human emotions, neither one can seem to find the wherewithal to make the affair happen. You won't understand what it all means, but you'll be compelled enough to revisit this film."
