In the Mouth of Madness

Info: Hired to help locate a missing author, an insurance investigator discovers to his terror that the nightmarish events depicted in the writer’s best-selling horror novels are coming true. Wishing to be both a horror film and a parody of the genre, John Carpenter’s In the Mouth of Madness combines supernatural thrills with winking references. For instance, the vanished author, Sutter Cane (J├╝rgen Prochnow), is modeled on writers like Stephen King and Howard Phillips Lovecraft, from his great popularity to his obsession with small-town New England. Indeed, it is to one such hamlet that investigator John Trent (Sam Neill) and Cane’s female editor (Julie Carmen) travel, discovering a town filled with terrifying scenes right out of Cane’s books, from random axe murders to far worse. Have Cane’s fans gone psychotic and begun imitating his writings, or are Cane’s stories of an otherworldly evil invading the earth actually true?

Buffalo ’66

fvbu1buffalo-66-postersInfo: Already drunk on the notion of self-indulgence, actor Vincent Gallo’s debut as a writer and director will likely prove a love-it-or-hate-it affair for most viewers, with the hates outnumbering the loves. Dominating the screen in a flurry of aggressive method acting, Gallo makes no attempt to make his hateful loser of a protagonist the least bit sympathetic, a choice far easier to admire than to endure. In a film about redemption, it might not be asking too much for viewers to have a stake in the process. Visually, Gallo presents an abundance of ideas, most transparently copped from John Cassavetes and the French New Wave. The problem isn’t a reliance on past masters — what directors of the past 40 years haven’t borrowed from Cassavetes and the New Wave? — but an inability to synthesize the ideas into a cohesive whole. Strange asides and odd visual flourishes seem to take place solely because they can without any regard for the overall piece. Every flash of talent the film displays tends to get undermined by Gallo’s lack of discipline, his work occasionally resembling a student film that happens to feature some name actors. All of these hold up their end admirably: Christina Ricci in particular delivers a performance that almost makes it possible to overlook the fact that her character is a transparent fantasy figure. Those who tap into the enthusiasm that clearly drives Gallo might be able to overlook such flaws, but for most, Buffalo ’66 will likely prove an off-putting exercise in showy tedium.

Living in Oblivion

Info: Following up his debut, Johnny Suede, director Tom DiCillo presented this filmmaking comedy that allegedly draws much from DiCillo’s experiences on the set of the 1991 Brad Pitt vehicle. Steve Buscemi stars as Nick Reve, the long-suffering director of a no-budget independent film. If he’s not dealing with his heartbroken director of photography Wolf (Dermot Mulroney), Reve is trying to keep his leading lady Nicole (DiCillo mainstay Catherine Keener) happy or ignore the pseudo-auteur suggestions of Pitt-inspired name-actor Chad Palomino (James LeGros). All the while, the audience can’t ever be sure if the scene they’re watching is a dream or reality.

Delicatessen

Info: A post-apocalyptic future becomes the setting for pitch black humor in this visually intricate French comedy called Delicatessen. The action takes place within a single apartment complex, which is owned by the same man that operates the downstairs butcher shop. It’s a particularly popular place to live, thanks to the butcher’s uncanny ability to find excellent cuts of meat despite the horrible living conditions outside. The newest building superintendent, a former circus clown, thinks he has found an ideal living situation. All that changes, however, when he discovers the true source of the butcher’s meat, and that he may be the next main course. This dark tale is played out in a brilliantly designed, glorious surreal alternate world reminiscent of the works of director Terry Gilliam, who co-presented the film’s American release. Like Gilliam, co-directors Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro hail from an animation background, and have a fondness for extravagant visuals, absurdist plot twists, and a sense of humor that combines sharp satire with broad slapstick and gross-out imagery. This mixture may displease the weak of stomach, but those attuned to the film’s sensibility will be delighted by the obvious technical virtuosity and wicked sense of humor.

Info: A dark, bitter commentary on modern American life cloaked in the form of a surrealist western, Jim Jarmusch’s Dead Man wich was released in 1995 stars Johnny Depp as William Blake, a newly-orphaned accountant who leaves his home in Cleveland to accept a job in the frontier town of Machine. Upon his arrival, Blake is told by the factory owner Dickinson that the job has already been filled. Dejectedly, he enters a nearby tavern, ultimately spending the night with a former prostitute. A violent altercation with the woman’s lover, also Dickinson’s son, leaves Blake a murderer as well as mortally wounded, a bullet lodged dangerously close to his heart. He flees into the wilderness, where a Native American named Nobody mistakes Blake for the English poet William Blake and determines that he will be Blake’s guide in his protracted passage into the spirit world.
