    Brothers' Peepers: Gaël Morel's "Three Dancing Slaves"

    Andre Techiné's "Wild Reeds," still as urgently humane now as when it was released in 1995, has bestowed quite a legacy upon the new generation of French filmmaking. That film's psychosexual and political tangles have slowly but surely created tendrils that have reached all the way through an entire decade's worth of youth cinema. If Techiné's tender evocation of adolescent confusion and the growing social and moral awareness of a group of young friends in the early Sixties during the ongoing French-Algerian conflict had any sort of direct effect on the national cinema, it has been in its ability to pass on its spirit of rebelli...

Producing deft, relevant social satire is tricky enough without leaden direction weighing it down, especially when that satire is aimed at the frothy and fundamentally content-free microcosm of Los Angeles teen privilege. Films such as "Clueless" and "Election" (to which "Pretty Persuasion" owes its well-intentioned roots, even if it fails to flower) succeed on repeat viewings for precisely the same reasons "Pretty Persuasion" fails on its first an...

    Deep Breath: Phil Morrison's "Junebug"

    Having moved away from my small New England suburb to New York City many years ago, I have noticed, with each returning visit, my perspective on my childhood home further evolving into something mysterious and ineluctably specific. It's not just a matter of aging or nostalgia; there's a sense of dee...
