film.avclub.comFestival favorite Araby is as unfulfilling as the life on the road it chroniclesAs its protagonist, the ex-con Cristiano (Aristides de Sousa), roves from job to job in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, João Dumans and Affonso Uchoa’s Araby lingers at the threshold of one story after another. The point (both social and existential) is that the thresholds remain uncrossed, and that his life is one of in-betweens and narrative counter-intuition. The misleading opening section of the film—a test of the audience’s patience for Robert Bresson-influenced affectations—focuses on André (Murilo Caliari), a teenager somewhere between adolescence and grown-up responsibility, who lives with his sick and often bed-ridden younger brother near a steel mill. After an unexplained accident leaves a worker in a coma, André is sent to collect the man’s belongings. This man, as we learn, is Cristiano. The larger part of Araby (drolly indicated by a title card that comes more than 20 minutes into the movie) represents the text of his spiral-bound notebook, scribbled for some kind of creative writing class.
film.avclub.comBoundaries drags Vera Farmiga on a road trip through quirky-indie-family clichésToward the beginning of Boundaries, beleaguered single mom Laura (Vera Farmiga), her shiftless father Jack (Christopher Plummer), and her oddball teenage son, Henry (Lewis MacDougall), set off on a multi-state West Coast road trip in Jack’s old Rolls-Royce. An hour into the journey, they carelessly run out of gas. This cul-de-sac of a plot development provides such an obvious metaphor for the tedium of the movie at large that pointing it out—picking on this scrappy, heartfelt paean to struggling underdogs—feels almost unfair. Then again, Boundaries rarely shies away from obvious metaphors; it’s a movie that sends its characters on a journey with a destination that turns out to be, get this, inconsequential, featuring a heroine who can’t stop adopting needy stray dogs and cats despite having her own problems to deal with. Quirky indie dramedies that live by hackneyed metaphors can die by them, too.
film.avclub.comFallen Kingdom isn't any smarter than Jurassic World, but it's better-crafted funDuring a break from the awe, suspense, and action of Jurassic Park, Steven Spielberg’s camera pans across shelves of theme park merchandise with a combination of sardonic amusement and score-twinkling love. (This was Spielberg, after all.) Though the shot was much-mentioned 25 years ago when the movie was first released, it’s nonetheless striking today how loaded that moment feels now that Jurassic Park is an ongoing series, not a one-off event. Whether always intentionally or not, that series is now about both the foolishness and undeniable allure of spending untold millions (“spare no expense!”) to not leave well enough alone.
