Mrs Parker and the Vicious Circle *** (1994, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Campbell Scott, Matthew Broderick, Peter Gallagher, Jennifer Beals, Andrew McCarthy, Wallace Shawn) – Classic Movie Review 11,570

Jennifer Jason Leigh is very effective as the mannered acid wit and writer Dorothy Parker in Alan Rudolph’s posh and good-looking but gossipy and suitably bitchy 1994 biopic Mrs Parker and the Vicious Circle, from a screenplay written by Rudolph and Randy Sue Coburn. Campbell Scott and Matthew Broderick are...

Endangered Species * (1982, Robert Urich, JoBeth Williams, Paul Dooley, Hoyt Axton, Peter Coyote) – Classic Movie Review 11,567

A Colorado town’s cattle are being bumped off after operations done on them, and burnt-out former New York cop (Robert Urich) Reuben Castle and sheriff Harriet Perdue (JoBeth Williams) dig the dirt, in director Alan Rudolph’s 1982 science fiction film Endangered Species, a pretentious, truly weird, off-putting suspense thriller with a message.

The Moderns *** (1988, Keith Carradine, Linda Fiorentino, John Lone, Geneviève Bujold, Geraldine Chaplin) – Classic Movie Review 11,556

Director Alan Rudolph’s 1988 film The Moderns is an offbeat, civilised, romantic movie about Americans in 1920s Paris, with a miscast Keith Carradine out of his depth as art faker Nick Hart, an ex-patriate American artist living in Paris, but with John Lone and Linda Fiorentino providing ample compensation as an industrialist couple, Bertram and Rachel Stone.

The 1980 American musical comedy film Roadie is an offbeat look at the rock industry from director Alan Rudolph starring heavyweight rocker Meat Loaf as beer-drinking Travis W Redfish, a truck driver who becomes a roadie for a travelling rock and roll show, who teams up with groupie Lola Bouillabaisse (Kaki Hunter) in a search for Alice Cooper.

The Criterion Channel’s September 2021 Lineup Includes Jia Zhangke, Margaret, Center Stage & More

Next month’s Criterion Channel selection is here, and as 2021 winds down further cements their status as our single greatest streaming service. Off the top I took note of their eight-film Jia Zhangke retro (Xiao Wu, Platform, Unknown Pleasures, The World, Still Life, 24 City, A Touch of Sin, and Mountains May Depart, plus Walter Salles’ Jia Zhangke, A Guy from Fenyang) as well as the streaming premieres of Center Stage and Malni. And, yes, Margaret has been on HBO Max for a while, but we can hope Criterion Channel’s addition—as part of the 63(!)-film “New York Stories”—opens doors to a more deserving home-video treatment.
