Rolling Thunder

You'll be as hooked as he.


Thriller

Rod Lott
You can keep Coming Home, Forrest Gump and Born on the Fourth of July, multiple Oscar winners all. For my money, the seminal disabled-Vietnam-vet film is 1977's Rolling Thunder.

The Canyons

True to its title, the film is a void.


Drama

Rod Lott
Paul Schrader’s The Canyons opens and closes with a montage of abandoned movie theaters. For this film in particular, that choice strikes one as symbolic in several ways: not only as a comment on the state of the industry, but on the state of The Canyons itself. You’re unlikely to find many 2013 films this empty.

Cat People

Here, kitty, kitty, kitty …


Horror

Rod Lott

Dripping with atmosphere as thick as gumbo, the New Orleans-centered Cat People of 1982 is the right way to remake a genuinely great film: Hold on to that central concept; dispense with most everything else.
