A haunting, dream-like puzzle of obsession from writer/director Alan Rudolph and producer Robert Altman, Remember My Name follows an ex-con (an unsettling, absolutely mesmerizing Geraldine Chaplin) fresh out of prison who mysteriously turns life upside down for a construction worker (Anthony Perkins) and his wife (Perkin’s real-life wife Berry Berenson). Featuring memorable supporting performances from Moses Gunn, Jeff Goldblum, and Alfre Woodard, plus stellar cinematography across Los Angeles by Tak Fujimoto.

Play It As It Lays

Frank Perry adapts Joan Didion’s acclaimed debut novel Play It As It Lays, crafting a lyrical ode to an American angel of death and desire. Maria Wyeth’s built a successful acting career from humble small town root, but her life falls apart behind the scenes. Her abusive husband is also her director (Adam Roarke), she’s pregnant with an unwanted child pre-Roe V. Wade, and the 4-year-old daughter she does have is institutionalized. She can’t help but aimlessly drive L.A. freeways, bitch casually with depressed, gay best friend, B.Z. (Anthony Perkins), and lounge, lethargic and lilting, everywhere in between. A scathing scream into the bitter, dizzying emptiness of it all, this film is as beautiful as it is cruel.
