Remember My Name

Remember My Name ★★★½

Grimy and uneasy as only a 1970s movie can be. Geraldine Chaplin gives one of the best "unhinged ex" performances on film—just off enough that she makes everyone uncomfortable, yet so disarmingly vulnerable in her erratic behavior that people underestimate the emotional and physical damage she can wreak. Alan Rudolph and DP Tak Fujimoto strike a mesmerizing balance between careful, astute compositions and a sense of naturalistic looseness. Unfortunately, the ending is more anticlimatic than haunting.
