Ragtime Review


Good
The late 1970s and early 1980s were heavy times for cinema. This was the era of the majestic miniseries: Roots, Rich Man Poor Man, The Thorn Birds, Shogun. Why, if your film couldn't stretch over at least four hours, it probably wasn't worth telling.

The miniseries mentality reached into the theatrical world as well. And so Milos Forman ended up with Ragtime, a sprawling book about American life in the early 1900s, filled with stories of racism, sudden upward mobility, abandonment, psychosis, and of course that good old ragtime music. The result is a film that sprawls well over two hours yet can't ever decide where the best story lies. Is it a tale of a murderous husband who avenges the harsh treatment of his former-chorus girl wife? The story of an abandoned black baby who winds up in the arms of a wealthy white family? No, Ragtime eventually focuses on a black piano player (Howard E. Rollins Jr.) who rises through the ranks of the ragtime scene, only to find bitter racism and resentment waiting for him on the other side. He ultimately winds up holed up in a library with one of the characters from another story in the film. Some of this is based on real events, most is not.

Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life Is Calling Review


Good
Richard Pryor, phone home. In this terribly autobiographical tale, we see Pryor as ghost/angel, looking back on his life -- working his way through the seedy clubs, making it big on Ed Sullivan, and self-destructing on booze and drugs. Of course, the real Pryor never set himself on fire... In any case, Jo Jo Dancer is certainly a heartfelt and cautionary tale a la Gia, but it lacks much in the way of plot development, action, and a reason to care about Jo Jo one way or the other. I fell asleep more than once.
