The impact of the Vietnam War on American lives is the theme of Michael Cimino's 1978 epic. Cimino and his writers do it justice, centering on several young men from a bleak Pennsylvania steel town. What lingers in the memory about this remarkable film--which introduced Meryl Streep--is not so much the brutal experiences the friends undergo in Vietnam as how ethnic working-class people struggle to square away their love for their country with its role in Southeast Asia.

The perilous times afoot render William Shakespeare's "Richard III" more urgently topical than ever. Appropriately, adapter-director Chris Kelley's Theatre of NOTE production favors contemporary insight, embodied by a remarkable ensemble spearheaded by Jacqueline Wright's award-worthy title villain. Kelley refreshes the Bard's study of corrupted ambition by examining isolation's effect on the pathological persona.

In a movie with a title such as "The Conversation," you'd expect sound to play an important role. But Francis Ford Coppola does something extraordinary: Sound becomes as complex and revealing as the movie's central character. Harry Caul (Gene Hackman in one of his smartest, coolest performances) is a surveillance pro hired to spy on a seemingly innocent young couple (Cindy Williams and Frederic Forrest).

Meryl and Glenn, together again at last! This year's Oscar race marks the first time in more than two decades that the towering talents of cinema - Streep and Close - have been pitted against one another (Streep for “The Iron Lady,” Close for “Albert Nobbs”) . In the last clash of the contemporary titans, 1989's awards marathon, it was Streep in “A Cry in the Dark” and Close in “Dangerous Liaisons.” (Both went home empty-handed, thanks to “The Accused's” Jodie Foster.)
