    CHOOSE ME (Alan Rudolph, USA, 1984, 8) V

    The last shot is the film-maker’s last impression to you, and (I’d thus argue) should be what he wants you to have in your mind as you leave. There’s nothing especially virtuoso or movie-redefining about the last shot of CHOOSE ME — it’s a close-up of a couple in a bus, headed to Las Vegas for their wedding. But Rudolph holds on it as the woman’s face goes through three or four expressions and the man’s just one. That’s the movie.

    Before the last shot, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of CHOOSE ME, one of the oddest films I’ve seen in a while. If you just recite the film’s plot, it’d obviously be a boudoir farce of mistaken identities and shifting alignments within a small set of characters. But it’s played and directed more like a film noir, with Teddy Pendergrass filling the role Bernard Herrmann or Dmitri Tiomkin would’ve back in the day, and Eve Lounge looking like a movie’s idea of a bar while set in an obvious back lot “street.” The result is perversely “entertaining” in a beautiful but sordid way. There ARE scenes involving guns or punches and they’re just about the only ones I laughed at (CHOOSE ME is that perverse). It’s as if the characters and Rudolph don’t know this is a romcom. Or they were just making something too unique for boxes about people unsure of what boxes their lives fit into. Or maybe too sure.

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
