  • The Annihilation of Fish

    1999. USA. Directed by Charles Burnett. With James Earl Jones, Lynn Redgrave, Margot Kidder. This bizarre comedy pairs the legendary Jones with Lynn Redgrave (the late younger sister of Vanessa Redgrave, with whom Jones is currently appearing on Broadway). The film includes a trademark Burnett wedding scene—this time with an invisible groom—and Kidder seems to channel Beulah Bondi’s performance from Jean Renoir’s The Southerner, one of Burnett’s favorite films. 108 min.
