Wake in Fright (Ted Kotcheff, 1971). Definitely a robust excursion into the genre of machismo critique, if perhaps not quite the retro-revelation some had rumored.
Alex Cross (Rob Cohen, 2012). I suspect the preview audience was laughing at this because they’d been cued to receive the Tyler Perry Goes Crime Film as a joke; I hope they realize this movie is no worse than the incoherent crap they usually sit and watch soberly. But starting the screening 45 minutes late probably doesn’t help anybody’s mood. Oh digital age, with your push-button ease. (full review 10/19)
At What a Feeling!, we cast back to Ted Kotcheff’s Uncommon Valor, in which the globe-trotting Canadian director helps kick off the we-win-Vietnam-this-time craze in Eighties movies.
