Movie Diary 12/2/2008

Punisher: War Zone (Lexi Alexander, 2008), and Cadillac Records (Darnell Martin, 2008). Interesting day when a skull-cleaving action picture and a blues-music biopic arrive, both directed by women but without much fuss made about it. And there’s a glut of strong male performers in both pictures, especially Cadillac, which offers up roles to Eamonn Walker and Columbus Short that will not be denied even in the presence of typically great stuff from Jeffrey Wright and Mos Def.
