Movie Diary 2/19/2009

Alien Trespass (R.W. Goodwin, 2009). Pipe-smoking scientist, meteor, Southwest desert…all the familiar elements are here in this warp on Fifties alien-invasion pictures. But do check out The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. (full review 4/3)

Cherry Blossoms (Doris Dorrie, 2008). Any historical unease about the linkage of Germany and Japan is gradually worn down by Dorrie’s gentle touch, in an East-West thing that recalls her documentary, How to Cook Your Life. (full review 3/6)
