Movie Diary 7/12/2010

Inception (Christopher Nolan, 2010). I wasn’t always sure what the hell I was watching during this movie, but holy cats, I certainly watched this movie. (full review 7/16)

Restrepo (Sebastian Junger, Tim Hetherington, 2010). Ground zero in Afghanistan, as the myth of Sisyphus gets another roll-out. Bluntly shot, shrewdly selected. (full review 7/16)

The One That Got Away (Roy Ward Baker, 1957). True story of the only German soldier to successfully escape from British custody during WWII, with Hardy Kruger as that guy. Turns out he was a little like the Barefoot Bandit of the war – you don’t want to root for him, but the dude is just so inventive….
