Movie Diary 7/13/2010

Perrier’s Bounty (Ian Fitzgibbon, 2009). Irish gangsters, Brendan Gleeson, Cillian Murphy (some men should not grow beards), Jim Broadbent, Jodie Whittaker (from the Peter O’Toole Venus) – in short, much promise. But another In Bruges it ain’t. (full review 7/16)

Killing Kazstner (Gaylen Ross, 2008). I’m not sure if this is the only Holocaust documentary directed by a cast member of the original Dawn of the Dead, but it’s certainly the best. What a story: the tale of a man who is not only not honored in Israel despite being responsible for saving hundreds of Jewish lives, but who was actually assassinated for his perceived treachery. It’s complicated, but worth sifting through. (full review 7/16).
