Movie Diary 6/9/2011

Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (Apichatpong Weerasethakul, 2010). A trail of smoke, a ghost at the dinner table, the choke of jungle at night – hard not to fall for at least many things about this film. And man, it was good to see it in 35 mm., that suddenly rare motion picture delivery system – thank you Northwest Film Forum. (full review 6/17)

Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest (Michael Rapaport, 2011). If you’re going to make this movie, this is the way to make this movie. (full review 7/?)

At my other website What a Feeling!, we cast back to 1980s-world for a review of Heartburn, which should have been a better movie.
