Movie Diary 8/18/2011

The Debt (John Madden, 2010). An incident in East Berlin in the 1960s, which takes up much of the first hour, has repercussions in the 1990s, as two casts balance the details. Good actors helps the tricky structure. (full review 8/31)

Warrior (Gavin O’Connor, 2011). Wrestler and Fighter were taken as titles, so this is what’s left. Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton are brothers in the world of cage fighting, with many backstories trailing after them. (full review 8/9)

My other website, What a Feeling!, pauses for vintage reviews of a defining Eighties movie, Top Gun, and a non-defining title, Bad Medicine.
