Movie Diary 12/1/2011

Shame (Steve McQueen, 2011). The director and actor, Michael Fassbender, of Hunger, a film that makes this one look conventional by comparison, if stirringly acted. (full review 12/9)

You’re Telling Me! (Erle C. Kenton, 1934). W.C. Fields, running alongside a bulletproof tire and stepping into a pie; the stuff of immortality.

At What a Feeling!, Ken Russell’s Crimes of Passion is reviewed in 1984, in a combined piece with another romantic perversity, Paul Cox’s Man of Flowers.
