Movie Diary 12/8/2011

Carnage (Roman Polanski, 2011). Four potent actors go at it hammer and tongs, and Polanski, while not quite coming up with another Cul-de-sac, never lets you forget that somebody’s at the helm. (full review 1/20)

Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles (John Foy, 2011). This is really a pretty amazing film. A group of self-appointed sleuths decide to find out who’s behind the enigmatic street tiles found in cities around the Western Hemisphere, and learn quite a bit in the course of their investigation. The Toynbee tiles really go to show you how much impact one crackpot can make. (full review 12/16)

At What a Feeling!, we press on with Eighties cinema and review of Woody Allen’s Another Woman and Nick Castle’s The Boy Who Could Fly.
