Movie Diary 12/20/2011

The Grey (Joe Carnahan, 2011). Carnahan’s yakety-yak plus Liam Neeson’s authority plus survival in the snow plus an actor named Frank Grillo – plus wolves.

At What a Feeling!, the frost is in the air with an Eighties review of Arthur Penn’s Dead of Winter, a tour de force for Mary Steenburgen (and Roddy McDowall, of course).
