Movie Diary 1/18/2012

Albert Nobbs (Rodrigo Garcia, 2011). It might not entirely be a movie, but still a good amount to admire here, especially with a large cast bustling about – all of them very sharp operators. (full review 1/27)

The Lady in the Lake (Robert Montgomery, 1947). I have now watched this for the second and final time in my life. What sounds like it ought to be a useful approach, as a stylistic device – a Raymond Chandler whodunit seen literally through the eyes of Philip Marlowe, with subjective camera throughout – just does not work. Audrey Totter and Jayne Meadows are the main sources of life.

At What a Feeling!, the original release, severely-cut version of Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in America gets a 1984 review.
