Movie Diary 1/25/2012

The Big Heat (Fritz Lang, 1953). Interesting to watch this movie from a slightly different angle and appreciate how money enters into almost every conversation, and certainly every significant point of debate. “Depends where the money came from.” That says it.

At What a Feeling!, I tried to find my review of Landscape in the Mist, the 1988 masterpiece by Theo Angelopoulos, who died earlier this week after being struck by a motorcyclist. Couldn’t find it. Will keep looking. In the meantime, the vintage reviews include the lighter fare of the ten-director omnibus picture Aria,  and George Roy Hill’s Funny Farm.
