Movie Diary 2/2/2012

Platform (Jia Zhang-ke, 2000). Hard, but good. When you finally hear the lyrics of a pop song that keeps getting played, you understand what the title means, and how apt it is (the platform’s at a train station, where the train never shows up). It all seems very emotional, even when it’s difficult to decipher.

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (Lasse Hallström, 2012). Hallström: a professional, just when you need one. It’s got Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt in it, so you have stuff to look at. (full review 3/9)

At What a Feeling!, the Eighties beat goes on with reviews of John Carpenter’s Starman and Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo III, both of which have scenes in a carnival, or possibly not.
