Movie Diary 3/13/2012

Jeff, Who Lives at Home (Jay and Mark Duplass, 2012). Sweeter than Cyrus, with the same jittery emphasis on close-ups for most of the action. I still go with The Puffy Chair as the best of the Duplass brand. (full review 3/16)

The Forgiveness of Blood (Joshua Marston, 2011). The recently-revived, 15th-century Albanian code of blood feuds and retribution, seen by the director of Maria Full of Grace. Similar deal here: the primary goal is social comment, but the filmmaker’s instinct for dramatic beats is pretty good. (full review 3/16)

At What a Feeling!, we continue a week of 1980s exotic destinations with a review of Andrew V. McLaglen’s Sahara, an unforgettable Brooke Shields vehicle.
