Movie Diary 3/29/2012

Whirlpool (Otto Preminger, 1949). At the middle of this movie is an interesting noir idea about wife Gene Tierney living falsely in a marriage to psychoanalyst Richard Conte because she has to maintain the perfect reputation; thanks to a pre-existing neurosis and the pressure, she cracks. But whew, what a crackpot story (José Ferrer as an astrologer-hypnotist) surrounding it.

At What a Feeling!, an equally crackpot project with an intriguing pedigree (director Nicolas Roeg and screenwriter Dennis Potter): Track 29, reviewed in 1988.
