Movie Diary 5/24/2012

The Snows of Kilimanjaro (Robert Guediguian, 2011). This veteran filmmaker, a spiritual cousin to Ken Loach and John Sayles, comes through with another tale of Marseilles folk who maintain a stubborn core of human decency, despite the tough breaks that come to them at a certain age. (Showing at SIFF)

Lost Years (Kenda Gee, Tom Radford, 2011). A documentary on the subject of Chinese immigration to Canada (and other places) and the unresolved unfairness of that process. (Showing at SIFF)

At What a Feeling!, an Eighties review of Martin Ritt’s Nuts, a curious vehicle for Barbra Streisand that failed as Oscar bait.
