Movie Diary 6/6/2012

The Day He Arrives (Hong Sang-soo, 2011). A nice example of the what-precisely-is-going-on-here genre, as a director on hiatus looks to visit an old friend in Seoul, and his day unfolds in a series of maybe parallel-universe scenarios, or possibly just daydreams of what is to come. Swell black-and-white, too. (full review 6/8)

At What a Feeling!, the week is top-heavy with large Eighties science-fiction epics, in anticipation of the arrival of Prometheus. Today’s entry: Peter Hyams’ 2010.
