Movie Diary 6/7/2012

Dragon (Peter Ho-sun Chan, 2012). A Donnie Yen martial-arts picture, but very dark and heavy, with a few genuinely startling moments and more than a few reverberations from A History of Violence. (showing at SIFF)

The week of Eighties science fiction continues at What a Feeling!, today featuring a vintage review of Wolfgang Petersen’s Enemy Mine, a title that (rumor has it) caused studio heads to suggest that a scene involving a mining operation be included in the story, lest audiences be confused.
