Movie Diary 7/19/2012

Blind Date (Joseph Losey, 1959). Dead woman in an apartment, suspect Hardy Kruger going ’round and ’round with cop Stanley Baker – a situation that, especially in the Kafkaesque opening reel, seems to anticipate Losey’s collaborations with Harold Pinter.

Arbitrage (Nicholas Jarecki, 2012). Richard Gere as a high-rolling, moneyed monster whose life crashes down around his ears. Give Gere credit for getting better with age. (full review 9/14)

For a Good Time, Call… (Jamie Travis, 2012). It must be observed, there are some foul-mouthed ladies all up in here. (full review 9/?)

At What a Feeling!, we establish that Jon Voight likes a good cry more than most, with a review of Table for Five.
