Movie Diary 8/8/2012

The Words (Brian Klugman, Lee Sternthal, 2012). A different sort of idea for an indie, in a film about a story being told of a story being told, all spun off from an anecdote that actually happened to Hemingway as a young writer (although the movie does not cite that source). Maybe it needs a Jacques Rivette or a Raul Ruiz to pull out all the possibilities here, but it’s still a different sort of indie. (full review 9/7)

The Odd Life of Timothy Green (Peter Hedges, 2012). A kid grows in the backyard garden for Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton. Also a different sort of idea, this time for Disney. (full review 8/17)

At What a Feeling!, it’s holiday road time with a 1983 review of Harold Ramis’s National Lampoon’s Vacation.
