Movie Diary 8/28/2012

Sleepwalk with Me (Mike Birbiglia, 2012). Along with its other attributes, the film brings back a certain post-Annie Hall vogue for the relationship comedy, which I never thought I’d feel nostalgic for, but which this movie make me feel at least  somewhat nostalgic for. (Birbiglia, who also plays the lead role based on his one-man show, even addresses the camera in his first-person narrative.) The movie is as modest as the comic’s own presence, and although it looks artless it does have a feel for second-rate clubs and motel rooms that seems authentic. (full review 8/31)

At What a Feeling!, the Eighties wayback machine lands on Francois Truffaut’s Confidentially Yours, a very mild (and unintended) end to a beautiful career.
