Movie Diary 12/4/2012

The Comedy (Rick Alverson, 2012). Funnyman Tim Heidecker puts on the Generation Y anomie, in a movie that knows what it’s doing but isn’t always very enjoyable to watch. (full review 12/8)

Red Chapel (Mads Brugger, 2009). The predecessor to the filmmaker’s The Ambassador. In this one, Brugger pretends to be a theater man on a cultural mission to North Korea, taking with him two Korean-Danish comedians (both of whom come across as remarkable people). It’s almost as weird and unsettling as The Ambassador, and there are amazing/disturbing views of the deranged regime.

At What a Feeling!, we begin a week of 1980s movies with a review of  Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives, which I bet is not a movie you expected.
