Movie Diary 12/19/2012

Jack Reacher (Christopher McQuarrie, 2012). Perhaps the night after seeing Les Miserables one might be in the mood for a palate-cleanser, as it were – you know, something that doesn’t really need to be a great movie, could simply be a very good, clean, well-executed genre picture, immensely satisfying on its own terms, that kind of thing?

Barbara (Christian Petzold, 2012). East Germany, 1980, with Nina Hoss as a doctor who has something going on – but the movie will be as discreet as one would have to be in East Germany, 1980. Hoss’s and Petzold’s subdued style pays off as the story reaches its quiet end. (full review 12/21)
