Movie Diary 1/21/2013

Bed and Sofa (Abram Room, 1927). A very forward-looking effort about a romantic triangle among the workers; lots of remarkable shots of Moscow building itself, even if most of the movie takes place inside a shared apartment.

Date Night (Shawn Levy, 2010). Has its moments, Mark Wahlberg’s presence being one of the best. Almost feel bad for Raymond Burr after this, though.

Wagner and Me (Patrick McGrady, 2010). Stephen Fry is onscreen talking about his lifelong adoration of the music of Richard Wagner, and his struggles with reconciling that love to Wagner’s tainted legacy. Fry doesn’t go deep, but he engages with an important subject – the extent to which what we know about an artist affects our appreciation of him. (full review 1/25)

At What a Feeling!, we go full Eighties with a review of Stuart Rosenberg’s Pope of Greenwich Village.
