Movie Diary 5/20/2013

The Hangover III (Todd Phillips, 2013). This is the third one of these. (full review 5/24)

Blade Runner (Ridley Scott, 1982). I am slowly liking the movie a little more each time I see it. Still not at the masterpiece point for me.

A Lady Takes a Chance (William A. Seiter, 1943). For at least its first half, this is a really weird, crazy picture: Jean Arthur takes off on a bus tour of the West, finds rodeo cowpoke John Wayne, rolls around in the hay (literally, not figuratively) with him. The movie is grounded in absolutely nothing, but the performers are fun.

Viola (Matías Piñeiro, 2012). Just an hour long, mostly long takes, no story, and repeated rehearsals for Twelfth Night. I like it.

The Terminator (James Cameron, 1984). Seeing it again after a long, long time, one is reminded of just how much a B-movie this was. And still is.

The East (Zal Batmangij, 2013). An agent (Brit Marling) goes undercover to expose an environmental terrorist group, in a taut little exercise that gets a lot of things right. (Shows in SIFF.)
