Movie Diary 5/23/2013

Fast & Furious 6 (Justin Lin, 2013). The title onscreen, unless I missed something, is Furious 6. That might sound like the worst perfume name ever, but the movie itself, while ridiculous, executes its stunts and car chases with quite a bit of energy. (full review 5/24)

They Live (John Carpenter, 1988). Classical filmmaking applied to pulp, in a way that looks more brilliant than ever. Also read Jonathan Lethem’s book about the movie, which is pretty good for an amateur; Lethem is right to call the sunglasses-revelation scene “desert island time.”
