Movie Diary 7/30/2013

2 Guns (Baltasar Kormákur, 2013). Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg as a couple of bros working a Mexican drug angle. Two Peckinpah references in the first five minutes hint at something, but this is closer to Convoy than Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid. The filmmaker did the ludicrous and fun Contraband, which this does not match. (full review 8/2)

Dial M for Murder (Alfred Hitchcock, 1954). In 3D! As long as this is playing in 3D somewhere every 30 years, I resolve to see it. Actually the movie is more interesting than Hitchcock gave it credit for, and there’s more play with the 3D process than he would later own up to.

The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear (Tinatin Gurchiani, 2012). Worthy minimalist effort from Georgia, confirming that just about everybody is already a movie actor. (full review 8/2)

Blackfish (Gabriela Cowperthwaite, 2013). Devastating, and maybe a little queasy at times. Free the whales already. (full review 8/2)
