Movie Diary 8/22/2013

You’re Next (Adam Wingard, 2011). Berserk and madcap and very, very knowing. It makes you realize how few movies since the second Evil Dead have actually gotten the mix right – but I suppose it’s not as simple as it looks.

Closed Circuit (John Crowley, 2013). From the director of Boy A, which a few people got dithery about a while back. Decent start, paranoia always welcome, but if you’re going to go down this road, you really need to cross the Ts and etc. in the third act. Rebecca Hall, Jim Broadbent, Julia Stiles in top form, and still not enough to justify it. (full review 8/30)
