Movie Diary 10/10/2013

Invaders from Mars (William Cameron Menzies, 1953). Good to see this movie with a responsive audience – the  atmosphere is still a fever-dream (even with the risible and endless military stock footage) and its design conjures up a string of uncanny sensations. Shame about the mu-tants, but nothing’s perfect.
