Movie Diary 2/11/2014

Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story (Todd Haynes, 1988). Haynes’ 43-minute doll biopic, still legally verboten. And still Haynes’ second-best movie after Safe.

About Last Night (Steve Pink, 2014). The rise of Kevin Hart will be deflected not one bit by this R-rated romantic comedy. Hart and Regina Hall provide the yuks, Michael Ealy and Joy Bryant the serious-relationship stuff. One point of interest: Are there other remakes in which the characters watch the original version of the movie they’re in? Because they do that here. (full review 2/14)
