Movie Diary 5/13/2014

Scarface (Brian De Palma, 1983). First visit to this film in 30 years. I understand it’s been taken up in the culture at large. It looks much more clearly like an intentional comedy this time around, I will say. Except for the Giorgio Moroder music.

God’s Pocket (John Slattery, 2013). A Pete Dexter novel gets the gritty treatment, in one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s last movies. Hoffman attacks the thing with his usual lack of vanity; he looks lousy, and seems sad. The movie’s well-meant, but doesn’t much know where it’s going. (full review 5/16)
