Movie Diary 7/14/2014

A Summer’s Tale (Eric Rohmer, 1996). This installment of Rohmer’s “four seasons” cycle never actually got released for a proper run in the United States, for some reason. So here it is. And it is extremely nice to have an Eric Rohmer film playing. (full review 7/18)

Cleopatra (Joseph L. Mankiewicz, 1963). Lots of dialogue ringing out in those vast empty sets. You almost suspect Mankiewicz was under the impression that he was making something serious, were it not for the occasional old-time gag.

As It Is in Heaven (Joshua Overbay, 2014). Indie study of a small-time Southern cult, very minimalist but with a fondness for the moving camera. The apocalyptic breeze continues to blow through these end times. (full review 7/18)

Magic in the Moonlight (Woody Allen, 2014). It’s embargoed! Who knew? (full review 8/8)
