Movie Diary 7/16/2014

I Origins (Mike Cahill, 2014). The director of Another Earth returns with another woo-woo sci-fi offering, and if you liked that one you might like this one. Michael Pitt and Brit Marling lead the cast. If she married him, she’d be Brit Pitt. (full review 7/25)

Dragonwyck (Joseph L. Mankiewicz, 1946). Gothic doings with dreamy-headed farm daughter Gene Tierney called in to assist at mysterious cousin Vincent Price’s grand Hudson River mansion. Lots of ceilings in this movie. Arthur Miller photographed, and Alfred Newman scored; they both earned their money.
