Movie Diary 7/21/2014

Cannibal (Manuel Martin Cuenca, 2013). A precise, almost fussy portrait of a title character who has the qualities of precision and fussiness. His dietary habits are interesting, as the title indicates. Antonio de la Torre is excellent in the title role, and the movie keeps its control through the end. (full review 7/25)

Sleuth (Joseph L. Mankiewicz, 1972). It might not look as good as it did to a 13-year-old viewer in 1972, but it’s still a romp. Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine know what to do with something like this.
