Movie Diary 9/2/2014

The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears (Helene Cottet, Bruno Forzani, 2013). The giallo-happy filmmakers behind Amer return with another swing at re-creating the vibe of vintage Italian horror. I have a sinking feeling they really like Helmut Newton, too. (full review 9/5)

A Letter to Momo (Hiroyuki Okiura, 2013). Supernatural beasties intrude on the life of an 11-year-old girl who moves to the countryside. A fitting subject for Japanese animation, in other words, and despite the very slow pace, this one serves up its share of visual craziness. (full review 9/5)
