The Imitation Game (Morten Tyldum, 2014). The true story’s a humdinger, and there’s a batch of good British actors, and Tyldum directed the ridiculously fun Headhunters. So that’s why people are already calling the Oscar race. Maybe, but it is nice to have a movie come down on the side of reason and logic. (full review 11/21)
Goodbye, Dragon Inn (Tsai Ming-Liang, 2003). Somehow missed this one the first time around: Tsai spinning mood and humor out of a near-empty movie theater showing King Hu’s Dragon Inn. Droll and lovely. Doing some prep here for a Magic Lantern talk about filmmakers who make Time a character in movies.
