Movie Diary 3/24/2015

Children of No Importance (Gerhard Lamprecht, 1926). A screening at the Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema, in Bo’ness – the Hippodrome is Scotland’s oldest surviving purpose-built cinema. A beautiful film about the plight of foster children, made with a neo-realist attention to detail but also with great craft. The image of a carousel is repeated, to beautiful effect, and the faces onscreen are remarkable.

Spring (Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead, 2014). It would be cool to see this movie without knowing what was going to be sprung upon you, but even knowing that it’s a slacker romance that becomes a horror picture won’t diminish some of the nuttiness. It’s not all there, but the idea is both amusing and sincere. (full review 3/27)
