Movie Diary 6/30/2015

One Cut, One Life (Ed Pincus, Lucia Small, 2014). Final testament for the documentary maker Pincus, who chose to film his last months with a terminal illness, to the consternation of everybody. Not really an illness movie, more of a “Why do we feel the need to document every moment?” movie. (full review 7/3)

When Marnie Was There (Hiromasa Yonebayashi, 2014). A Studio Ghibli deal, about a shy type who goes to the seaside for a summer and befriends the possibly ghostly girl in the mysterious mansion across the tidal flats. Not as luminous as Yonebayashi’s Secret World of Arietty, but plenty easy on the eyes nonetheless. (full review 7/3)
