Movie Diary 1/11/2016

Dreams Rewired (Manu Luksch, Martin Reinhart, Thomas Tode, 2015). Montage-essay-film on the subject of technical innovations and communication, narrated by Tilda Swinton, made up mostly of clips from silent and early-sound films. Take a moment to let that sink in, or possibly not. Swinton, speaking high-minded prose in a funny-slangy way, is a kick to listen to. Not entirely sure what the actual goal is, but many of the clips are swell. (full review 1/15)

Norm of the North (Trevor Wall, 2016). Cartoon, a polar bear, cheapjack animation, script same. It’s possible the outline of King Kong is visible, not that it matters. Rob Schneider is the voice of Norm. (full review 1/15)
