Movie Diary 1/19/2016

Ip Man 3 (Wilson Yip, 2015). Yet another film about the real-life kung fu grandmaster, with Donnie Yen in the lead. Good fights, outrageous melodrama, and Mike Tyson. This baby will make money all over the world. (full review 1/20)

The World of Kanako (Tetsuya Nakashima, 2014). Japanese cult weirdness, partly redeemed by the heroic presence of Koji Yakusho. Otherwise, some real unpleasantness along the way. (full review 1/22)

Lamb (Ross Partridge, 2015). Indie actor Partridge also directs this dicey story of a middle-aged man who spirits away an 11-year-old girl (Oona Laurence, a strong performer) for not-quite-clear purposes. A queasy experience. (full review 1/22)
