Movie Diary 4/25/2016

Sing Street (John Carney, 2016). The guy who made Once and Begin Again goes it one more time with a music tale, this one not especially believable but often likable. (full review 4/29)

Papa: Hemingway in Cuba (Bob Yari, 2016). Another go-round with the legend, as young reporter Giovanni Ribisi meets the author in Havana. Hard to get around the awkward biopic stuff, but the movie is sincere, anyway. Adrian Sparks plays Hemingway, in a close physical take on the role. (full review 4/29)

Mysterious Island (Cy Endfield, 1961). A childhood touchstone, out of Jules Verne. The thing with the giant bee walling in Michael Callan and Beth Rogan is still creepy. Music by Bernard Herrmann, effects by Ray Harryhausen.
