Movie Diary 6/20/2016

The Flapper (Alan Crosland, 1920). The engaging Olive Thomas stars in a story of a small-town girl who won’t behave. Very pleasant to see a film that isn’t a masterpiece but is simply a very well-tooled comedy. Showed with live organ accompaniment at the Paramount Theatre.

The Music of Strangers (Morgan Neville, 2016). Documentary about Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble project, in which musicians from various countries come together to blend their sounds. This is a very upbeat film. (full review 6/24)
