Pete’s Dragon (David Lowery, 2016). From the director of the so-very-serious Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. The dragon has fur. I ask you. (full review 8/12)
How Green Was My Valley (John Ford, 1941). A beautiful film in which every composition, throw of light, and behavioral gesture bespeaks a fully-imagined community.
Private Property (Leslie Stevens, 1960). A weird one about two depraved punks (Corey Allen, Warren Oates) menacing an unfulfilled L.A. wife (Kate Manx). Overheated, for sure (Allen is trying to summon the corporeal form of Marlon Brando through sheer will), with some interesting low-budget moments.
