Movie Diary 9/8/2016

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years (Ron Howard, 2016). The title suggests the confused focus of this excuse for vintage footage. Still it’s the Fabs, so great stuff abounds. The feature is followed by the Beatles’ Shea Stadium performance, newly remastered (two songs from that set that were always missing from the footage are still missing, but I don’t want to get too deep in the weeds). In terms of touch, Howard is no Scorsese when it comes to this kind of thing. (full review 9/16)

Disorder (Alice Winocour, 2016). Matthias Schoenaerts plays a soldier with PTSD, currently employed as bodyguard to the wife (Diane Kruger) of a shiftily-wealthy official. A strange film, at times as woozy  as the protagonist’s nervous system. The soundtrack sounds exactly like what tinnitus really sounds like. (full review 9/16)
