Movie Diary 9/27/2016

A Man Called Ove (Hannes Holm, 2015). A lot of people will like this Swedish comedy, and there are some decent reasons for that. Quite a bit of geezer humor, but a sufficiently dry central performance helps win the day. (full review 9/30)

The Birth of a Nation (Nate Parker, 2016). The movie diary of Nat Turner, with the rabble-rousing movie itself now over-clouded by the past of its director. A blunt object, though with its share of haunting and haunted faces – certainly including Parker’s own. (full review 10/7)
