Movie Diary 9/29/2016

12:08 East of Bucharest (Corneliu Porumboiu, 2006). Half the film is watching three characters as they pass through the day of the Romanian Revolution; the other half is the same three awkwardly appearing on low-budget local TV. The droll humor is sustained throughout, and there isn’t a shot that isn’t distinctive (without violating the tilt toward realism). Porumboiu’s most recent is The Treasure.
