Movie Diary 4/18/2017

The Promise (Terry George, 2016). Draping a Zhivago over the Armenian genocide. The characters played by Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, and Charlotte Le Bon would not be out of place in a 1940s picture. (full review 4/21)

Superbeast (George Schenck, 1972). About ten minutes’ worth of dialogue and action is spread throughout this 93-minute film, a flaccid Island of Dr. Moreau deal shot in the Philippines. That leaves a lot of dead air in which to insert your own material, which is recommended.
