Movie Diary 11/14/2017

In the Fade (Fatih Akin, 2017). A committed central performance from Diane Kruger anchors this melodrama from the Head-On director. Although mostly straightforward and touching on social issues like the rise of neo-Nazism, the film taps into an interesting undercurrent of the 2017 world: how things don’t go the way you assume they surely will, or a disbelief akin to realizing that your fellow citizens have elected an unabashed asshole as president. Somehow it’s in there, without overtly being in there.
