Movie Diary 3/11/2019

Wonder Park (?, 2019). Original director Dylan Brown was fired from the film for inappropriate conduct, and imdb doesn’t list anybody else yet, and I wasn’t taking notes during the credits, so who knows. That isn’t the only question mark about this odd movie, which tries to get a little Pixar-thoughtful stuff going but may end up traumatizing the unsuspecting. Also, I don’t much care for the monkey. (full review 3/15)

Some Like It Hot (Billy Wilder, 1959). The density of the Wilder-Diamond screenplay, the way every line of dialogue seems to connect to another line, is the kind of “world-building” I want in a movie. (Part of this series.)
