Movie Diary 8/27/2019

Don’t Let Go (Jacob Aaron Estes, 2019). Estes directed two previous features, Mean Creek and The Details, and they were interesting enough to make you wonder whether he’d put it together at some point. Not yet, it seems, although there are some shudders in this time-bending story of an LAPD copy (David Oyelowo) receiving phone calls from the past. (full review 8/29)

While We’re Young (Noah Baumbach, 2014). A re-visit to a pleasant comedy, just for wind-down time. Forgot how fine Charles Grodin is in this.
