My review this week for the Scarecrow blog, and etc.

Spaceship Earth. “Wolf is fortunate that the Allen folks were documenting their own existence from the beginning; there’s a huge amount of colorful footage of their escapades even before the media turned its hungry attention to Biosphere 2.”

More of my 1980s reviews added this week at What a Feeling!, including: Bill Forsyth’s gentle comedy Breaking In, with a “one for myself” role for Burt Reynolds; Robert Dornhelm’s Cold Feet, written by Tom McGuane and Jim Harrison, with a honey of a role for Tom Waits; Allan Arkush’s Caddyshack II, with the resurgent Jackie Mason (what, you don’t recall when Jackie Mason surged again?); Gordon Hessler’s The Girl in a Swing, a sultry thriller with Meg Tilly (from a novel by Watership Down author Richard Adams); and Robert Zemeckis’s Back to the Future, of which you may have heard.
