Movie Diary 7/20/2020

Amulet (Romola Garai, 2020). Horror of the arty kind, written and directed by the British actress from Atonement and I Capture the Castle. It’s an ambitious number about a nightmare-haunted former soldier (Alec Secareanu, from God’s Country) whose new lodging comes to seem increasingly ominous. There’s scary plumbing here. Good cast, with Carla Juri (Blade Runner 2049), Angeliki Papoulia (Dogtooth), and Imelda Staunton. (full review 7/24)
