Movie Diary 11/15/2020

Ammonite (Francis Lee, 2020). A strong, austere film from the director of God’s Own Country. I review it here.

The Endless (Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead, 2017). I missed this the first time around. From the filmmaking partners who did Spring and Synchronic, this time putting themselves in the lead roles of the picture – which sounds like a vanity thing, but actually works out well. Two brothers go back to the cult camp from which they’d escaped ten years earlier, only to discover something very strange coalescing there. The movie has some familiar devices and a few big question marks, but the games it plays with time (when exactly is it set? how is it possible the men have been gone ten years when everything looks the same?) are smartly done.
