Movie Diary 2/8/2021

Land (Robin Wright, 2020). Wright plays a grieving woman who isolates herself in a Wyoming cabin and tries to live, or die, there. Kindly local hunter-philosopher Demian Bichir pops by at times. The best that can be said about this situation is that Wright is very sincere about all of this, although that might also be the worst thing that can be said.

Double Indemnity (Billy Wilder, 1944). Timeless as ever. This is the first film up for discussion in the new “semester” of Scarecrow Academy, “The Art in Noir: Film Noir and the Director”; we’ll meet via Zoom at 2 p.m. Pacific Time on Saturday, February 13, for our first discussion in this series. Check out the registration page here for more information about how to join us. The sessions are free.
