Movie Diary 8/23/2021

The Suicide Squad (James Gunn, 2021). I wrote about it for the Scarecrow blog.

Point Blank (John Boorman, 1967). Noir done up in L.A.’s “golden sunshine,” as David Lynch likes to call it. This film moves beautifully, even if jaggedly, each piece cracking along after the other. Lee Marvin’s performance is amazingly committed to the approach; he’s sometimes weirdly passive, other times cruel – an unexpected actor for an attempt at an art film.
