Movie Diary 3/12/2023

The Oscars? Decent show, lots of blah winners. People who make movies do not always know how to watch movies.

Caught (Max Ophuls, 1949). A beautifully restored version. So densely rendered, and full of fascinating ways of shooting people in rooms. James Mason and Robert Ryan in top form, and while I can think of other actresses who might’ve been more dynamic than Barbara Bel Geddes, she does suit the rather unformed central role.
