film festival

We’ve seen some very enjoyable movies in the past couple of weeks.

Moon — see my earlier post.

Adventureland — coming of age in 1987 US — Jesse Eisenberg is excellent as the smart but naive literature student learning that love is painful.

Looking for Eric — Ken Loach’s cheering tender comedy in the gritty real world.

Mary & Max — a delightfully amusing claymation recreation of the true tale of the most odd couple — 8 year old suburban Australian Mary Daisy Dinkle and reclusive paranoid 44 year old jewish New Yorker Max Horovitz.

Limits of Control — am not sure how we’ve missed Jim Jarmusch before — this is surreal but beautifully filmed, well evoking aspects of Spain.

Departures — captivating — ‘beautifully performed character study’, ‘with grace and humanity’, ‘eloquent’.

Summer Hours — wonderfully affirming generosity of spirit.l'heure-d'ete_siblings
