Micro movie reviews

I'm behind on these.
  • Crazy Horse--a long, Frederick Wiseman (i.e. narrationless) documentary on the Paris nightclub. Long on sexy, nearly naked dancing, short on the dancers' stories.
  • Shame--the story of a super-handsome guy with a sex addiction and a crazy sister. Not a sympathetic, or even half-way interesting, character in the whole film.
  • The Iron Lady--excellent Streep performance, lousy film.

Mangled metaphor of the day

It’s a matter of coming up with something that does not kill the baby with the bath water.
