Viewing Journal: 6/24/2010




43) CASINO JACK AND THE UNITED STATES OF MONEY
(2010 dir. Alex Gibney) Date Seen: June 24 2010




This was pretty good. Nothing groundbreaking. It's like the third documentary I've seen this year that is curiously derivative of the work of Errol Morris. It's a formula but it bloody works!








42) LET THE RIGHT ONE IN
(2008 dir. Thomas Alfredson) 4th Viewing: June 24 2010

Retains its power after many viewings. There's something quietly devastating about this film's central friendship and finale. It really gets to me. It's an unexpectedly painful vision of childhood. Probably won't be another vampire movie this poignant anytime soon.
