"In Search of Beethoven," now at the Hollywood Theater (Nov. 20)

Categories:

In Search of Beethoven (Documentary)
Director: Phil Grabsky
With: Emanuel Ax, Ronald Brautigam, Sir Roger Norrington, etc.

In 2006, Grabsky gave us In Search of Mozart.  I was not particularly impressed, finding the documentary dry, academic and dull, exactly nothing like Mozart’s life.
Although this follows the same format as that film, In Search of Beethoven is far more involving and emotionally satisfying than the Mozart study.  Musicians, historians and conductors discuss the composer’s sad and brilliant career, and are able to illuminate the relationship between his life and his music.

Ed Goldberg and Doug Holm discuss and rate these movies:  "An Education,"  "2012," and "The Box."   They also discuss and recommend some memorable holiday movies, and talk about "500 Days of Summer" and "Paranormal Activity."

27:27 minutes (12.57 MB)

Two movies I missed when they were new.

Categories:

Paranormal Activity
Director: Oren Peli
With: Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat, Mark Frederichs

First, if you are subject to motion sickness, this film has a lot of hand-held camera movement, so you should avoid it.  Otherwise, it’s a nice, tight little horror film.
Paranormal was made for less than $20,000, and relies on character and the creation of suspense and terror.  There are no special effects that you couldn’t do at home.  Very clever.
But, it never rises above clever.  The Blair Witch Project, the most obvious analog, was more psychologically ambitious and involving.  Paranormal goes for a simpler but still effective story.
