    Tomorrow's Children 1934

    ★★ Watched 21 Apr, 2016

    Creaky but sincere anti-sterilization scare piece, interesting mostly as a bizarre meeting of talents (and “talents”): Crane Wilbur, underappreciated director of noir prison flicks and onetime star of The Perils of Pauline; Harlem Renaissance writer Wallace Thurman; and Ed Wood cinematographer William C. Thompson. (Bonus: One of the doctors is played by Sterling Holloway, the voice of Disney’s Winnie The Pooh.)

    No one's written the Great American Novel yet, but James Gray went ahead and made a movie out of it anyway.

    Simply gorgeous. Takes wuxia, the most over-played genre in Chinese film, and makes it seem completely alien without subverting any of its gestures or values.
