Due to family matters (see below), I’ve not had many chances for movie watching recently, and this week’s posts reflect that. I did make time Monday for some thoughts on Anne Heche (above right), an actress who left a distinctive imprint on the films she made and whose gift was often overlooked in the attention paid her by the tabloids.
As for new movies in theaters or on demand, well, it’s late August and the pickings are traditionally slim. I look at “Spin Me Round” (with Alison Brie, above), a tricky romantic comedy premiering on VOD and point you to “Leave Her To Heaven,” a little-known but surprisingly influential suspense classic on the Criterion Channel.
Thanks for reading. Feel free to pass Ty Burr’s Watch List along to your friends.
