News and Notes
House of Sand and Fog
This adaptation of the novel by Andre Dubus III is one of those rare films that made me very angry. I'm not talking about being pissed off because I've wasted my time and money watching something completely vacuous or being let down by a movie that copped out in the end. I was angry because of the events that played out before me on the screen. How could these people let this happen?! And then I remembered that these were characters in a movie, not my neighbors or co-workers. So kudos to Dubus, Perelman, et. al. for manipulating my emotions so skillfully. You bastards!
