Lady of the Lake

Lady of the Lake

★★☆☆ – (1998) – A young man falls under the spell of a watery witch who can’t ditch her oppressors of the past or present. Begins as a total bore that slowly improves when bringing in new ideas. Convoluted, but at least tries to mean something while traveling between eras.

Berberian Sound Studio

Berberian Sound Studio

★½☆☆ – (2012) – A sound technician on his first horror movie discovers the subject matter is truer than anticipated. Okay for the banter between dysfunctional characters, but after a while the the same scenes appear to repeat themselves. Moves at a crawl and lacks a coherent point.

Night of Dark Shadows

Night of Dark Shadows

★½☆☆ – (1971) – An aspiring artist moves into an inherited manor only to confront the dark past of his relatives. The atmosphere is the only eye opening commodity, since the plot and characters are painfully drab. Raises boredom even during moments of mobility.
