[The Death of Mister Lazarescu][Twelve and Holding]

The Death of Mister Lazarescu is a Romanian film about an evening that an elderly man spends being shuttled from hospital to hospital. It was longer than I had expected it to be (note to self: when plotting a tight schedule, do not assume all movies are two hours) but totally engaging.

Twelve and Holding is an American film about three friends dealing with the death of a fourth. Very intense. Some elements of the plot might be taken as extreme, but worked within the structure. It was interesting seeing it with an audience; the way they react to obesity was pretty depressing but not surprising.
