Mostly Lazy Eye is a two-character indie movie about two ex-lovers finding their way back to one another, for however long it might last and for whatever purpose. We all know what comes of tickling the dials on time machines like this, the danger as much from learning what went on before, as what could happen now. With some perfect acting though, and the idea of old lovers’ fits and starts reuniting especially telling in this day-and-age of Facebook reaching-out, writer-director Tim Kirkman’s Lazy Eye is some very good truthful filmmaking indeed.

Chen Si believes in a certain ‘live-no-matter-what-personal-horrors-one-encounters’ ethos. It’s a good dose of individual responsibility mixed with as much Communist philosophy that to commit suicide is as much a personal tragedy as a move against the state. Not that one would expect anything less from the actual angel of Angel of Nanjing, as he mans his weekend post, attempting to talk people down, in some cases even grab them off the ledge, before jumping to their death off The Yangtze River Bridge in China.
Reaching out to the master-of-suspense via fan letters, the young Truffaut managed to corral a very cordial and flattered Hitchcock to a sit down for eight days at Hitch’s offices at Universal Studios. This movie, showing many great candid stills from that conversation as well as keeps a running commentary of the actual interview from the notes is interspersed with current interviews about both filmmakers from Wes Anderson, Paul Schrader, Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin and Olivier Assayas.
