Film Link Grab Bag

My only first-run film review this week deals with the disappointing documentary Kassim the Dream about a former Ugandan child soldier who became a boxing success in the United States. Of more interest are two repertory items I covered: The Moon and the Sledgehammer, Philip Trevelyan's forgotten look at a family living a pre-modern life just 20 miles outside of London, which is playing for a week at the Anthology Film Archives, and Tod Browning's comic change-of-pace Mark of the Vampire, screening tonight at Film Forum in a double bill with the director's intriguingly macabre West of Zanzibar.
