Help, It's Milton Moses Ginsberg

My latest batch of reviews covers not only the dreadful feel-good racial quagmire The Help, but a piece on two intriguing films (screening next week at BAM) by cult director Milton Moses Ginsberg as well as a pair of not entirely unsuccessful new releases.

In fairness, the source material for "One Day" is the arbiter of the "tear-jerking machinations" of the ending. And though I haven't seen the film yet, I'm disappointed that they resorted to sweeping romantic scenes. The novel was beautifully understated in that regard.
