Performances that stay with you. Cinematography (by Roger Deakins) to die for. Waiting for Godot in the sand. All geared up and cranked up and no one to shoot. The hip journos — the ones I’ve spoken to who are sharp and fair-minded enough to get the unique character of it, not to mention the sublime quality of presentation — are liking and admiring Sam Mendes’ Jarhead (Universal, 11.4).
