Wanderlust; The Forgiveness of Blood
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Joe Morgenstern considers David Wain's comedy of hippie chaos that makes nudity a selling point, and Joshua Marston's film on blood feuds and land disputes in Albania.
You may think you've seen silly and swarmy and inept, but wait 'till you see Wanderlust, though that's just a figure of speech...
Imagine a village where many of the kids are on Facebook, but the dominant social network perpetuates a legal code, dating back to the 15th century, that dictates ruthlessly harsh rules for settling blood feuds... Northern Albania is the setting for The Forgiveness of Blood.
