    ★★★★½

    Jessica Chastain is the best actress of her generation.


    (EDIT: Unless we’re counting Viola Davis as being in the same generation, in which case, it’s her.)

    ★½

    Strong cast, but this film is torn between genres and tones. And it’s “twist” is so over-the-top manipulative. I didn’t like this much at all, but I can’t deny the acting talent on display.

    THE FAVOURITE beats this like Horatio beats all the other ducks in the city.

    Fargo

    ★★★★★

    Is there anyone who can write like the Coen Brothers? No, of course not. They are so uniquely gifted. To be able to craft one masterpiece - which Fargo most surely is - is fantastic enough. But they’ve made multiple in the course of their career. They are a treasure of cinema.
