  • Ford v Ferrari

    Ford v Ferrari

    ★★★

    The movie would be more accurately named "Ford v Itself," or maybe "Ford v Its Own Corporate Bureaucracy," or "Two dudes working for Ford who really know their shit v Ford's bone headed executives."

    Au Hasard Balthazar follows the timeline during the life of a donkey, Balthazar. We get moments of hopefulness, moments of starting over. Then we get disappointment. Rinse and repeat. Balthazar is passed around. At times he is loved, at times he is…
