    The Disaster Artist

    ★★★½

    In the land of the unending fan service, even the one-eyelid man is king. Normalizing The Room seems as ill-advised as normalizing a certain high profile public office holder, but this is also the most consistently funny mainstream movie I've seen in a long time. (OK, since Girls Trip.) And I say that as someone whose skin crawls at the idea of a fictionalized making of The Room including, in its cast, all three hosts of the smug "How Did This Get Made?" podcast. Low-hanging fruit, and it's a happy miracle that Franco has finally refrained from aiming stupidly high.

    Renoir would've dug it.

    ★½

    Eddie Redmayne plays transgender the way actors in the '30s and '40s played alcoholics.

    ★★½

    It's just heartening to know that, had it been released in 2016 instead of 1980, Xanadu would've gotten fantastic reviews.
