  • Man from Reno

    Man from Reno

    ★★½

    Man from Reno bears an uncanny resemblance to No Country for Old Man, from its split narrative (an amateur in over their head and a grizzled cop!) to its (apparent) lack of mercy. It's biggest flaw may be that it doesn't give the mesmerizing Kazuki Kitamura the same screen time as the latter afforded to Javier Bardem. The film left me a little cold, but I'm grateful that it alerted me to talented actors like Kitamuri and Ayako Fujitani.

  • Nocturnal Animals

    Nocturnal Animals

    ★★½

    Nocturnal Animals plays like a film written by some sort of A.I. -- not one that can pass for a human, mind you, but one that's getting pretty darn close.

    Predestination

    ★★★★

    I finished the movie and promptly went to my whiteboard. What followed was a disaster, but the movie? Excellent.

  • Hail, Caesar!

    Hail, Caesar!

    ★★★½

    Wife's take: The Coen brothers do a Wes Anderson film.
