    Before I Go

    ★★★★½

    Friends, it is a rare movie indeed that has me laughing out loud repeatedly, and then bursting into tears at the end. A true gem, and a fantastic performance by Anabella Sciorra (and the rest of the cast). I loved this. (on Prime)

    Surviving Christmas with the Relatives

    At 42:33, after trying to understand whether I was feeling aversion or just wasn't getting it, I stopped this and went to LB reviews to see if I was missing something. No. Abysmal.

    The Heiress

    ★★★★★

    An acting tour de force on all fronts, but I think Ralph Richardson's performance stands out as one of the best I've seen. His character's dismay, revulsion, frustration, and crushing disappointment are tightly bound by his commitment to decorum and politeness, but flash out through his steely gaze anyway. Every sarcastic comment reveals a ferocious intelligence at work. He has created what he despises, and reaps the harvest. Is the end a triumph of sorts, or a terrible tragedy? The always superb William Wyler gives this his sure directorial hand, and the beautifully lit and composed layered camera shots are textbook perfect.

    Clever at first, but that wears thin quickly.
