    The Wizard of Lies

    ★★½

    For all its star power, this film isn't a patch on Madoff, which featured Richard Dreyfuss and Blythe Danner in the roles Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer phoned in here (Pfeiffer's exaggerated accent really jars compared took Danner's natural speech). Meh.

  • Too Big to Fail

    Too Big to Fail

    ★★★½

    A Planet Money podcast enacted by A list actors, Too Big to Fail focuses on Treasury Secretary ( and former Goldman Sachs executive) Hank Paulson, depicting him as the adult in the room, if not an actual hero. I take some issue with that.

    Excellent performances all around, though, and the writers did a good job making boring but important events interesting and understandable.

    Occupy should have burned it all down.

    ★★★★½

    Not since Ishii's Funky Forest has a Japanese movie made me laugh and get squicked out the way Hausu did. It's so batshit it's its own genre, with the only other film that might accompany it in said genre being Evil Dead. But Evil Dead is sedate and logical next to this. AWESOME.
