    The Art of Self-Defense

    ★★½

    I was expecting a dweebish Eisenberg movie but this was a wild ride.

    Too good to be considered bad yet not bold enough to be great.

  • The Laundromat

    The Laundromat

    ★★½

    Despite compelling and with an important thematic, the greatest accomplishment of this film is to put together this many familiar faces in a Netflix production.

    While it fakes it’s way in an attempt to be “The Big Short” of the Panama Papers leak, it also fails miserably with such plain plot.

    Beautiful colours and a few smart camera movements probably made my ears forget about paying attention to the soundtrack – this or it was so unremarkably generic I can’t remember listening to sounds other than the characters’ lines.
