    The Man Who Invented Christmas

    ★★★

    A nice Shakespeare in Love-style take on Dickens writing A Christmas Carol. It is handsomely produced considering it was an Ireland-Canada co-production and I suspect on the lower budget side.

    Awards prospects are dim, although the script is very witty.

  • Roman J. Israel, Esq.

    Roman J. Israel, Esq.

    ★★★

    The first half of this movie is one of the best movies of the year. The ending doesn’t quite live up to the promise of the set-up, but I love the writing and I love how Denzel can just embody a new iconic character like he’s eating breakfast in the morning. The man makes it look easy.
