    Tender. Warm. See it with a friend.

  • TÁR



    Gets broad and silly and kind of collapses in on itself in the end - why put Adam Gopnik on my screen for what feels like 10 minutes only to plow through all of...that - but the first 2/3rds are pretty solid. Blanchett's good, of course.

    Lawrence of Arabia


    An egomaniac ventures abroad convinced that he can remake the world and that he wants to do so for noble reasons. He accomplishes nothing, gets scores of those who trusted him killed, commits some war crimes, and returns home consumed with self-loathing and the very same longing for purpose and meaning that pulled him away in the first place. Dated and irrelevant, obviously.
