    Dry, but not without interest.

    Or color.

    Molly's Game

    ★★★

    I'm not the hugest Aaron Sorkin fan, but I do like some of his work.

    And I liked "Molly's Game."

    The film starts with a bang and has a nice pace to it. It's overlong, but doesn't feel overlong. Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba are fantastic, as is Michael Cera as the evil Tobey Maguire. The film isn't as cohesive as it might be, because it's about too many things: competition, daddy issues, ambition, the law, etc. It's entertaining, but somewhat less than the some of its entertaining parts.

    ★★★

    Obnoxious, but also provocative and entertaining.

    The Hitch-Hiker

    ★★★

    Taut road movie/noir with memorable psycho villain and parched southwestern landscapes. The ending is a bit of a letdown, but the tension, suspense and stark black-and-white photography make for an unsettling and worthwhile journey.
