    ★★★★

    A favorite pastime is to plough through a literary narrative half awake in the optimistic anticipation of the few shots here and there which alter the mode of narration and reveal that which only cinema can reveal. In humble and hardly calibrated films such a this, these shifts seem to happen almost by accident, taking shape as little random discoveries of the private language of the medium itself.

    ★★½

    The most terrifying thing, of course, is that Todd Philips made this film to cement that he is on the side of the failed comedian.

    ★★★★½

    The Case Is Closed

    ★★★½

    In some alternate world where Mrinal does not know how to carefully block a scene, this film is likely of much less interest.
