    The Expendables 2

    ★★½

    In the film Expendables 2, the character Trench, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, says, “who’s next, Rambo?” which posits a few possibilities for the Expendables Universe:

    1. Stallone exists and played Rambo, Barney simply bears a strong resemblance

    2. Stallone does not exist and another actor played the titular Rambo in the film franchise

    Persona

    ★★★★

    There are some images that can only be captured in black and white and Bergman excels in the use of contrast and light to create them. The images, soft and dreamy at times, harsh and bright at others, reflect the themes of intimacy, the removal of masks to share who we really are and the consequences of that trust.

    Andersson and Ullmann are perfect together and Sister Alma’s descent into confusion and misconception is played so delicately as to bring us along with her, whether or not some of those things happened at all.
