Review: DONT LOOK BACK
It’s fascinating to see this film 50 years later, now that we’re used to a much older Bob Dylan.
Quick Take: 438 DAYS
Well-crafted, even if it doesn’t build much tension.
Quick Take: DOWNTON ABBEY
It’s like a longish but comforting visit to old friends; fun, with a few earnest touches.
Review: THE RETURN
This is a portrait of brotherly love that’s hard to forget, made even more emotional by a series of still photos from the journey that ends the film.
Quick Take: IT: CHAPTER TWO
Very similar to the first chapter, there aren’t enough genuine scares and the effects-laden climax goes on for almost 45 minutes.
Quick Take: AMERICAN FACTORY
A compelling portrait of culture clashes, certainly relevant in the global economy, and packed with honest lessons on labor relations.
Review: APOLLO 11
Many documentaries can just as well be seen on a smaller TV screen, but this one should be enjoyed in a cinema.
Quick Take: KOKO-DI KOKO-DA
Very creative, there’s even a shadow play involving bunnies, but it doesn’t really come to a satisfying conclusion.
