Elles (2011), Malgorzata Szumowska ★★★★
Elles, with Juliette Binoche getting caught up in her work, reminds me of Sean Baker’s Starlet (2012) a lot – but the later is a much better film, and if you didn’t notice, his new film Tangerine (2015) is playing (though not in this town yet).
About Elly (2015), Asghar Farhadi ★★★
About Elly starts seeming too idyllic. The performances at times seem forced, though the subject matter quickly goes south. I had to make an amazon uk region 2 purchase to see this. I think I need another viewing maybe next week.
Out of the Furnace (2013), Scott Cooper ★★★
Formulaic. Predictable. A worthy library dvd check out.
Maps to the Stars (2015), David Cronenberg ★★★★
