Jackie
Jackie (2016)
2 days ago via Movies on Android phone

a microcosmic biopic acted admirably by Nat for the almost schizo mosaic of roles (victim, widow, mother, first lady, interviewee, funeral planner, penitent) in this regal fairytale turned tragedy. the music and costumes made me nostalgic of an era just before my time.

The Light Between Oceans

a cautionary tale about hard choices whilst facing personal grief, and the consequences of not doing the right thing, until it's way too late. great closure though. and sadly well-acted with beautiful isolated lighthouse cinematography. i hesitated in catching this movie for fear of discomfiting tears, and it delivered in that department. weisz, vikander, fassbender, and the child caught between them, acted impeccably.

Hugely more satisfying in music, vocals, scriptwriting, humour and arguably, acting, than the other musical movie of this season. Sing is good fun for everyone - i love the getaway gorilla and Rube Goldberg-inspired sow best!

Heartbreaker (L'Arnacoeur)

a wonky business which serves to break couples up. the suave professional tritely falls for his victim whilst trying to tear her away from her perfect British gentleman fiance. The support crew carry the show as the leads aren't very inspiring.

La La Land
La La Land (2016)

Les Parapluies de Cherbourg meets Singing in the Rain at Sunset Boulevard sans the old diva. Fun music and dance sequences, but despite Emma's best efforts at injecting life and expression into this classic tale of young struggling artists, Ryan's vacant stoicism prevents viewers from really engaging with the characters. One's probably better off going to Ave Q on Broadway...
