Moneyball succeeds in entertaining this non-sports fans by being an all too convincing portrayal of the com-modification of the human spirit. While Brad Pitt is clearly the lead it is truly a ensemble piece with every role contributing to the films purpose. Quiet what all the Clash paraphernalia in the boss' office was there for is a bit of a puzzle in that Joe 'n co. would have been appalled to be inspiring such a character!
A relentless gorefest , never lets up, truly stupefying in its savagery. A gritty Jaki Chan. Its unsparing depiction of people just about getting by in grotty urban settings gives it all a depth unusual in this genre. Young-kyu Jang & Byung-hoon Lee provide a truly thrilling soundtrack.
Contagion is , like all Soderbergh films, good looking and zips along. Its episodic structure and many characters serve to make it hard, however, to get involved. The central story is, of course, disturbing but as the body count mounts any shock value gets diluted and its all end up a bit too tidily. Jude Law being particularly bad - as he always is - doesn't help either.
Midnight In Paris is a welcome return to form for Woody Allen, his best since Sweet and Lowdown. The camera hovers over the many gorgeous parts of Paris as the whimsical, slight story plays out , diverting and entertaining all the time. Corey Stoll's Hemingway is a delight, bettering only slightly Brody's Dali. The narrative never sags , working up to a near perfect conclusion. Worth seeing again , if only to see that astonishing unbroken sequence in Versailles.
