Almadovar leaves his usual melodrama behind in his masterful and moving memory-film "Pain and Glory."
How wonderful it would be for the Oscar to go Antonio Banderas for his quiet performance in this tender film that actually means something instead of to Joaquin Phoenix's overbaked "Joker" that doesn't add up.
A terrific star turn for 3/4 of the movie. Unfortunately, as it becomes increasingly obvious that no one's thought this mess through, Phoenix becomes the guest who's stayed too long at the party and has worn out his welcome.
Certainly not Christie's best, and Julian Fellowes' pedestrian screenplay doesn't give his fine cast enough time to shine. Masterpiece did this kind of thing with far more charm, wit and passion.
