I’ve been in going-to-The Manor-movie-mode lately and have seen some good ones. Here are the micro reviews:
Mud: Odd story. A bit of suspense and the ending delivers. It works.
Frances Ha: Loved the way it was shot. Very inventive, pleasing sense of place. Cool characters. The premise was a bit weak for my taste. Not enough at stake.
Much Ada About Nothing: A total treat. Shot in black and white. Beautiful people speaking beautiful language in beautiful surroundings. No big stars. It’s all shot at director Joss Wheden’s house in 12 days — amazing.
