MAGGIE'S PLAN ★★★★½
Rebecca Miller delivers an arch indie comedy with aplomb, and brings along genre ambassadors Gerwig-Hawke-Moore-Hader-Rudloph for the ride.
"No one unpacks commodity fetishism like you do."
I love it when Julianne Moore channels her arty BIG LEBOWSKI persona.
THE FAMILY FANG ★★★★☆
Comedy segues into drama. Two for two from Jason Bateman as director. Kidman is on MARGOT game. Walken angry, always pleases.
MY BIG NIGHT ★★★☆☆
A movie length equivalent of the opening of INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM. Enjoyment hampered, unfortunately, by whiff of misogyny.
THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS ★☆☆☆☆
Tedious slasher exploitation. Poor characterisation and dialogue. Yawn-inducing baddies.
