Surprised how engaged I was by this Oscar bait. Conveys Turing's importance on several levels.
99 HOMES ★★★★★
Might've been syrupy kitchen-sink flick, is instead exhilarating capitalism drama. The Dardennes meets BREAKING BAD.
STILL ALICE ★★★★★
Julianne Moore-Alec Baldwin-Kristen Stewart. Excellent Alzheimer's drama. (Was strong enough without weepy music.)
THEY HAVE ESCAPED ★★★★☆
A teenagers on the run love story that keeps shifting gear, until a surprisingly brutal climax.
AMERICAN HEIST ★★★½☆
Hayden Christensen - Adrien Brody. Hubristic crime title not matched by result, but is fitfully entertaining.
