Briefly Noted - January 2015


Non-Stop (2014) ✭½ 


The first 20 minutes or so are actually pretty good, but then it all goes to shite in a hurry. My vote for Stupidest Movie of the Year.




The Dreamers (2003)✭✭✭

Mystery at the Moulin Rouge (2011) ✭✭½ 


Not even the divine Emilie Dequenne can save this dumb thing.

Haneke-style meditation on a family's grief. Gray, bleak, minimal, moving.
