Quickies for October 2015


Judgement at Nuremberg (1961)✬✬✬✬½
TCM

An assortment of great actors at the peak of their powers. Gripping, intense drama. They don't make 'em like this anymore.








Mercredi folle journée! (Day Off) (2001) ✭✭✭½
TV5

Amusing French ensemble dramedy detailing how a school holiday wrecks havoc in the town of Nantes. Wonderful cast.








Magic in the Moonlight (2014) ✭✭✭
Netflix DVD

After the first 3/4, you'll swear it's the best Woody Allen in years. Then it drags to a botched conclusion. A pity.
