I'm gonna keep it real short this week as I'm in a poor state of health and feel as if I'm at death's door. OK, that's a slight exaggeration.
I found half of Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" to be decent enough, especially Leonardo DiCaprio's performance. Unfortunately, the first half of the picture was just as over-stylized as everyone feared it might be. All in all, it's not a bad movie, just a flawed one.
I was pretty riveted by the true crime story "The Iceman," particularly by Michael Shannon's spellbinding work. Sad to say, I was not such a fan of Ben Wheatley's latest, "Sightseers," a grim comedy that wasn't particularly insightful, funny or inventive.
Here are my Patch reviews.
This coming weekend's reviews will include Noah Baumbach's "Frances Ha" and "Star Trek Into Darkness."
