Labour Day weekend is, traditionally, a dead zone for movies … but at least one of this week’s releases is pretty decent. Shall we?
The Light Between Oceans: Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz get very emotional in Derek Cianfrance’s period melodrama, which starts strong but finishes less so.
Morgan: The Witch‘s Anya Taylor-Joy is a bioengineered person who gets all killy in this sf-horror entry, which Glenn sees as a great deal of wasted potential.
The New Rijksmuseum: This Dutch documentary chronicles the restoration of the venerated Amsterdam museum over nearly a decade. Sounds pretty soothing, to be honest.
The 9th Life of Louis Drax: Ooooooh, I hated this one.
Up for Love: Rad is aghast at the execution of this romantic dramedy starring Virginie Efira as a woman who falls for a very short man, who is played by The Artist‘s Jean Dujardin and some digital effects.
And that’s it for the week. Back to the TIFF pre-screenings! Toni Erdmann is so good, you guys.
