    House of Gucci

    ★★★★

    Not as camp or farcical as the trailers might lead you to believe. I was unsure if I'd be able to see Lady Gaga as a character rather than as Lady Gaga, but she disappeared into the role of Patrizia Reggiani completely.

    I appreciated the ways the movie used its period setting without turning it into a theme park; the music cues (some of them anachronistic) were pretty great throughout. And probably not surprisingly, the costumes in this film are absolutely ace. I loved the whole film overall, a welcome and surprising treat.

    A film that's as pretty as a painting, and with about as much depth.

    The decision to leave the original poem's odd signs and portents just as disconnected and unexplained as they are in the text was certainly.. a choice, but it leaves the film feeling lost in its own ponderousness.

    Dev Patel's terrific performance seems to come from an entirely different movie, being as warm and human as it is. The only other characters who feel similarly alive are…

    The Hateful Eight

    ★★★★½

    In December of 2015, the remake of "Star Wars" is like a high-dollar but illicit massage parlor, all pleasant smells, gentle tickles, and "surprises" that only a virgin wouldn't have known were in store.

    "The Hateful Eight" is a stink bomb tossed through the window of that massage parlor; raw, awkward, uncomfortable cinema that asks questions you may not want to answer. It's the 3-hour, booze fueled and highly emotional debate, versus the "Star Wars" 2-hour gentle handjob.
