    Howard Hughes: The Man and the Madness

    ★★★★

    Good documentary. Howard Hughes was quite an interesting character and I learned a few things about him that I didn't know.

  • The Catcher Was a Spy

    The Catcher Was a Spy

    ★★★½

    This movie is a character study more so than it is a spy movie, and in a way it succeeds. Yet somehow it's a bit shallow and at times over the top, with redundant scenes and some big names cast in minor roles. While I can't really say this is a bad movie, it's certainly a missed opportunity for something much more compelling.

    One Deadly Summer

    ★★★½

    A curiously uneven movie. Using shifting narrative, it starts off as a romantic comedy/drama, then shifts into more serious territory and eventually the dark tone takes over. If you are not too distracted by Isabelle Adjani to pay attention, you may appreciate the complex plot involving revenge and tragic ending, yet somehow it's a bit too clumsy to be a serious thriller.

    ★★★★½

    Considering that this movie was directed by David Lynch's daughter, I was expecting a somewhat unconventional movie. While I wouldn't describe it as surreal, the narrative is non-linear, relying on flashbacks to slowly reveal the mystery. Unlike some reviewers, I was totally caught by surprise by the revelation. I realize that some suspense of disbelief is needed to completely buy into the story, but still, it's very well done, keeping the viewer on the edge of the seat until the end.
