    I Care a Lot

    ★★★★

    Rosamund Pike is back in form in I Care a Lot, her most chilling role since Gone Girl (2014). It's a rare move to have a film feature multiple "villains" (some in the truer since than others) forcing the audience to choose internally who they want to "win" because let's face it, none of them deserve it.

THIS is what I'm talking about with Hill when comparing it to my last review of The Sitter. He needs someone co-starring with him to bounce comedy lines off of. It played perfectly in this throwback to the old 1980's tv series that originally got Johnny Depp his break in the industry. The plot…
