    The Devil's Backbone

    ★★★★½

    If you see this movie and end up thinking that it's okay, good.

    But whatever your opinion is, please be civil. I get that it's the end of the series in many ways. I get that it's a follow-up to a divisive movie. I get that it's part of a series that has generated…
