Hail, Caesar! (2016) ****

Brolin channels PolitoTatum is actually good, and the Coens manage (unsurprisingly) to both parody and display their affection for Old Hollywood. I laughed a lot and I loved it. It reminded me of another Coen favorite THE HUDSUCKER PROXY with dashes of LEBOWSKI and THE MAN WHO WASN'T THERE.

The Lobster (2015) ****

Really enjoyed this film. It was as if Spike Jonze and PTA co-directed a film with creative input by Quentin Dupieux. It also reminded me of FULL METAL JACKET in the way that it had 2 "sections", with the 2nd half being slower. The ending was perfect.
