Hail, Caesar! (2016) ****

Image
In 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 (1994) with dashes of The Big Lebowski(1998) and The Man Who Wasn't There(2001).

The Lobster (2015) ****

Image
I really enjoyed The Lobster(2015). It's as if Spike Jonze and PTA co-directed a film with creative input by Quentin Dupieux. It also reminded me of Full Metal Jacket (1987) in the way that it had two "sections", with the second half being slower. The ending was perfect.
