Writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon,) and director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech,) assemble a stellar cast for this made for TV Movie about the Moors Murderers, and the Lord (Longford) who sought the redemption of one of them: Myra Hindley. It's so good: yes!
I barely remember Capote, and I'm sure it's good, but this Truman Capote In Cold Blood biopic features his New York City socialite friends, and a romance with Daniel Craig: yes!
Huge hit in France, (probably soon to be remade by Hollywood) starring the incredibly charismatic Omar Sy. Awkward social situation, but funny, and touching: yes.
Daniel Day Lewis is great as Lincoln; and Janusz Kaminski's cinematography is the best thing that ever happened to Steven Spielberg. 250 minutes...
Ben Affleck was in danger of being eclipsed by cohort Matt Damon, but Argo helps even out their career trajectories. Mr. Affleck has taken a page out of Robert Mitchem's book and does very little acting, and it really works for him! Love the suspense; the era was beautifully reproduced, my favorite film of 2012, so far...
It's funny, and I love Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine, but it's kinda creepy to like a killer: don't you think?
Tahar Rahim portrays a fictitious Algerian black marketeer turned resistance fighter in Nazi occupied Paris. Loosely based on the life of Paris Mosque rector Si Kaddour Benghabrit (Michael Lonas,) and Algerian/Moroccan/Jewish singer Salim Halali. Yes.
Long, violent, flawed, yet engaging true life action drama starring Gerard Butler, Michelle Monaghan, and Michael Shannon. What is up with that horrible accent, Gerard? I forgive you...
