Most of the criticism of the film involves how awkwardly shoehorned this aspect is. It really doesn't affect the main narrative (the mafia/murder stuff) except to somewhat parallel the idea of corruption beneath a deceptively pristine surface. And that's not exactly ground-breaking social commentary.

I prefer the more Coen-influenced contingency humor of the mafia/murder stuff myself, and I think the kid was a pretty exceptional actor. The race stuff doesn't really make much of a difference one way or another.

I think you liked Nurse Betty a bit more than I did. Although I liked the clashes between fantasy and reality, I don't think they knew quite how to end it.

The lodgers (2017)
1920, rural Ireland. Anglo Irish twins Rachel and Edward share a strange existence in their crumbling family estate. Each night, the property becomes the domain of a sinister presence (The Lodgers) which enforces three rules upon the twins: they must be in bed by midnight; they may not permit an outsider past the threshold; if one attempts to escape, the life of the other is placed in jeopardy. When troubled war veteran Sean returns to the nearby village, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious Rachel, who in turn begins to break the rules set out by The Lodgers. The consequences pull Rachel into a deadly confrontation with her brother - and with the curse that haunts them.

The house has been empty since then, but now Paul and Bella Mallen move into the apartment. Bella Mallen suffers from forgetfulness and nervousness - at least that is what her husband tells her. An elderly horse wrangler, B.G. Rough worked as a policeman twenty years ago and still remembers the unsolved case. He notices that Mr. Mallen looks just like Louis Barre, Mrs. Barlow's nephew. And why does Mr. Mallen mysteriously leave every night just to go into the apartment next door, no. 14?

Once again Gosling staring inanely through a film and Leto hamming it up :down:

Thank god for the look, sound and holo-girlfriend :up:
I'm not the only one growing weary of Gosling's schtick? I mean it works for movies like Drive and Only God Forgives, and maybe even here, but it seems to be all he does. Even in La-La Land he just does this and occasionally sings and dances.
Does he have another trick?

Dr. Jekyll vs the Werewolf (1972)
Paul Naschy returns as El Hombre Lobo for the sixth time as he searches for a cure to his full moon maddness by visiting the grandson of the infamous Dr. Jekyll. What ensues next is a lover's triangle, and a savage sadistic Mr. Hyde who roams modern London and transforms into a werewolf on the disco floor. :D

I love these kind of ideas but unfortunately the studios seem to think these only belong in silly failed action-blockbusters.

Gaslight (1940)
Twenty years ago, old Mrs. Barlow was killed in her home at 12, Pimlico Square for her priceless rubies. The murderer searched the whole house without finding them, then disappeared. The house has been empty since then, but now Paul and Bella Mallen move into the apartment. Bella Mallen suffers from forgetfulness and nervousness - at least that is what her husband tells her. An elderly horse wrangler, B.G. Rough worked as a policeman twenty years ago and still remembers the unsolved case. He notices that Mr. Mallen looks just like Louis Barre, Mrs. Barlow's nephew. And why does Mr. Mallen mysteriously leave every night just to go into the apartment next door, no. 14?

When later remade as Gaslight (1944) with Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman, the studio (MGM) attempted to have all prints of this earlier version destroyed. Fortunately, it was unsuccessful (in fact it is thought that director Thorold Dickinson surreptitiously struck off a print himself before the negatives were binned). - Trivia :) hah

Captain Terror :up:
I quite like both versions of Gaslight. I give a bit of an edge to the '44 version, but they're both solid.

Julie Darling (1983)
This sombre European melodrama was also released as Julie Darling. A teenaged girl witnesses the rape and murder of mother. Because she hated her mom, the girl feels responsible for her death. Later on, her dad remarries. Despising her stepmother as much as she did the original article, Julie begins plotting her new mom's demise.

This movie gave me the creeps. Why didn't the father realize how messed up his daughter was? I don't want to watch this movie ever again. I love horror movies, but not when they actually make me feel uncomfortable. Don't see it unless you are doing some kind of report on Freud. - IMDB :D

The Disaster Artist (2017)
Aspiring actor Greg Sestero befriends the eccentric Tommy Wiseau. The two travel to L.A, and when Hollywood rejects them, Tommy decides to write, direct, produce and star in their own movie. That movie is The Room, which has attained cult status as the "Citizen Kane" of bad movies.

Trailer= https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPSJYXi7BWA

The standing ovation at the premiere was fictionalized but represents the future reception when the film became a cult hit. The real reaction of the first audience was uncomfortable silence and awkward laughter (described by one actress as "like trying not to laugh in church") - IMDB :D

I found The Disaster Artist enjoyable enough, but Franco not method-directing in Wiseau's style seems like a huge missed opportunity.

Thelma (2017)
Having just enrolled at a university in Oslo against her stern parents' will, the sheltered Biology freshman and devout Christian, Thelma, leaves for the first time the isolated Norwegian countryside, to start a new life away from home. Tangibly lonely, a casual conversation and an unexpected friendship in the face of the beautiful fellow student, Anja, will broaden Thelma's hazy horizons; however, as the glacially alluring misfit wrestles with an onslaught of novel feelings, an unprecedented psychosomatic manifestation of repressed emotions takes over. A mystery cloaks soft-spoken Thelma's past, and the more she struggles to renounce her nebulous desire, the more violent is her quivering awakening. But can Thelma find a denied truth behind a stinging temptation?
