On the Road

I haven't read the novel, but am not enticed to do so after seeing this movie. Budding writer hits the road seeking inspiration. But the movie is a string of random events that make it disengaging. Star cast in tiny roles seem a waste of their talents.

Promised Land

This is an entertaining and thought-provoking drama, were it not that the moral objections are so blatantly shoved in your face the whole time and the ending is overly sentimental.

Margin Call

Great financial thriller. Even though most of the financial talk goes right over the viewer's head, it resonates with the memories of the 2008 crisis. Pity the focus never leaves the office buildings.
