Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
. . . is not as bad as they say. There are a few poorly stitched seams here and there, but mostly it was interesting enough to be entertaining. Jude law plays a character similar to the one played by Ralph Feines in A Bigger Splash: someone who is ON 150%, in your face, all the time, impossible to ignore. When I encounter those types in real life, I avoid them like the plague, so that wore on me a bit, but . . . I knew nothing about Thomas Wolfe or Max Perkins so it was all new to me and pristine in its truthfulness because I don't know any different. I would recommend it.
Belladonna of Sadness: Good artwork, not my genre.
The Lobster: Weird, which I like, a little slow and depressing which I don't like, has Rachel Weiss who I adore. The Phremabameter would never have gotten over 70% without her.
Dheepan: A very engaging story well told.
