Nocturnal Animals (*) is weak

Ford has no talent that I can see for the art of movie making. Most of his shots come across like those awkward photos of kids in the 70's when you get the front view and a soft side view in one shot. It's supposed to be poignant and deep. It only produces awkward chuckles.

Sully (****1/2) provides a perfect landing

A good film leaves you wanting more, but knowing you've seen enough. Eastwood shows glimpses of Sully's past when they apply to how it made the hero with whom we're presented. His doubt is resistant to every indication that he deserves praise. It makes a remarkably satisfying result when we finally see the tide is turned in his own self-analysis. Hanks does all of this with a dry poignancy that is matched by Eastwood's spare presentation. If ever two talents were meant to work together, it is these two.
