Forgotten Gem: Murder By Death (****) is about the punchline

If you like Knives Out, this film is at least a spiritual predecessor to that comic mystery masterpiece. Absurdity is a journey in an of itself. The mystery is a bonus.


Downton Abbey (*****) – Violet shine

“Fellowes helped this American Irishman love and respect an English family, much like old Tom. Sure, they’re clueless at times, but they notice each other and they understand their place is one of duty, because of love. This is a great work in understanding humanity as it progresses. It’s one of the best films of the year, even if it feels like a victory lap.”
