Under the Silver Lake (***1/2) – Jesus wouldn’t hide a message in a message

"Garfield is good in a performance that would test the limits of any actor. His eyes betray a vulnerability that his actions don't always match. He is clothed in an ignorance, like NEO from The Matrix. He just doesn't have anyone there to guide him as clearly as Morpheus. "

Logan Lucky (****1/2) is Ocean’s on a budget

This film is a perfect Sunday afternoon flick. Low commitment and it doesn't cure the world's ills. There are some touching moments like the last time you hear that John Denver song. There is some amount of overdoing it with the accent, especially on the peripheral characters. It's a minor quibble, though. If you like movies, but aren't shooting for the moon, this is it. Where else are you going to hear Patsy Cline in a bar?
