The Media 10 doesn’t usually reviews movies, but we are changing that with “Quick Takes” a new segment that gives at most two paragraphs to recently seen movies.
The Theory of Everything (★★★)
“The Theory of Everything” is constantly at war with biopic conventionalism. With a sentimental, above-average script sculpted into something much more aesthetically pleasing. With top class directorial choices, acting, editing, cinematography, and composition, “The Theory of Everything” is a step above the rest of its genre’s field.
A Most Wanted Man (★★)
“A Most Wanted Man” feels like a procedural espionage thriller. Almost too procedural, as it hinges on the performance of the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman who delivers in every on-screen moment. The story, adapted from John le Carré’s book of the same name, was probably best formatted for that medium. However, a strong conclusion makes the film worth the watch.
