Hanna (Joe Wright, 2011). Some young actors might have a hard time holding down an entire movie; Saoirse Ronan is not one of those. Also, file under “worth the price of admission” the sight of Tom Hollander as a gay hitman giving chase in a lemon-yellow tracksuit. (full review 4/8)
Circo (Aaron Shock, 2010). The traveling circus isn’t what it used to be, but this documentary about a Mexican family circus is hard to look away from. (full review 4/22)
The Music Never Stopped (Jim Kohlberg, 2011). A movie based on an Oliver Sacks case, and a good example of how committed actors and an interesting idea can get something cooking beyond a general TV-movie treatment. J.K. Simmons and Lou Taylor Pucci are the main actors in question. (full review 4/1)
At my other website, What a Feeling!: Big Top Pee-wee, a three-ring disappointment.
