Movie Diary 10/7/2015

Bridge of Spies (Steven Spielberg, 2015). It might be two movies, but both are extremely fine. Spielberg’s casting touch is not only good in tiny little roles, but reaches its apex in Mark Rylance (giant stage reputation, limited movie stardom) as a Soviet spy. (full review 10/16)

Spotlight (Tom McCarthy, 2015). Mostly just an illustrated true-life saga, but a strong cast and understandable outrage help move along this account of the Boston Globe’s investigative bombshell about child abuse and the Catholic Church. (full review 11/13)
