Movie Diary 5/3/2016

The Meddler (Lorene Schafaria, 2016). Big performance by Susan Sarandon, as a widow bestowing her brassiness on an unsuspecting L.A. It’s sold as a mother-daughter comedy (Rose Byrne, very convincingly depressed, is the offspring in question), but it’s really Sarandon’s show. (full review 5/13)

11 Minutes (Jerzy Skolimowski, 2015). Skolimowski can’t be pinned down, I guess – he goes from being a semi-famous Polish director to playing a role in an Avengers movie to bouncing back with this very digital-age picture. It’s about intersecting lives, and is a pretty odd but skillful effort. (full review 5/6)
