Movie Diary 5/9/2016

X-Men: Apocalypse (Bryan Singer, 2016). Singer clearly has a feel for the Xers, and while this installment is very, very reliant on previous stuff from the series, it does have a lot of oomph of its own, at least for a while. (full review 5/27)

Sunset Song (Terence Davies, 2015). Life in Aberdeenshire, in the years leading up to and including World War I. It is a Terence Davies film, for absolute sure, complete with songs.

The Man Who Knew Infinity (Matt Brown, 2016). True story of Srinivasa Ramanujan, a mathematical genius so significant he got name-checked in Good Will Hunting. Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons lead the cast, and you could do worse for this kind of respectable biopic. (full review 5/13)
