Movie Diary 6/15/2016

De Palma (Jake Paltrow, Noah Baumbach, 2016). An illustrated monologue from the director, quick-paced and amusing. The clips are well-chosen, although the whole thing is more a work of enthusiasm than insight. (full review 6/24)

Florence Foster Jenkins (Stephen Frears, 2016). The tale of the world’s worst singer, a real person embodied here by Meryl Streep, who does what you expect with the dish of a role. The movie properly belongs to Hugh Grant, however, as the lady’s husband, a man who proves it is possible to be unfaithful and utterly loyal. (full review 8/12)
