Movie Diary 1/18/2017

Julieta (Pedro Almodovar, 2016). A melodrama in the Almodovar mode, but a discreet one, which is is interesting. It certainly is good to look at, given the filmmaker’s sure-handedness with color and camera. (full review 1/27)

Gold (Stephen Gaghan, 2016). Very loosely based on a true mining story, this project gives Matthew McConaughey a fat role as a sweaty speculator who finds gold in the Indonesia jungle, with help from a fellow prospector (Edgar Ramirez). A big swing, this one. (full review 1/27)
