Movie Diary 2/1/2017

Toni Erdmann (Maren Ade, 2016). Joins a handful of other good ones from 2016 in the way it snakes unpredictably through a truly original scenario that comes to seem kinda epic. A basically sober movie that has many funny moments. (full review 2/10)

The Space Between Us (Peter Chelsom, 2017). Teen love, tested by the distance between Mars to Earth. But not for long. Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson are the teenagers, with Gary Oldman trying once again to play a normal person. (full review 2/3)
