Leonardo DiCaprio: Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood (Sony Pictures)

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald, and etc.

Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood. “DiCaprio and Pitt own the picture. Their different styles — DiCaprio coiled, Pitt hanging loose — go directly to how they create these two bros who need each other. Neither actor has ever been better.”

Sword of Trust. “Mel is sardonic, pragmatic and just barely tolerating all this. The role fits like a glove for the comedian (and celebrated podcast host) Marc Maron, who brings a splendidly rumpled humanity to his role.”

Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love. “There’s something powerful here about certain kinds of 1960s dreams and realities, and how emotional bonds can survive the decades.”

For the Scarecrow Video blog, I contribute a Seasoned Ticket post recalling a previous Leonard Cohen documentary, 2005’s fine Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man, which I begin with a rash speculation about the greatest song ever written. Read that here.
