Movie Diary 8/7/2019

The Kitchen (Andrea Berloff, 2019). Crime fantasy, from a graphic novel, about wives going into their imprisoned husbands’ crooked business. Some intriguing casting helps at first (Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss), but in various fundamental ways this movie doesn’t really know what it’s doing. Would like to know more about a criminal matriarch in this corner of the world (Hell’s Kitchen, late 1970s), however, especially given Margo Martindale’s presence in the role. (full review 8/9)
