Movie Diary 12/10/2019

Ford v Ferrari (James Mangold, 2019). High-tech yet old-fashioned, with a tendency to state too much with words. The corn remains high throughout. Christian Bale gives an amusing physical performance, and the thing gets a nice boost from the excellent supporting cast: Tracy Letts, Ray McKinnon, Catriona Balfe, et al.

Knives Out (Rian Johnson, 2019). Reasonably fun, with some structural surprises – and yet somehow not as fun as it should be, given the mix of ingredients.
