Movie Diary 2/19/2020

Greed (Michael Winterbottom, 2019). Satire that focuses on a buccaneer billionaire (Steve Coogan), with lots of Big Short-style explainers about how the system is broken. There’s a good role for the sly British comedian-pundit David Mitchell, and some nice asides, although on the whole it needs to be funnier. (full review 3/5)

Onward (Dan Scanlon, 2020). The new Pixar, and an original. A decidedly odd story and some off-putting character design. Nice ending, but you expect that from Pixar. (full review 3/5)
