Movie Diary 12/21/2021

Spencer (Pablo Larrain, 2021). A weekend in the life of Diana (Kristen Stewart), imagined by screenwriter Steven Knight, intriguingly shaped by Larrain’s unsparing hand. Better in moments than overall. Thanks to Stewart’s performance, Claire Mathon’s cinematography, and Jonny Greenwood’s music, a little world is created, a world dedicated to suffocating our heroine. The ending is an issue, though.
