    Cry Macho

    ★★★½

    Frankly I could watch two hours of 91-year-old Clint Eastwood making homemade tortillas.

    Honestly, though—much more lovely than I as expecting. Plaintive filmmaking for the sake of simply being plaintive. Eastwood isn’t begging for a complex dissection or brain-breaking analysis, and that’s mighty refreshing. Sometimes the adventure really is that straightforward. Sometimes the revelation really is that gentle. Sometimes the ruminating really is that graceful.

    ★★★

    So much to like about THE NOWHERE INN, a Russian nesting doll of metatextuality traversing an increasingly surreal landscape. Gets at the awkwardness of artifice, so of course trying to make sense of its later sequences is an awkward endeavor.
