Birdman, Nightcrawler, Theory

Dementia has been sick (though today is her birthday, and she is mostly recovered), so I saw some movies on my own, played some Ingress, and then dragged her to one movie in my company.

"Birdman" is has an excellent cast who perform well-written dialog brilliantly. The cinematography is claustrophobic, but deliberately so. I am certain that the triple-hat writer-producer-director is content with every frame of this movie, and I strongly suspect that he also believes he said something meaningful. He is wrong on that point. Once again, I am glad I saw this movie, but am not inclined to recommend it to anyone.

"Nightcrawler" is a well made creepy movie whose main message seems to be that TV news production is a great career path for sociopaths. This is not a hard message to accept.

"The Theory of Everything" is an excellent Stephen Hawking biopic. The story is often painful, but that is reality's fault. We enjoyed this one a great deal.
