    ★★★★½

    Not a review: I am way too attracted to Bill Murray in this (and many other things).

    Cœur fidèle

    ★★★½

    Silent French seaport melodrama (think a bare-boned Fanny).

    Beautiful camera work (cutting cuts and close-ups, keep an eye out for kaleidoscope effect), even more beautiful eye work (Gina Manès -- WOW).

    ★★★★

    Stomping, striding Judy Davis. Sickly, vampire-sounding Hugh. Hot-tempered Mandy Patinkin. Doddering Emma Thompson. Slickly seductive Bernadette Peters. All in 19th century garb, and all-in-all accurate-ish, I think? What more could you possibly want out of a period piece?

    ★★★

    There's something(s) missing, but I really enjoyed it and its oscillations between finesse and unfussiness. But I also did not hate Pitt's perfume ad and believe anything Marion says while her eyes are open, so... It's a solid VOD watch on own or with date.
