    Topsy-Turvy

    ★★★★★

    Easily the greatest movie about the theatre ever made.  

    Few movies give me more joy than this one.

  • Me and Orson Welles

    Me and Orson Welles

    ★★★½

    There is so much this movie gets right about Welles, the Mercury, Shakespeare in performance, the era... and McKay is astonishing as Orson... Linklater directs it beautifully, the recreation of the company's legendary 'Julius Caesar' performance is thrilling...

    ... so WHY OH WHY couldn't this have been a 'Topsy-Turvy'-esque look at the Mercury and its players instead of spending the majority of its running time on Zac Efron's fictional, utterly boring main character and his dullsville, half-baked coming of age story? ARGH!

    WHY????
