Captain Marvel ★★★

It’s not at all what you would expect from Boden and Fleck, who are best known for character-driven indies like Half Nelson and Sugar that probe deep into the psyches of their heroes. In Captain Marvel, despite a scene where aliens literally probe deep into the psyche of their hero, they never quite licked the problem of a lead character who doesn’t know who she is until the film’s final act.
