Bipolar disorder diversions: New and Notable films

“Trumbo” with Bryan Cranston in November. Seems to be about a writer someone in Hollywood who was blacklisted in the McArthy (sp?) anticommunist witch hunt but still managed to work under cover..maybe.

“Steve Jobs.” (founder of Apple..you know) Michael Fassbender is an incredible actor. Seth Rogen plays his co founder and he says to Steve, “Your products are better than you are.” Jobs responds, “That’s the idea.”

“Bridge of Spies” Tom Hanks. Steven Speilberg. The Cold War? Not sure.

“Sicario” it’s a very interesting take on anticartel black ops designed to upset the system and hierarchy of the Mexican cartels. It’s very tense, violent, lots of horrifying carnage in Ciudad Juarez on Texas border. Underground tunnels, absolute deniability. Benicio Del Toro is a shadowy character that helps the US Cia-FBI joint venture with his knowledge of the whole deal. It’s obvious he was once a Cartel guy and paid for it dearly.

Labyrinth of Lies  Looks to be a German film or at least about Germans after WWII

Mississipi Grind (did you see Bloodline? The ne’r do well druggie Ben Mendelson takes a star turn here.) Ben Mendelson and Ryan Reynolds are down and out gamblers traveling cross country for a big score.

Ashby….know nothing except it’s a Mickey Roarke Film

99 Homes is a downer because all these people are being kicked out of their homes but it fills in the information gaps about all those horrible, variable rate mortages and bad loans given to people who could not afford them. It’s based in Florida and stars a guy from BoardWalk Empire, Michael Shannon.

Our Brand is Chaos: Sandra Bullock as a campaign manager in a South American Country, working for a guy who has no chance at winning the election

Listen to Me Marlon  A documentary and it looks like Showtime is going to broadcast it soon.

Truth   Robert Redford plays Dan Rather.

Carol  Cate Blanchette and Rooney Mara (Girl Dragon Tattoo) Older lady falls in love with shopgirl.
