Three sentence movie reviews: Darkest Hour
With the opening scenes, I steeled myself for yet another film of an insufferable man causing everyone to rotate around him. Thankfully, an underutilized Kristin Scott Thomas set him straight and we could proceed with the events leading up to the evacuation at Dunkirk.* I found the scene in the subway charming, and also annoying as it seemed very much a manufactured-for-the-narrative moment.
Where watched: Living Room Theater, who has changed their menu for the worse. I had a very sub-par sandwich, and I used to really enjoy their sandwiches.
*This would make a nice double feature with Christopher Nolon’s Dunkirk, also released in 2017.

I was also pleasantly surprised by this movie, having had slightly similar expectations. Agreed about KST. Saw this with my B&D rents so that added an interesting layer of discussion to the mix.
