Micro movie reviews

I have been forgetting to post these.

Mr. Holmes: Sherlock Holmes, in his 90s and long retired to bee-keeping in the country, tries to remember his last case (told in flashbacks), which he hadn't solved. Ian McKellen does a masterful job as the title character. A fine film.

Irrational Man: Woody Allen's latest. A burnt out philosophy professor, involved with one of his colleagues, as well as one of his students, finds a reason to live. There are a few holes in the plot, which is set in a small college town, where all the students have perfect complexions. The film is fair, far from Allen's best.
