Rectify - Some viewers call this six-episode TV series slow and laborious. Those of us who relish a riveting, killer-paced, cerebral adventure are applauding in deafening decibels. "More. More." Aden Young's performance is magnetic, catatonic, charismatic, enigmatic, mesmeric, laconic, and hypnotic.
Quartet - For anyone who assumes that this a movie about old farts or for old farts, you are mistaken. It is a movie about young-at-heart-farts who have been around longer and who can now best express the cartwheels of their youth with their faces - not their limbs.
Oz, The Great and Powerful - Scamming-flimflamming circus magician Oscar - nicknamed Oz - flees the carnival life via a tornado to the Land of Oz. The film is a whimsical fairytale that ends blissfully when the illusionist transforms himself and delivers the Land of Oz from the talons of two wicked witches.
Lincoln - Combat litters the screenplay. Not just the battle of the Union versus the Confederacy or emancipation versus slavery. Northerners and Southerners had their own internal skirmishes. And then there were the political wars inside the White House and domestic wars inside the Lincoln marriage. Add to these the inner conflicts that agonized every conscientious person from the period.
