Slick, trippy indie sci-fi that asks a lot of questions, before tripping a bit too far.

Action or Drama?

Not sure which of these two films to watch this weekend? I recommend the English langauge version. Not a burning skyscraper or rad dad hero in sight.

American Hustle

Muddled, derivative dressing up nonsense. Missing the touch of Scorcese, but rescued by De Niro.
