A Week In Film #566: One in one out

Molly’s Game title screen
Molly’s Game
Slowish, classy drama about an ex-athlete-turned-high-stakes-poker host (Jessica Chastain) caught between a rock and a hard place when the Feds come a-knockin’. Idris Elba does his weary face a lot as the lawyer who reluctantly defends her; Michael Cera excels as the asshole Hollywood actor who quickly turns against her (definitely not based on Tobey Maguire). Aaron Sorkin directs from Aaron Sorkin’s script, so definitely not without its faults.

Psycho title screen
Still a stone cold classic, particularly all the stuff up to, you know, that scene.
