Two films to see NOW

I’ve been traveling recently, so I’ve had to put movie watching and reviewing on hold, but I did find time recently to see two excellent films: Room (3 3/4 stars on my 0-5 scale), a unique and powerful examination of a family in crisis, and Bridge of Spies (4 1/4 stars). Arguably the best film of the year so far, the latter features a great story told rather conventionally but still brilliantly. It’s a fine example of a director (Spielberg) at the top of his craft, and although the film doesn’t hold many surprises, it’s beautiful to watch Spielberg’s technique, not to mention the performances.
