Due to the mourning of my father’s death, I neither attended any movie screenings, nor will I review movies, this week. However, many of my reviews from last week are of movies that will only debut around the rest of the country, this week. I will try to resume my regular reviews, next week.
FYI, in the normal Jewish mourning process, I would not see movies for 11 months, but this is part of my profession, so it is a different situation and I have a dispensation. The idea is that, in mourning, we are not supposed to enjoy ourselves at things like movies. (I don’t enjoy movies too much anyway. Mostly, going to so many I don’t like is a chore and a waste of life I’ll never get back.)
