Two award contenders and one Christ complex hit the cinemas this week with "Just Mercy" "1917" and "Three Christs."
While the subject matter of the based on a true story "Just Mercy" is important and relevant, the film relies on it a bit too much to make the audience care. Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Brie Larson, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Tim Blake Nelson, Rob Morgan, and Darrell Britt-Gibson star.
"1917" is a finely executed war film, but nothing new. I'd prefer innovation over technical execution any day. Dean-Charles Chapman, George MacKay, Richard Madden, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andrew Scott, Colin Firth, and Mark Strong star.
Three Christs" suffers from a Christ complex, and is a patronizing and ultimately pointless experiment that follows three schizophrenic patients and the doctor that treats them. Richard Gere, Peter Dinklage, Walton Goggins, Bradley Whitford, and Julianna Margulies star.
