    Her: 9/10. My favorite movie of the year. Lots of talk about what this one is actually saying, but I thought the central conceit was that no matter how we try to isolate ourselves with devices, we can't escape humanity and its attendant pain/messiness. Really inventive.

    The Wolf of Wall Street: 6/10. It gets to 5 simply on craft and on the performances (save Jonah Hill - I found his character one-note.) A lot of people are criticizing this movie for glorifying the excesses of the lead character, but I think that was kind of the point. We're supposed to envy him in the beginning, judge him in the middle, and find ourselves in him in the end and that great last scene. What I will agree with the critics on is that the movie could have used better pacing and could have lost 20 minutes or so of fat.

    American Hustle: 8/10. It was just so much FUN. Entertaining performances and a twisty, funny story that's sort of true. People who don't like this movie call it a "mess" narratively, but I think it was like a live action cartoon, and I'm going to easily forgive things like that in a movie this broad and watchable.

    Ushpizin: 8/10

    All in Hebrew with English subtitles. Very interesting, and quite funny.

    American Hustle

    One of the best American movies this year. Done in beautiful impeccable American style. Somewhat reminiscent of the English TV series Hustle, in that both had wonderful style: one British and one American.
