    Head Count

    ★★★½

    Horror movies usually train us to await something outside the frame to enter it, either through the motion of someone (or something) or the camera. Head Count trains us to pay attention to who and, possibly, what exist in the frame—more specifically, who or, probably, what shouldn't be there.

    Framing John DeLorean

    ★★★

    There's a primary assertion in Framing John DeLorean: The story of John DeLorean, an automobile executive who became a car entrepreneur and an almost-definite criminal, would make for a good, maybe even great, movie. For a couple of decades, ideas and screenplays for such a movie have been going around Hollywood, with none of them actually being made. Here's kind of the first, in that it's a documentary with a decent number of dramatic recreations featuring a recognizable cast of actors.

    Last Ounce of Courage

    ½

    This is the movie equivalent of a spoiled child having a temper tantrum, stomping around the room, and, through the whole thing, repeatedly falling down. It would be easy to be annoyed with the movie if it weren't so unaware of how damn funny its display of pointless outrage is.

    Mortdecai

    Mortdecai is the stuff that inspires stipulations in wills, as in, "Have some basic decency on the event of my passing, and don't let people bring up that one movie." On the more positive side of things, it's also one of those movies that will likely be a, if not the, low point for everyone involved, which theoretically means that everyone here only has better things to look forward to in the future of their careers. Even so, this one is going to sting.
