Friday Movies:


Clint Eastwood’s Changeling turns out to be a lot more interesting than the trailer. The trailer reels off the film’s relatively few moments of cliché dismay — Angelina Jolie gets firehosed by a sadistic matron! John Malkovich looks evil! — with a trite glibness that makes you wonder if Mr Eastwood has gone soft. Well, he hasn’t.

    I went for the set design and cinematography, which were manifestly good in the trailer. I trusted that Mr. Eastwood would not let us down TOO much and was thrilled to find a complex and nuanced film which yet managed to go straight to the point without hitting one over the head.
