Berlinale opening film Django received a lukewarm response according to press room feedback. Clichéd, typical, and wooden Nazi characters is how the biography feature on jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt has been described. Judging by the reactions I think I will pass.
The Dinner with Richard Gere and Laura Linney. Director Oren Moverman’s film based on the Herman Koch novel just finished the press screening. Was it any good? I am waiting for the instant reviews. The applause before the Q&A was less than enthusiastic. Attention was turned to politics with responses on the state of the US Executive Branch, Gere gave a blistering rebuke of Mr. Trump. Mr. Gere and Ms. Linney noted The Dinner is there third collaboration.
