Joker (2019). Missed it in the theaters. Streamed a short sample. Will catch it after Jan 7 when I buy the DVD. Pretty unrelenting so far. Taxi Driver without Cybill and Jodie to compensate.

Little Women (2019)

Splendid. Loved it. Now I must read the book.

Two New Yorker reviews helped explain for me what director Greta Gerwig was up to.
