    Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

    While I am second to no one (or almost no one) in my hatred of the first film, I was pleasantly stunned by how much fun this one was. https://catholiccinephile.wordpress.com/2018/07/24/mamma-mia-here-we-go-again/

    Florence Foster Jenkins

    We really don't have a thread for this? I saw it tonight, and my first thoughts are: Streep will unquestionably get an Oscar nomination for this, and at the rate this year is going, I might say she should win it for her vocal acrobatics alone. I have no idea how she sang so terribly so well - actually hitting some of the correct pitches, selectively missing others, while producing a consistently, appallingly ugly sound. And there's one scene when Florence dreams that she's singing perfectly, and Streep shows what a gorgeous soprano she developed for the film, which really came as a surprise to me, considering her phenomenal turn as the Witch in Into the Woods, a role which is a low alto. Who was it who said, "a great movie is three great scenes and no bad ones?" That basically describes this. I'm not sure yet how well the film handles the whole concept of good performances/honest appraisals/purpose of art/does art need to be good or just passionate and heartfelt. My first instinct is to say it raises the questions without taking a side beyond clearly saying that spiteful, belittling reviews are cruel and unappreciative of the emotional value of a bad performance, even if such reviews are honest.

    The Wrap: Can't say I ever expected to see those 3 names in the same sentence.
