Weekly Recap: Empire of Light, The Whale, Emancipation & More!

 
It's a big week for prestige and art house cinema (the last week before the juggernaut that is Avatar comes storming in), but it's a shame these aren't better entries. Empire of Light is a big miss for Sam Mendes, The Whale has moments of greatness, and Emancipation puts its focus on the wrong elements. I have reviews for all of those and others from recent weeks. Plus, we have new podcast episodes covering Devotion and Bones and AllSo, feel free to check out all these reviews, podcasts, lists, trailers, and other fun. Enjoy, stay safe out there, and thanks for reading!
