Last weekend, spouse and I went to see "Mr. Holmes," the new Ian McKellen movie. First impressions: 1) it was excellently done. Excellent acting, scripting, and directing. 2) It was hard to watch in spots, as my mom (who is just before turning 80) is having serious memory issues--Holmes' similar issues struck rather close to home. 3) Did I mention the direction was excellent? I may be reading more into it than the creator(s) intended, but it seemed to me to be a very tightly crafted film, with many small and subtle elements combining to give greater emotional weight and resonance to the larger themes. I'll try to write more about that later. For now, highly recommended.
