I went to see Hugo, and frankly I didn't care for it much. Scorsese has gotten sentimental in his old age. Or, maybe I'm turning into a Grinch.

Did anyone else find Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy as confusing as I did? So many flashbacks, most of which were not clearly flashbacks, just one scene following another without any differention between past and present. Great production, very slick...and perfect acting. (But something of Barbara's spoiler at work here too.) For all the things it had going for it, it wasn't a very satisfying movie.
