Netflixin': Changeling

Changeling turned out to be a much better movie than I expected. Based on a strange true story, Eastwood directs the hell out of this, both nailing the period elements and taking what could have been a staid documentary and turning it into a gripping and somewhat eerie story with some terrible turns. (Side note: I am a big fan of Eastwood's recurring theme of 'the good ol' days weren't really that good. At all.') Jolie once again proves she can act, if given a good part. And I was pleasantly surprised by some of the supporting cast. Highly recommended. (And save time for the 'making of' special feature.)
