Peppermint Candy, Remains of the Day

good: Peppermint Candy (because I also liked the writer/director’s decade-later Poetry, primitive, low budget, unexceptionally acted, yet effective)

ok: Remains of the Day (because I noticed it’s a novel by Kazuo Ishiguro, who is great. a show piece for Anthony Hopkins. smart, simple story. fine, but overrated and overly long.)
