OVER­RATED

‘In­side Out’: Pixar’s rep­u­ta­tion for sto­ry­telling is un­matched among film stu­dios, much less other an­i­ma­tion houses. And while its am­bi­tion is in­tact, some­thing still felt off as its latest film pro­gressed, as if the au­dac­ity of build­ing an ab­stract world around emo­tions and mem­o­ries over­shad­owed a strangely ten­sion­less story. Though the film’s core mes­sage res­onates, maybe it says more about mod­ern life that a film dar­ing to con­sider sad­ness part of life is hailed as rev­o­lu­tion­ary.

Colin Far­rell on ‘True De­tec­tive’: The jury may be out on the new sea­son of HBO’s crime and ex­ces­sive pun­ish­ment bleak-a-thon as it leaves be­hind the sur­re­al­ist camp of Matthew McConaughey, but it’s dis­ap­point­ing to see this ac­tor so mis­used. Glow­er­ing be­hind a ’70s mus­tache, Far­rell shows none of the charm of his best roles in “In Bruges,” “Seven Psy­chopaths” or even “Fright Night.” Just imag­ine this show’s heavy brood­ing cut with a trace of hu­mor.
