Adderall Diaries starring James Franco, Christian Slater, Amber Heard and Ed Harris. Timothee Chalamet has a small role playing Franco's character as a teenager. Here's the description on the package: A struggling writer becomes dangerously involved in a high-profile murder case in this true-crime thriller. James Franco plays an author who's first book is about his childhood and the abuse that he endured by his father. It became a bestseller and while promoting it at an author event and describing how his father had been dead for a while, a man stands up at the back of the room and begins shouting that the book is all lies. It's Franco's character's father, who is played by Ed Harris and is not dead. Harris meets up with Franco during the course of the movie to give his version of what happened and why. Very well acted. Ed Harris looks terrible in this movie, haggard and almost emaciated. I don't know if he lost a lot of weight for this role.

Uncut Gems. Got to 36 minutes of it and wondered why we kept with the last 26 of those. We didn't like the characters, couldn't have cared less what happened to them. The dialogue was so dense as to be incomprehensible at times, and we finally gave up.

We did some more browsing and ended up with...

Ford v. Ferrari. We really enjoyed this. The characters, with some being somewhat stereotypical, were still present with depth and feeling. It was a very interesting story, interesting dynamics. And its 2 hours and 32 minutes went by quite nicely, compared with the three relative days consumed by the 36 minutes of the prior offering.

Good, fun, interesting flick.
