100-word Film Review: Jupiter Ascending

If I told you I’d had a dream about shirtless Channing Tatum, a hoard of obedient bees and an android that looked like Ronan Farrow, you’d be interested.

This is precisely why the meandering masterpiece, “Jupiter Ascending” must be watched.

I can’t classify what it adds up to: fantasy, SciFi, romance, political drama … but the ideas are glorious in their bold abstract — like a Pollock.
Messy, to be sure, but moving pictures were never meant to be still lifes.
