Consensus Comparison: Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Son of Saul December 19, 2015

Like last time, there’s no Film of the Week this week. The final volume of Arabian Nights screens through this coming Thursday at the Film Society of Lincoln Center and then will hopefully be made available on VOD soon. I doubt it’s going to travel around the U.S. much, since I hear tell screenings have been almost completely empty.
