10 Cloverfield Lane
First screened in March 2016
Director: Dan Trachtenberg. Cast: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman, John Gallagher Jr., Suzanne Cryer, Douglas M. Griffin. Screenplay: Josh Campbell & Matthew Stuecken and Damien Chazelle.

Twitter Capsule: I finished watching the way I complete in-flight crosswords. Same mix of sport and tedium. Same modest payoff.

VOR:   Intimacy and economy of construction stand out, particularly in relation to where the movie goes and the questions it raises. I wasn't as impressed as some, but it merits a peek.
