Actor Jesse Eisenberg has acted in more than forty movies in the last twenty years. But now he’s written and directed a feature film for the very first time. It’s called WHEN YOU FINISH SAVING THE WORLD and it disappeared from local theaters after just one week. Unfortunately, it’s clearly the work of a well intentioned filmmaker who doesn’t know yet how to write a good script or direct an engaging film. But as an actor, I really admire Eisenberg’s talent. He’s currently playing one of four main characters in FLEISHMAN IS IN TROUBLE, a great 8 episode streaming series that originated on FX but is now streaming on Hulu. The show stars Eisenberg, Claire Danes, Lizzy Caplan and Adam Brody. FLEISHMAN IS IN TROUBLE is an astonishingly honest look at the struggles of middle age people who start questioning everything they’ve done in their lives. It’s the best streaming series I’ve seen in a year. (HULU)

Many of the most critically acclaimed movies in 2022 were box office failures and didn’t last more than a week or two in theaters. But most of these overlooked films are streaming now. One of those excellent films is EMILY THE CRIMINAL, starring Aubrey Plaza. Plaza is best known for her six years playing a comic character the TV series, PARKS AND RECREATION. But for the past seven years she’s shown she has serious acting chops. In EMILY THE CRIMINAL, she plays a tough but vulnerable young woman whose conviction on an assault charge keeps her from getting a decent paying job. Emily is saddled with 60,000 dollars of student and she’s desperate. She works at such a low paying food delivery job that she can barely cover the interest payments on her loans. But a friend shows her how she can get involved in a credit card buying scam and she enters the criminal world. The dark story develops in surprising ways and eventually comes to a shocking climax. EMILY THE CRIMINAL does not excuse criminality, but it does explain how society can inadvertently turn desperate people into criminals. (Netflix)
