A movie movie that gets better as it goes along: “Mindhorn”

leave a comment »

Netflix has a new comedy up, a Netflix Original: Mindhorn. It’s a movie movie (a movie about making a movie—in effect, a backstage story), though in this case the plot is driven not by a movie but by a 1980s TV series of the “bionic human” genre. Mindhorn is about some of the cast today and also includes a fan. The protagonist of Mindhorn is the actor who played the hero of the series who is now a has-been scrambling for acting roles.

The opening is good (especially the cameo with Kenneth Branagh as himself), but my expectations were low. The movie surprised me, though, by getting better and better as it went along. Satisfying.
