Mixed Nuts by Kyle Vernier

As I watched the opening and saw all of the great people in this movie I said to my wife, "how have we never heard of this"? As the credits rolled the answer was clear, it just isn't good.

Downsizing by Kyle Vernier

Alex Payne has directed two truly great movies; Election, which will remain in my top 5 movies of all time forever, and Nebraska, which is a beautiful, deep movie that I loved. Downsizing, while good, is neither of those movies. I think if this movie had come out in The Pleasantville, Truman Show era it would have been heaped with praise. It is a little slow moving and the message gets a little muddled.
