I Wrote These Things: Week Ending 11/12

Well, it was a bit of a week, huh? In doing our customary round-up of the weekend's new movies, I wrote probably the closest I'll come to anything personal about the election - basically, that we have to burrow into art to take our mind off a scary world. So here's that.
