I saw about an hour and 50 minutes of the Robert Zemeckis film, Flight (2012), before the projector’s audio went down and the theater crew was unable to fix it.  It’s okay, though; by that time I was tired of the movie anyway.  It’s yet another film about a serious alcoholic (this time a pilot) and it’s a bit draggy.  Its most powerful and suspenseful shot-series comes rather early, after which the movie is often good but not that good.  It’s good in the sense of not being utterly routine—and there is superb acting aplenty.  Denzel Washington is masterly as the pilot.

Another thing:  Parents, pay attention to the R rating.
