The Invisible Man

Directed by Leigh Whannell; starring Elisabeth Moss; rated R

Does anyone give better struggle face than Elisabeth Moss? The actress expertly suffers her way through Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, and she once again puts her uncannily expressive talents to use in The Invisible Man. As the film opens, it’s the middle of the night and Cecilia (Moss) is lying next to her lover in a sleek but eerily remote mansion. She gently moves his hand off of her so as not to awaken him. Is she merely being considerate? It soon becomes clear that she’s not just getting up for a bathroom run—— she’s escaping the house and has been planning it for a while. An overnight bag is already packed and at the ready, she knows the codes to all the security cameras, and she’s even drugged her boyfriend, Adrian (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), with diazepam. This scene perfectly sets up the tone of the film as she tiptoes around the mansion, trying to not make any noise, casting furtive glances at the one video feed of Adrian asleep in his bed. We feel the creeping tension and dread with each step.

JOHNNY LIGHTNING DOES REAL MUSCLE IN MINIATURE

I had plans well underway for the big “Bargain Muscle Cars” feature story in this issue (p18) when I saw this lineup for the new Muscle Cars USA 2020 Release 3 from JL. I already knew I would be talking about the Dodge Dart GTS and AMC Rebel Machine, so I figured I’d just plunder those two cars from this set for that story and be all set. But then my conscience kicked in. Both because the other four cars in the set deserve their moment in the sun, and because they are all based on actual cars from the 2019 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show it just makes sense to talk about them together.
