Babylon (out Jan 19) is a no-expense-spared epic about the creation of Hollywood in the late 1920s. It offers lengthy set pieces (like the making of an early "talkie") which are interesting and humorous. I wasn't as convinced by the character development which, for a 3-hour movie, is limited. It's also a little preachy in places. You'll remember the ending! Grade: B.
