Carey Mulligan and Michael Fassbender are obviously fine, gifted, thoughtful and certainly insightful artists….two youngish people in theh absolute fullness of their lives. But these Variety encounters are nonetheles vapid. Because they’ve been instructed (and have gone along with the instruction) to keep it fleet and zippy and mutually flattering and whatnot, and if you miss one of these conversations you’re fine. If you’ve seen their respective award-season films (Maestro and The Killer), you’ve got what you need. They’re both perfect.
