Coming off "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," this is Brad Pitt's year. But his skillful turn in director James Gray's introspective space funk, about an astronaut shufflin' off to Neptune to save Earth from cosmic-ray surges, turns into an "Apocalypse Now" riff on a sad song about why dad never calls, he doesn't write...
