Certain Women (2016) – Movie Review
Three independent stories, told with a style so sober that it sometimes feels cold.
The Edge of Seventeen (2016) – Movie Review
A fantastic portrayal of an all-too-real teenage girl, as sharp as it is endearing.
Come As You Are (2020) – Movie Review
A cheeky, unabashed sex comedy whose message of inclusiveness is undermined by its decision to cast only able-bodied leads in disabled roles.
Transit (2019) – Movie Review
Transit builds a tense fraught atmosphere, although it feels like a halfway adaptation, trying to modernize its story without committing to it.
Bacurau (2020) – Movie Review
Bacurau starts as an intriging mishmash of genres and styles, but devolves into empty action and noise.
Monos (2020) – Movie Review
Monos is a visually arresting, if nihilistic, vision of humanity untethered.
The Art of Self-Defense (2019) – Movie Review
As deadly as it is deadpan, The Art of Self-Defense is a wild ride.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) – Movie Review
Marielle Heller’s ode to kindness, a touching tribute to our better nature.
The Assistant (2020) – Movie Review
The Assistant is a quiet, discreet film that speaks heavy truths not with bold exclamations but with clear-eyed serenity. It is worth listening to, and pondering the things we take for granted even in our daily work.
