This is it: this is a movie that has it all. BlacKkKlansman is funny, entertaining, and stylish, but also angry, poignant, and righteous. It is an accomplishment in cinematic form, and also in content.
If Netflix wants to kick off a genre where two brilliant comic actors play parent and child on location, they can count me in.
Under the Silver Lake, which I can only describe as slacker noir, is equal parts weird, funny, poignant, absurd, pleased with itself, visually arresting, engrossing, meandering, saturated…
Game Night is the funniest film to come out this year (would be even if there was more competition). It’s funny because it’s extremely clever, but it’s also funny because it’s not afraid to be silly.
Much like Cervantes’ book itself, this movie contains many stand-alone episodes, as the characters encounter various damsels in distress, evil sorcerers, or nefarious knights, with the twist of hopping between levels of narrative every few minutes. Running north of the two hour mark, the film is long, and feels longer still.
