Boy Erased


Despite these reservations, it is a well-made, important, and engaging film that shines some light in a very dark place.

Poster for Three Identical Strangers

Three Identical Strangers


While the film could have achieved more if it knew what it wanted to achieve, it does raise intriguing questions about what shapes our personality.

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born


It’s the performances and music that leave their mark. The film has things to say about the misery of addiction and it teases out high-art music against pop pulp.

Poster for First Man

First Man


The combination of brilliant acting, stunning set design, excellent cinematography, and most important, a measured approach to examining human frailty, makes this a standout production.

Poster for Custody



If it were possible to plot the tension curve of this film, it would start just off the floor then work its way through the roof.

Poster for The Seagull

The Seagull


It reads equally as tragedy, romance, and comedy of manners, but falls away as Russian period drama.

It orchestrates elements of drama, romance, and crime thriller with continually rising tension notes played like a grand piano...

The Insult


With a more subtle directorial touch, the film could have shown it’s message instead of shouting it.

Stunning photography and a well selected musical score cannot alone carry the film.

Summer 1993


The cinematography and settings are an obvious source of visual and emotional pleasure, but it is at a deeper level that this film delivers its greater impact.

Poster for The Breaker Upperers

The Breaker Upperers


With a storyline that progressively thins out, we are left with puerile gags and weak dialogue that struggles to sustain the film for 90 minutes.

Falls somewhere between several genres into a space that feels like male melodrama.
