High Flying Bird

9

A thought-provoking, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it heist-like sports drama, High Flying Bird is Steven Soderbergh’s version of Ballers and Moneyball, and I loved almost every minute of it.

It may not be great art or particularly thought-provoking, but what Adam McKay’s Vice does have going for it is that even though it can be read as a superficial tonal mess, it is a wildly entertaining film.

Poster for Arctic

Arctic

9

A riveting story of survival, and an outstanding actor’s vehicle for Mads Mikkelsen who gives a remarkable, tortured, and quietly moving performance in this lone survivor film that will draw comparisons to films like 127 Hours and The Revenant.

A strange film that I had a lot of fun with. Though it does seem like Gilroy didn’t exactly know whether he wanted to make a smart and cutting film about the art world or a fun horror film about that world, the end result is undeniably watchable even if it isn’t quite as effective or thought-provoking as I wanted it to be.

Burning

10

A meditation on class struggle and youthful frustration and loneliness in the form of a mystery film.

Poster for The Favourite

The Favourite

This might be his best work yet thanks in some part to a terrific screenplay that juggles multiple story angles and tones while still holding its riveting narrative core — a power struggle disguised as a love triangle.

Poster for Polar

Polar

5

A hyper-stylized and immature John Wick-esque action vehicle with obnoxious, head-ache inducing editing, pornographic scenes, and a wasted Mads Mikkelsen performance.

Poster for Cold War

Cold War

9

A film that will chill the hearts of its viewers due to the tragic and heartbreakingly rough journey of love these hapless lovers endure over the course of the film’s barely 90 minute runtime.

Shyamalan is ultimately unable to mix and match the best of both worlds from Unbreakable and Split.

Poster for FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened

FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened

8

I was shaking my head in disbelief (and swearing in disbelief, by the way) from start to finish of this jaw-dropping and brilliantly paced documentary with fascinating access to the chaos of the failed festival.

Poster for IO

IO‘s complete predictability and lack of momentum stop it from becoming as memorable or worthwhile as its themes suggested it would be.

Before the Frost

8

An impressive Danish period drama that is buoyed up by an engrossing and deeply felt performance from Danish screen legend Jesper Christensen.

The Last Laugh

5

As a comedy, it is very stale.

Poster for Brexit: The Uncivil War

Brexit: The Uncivil War

Benedict Cumberbatch is very engaging here, and, just like the film got lost in its subject, it is very easy to be enthralled by Cumberbatch’s inspired energy.

Poster for Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns

8

Because it is a positively intoxicating nostalgic film experience, but, it isn’t perfect, and, perhaps by design, I suspect that the film only really works if you have a previous relationship with the original film.

Poster for Lionheart

Lionheart

5

Has its heartwarming moments wherein the importance of family is emphasized, but her film mishandles some crucial moments of comedy and drama, and Lionheart is largely much too predictable.

Poster for Destroyer

Destroyer

With a tighter script Destroyer could’ve been a true cult-favorite, but the overwrought script that Kusama works with here overwhelms the film.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

7

Bandersnatch isn’t as rewarding as I hoped it would be, but it is a compelling experience, at least, on your first few viewings or playthroughs.

Poster for Roma

Roma

10

A patient but deeply moving and human story in the context of something much larger and more historic.

Poster for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

10

The most stylish superhero film of the year, but it is also a film that carries a worthwhile message about the importance of the everyman that gets right to the heart of the web-slinger we all love.

Poster for Aquaman

Aquaman

7

An overwhelming cinematic full-course dinner that’ll make you full, even if it does somewhat feel like Wan and the writers mashed up two Aquaman movies and turned them into one.

Poster for Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle

6

An adequate but unspectacular alternative to the extraordinary and kid-friendly The Jungle Book that Jon Favreau made for Disney in 2016.

Poster for The House That Jack Built

The House That Jack Built

8

It is Lars Von Trier’s own version of American Psycho complete with self-importance, a loony but brilliant central performance, and fascinating introspection.

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born

9

Although I think the film is uneven and has character problems, I still highly recommend A Star is Born, which, all things considered, is an irresistible, audience-pleasing directorial debut for Bradley Cooper.
