Poster for Aquaman



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


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


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


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.

Poster for Widows



A twisty and challenging ensemble film heist drama, which may just be director Steve McQueen’s most accessible feature film yet.

Poster for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald


The beasts are fantastic and Hogwarts still feels like home, but, with that, I’ve run out of positive things to say about this film. It genuinely feels like multiple different films crammed into one unengaging final product.

Poster for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs


A well-designed period-specific anthology film that manages to be both morbid and hysterically funny.

Poster for Suspiria



Guadagnino’s passion project is an art house film that is fascinated by themes that make it a much more complicated, convoluted, but, honestly, interesting film.

Poster for Overlord



A no-holds-barred Wolfensteinesque action-horror war film that is inhabited by characters whose designs are as thin as cardboard.

Poster for The Other Side of the Wind

The Other Side of the Wind


We will never know if this final product is exactly how Welles intended it to be, but I see the method in the sometimes maddening film. The Other Side of the Wind is a diamond in the rough.

Poster for Shirkers



A visually interesting, deeply personal and unique documentary.

Poster for Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody


Although there are plenty of problems with the film itself, Rami Malek’s extraordinary performance makes this a film you absolutely should see...

Poster for The Haunting of Hill House

The Haunting of Hill House


The Haunting of Hill House‘s beautiful blend of scares, sadness, and catharsis is the best horror entertainment that I’ve seen this year, even though the ending wasn’t quite as perfect for me as I had hoped it would be.

Poster for First Man

First Man


The film’s emotional journey is haunting and devastating. Damien Chazelle has done it again. First Man is a technical achievement and one of the best films of the year.

Poster for Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale


A wonderfully stylish ensemble thriller and exactly the kind of original studio product that the film community should champion in this superhero-dominated era of American cinema.

Poster for Halloween



A capable but traditional slasher sequel to a great original film, but it feels more like a homage-filled update for new audiences than the sequel long-time fans may have been craving.

Poster for 22 July

22 July


Greengrass’ film lacks depth and its style is far too conventional and inauthentic for the film to be effective and memorable.

Poster for Apostle



For those willing to accept that jump, the film becomes a glorious mess of intense violence presented with wicked camera movements.

Poster for Venom



An inspired and crazy performance from Tom Hardy makes a below-average superhero film much more entertaining than it has any right to be.

Poster for Private Life

Private Life


The film is an unshowy and honest glimpse into the life of a married couple struggling with the defining feature of their marriage. I loved it.

Poster for Hold the Dark

Hold the Dark


In spite of the film’s grizzly and chilling look, the sometimes fascinating film is, ultimately, borderline incoherent.

Poster for First Reformed

First Reformed


A stunning masterpiece about an overwhelming crisis of faith with a conclusion that quite literally includes a true Hail Mary-moment in all its unfathomable glory.

Poster for Jane Fonda in Five Acts

Jane Fonda in Five Acts


In spite of a curious, and not entirely convincing, structural thesis, Jane Fonda in Five Acts stands tall as a brutally honest documentary...

Poster for Hell Fest

Hell Fest


A missed opportunity as a slasher franchise-starter. Hell Fest doesn’t do enough with its concept, and, more than anything, it is extremely forgettable.
