Poster for La familia

La familia


The young Reyes stands out and the production values are strong, with a well-deserved special mention for the cinematography of Luis Armando Arteaga.

Poster for Roma



While the performances are immaculately genuine, Cuarón’s unparalleled direction convinced me in every aspect since he never loses focus with trivialities.

Poster for Colette



Despite some admirable period details, the interesting moments come and go in a perpetual intermittence, becoming increasingly scarce when the story reaches its final part.

Poster for Tyrel



Tyrel breaks at the weight of its own ambition, feeling like an undergraduate exercise in tension. Sadly, even that tension is wasted.

Poster for The Guilty

The Guilty


With so little, Moller extracted the most of a story he co-wrote with Emil Nygaard Albertsen, also on account of Cedergren’s flawless performance and some clever warps in the script.

Poster for Madeline's Madeline

Madeline's Madeline


In addition to the dreamlike tones created, which feel intriguing and disorienting, there is a furious earthly side well rooted in reality.

Poster for Lizzie



With such a potential story in hands, Macneill had everything to create greater suspenseful moments with a stronger impact if he hadn’t a heavy hand. A thriller that is never unsettling soon becomes a triviality.

Poster for We the Animals

We the Animals


Mounted with arresting visuals and dream-like tones by documentarian Jeremiah Zagar, We The Animals is a strong personal statement sustained by an absorbing narrative.

Poster for The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give


Besides didactic, the film carries the expected passion, objection, and anger to transform itself in something dramatically appealing. However, clichés in the storytelling as well as in the visual dynamics are a reality, while the surprises are few.

Poster for Widows



Deftly mounted to please the crowds in obvious ways, Widows benefits from the organized structure of its storytelling and the ability to never slackening in tension or emotion.

Poster for The Wife

The Wife


Despite the potentiality, this embittered love tale and domestic drama film never exploded because neither of its characters exploded when they needed and were supposed to.

Poster for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs


This is cinema peppered with generally convincing acting and the superior visual sensibility of French cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel, who had already worked with the Coens in Inside Llewyn Davis. It is original, brainy, and funny.

Poster for Zama



Filled with situations that mirror the social and racial preconception of the time, this hypnotic tale of punishment and atrocious colonialism is an engrossing experience, likely to be turned into a cult film.

Poster for The Little Stranger

The Little Stranger


Here, the ambiguity doesn’t work as a positive factor and not everyone will have the patience for a family tragedy that on several occasions felt apathetic and calculated. It should go down smoothly with fans of the genre, though.

Poster for Support the Girls

Support the Girls


The stakes of the premise simply aren’t enough to carry this story, thus, the best you will get is Hall’s genuine performance, and Bobo (Lea DeLaria), a quite curious character who should have had more time to shine.

Poster for Cold War

Cold War


It is a simply told, beautifully composed piece of work in which the black-and-white cinematography by Lukasz Zal enhances the dramatic tones of a decadent and ultimately tragic romance.

Poster for Dogman



Beautifully shot, this character study fascinates in an almost perverse way, building up adequate levels of tension throughout and bursting with disturbing scenes of violence. It is also a tale of solitude, equally tragic and funny, heavy and whimsical.

Poster for Damsel



A flimsy Western comedy with monotonous, thinly written characters, pointless dialogue, and unsatisfactory conclusions.

Poster for Thunder Road

Thunder Road


Pelted with tragicomic scenes, Thunder Road, an acceptably funny slice of comic drama, depicts anxious times by carrying a furious tone and bitter pathos.

Poster for Sorry to Bother You

Sorry to Bother You


Even if the deadpan humor doesn’t always triumph, there is some mordant social commentary expressed with a satirical posture, which sort of replaces it.

Poster for Burning



The resplendent soundtrack and the naturalistic performances make a significant contribution to the success of this achingly poignant meditation on passion, in its strangest forms.

Poster for Hereditary



Not perfect but does what the good horror movies do, relying on suspense and tension to deeply involve the viewer. Hence, prepare to be disturbed.

Poster for The Divide

The Divide


Despite the predictable ending and a bashful posture, there are emotions running steadily, and the hope of a happy future ultimately makes us enjoy a drama film that also serves as a showcase for King’s estimable acting capabilities.

Poster for Border



While the talented director keeps the things flowing with the appropriate amount of tension, the lead actors respond with absolute brilliance.
