Poster for The Kindergarten Teacher

The Kindergarten Teacher


The only reason to watch The Kindergarten Teacher is Ms. Gyllenhaal’s performance, whose quality makes us resist until it’s possible.

Poster for Apostle



Has the proper mood but, regardless the different styles, couldn’t surpass the adrenaline infusion of The Raid installments, Evans’ true specialty.

Poster for BlacKkKlansman



A word of praise for the energetic performances from Washington and Driver and the awesome score by jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard.

Poster for Searching



Chaganty wanted his film to look intelligently cryptic, but what he achieved was just completely muddled. Moreover, the storyline is naive, contrived, and ultimately nonsensical, all aggravated by the utterly unconvincing performances from Cho and Messing.

Poster for First Man

First Man


The magnificent score by Justin Hurwitz enhances the floating sensations of a different gravitational acceleration and combines in perfection with Lindus Sandgren’s detailed cinematography.

Poster for Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade


The script, smartly and carefully written by Burnham, carries all the sensibility to depict Millennials in a way that is simultaneously funny, unnerving, miserably heartbroken, and honest. It definitely rang true to me.

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born


The film didn’t touch me in the heart, presenting more inept than satisfactory moments, both drama and music-wise.

Poster for Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace


The low-key temperament of the storytelling and the authenticity of the performances are strong elements of a subtle and intelligent film that captures our attention from the very first minute.

Poster for Mandy



Even though it's all too gut-wrenching and sunless, kudos to a fast and furious Cage, who returns from the dead with an insatiable appetite for vindictiveness.

Poster for Life and Nothing More

Life and Nothing More


If the story is thoughtful and promising, then the editing needed some polishing to avoid unconsidered cuts and precipitate image transitions contrasting clumsily with the sluggish development.

Poster for Blindspotting



A powerful encounter of hip-hop music - somewhat displaced and too calculated here - and the racial complications that keep saddening America and the world.

Poster for A Gentle Creature

A Gentle Creature


Its mysterious ways, bolstered with a bit of psychedelic surrealism, makes it notable.

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout


This blockbuster satisfies in its purpose but doesn’t earn the title of ‘impossible to miss’.

Poster for Les Salopes, or the Naturally Wanton Pleasure of Skin

Les Salopes, or the Naturally Wanton Pleasure of Skin


The complexities do not always succeed, but, as a character study, the film poses some interesting points of view...

Poster for Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians


This somewhat cheesy crowd-pleaser offers a great deal of neurotic gossip addressed with annoying pomposity and superfluous multi-cultural fashion.

Poster for Heaven Without People

Heaven Without People


Can a brilliant ending save a film? Sure, but I strongly feel this one could have given much more if handled with a little more subtlety.

Poster for Night Comes On

Night Comes On


There is nothing new or striking here, but rather emphatically emotional, in a film about decisions that never quite convinces in terms of a hypothetical revenge.

Poster for Adrift



The film shapes into an exhausting melodrama instead of the harrowing, devastating adventure that everybody was expecting.

Poster for Who We Are Now

Who We Are Now


There is nothing fanciful or odd in Newton’s story.

Poster for Tully



Feels more contrived than astute, having the skilled group of actors working hard to avoid further damage.

Poster for Upgrade



The well-told Upgrade maintains the dystopian vibrancy until the end, compensating the less vivid moments with a subtle dark humor that fits hand in glove.

Poster for Hostiles



Protracted, deficiently paced, and lugubrious, Hostiles eludes the viewer with limited action and redundant scenes...

Poster for Sollers Point

Sollers Point


The decreased intensity and long-suffering nature of the film are not obstructive since Keith’s frustration feels authentic and the backdrop/atmosphere painfully realistic.

Poster for The Rider

The Rider


This powerful, quiet, and confessed drama with shades of Western will give you much more than what you are expecting.
