Bloody messes and frantic nerves are painted with a monochromatic palette and stand through fixed and unflinching framing.

Shows how absurdity, ridiculousness, and irrationality can be exactly what is necessary to properly entertain.

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot

8.0

2018, Drama

Few movies on any level could ever dream a way this damn good to marry and blend stoic manliness and a whimsical romance on top of the lurid exploits its title advertises.

The Equalizer 2

8.0

2018, Action, Suspense, Crime

This twisty sequel takes the temperature and weight of the cold lead hammer that is Denzel and heats it with anger and stakes to match the hot lead being shot around him.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

6.0

2018, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime

A second film that should be raising stakes not stalling them. The promise of a third is still plenty intriguing.

Damsel

4.0

2018, Drama, Comedy, Western

The third act peters out and trudges this film to a tedious and somewhat lackluster finish where the glee is lost.

Without taking into account the words and people, Mountain is a perfect package of perilous beauty.

2018, Action, Comedy, Suspense, Crime

Plenty clever and cool in its own right, the summer tentpole is a highly enjoyable little diversion of escapism, true to its intent and design.

2018, Documentary

Presents the core of that incomparable man with an impenetrable reputation of resilience, even against criticism and cynical parody of his messages.

Poster for The Guardians

The Guardians

4.0

2017, Drama

Though spareness was the goal to match the desolation of the setting, The Guardians grows wings when his music arrives. Those moments are too few and depart quickly.
