Wields an effeminate brawn and sly intelligence working to stoke a masterful slow burn. The film’s bold gravity constricts us wonderfully for one of the most visceral crime films of recent memory and one of the best films of 2018. Review

Rami Malek and the film thrive when the volume is turned up and the microphones are on. It withers when it stifles that provocative heat. Allowing something this hot to go lukewarm is a cinematic crime. Review

Bracingly honest with its turns and barriers built by emotional wallop. The remarkable performances of Carell and Chalamet deserve the credit for that impact. Review

To its great credit, the merciless edge of Loving Pablo rejects forced cinematic sugar-coating overused in other crime films to romanticize its leviathans. Review
