The Beguiled

Coppola’s reticence has lucked upon their most fitting circumstance. The hellish requiems screaming up from beneath a life’s worth of enforced tradition and good manner is never heard, and Coppola’s...

|| It Comes At Night ||

I’m being hard on Shults. It Comes At Night nearly says something about human behavior in the throes of internalized fear. Instances are great, particularly Paul’s (surprisingly, he’s the one...

Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom

Though the story can surprise in its thematic ambition (racism, domestic backstabbings), the pacing is a little awry. The initial take off takes a bit too long to leave the...

I, Daniel Blake

It’s just unfortunate how familiar I, Daniel Blake plays out. It maintains an odd juncture between Hollywood tropes and indie neo-realism and pace. The performances and Loach’s frustrated finesse can...

Twin Peaks: The Return

That satisfaction comes with legwork, and so far, that’s the primary well you’ll yield it from. Some comes from Lynch’s technical wizardry, its sound design (done by the man himself),...

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

But, you care just enough about the characters for Ritchie’s verve to blindsight you. Or maybe, it won’t, and maybe, you won’t care. A good way to gauge it: If...

The Lost City Of Z

Gray treads the moral ambiguity cautiously, never condemning or loving his protagonist too obviously. That makes Percival real. He is not the angelized pioneer, nor is he so blatantly a...

Free Fire

This intimately scaled vulgarity feels like divine intervention for the actioner; a genre drowning in its own density. Here, in a chamber piece, every shot fired matters, amidst a chain...

Genre classic

Horror films will often make their point by what scare outweighs the rest. In Get Out it’s not the gore or conspiracy, but the whine and flicker of police sirens....
