Lady Bird

Credit is due to Gerwig and her thespians for wheedling such a fat bird off the ground.

Good Time (A24)

But I found discomfort in the order of priorities. They go something like: Aesthetic grunge, shock factor, brotherly love, morality play, and why not some racial asides? The careful sibling...

Dunkirk

With Dunkirk Nolan has finally joined the echelons of his idols. Where before he gawked, here he stands amongst them. The trick, it seems, was simple: He shut his characters...

Baby Driver

Baby Driver’s a 2 hour rhythm exercise finished in bold primary colors on 35mm anamorphic, a diegetic music video that pitter patters to a tactile soundtrack and allows the beats...

A Ghost Story

There’s irony in the fact that ‘A Ghost Story’ will live long past its makers.

Okja

Like a lot of popular Korean New Wave artists you probably wouldn’t note Bong Joon-Ho for his restraint. But his frames are littered with details, personality, and, in this case,...

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...
