Frances McDormand gives one of the best performances I've seen all year in this movie. The entire film is complex feelings laid out in a realistic, lived in world. Fern is an extremely captivating character. She's silently dealing with the loss of not only her husband, but her community as well. She seems to adopt the nomad lifestyle out of necessi […]
This doc is really well constructed through archival footage, recordings, newspapers, photographs, and displays of documents. The story it tells of Hoover and the FBI's efforts to discredit and undermine MLK and the civil rights movement is well-realized. Very solid documentary.
The calm anxiety that flows throughout this movie is impressive. The Assistant showcases the monotony of daily life for Jane while keeping the more dramatic elements in the background. It shows us how normalized abhorrent behavior is in this setting and the effect is fantastic. There's a scene between Julia Garner and Matthew MacFayden that is masterful […]
It's about what I expected. There's some whimsy to the story and Dev Patel does a fine job with a strong supporting cast. But I really wasn't captivated by the story. The more dramatic moments felt a bit hollow and unearned to me.
Ultimately, Da 5 Bloods is a perfectly fine movie. Delroy Lindo's performance is without question the highlight of the movie. An incredible performance.But the way Spike Lee incorporates breaks in the story to flash news footage of events of the era really makes the whole thing feel disjointed. I absolutely loved the way he ended BlacKkKlansman with foo […]
Leaves a lot to think about. Very powerful and at times haunting performance from Sidney Flanagan. Talia Ryder and Théodore Pellerin give strong performances too. The scene that gives the movie its title is one of the best scenes I've seen all year.
