TIME SHARE Review

So masterfully directed is Time Share that its tale of wolfish sales tactics crosses over from petty satire and enters into emphatic human drama.

BURNING Review

Chang-dong’s technique of the aloof and mysterious slow-burn, buttressed by moments of poetic and moving expression, make his latest a must-see.

SUSPIRIA Review

Though unapologetic in how differently it approaches tone, style and narrative from the glossy Argento classic, as a companion piece, Suspiria fleshes out the ideas present in the original and elevates them to a grandiose distinction

HALLOWEEN Review

Green's Halloween is a return to form for the franchise that feels worthy to close the book on Haddenfield that Carpenter and Hill opened 40 years ago.

JOHNNY GRUESOME Review

Perhaps, on paper, this half-baked, undead slasher about a metalhead rising from his unjust grave and taking it out on the living works, but I have my doubts.

CINEMABILITY: THE ART OF INCLUSION Review

Good intentions mean a lot and Gold would know more about the disabled Hollywood experience than any of us, but this does not make her film any less better structured or clear in its overall intention. I applaud her for wanting to open up the conversation, but opening it up does not go far enough, especially when we have known the conversation has existed long before Gold's film came to be.

I THINK WE’RE ALONE NOW Review

Though it puts a strong foot forward, the more I Think We're Alone Now and Del opens up to you the more predictable and meandering its vision of unconventional friendships for the end of the world becomes.

Tiff 2018: KILLING Review

With his latest, maverick actor/director Shinya Tsukamoto continues his later career's exploration of more traditional genre forms examined under his iconoclast perspective with the condensed and eclectic samurai drama Killing.

LET THE CORPSES TAN Review

Let the Corpses Tan proves itself trapped between its acid-western origin point and its generic shoot-em-up plot structure, unable to artistically rectify the two poles of its superficial identity.

A WHALE OF A TALE Review

A Whale of a Tale is the intermediate approach writ large, and though it has its moments in dispelling The Cove's hypocrisy and misinformation and shattering the Taiji fishermen's inaccurate cultural justification for their brutal practice, it is still the meager sucker fish clinging to another film for dear life while being inconsequential in its own terms.

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN Review

There is just something missing here that would make Christopher Robin worth the Disney-prescribed injection of medicinal nostalgia for trying times.

ELIZABETH HARVEST Review

My eyes glazed over as Elizabeth Harvest stumbled to retroactively unspoil itself while attempting to gaslight you into believing its twist was actually brilliant and original with the right context.
