    The Good Liar

    ★★

    The Good Liar is an unremarkable little revenge story with a con you almost see coming, but not quite. It’s tediously mediocre in the beginning, predictably subversive in the middle, and peculiarly severe in the end. Mirren and McKellen are exceptional, no surprises there, but the story doesn’t serve them quite as well as they serve it.

    Annette

    ★★★★★

    Annette is a masturbatory display of performers performing performances, a revolving door of the symbiotic relationship between an audience and its entertainer. The Celebrity is almost too meta to process at certain moments... but there's just as much cause for audience self-reflection here. Annette aims an uncomfortable spotlight on the worshipful position an audience exists to put itself in: our insatiable desire to be made to laugh or to cry, or to be allowed a glimpse behind the veil of entertainment…

    ★★★

    This cast is a 90s wet dream!

    I’ve never laughed so hard. I misguidedly ate this sensationalizing macho bullshit up as a teenager, and revisiting it now a decade later in a moment of knee-knocking nostalgia reveals a great deal about both my genetic makeup and my formative years... my gender is whatever sarcastic asshole wrote this stupid dialogue. It’s time I made my peace with it.


    NB Armageddon is a monster movie masquerading as an action flick: the asteroid has its own theme music and atmospheric vibe, and it spends the film trying to kill a bunch of humans. That’s a grade A monster!
