  • Little Women

    Little Women

    ★★★★★

    ‘What novelty is worth that sweet monotony where everything is known and loved because it is known?’ How great is that?” 

    I have a really difficult time fully and comprehensively articulating the emotional weight Little Women has begun to carry for me since I first saw it at the beginning of this year. It is truthfully unparalleled to any other film I’ve seen in the entirety of my life. This is the sixth time in a year that I’ve sat…

  • Nomadland

    Nomadland

    ★★★★★

    "I maybe spent too much of my life just remembering..."

    Chloé Zhao's Nomadland provides a confronting examination of the most universally experienced proponent to our existence: mortality. Both in the all too familiar secondhand experiences of witnessing the ones we love face their inevitable ends and the far more jarring firsthand experience of death. Death is inevitable. It's pain. It's agony. It's peace. It's freedom. It's the end. It's the beginning. It's a circle within a circle within a circle.…

  • Monsters and Men

    Monsters and Men

    ★★★★

    Reinaldo Marcus Green’s feature debut is one whose ambition pays off in tenfold. 

    Told through three different character’s perspectives, the three leads each give deeply emotional performances that feel all to real when it comes to depicting the effects of racial violence and police brutality. 

    The characters were all so interesting and that is both a major bonus but also a bit of a draw back for Monsters and Men. The very lean runtime means we don’t get to stick…

    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★

    Promising Young Woman is like biting into a caramel apple but discovering far too late that someone’s replaced the apple with an onion. 

    I don’t know how to look at the film as any kind of woke, feminist victory that so many others seem to see it as. I understand the conclusion being drawn about it in that regard, but god does it bum me out. 

    Take my words as just one feminist’s perspective in a sea of impressively wide…

  • Death to 2020

    Death to 2020

    The first of what will be decades worth of white men trying to cleverly joke about 12 months of never ending global trauma. I am already tired of it.

    I hope Leslie Jones and Joe Keery made bank for being here.

  • Black Bear

    Black Bear

    ★★★★★

    You’re really hard to read...” 
    Yeah, you know what, I get that all the time, but I actually think that I’m so easy to read that people just get confused and they make it harder on themselves.” 

    Black Bear is savagely primal. Aubrey Plaza’s performance is both captivating and horrifying. Christopher Abbott and Sarah Gadon delivery as well, but our lead is the lead for a reason. Plaza plays off the two of them in such an intense way that…
