    ★★★★

    Most of the praise for Collective centers around the "courageous" reporters, who are "speaking truth to power" in uncovering corruption in the health care system in Romania. There have even been comparisons to the uncovering of Watergate. What's interesting about this is that the corruption is pretty easily uncovered, much easier than the actions around Watergate. And the journalistic aspect of Collective only takes about half of the film. The major point of the film, and what deserves more attention from critics, is how the Government-run health care system was poorly and criminally run. And how difficult it is to extract the many tentacles of corruption.

    The Shape of Water

    ★½

    Take a one-dimensional sadist, with a dash of stereotypical christian hypocrisy. Add a completely unbelievable romantic relationship between a mute cleaning lady and a fish "man" (I use the term, man, very loosely). Then, throw in predictable plot points and a heavy-handed message about how we should respect people's differences. What you get is an over-rated disappointment.

    ★★★★½

    Julien Duvivier's style, at times, reminds of Alfred Hitchcock in his gripping film about the power of gossip and the mob mentality.
