    System Crasher

    ★★½

    It's so hard to feel enough empathy for such an insufferable kid, and I honestly don't buy the amount of empathy and forgiveness she gets from the other characters — not to mention how they keep leaving her with other children after she has repeatedly proven how dangerous she can be.

    The Quartet

    There is an unstimulating restraint in this film that makes it feel anecdotal and afraid of embracing the possibilities of its premise, with much of what we see coming off as underdeveloped and failing to convey the intensity it so clearly needed.

    The Handmaiden

    Park Chan-Wook explores the power of narrative (the way you tell a story and its ramifications), creating another astounding visual spectacle full of dark humor, sexual desire, betrayal and revenge, with intense performances and a wonderful production design, editing and score.

    ★★★★½

    If there is something more terrifying than alien body snatchers, it is our own dark sides crawling out of our depths to take our places in society, and Peele creates an intelligent allegory replete with symbolism of how today's 'US' is making this red chain of madness all the more possible.
