    Spencer

    ★★★★★

    “You can be a hot mess express and still leave the world better than you found it.” – You’re Wrong About (Princess Diana)

    Spencer is personal and overwhelming, a feverish fantasy that imprisons Diana, forcing her to escape. Her story is transformed into a mythical confrontation between past, present and a desolating future that allows her to move forward stronger and surer of herself.

    On Christmas Eve 1991, Diana is the last to arrive at Sandringham. William and Harry are…

  • The Bridges of Madison County

    The Bridges of Madison County

    ★★★★★

    The Bridges of Madison County is domestic and gentle, almost too intimate to be portrayed on camera and to be seen by so many.

    An Iowa housewife, home alone while her family travels to the Illinois State Fair, experiences four days of adventurous bliss after she meets a photographer in town to take (no, make) pictures of the famed covered bridges of Madison County for National Geographic; it’s the sketch of an escapist fantasy, but that’s not what Eastwood focuses…

    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    ★★★★★

    At the threshold between wide-eyed wonder and a darkness that looms larger and larger, The Prisoner of Azkaban is Harry Potter at its most magical. Hogwarts is not a safe place anymore; the horrors of the wizarding world have pierced through the barrier that seemed to keep them away. An escaped murderer is on the loose, soul-sucking dementors are patrolling the school’s grounds, and executions await the innocents. But for the first time in his life as a wizard, Harry…

  • The Lost Daughter

    The Lost Daughter

    ★★★★

    The Lost Daughter tries to fill in the gaps between the broken pieces of a life. A woman alone in Greece attempts to make sense of herself. Her past is a mystery, and the truth eludes her. But as she starts seeing herself in those around her, realizations flood her peaceful vacation, and she is forced to face the ugliness within her.

    Leda is a professor and a mother, sometimes, separately; sometimes, at once. In her late 40s and with…

  • Spider-Man: No Way Home

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Spider-Man: No Way Home works better as individual scenes than it does as a whole. If you look at the big picture, everything it supposedly achieves starts coming apart at the seams because… it’s not much. Everything it is and does, it owes to the previous live-action iterations of Spider-Man. Its big emotional swings come from villains fought by other universes’ Spider-Men and its moments of relief come from reminiscing over transformative experiences we’ve already witnessed. The purpose of it…

  • Nomadland

    Nomadland

    ★★★★★

    Living as a nomad means sacrifice. It comes with uncertainty and a lack of stability that’s difficult to understand for outsiders. But for nomads, it’s a trade-off that brings beauty and freedom. They carry their home in their hearts and the people they love in their memories, and for many of them, it’s enough, as they make their way from town to town through the American West.

    Nomadland is a tender look at this way of life, centering on Fern,…
