3/5 82% Game Night (2018) Jesse Plemons nearly steals the movie as Max and Annie's freshly-divorced cop neighbor Gary, who's all kinds of funny... The co-directors might overdo the heartfelt interludes, but they add just the right amount of Gary to the insane mix.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

3.5/5 81% The Party (2018) Although the characters tend to fit too tidily into types... the performances add dimension that deepens the mounting mysteries. The revelations start to trickle out, pouring forth to the point of deluge.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

4/5 94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) Penetrating and poignant, A Fantastic Woman speaks with Marina's powerful, daring voice, sounding a clarion call demanding she be treated with dignity and respect, and on behalf of all the LGBTQ fighters who refuse to be erased.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2018
No Score Yet Above & Beyond Acoustic: Giving Up The Day Job (2018) The film is preachy, too, in its own way, using images of mesmerized concert attendees to proselytize on behalf of loving this band.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2018

3/5 80% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) If the deader than deadpan line readings are better viewed as a conceptual game than as a compelling acting exercise, then Farrell at least wins points for a surgically precise performance that's dynamic in its flatness.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)
