96% Booksmart (2019) Indeed, the hyper-adrenalized pace, over-the-top set pieces, and conspicuously flashy production values strain so hard...fortunately, there's just enough charm left over to make the movie worth a look... - culturevulture.net EDIT

58% The Highwaymen (2019) The procedural elements of the plot aren't quite interesting enough to justify the bloated running time, nor are the underlying themes or the standard-issue personalities of the protagonists. - culturevulture.net EDIT

90% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) ...each of the ballad's half dozen chapters effectively succeeds on its own terms thanks to the Coens' deadeye knack for plot and dialogue, humor and foreboding, the unexpected detail and the cruel twist of irony. - culturevulture.net EDIT

77% Small Town Crime (2018) Finally, there's Ian and Eshom Nelms' rollicking modern noir, which - okay, to be honest, would be equally entertaining on a screen of any size. - culturevulture.net EDIT

78% Atomic Blonde (2017) Brutal fight choreography closer to the Bourne movies than "Bad". - culturevulture.net EDIT

91% David Lynch: The Art Life (2017) Burrows deep under your skin 'til you're falling, falling ever more deeply into the subconscious of this haunting documentary's subject. - culturevulture.net EDIT

93% Most Beautiful Island (2017) Yet rather than just settling for a grim, social-realist slog, [Ana] Asensio plays up the harrowing suspense of her character's struggle for survival, pushing it towards a logical if wildly unpredictable dramatic extreme. - culturevulture.net EDIT

100% Mr. Roosevelt (2017) [Noël] Wells spirals out from there to capture a snapshot of contemporary life in post-slacker Austin that's both spot-on specific and universally relatable. - culturevulture.net EDIT

28% Suburbicon (2017) To say more about the plot's twisty schemes and double crosses would be to spoil the fun of this flawed yet highly watchable B-movie. - culturevulture.net EDIT

99% Lady Bird (2017) Yet while [Greta] Gerwig doesn't exactly reinvent the coming-of-age genre, she packs it with great scenes, dialogue and performances - culturevulture.net EDIT
