Arrival (2016)

Gone Girl (2014)

"In a sense, Fincher gives us a perversely perfect first date movie with Gone Girl. It's an in-depth examination of a long-term relationship that makes you wonder if it's possible to really know or trust anyone." ‐KPBS.org

Compliance (2012)

Hell or High Water (2016)

"Hell or High Water is something rare. It's a film for adults and by that I mean it's smart, it has something to say, and it doesn't condescend to the audience." ‐KPBS.org

Can We Take a Joke? (2016)

The Lobster (2016)

"There is much about this film that I love, and yet I can't embrace it fully. But I adore how Lanthimos creates a kind of ominous oppressiveness combined with a goofy absurdism." ‐KPBS.org

Knight of Cups (2016)

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)
