78% Five Seasons: The Gardens Of Piet Oudolf (2018) It must not be seen as the opposite of the natural. Design and the natural, art and the aleatory, must become one. This is in Tarkovsky's films. This is in Oudolf's gardens. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) The star of the film is its black director of photography Bradford Young. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

76% Roxanne Roxanne (2018) There is no nostalgia in Roxanne Roxanne, none of that warm halo that surrounds The Get Down. The best times for hiphop were very bad times for Shanté: her mother imploding into alcohol addiction, her moments of homelessness, her bruises.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

84% Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018) What makes [Sverrir] Gudnason's performance so remarkable is this: Every moment he is on the screen, he expresses the interiority of a man who can't afford to lose even one match‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

71% Beauty and the Dogs (Aala Kaf Ifrit) (2018) This is the first outstanding film I have seen in 2018.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

77% Before We Vanish (Sanpo suru shinryakusha) (2018) Before We Vanish is very funny, very bloody, and doesn't have a happy ending.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

No Score Yet Kochuu (2012) Japanese architecture does not resist nature but works with it... Though such an insight is not incredible, the documentary is soothing to watch. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

95% The King's Speech (2010) The film is not even interesting as a work of art.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

87% The Last King of Scotland (2006) In Idi Amin, Whitaker reaches his artistic zenith.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

89% Memories of Underdevelopment (1973) No film in the history of cinema better captures the curse of the intellectual than Memories of Underdevelopment. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

97% Black Panther (2018) But the most revolutionary thing about Black Panther is its city. The capital of Wakanda has skyscrapers, a monorail, sidewalks of grass, green buildings, farmers markets, and no cars.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

88% The Road Movie (2018) If you are as addicted to the YouTube genre of Russian dashcam videos as I am, you will not want to miss The Road Movie. It has everything you want to see and much more.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

57% The Commuter (2018) It's got lots of action and tension. It has an amazing scene that involves smashing an electric guitar on someone's head. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

26% Bright (2017) Critics are foolish to believe they have the critical tools to make meaningful judgments about a movie as confounding as Bright. They just don't. I don't. We have to admit this fact and surrender to Bright.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

78% The Reagan Show (2017) Ronald Reagan and his team changed the whole game of American politics by transforming the White House into a movie studio. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

96% Step (2017) The documentary is straightforward and powerful.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

70% The Paris Opera (L'Opéra) (2017) There are certain sequences in this doc that will lift your spirits up to the highest states of feeling that this art can reach.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

85% Darkest Hour (2017) It's too long. Everything the film has to say could have been easily and neatly packed into 80 brisk minutes.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

93% Die Hard (1988) Here, postmodern architecture meets Reagan-era Hollywood cinema and makes lots of movie magic.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) The spectacles in Star Wars: The Last Jedi are some of the most powerful and believable in the franchises.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

88% Flesh and Blood (2017) But the film, which is raw and gritty, is essentially about the ex-con rebuilding his life in a multi-cultural neighborhood.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

No Score Yet We the Workers (2017) Yes, this formulation of capitalist society is vulgar, but that's precisely because the motor of history is vulgar. Nevertheless, the images in We the Workers, the images of factories and brand-new cities, are amazing.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) The film is not Washington's best, but it, and that mindless/lumbering walk, will not disappoint Washington's fans.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

97% The Light of the Moon (2017) What the director wants us to understand, what the film dramatizes with a complexity that will likely feel personal, is that there isn't only one way to respond to rape.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

86% Brimstone & Glory (2017) The film is, of course, stunning and poetic. That is a given because fireworks, like movies, are above all about impressing the eyes.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

84% The Square (2017) [The Square is] funny, has an act that turns a person's world and family upside down, has lots of uncomfortable situations, and uses a dash of surrealism. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

90% Blade Runner (1982) Blade Runner is a rare work of science-fiction cinema in the sense that it's a machine that generates questions, not answers.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Though Villeneuve has brilliantly continued the technological and commercial world of Blade Runner, he cleared a lot of clutter. So the urbanist in me was disappointed by 2049. But will Blade Runner 2049 be worth it to the rest of you? Visually, yes.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

92% Another Year (2010) This movie is really about a departure.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Why wasn't the American version of Ghost in the Shell set in Los Angeles or New York City or something?‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

80% Personal Shopper (2017) Hollywood must come to Paris, must become a part of Paris, must move up and down the streets of Paris. This is Personal Shopper.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

86% Apprentice (2017) This is a human story. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

63% Before I Fall (2017) This is, indeed, green gothic at its best.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

97% Killer of Sheep (2007) To obtain an adequate understanding of the film-which is about a sad man in a black Los Angeles neighborhood who kills sheep for a living-you must watch it much more than once. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2017
63% As You Are (2017) Altogether lacking the magic of cinema. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

96% Karl Marx City (2017) The documentary is mostly good, but it does make one big mistake.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

75% Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary (2017) As a lover of jazz history or great Americans, it is your duty to not miss this documentary.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

100% Stalker (1979) Stalker is in truth about the beginning of the end of the Soviet Union-and therefore, the end of the 20th century and the socialist experiment.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
