77% Suburban Birds (Jiao qu de niao) (2019) Qiu's directorial touch is remarkably gentle-while rhyming images and stories across plotlines, he avoids schematic logic in favor of a light mystery of unity, seeking a quiet depth beyond sensory perception. - Film Comment Magazine EDIT

84% Knife + Heart (Un couteau dans le coeur) (2019) If the first ten minutes of a movie build to a slasher-sex death by convertible Swiss Army dildo, the rest of it has to deliver. Yann Gonzalez's Knife + Heart does so, even poignantly. - Screen Slate EDIT

59% Strange Weather (2017) The film leans on contrived setups, further weakened by the literal-minded deployment of Sharon Van Etten's score at key turning points, but Holly Hunter and Carrie Coon enliven the film with psychological nuance. - Film Comment Magazine EDIT
