B- No Score Yet O Beautiful Night (2019) Nina's presence is symptomatic of problems that exist in the entire film, which favors oddly disconnected scenes that never truly gel together, leading to a take-it-or-leave-it approach. - The Playlist EDIT

93% Wanda (1971) Eschewing plot in favor of character study, Loden creates a fully-rounded portrait of a character unable to find her true meaning. - The Playlist EDIT

D 17% The Outsider (2018) It's hard to fault The Outsider too much though, as it will predictably fall into the black hole that is Netflix original movies, so here's hoping that Zandvliet, Leto, and especially Hjelm move on to better things in the near future. - The Playlist EDIT

B+ 80% Drift (2017) What Drift does illustrate, though, is that Wittmann is a major talent with a lot of promise. Regardless of whether she coalesces a more grounded narrative in the future or not, it'll be exciting to what where she goes next. - The Playlist EDIT

83% Notes on an Appearance (2018) Despite [its] flaws, Notes on an Appearance illustrates a confident director who leans heavily on his own idiosyncratic style, something that can't be faulted too much. - The Playlist EDIT

C 76% What Will People Say? (Hva vil folk si) (2018) Haq soon levels one torture after another on Nisha, sacrificing nuanced storytelling for blunt force trauma and reducing everyone that isn't Nisha into caricature. - The Playlist EDIT

B+ 70% Galveston (2018) What we are left with is far from a perfect film, but Laurent is a confident director who elevates the pulpy plot of Pizzolato's novel into a unique reflection of characters on the margins of society. - The Playlist EDIT

A 100% Charm City (2018) Charm City may not be an easy watch, but [director Marilyn] Ness argues that through empathy, progress can be made. - The Playlist EDIT

A- 100% Diane (2019) Quiet and profound, Kent Jones' feature debut Diane tells the small-scale and moving story of a woman navigating through her tiny community of friends and family in rural Massachusetts. - The Playlist EDIT

A 67% Come Sunday (2018) Buoyed by exceptional performances by Ejiofor, Jason Segel, and notably, Lakeith Stanfield, this is a film that should not be missed. - The Playlist EDIT

B No Score Yet Thy Kingdom Come (2018) "Thy Kingdom Come" reclaims that great performance while allowing often marginalized subjects the chance to share their story. - The Playlist EDIT
