Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
67% Golden Exits (2018) These narcissists declaim their insecurities and grievances in the language of personal essays. What they're saying may be petty and small, but the rhetoric and imagery are transfixing.‐ The New Republic

84% The Final Year (2018) It isn't, like [Don DeLillo's] novels, paranoid or funny or, despite its tragic surprise ending, full of dread. It is, like Obama himself, optimistic about the state of the world. ‐ The New Republic

69% Happy End (2017) The film proceeds like a melodrama, but you may leave the theater thinking you've just seen the blackest of comedies.‐ The New Republic

87% The Post (2018) The film portrays this period as a golden era for journalism. In many ways it was a golden age, but the real heroes were the whistleblowers and reporters, and that's no slight to the real risks editors and publishers like Bradlee and Graham took.‐ The New Republic

91% The Disaster Artist (2017) Perhaps Franco's two decades of résumé mongering has all along been in the service of harnessing the real freak he had inside all along.‐ The New Republic

80% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) It's less a film about crime and punishment than an occasion for Lanthimos to cycle through the idiosyncratic set of perversities that first grabbed our attention but has been growing staler with each picture.‐ The New Republic

84% The Square (2017) The Square delivers a savage satire on the international art world.‐ The New Republic

98% Lucky (2017) Lucky never reaches for the tragic. It's about the grim absurdity of old age and death as anticlimax.‐ The New Republic

70% The Unknown Girl (La fille inconnue) (2017) One of the strangest aspects of [the Dardennes'] work is their combination of sweeping plot twists and endings that leave the door open to both hopeful and hopeless futures.‐ The New Republic

92% Good Time (2017) The Safdie brothers' new movie with Robert Pattinson breathes life into a waning genre.‐ The New Republic

92% Dunkirk (2017) Occasional bursts of flames, imperiling many of the effectively nameless characters, come as a relief from the chromatic tedium.‐ The New Republic

91% A Ghost Story (2017) A Ghost Story isn't coherent or profound, but it's pretty and strange-sad in its quirky way, and blessedly short.‐ The New Republic
