T-Meter Title | Year
40% Wasp Network (2019) It's too bad for the stellar cast, who are sacrificed for the film's admirable but undeveloped entry points: entertain telling a lesser-known story and draw parallels with todays' global migration debates. - Cinema Scope EDIT

89% Ema (2019) Like her new relatives, we observe with awed, questioning eyes. - Cinema Scope EDIT

100% Sole (2019) Sole is a reserved film, its rhythm controlled by silent, hyper-composed, mostly still shots, ut the otherwise flat narrative is stirred by several nearly imperceptible movements. - Cinema Scope EDIT

94% Marriage Story (2019) Marriage Story doesn't want you to take sides-if you do, it may be that you've chosen the performer, or their performance of their part. - Cinema Scope EDIT

89% The Souvenir (2019) Joanna Hogg's The Souvenir is a memorable cinematic lesson, so rich and articulated as to be better described as lived rather than seen. - Reverse Shot EDIT

62% American Dharma (2019) Understanding becomes the preliminary, if not foundational, weapon to exercise opposition. Although not entirely successful, American Dharma is a first step in that direction. - Cinema Scope EDIT

87% The Sisters Brothers (2018) What may at first glance seem to be detours from the main narrative are in fact crucial, and update the genre while providing a bridge between the foundation of West(ern) culture and its contemporary repercussions. - Cinema Scope EDIT

90% A Star Is Born (2018) A Star is Born is devoid of depth. It feels like a missed opportunity, since its core subject offers many cues to tell a contemporary story. - Cinema Scope EDIT

93% Queen of Earth (2015) It leaves us puzzled, insomuch as we struggle to understand whether the characters share their disorienting and desperate feelings with us, or they just played us, fooled us with the oldest tricks of cinema. - Berlin Film Journal EDIT

78% Ned Rifle (2015) What I feared could be a denatured film, revealing signs of outdated views or style, appears to be proof of inspiring wholeness instead. This is what I long for in cinema. - Berlin Film Journal EDIT

75% Victory Day (2018) Loznitsa's gaze appears to be charmed by human figures, thus losing control over the space, a temporary infatuation with public demonstration of cultural identity that briefly allows us to relax and enjoy the view. - Reverse Shot EDIT

30% The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez (2016) It seems that Wim Wenders has found his special medium, and, for better or worse, he will keep experimenting with it. - Cinema Scope EDIT

94% Arrival (2016) ... Villeneuve cleverly uses the oldest means at his disposal-montage and storytelling-to produce a film that, in however modest a way, represents a valid chapter in science fiction's cinematic evolution. - Cinema Scope EDIT
