61% Vox Lux (2018) Music is beside the point here. Vox Lux is concerned with the desensitizing powers of idol worship, with all its relevant connections. It understands the lure of escape and questions the effects of that desire. - Hyperallergic EDIT

88% Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat (2018) Overexposure has at once gone deeper and flattened out the story. What else is there for people to say? - Hyperallergic EDIT

90% John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection (L'empire de la perfection) (2018) Focused solely on McEnroe during his matches at the tournament, it is both a meditation on the psycho-dramatics of sports, its links to cinema and their shared relationship to time, and a pure celebration of the body in motion. - Hyperallergic EDIT

No Score Yet Common Carrier (2017) Rarely has a film captured so sharply the modern precariousness of working from home, of the artist's struggle to balance freedom and dependence. - Hyperallergic EDIT

No Score Yet Chung Kuo Cina (1972) As a series of images of China during this period, Chung Kuo is an invaluable document. - Hyperallergic EDIT

85% The Square (2017) As much as The Square enjoys poking fun at the buffoonery of the art world, it's more interested in what that world represents: a self-sustaining bubble where money, power, and posturing commingle. - Hyperallergic EDIT

79% The Reagan Show (2017) The most fascinating moments of The Reagan Show are when the line between politics and public relations is shattered. Reagan is best when he has learned his lines... When somebody goes off script, you can see the energy drain out of his face. - Hyperallergic EDIT

100% Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present (2016) Instead of shrinking down Conrad's life into something that is digestible and easy to understand, the film celebrates its wild looseness and leaves the access points wide open for anyone to enter. - Hyperallergic EDIT

100% Strong Island (2017) What Ford is trying to do with Strong Island is make his family's history visible once again, to give it the clarity and focus that were taken away. Through this process, the wounds of the past might be healed. - Hyperallergic EDIT

83% Nocturama (2017) Little is said about the particular ideology of the film's main characters... It's this abstraction of meaning, the way the film refuses to prescribe an interpretation to the events unfolding, that makes it challenging and, ultimately, rewarding. - Hyperallergic EDIT

91% Austerlitz (2016) The film is relatively silent -- there is no added commentary, no titles, no extra sound -- capturing an emotional detachment that is hard to shake, all the more so because of its prevalence. - Hyperallergic EDIT

50% I Had Nowhere to Go (2018) In Gordon's film, if we're going to call it that, there is little visual instruction. We're left to make our own film in our head. Thankfully we have a guide. - Hyperallergic EDIT
