2/4 77% The Misogynists (2020) Onur Tukel's film doesn't live up to the promise of this fleet-footed opening. - Slant Magazine EDIT

1.5/4 10% Intrigo: Death of an Author (2020) The film evinces neither the visceral pleasures of noir nor the precision to uncover deeper thematic resonances. - Slant Magazine EDIT
