87% Madeline's Madeline (2018) Decker captures the emotional caprices of her characters with thrilling immediacy, allowing her sociopolitical commentary to trickle in through background details.‐ Film Comment Magazine

94% Who We Are Now (2018) While Nicholson's onscreen, it's impossible to pay heed to anything but her. She scorches the film with her barely bottled ferocity and vulnerability.‐ Village Voice

96% Zama (2018) Even as Martel steeps the film deep within Zama's perspective, she observes his tortuous male pathos with the critical distance of a female gaze.‐ Village Voice

3.5/5 75% Gemini (2018) Although rife with wry nods to familiar tropes and meta-commentary on the making of mysteries, Gemini is not so much an ironic perversion of the genre as a woozy, Instagram-y evocation.‐ MUBI

89% The Insult (L'insulte) (2018) For all its bluntness, The Insult confronts us with the true complexity of the Middle Eastern conflict and the ways in which war obliterates the ideas of victimhood and responsibility, rendering the justice system farcically inadequate.‐ Film Comment Magazine
