90% A Star Is Born (2018) The very story of A Star is Born is itself a cautionary tale. Interestingly, Hollywood loves this story. The Cooper and Gaga version is the fourth time the tale is told.‐ Ripple Effects

72% Capernaum (Capharnaüm) (2018) Labaki's realistic camera following Zain, whose family is undocumented migrants, takes viewers into the heart of a very real, universal issue, no, not about refugees, but the problem of unfit parenting.‐ Asian American Press

98% Shoplifters (Manbiki kazoku) (2018) Kore-eda is a masterful storyteller. Just as we're complacent and pleased with how this peculiar family goes on, secrets begin to spill... Layer by layer we're led into stark, riveting realism.‐ Asian American Press

92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) What's in a name? It should be quite obvious that such a book title is intended to be satirical. That Nick has been hiding his wealth and privileged background in order to woo Rachel tells exactly the opposite of what the book/movie title conveys.‐ Asian American Press
