54% Ma (2019) Taylor and Spencer's detour to horror drifts, ever backward, into the zone of schmaltz. - New Yorker EDIT

79% Amy Schumer Growing (2019) Schumer's knee-jerk overshare here aspires to more than the quick, gross-out response. But her exhibitionism does not amount to real confession. - New Yorker EDIT
