83% Queen & Slim (2019) I wouldn't call the film tedious - Matsoukas' aesthetic choices are too sharp for that - but on the whole, Queen & Slim has more style than substance. - Nashville Scene EDIT

97% Knives Out (2019) Rian Johnson's Knives Out is an ingenious whodunit that lets us laugh at rich assholes - in this case, those of House Thrombey - and root for a protagonist who is authentically delightful. - Nashville Scene EDIT

99% The Chambermaid (La camarista) (2019) Avilés brings us startlingly close to that mundanity, and we walk away from the film with a greater knowledge of how our desires make us human, just as much as our struggles. - Nashville Scene EDIT
