3/4 98% Saint Frances (2020) By the end, the authenticity of their bond feels so well-earned that you might not mind watching another movie about them growing up with each other. - Washington Post EDIT

3/4 91% Beanpole (Dylda) (2020) If you can grit through it, the film offers a rewarding - if also unnerving - look at survival in the face of tragedy. - Washington Post EDIT

2.5/4 86% Color Out of Space (2020) As untidy and un-profound as "Color" may be, Stanley swings for the fences, when almost any other director-in-exile would have tried to get back in Hollywood's good graces with an act of penance. Score one for the eccentrics of the world. - Washington Post EDIT

3.5/4 87% Synonyms (Synonymes) (2019) What makes "Synonyms" so compelling is how it explores the theme of identity through a lens of searing self-reflection. - Washington Post EDIT

2.5/4 63% The Good Liar (2019) The story, which is ultimately about how we wish to portray ourselves, lands well enough, for the most part. - Washington Post EDIT

4/4 99% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) Much like the Kims, a viewer can get lulled into luxuriating in the superficial details of the film. But it's what's lurking below the surface that will stay with you long after the movie is over. - Washington Post EDIT

1.5/5 26% Killerman (2019) Killerman takes its influences and synthesizes them into an increasing rare thing: a movie that doesn't aspire to any greater heights than where it lands: squarely in the middle of the August dumping ground. - Washington Post EDIT

1.5/4 39% Angel Has Fallen (2019) Most action flicks would settle for thrilling violence and mayhem, in service of a utilitarian plot. "Angel" flips this formula on its head, delivering a surprisingly coherent story but with no discernible sense of fun. - Washington Post EDIT

2/4 42% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Unfortunately, "Monsters" tries a little too hard to correct course from what some saw as its predecessor's flaws. - Washington Post EDIT

3/4 69% Climax (2019) Noé has made what might be his most accessible and, yes, tender film to date, teasing the idea of heavenly bliss - before heading straight to hell. - Washington Post EDIT

1.5/4 61% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) [I]t's hard to follow where this movie goes, in no small part because the film itself has trouble finding a path. - Washington Post EDIT
