Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
53% Woman Walks Ahead (2018) Woman Walks Ahead doesn't accomplish all that it could, but it's far from a bad film, or even a mediocre one. It avoids over-romanticizing the American West, even as it trades on romance. ‐ Citizen Dame

100% Egg (2018) As a chamber piece brimming with vicious humor and barely contained fury, Egg is enduring, frightening, and deeply troubling.‐ Citizen Dame

40% Mary Shelley (2018) This is a CW version of 19th Century Britain, more interested in mediocre aesthetics than in any real exploration of these characters or their age.‐ Citizen Dame

85% Disobedience (2018) There are moments of exceptional beauty in this film, warmth and affection piercing through repression, love interacting with faith, the need to expand beyond the bounds of an orthodox world. ‐ Citizen Dame

100% Boiled Angels: The Trial of Mike Diana (2018) The question is not do we like the art, but whether or not that art should be censored and its creator fined and imprisoned for producing it. Can we excuse an attack on First Amendment rights because the art is personally repellant to us?‐ Citizen Dame

100% The Vanished (2018) The Vanished is a twisty South Korean psychological thriller, a clever amalgam of classical cinematic influences - especially Diabolique-filtered through a powerful narrative about the nature of perception and guilt. ‐ Citizen Dame

No Score Yet Rokuroku: The Promise of the Witch (2017) Despite its pitfalls, Rokuroku is a fun piece of Japanese horror, the sort of film you watch with your mouth slightly open. Don't expect a coherent structure or payoff. Go into this film as though it's an amusement park funhouse, and enjoy the experience.‐ Citizen Dame

93% First Reformed (2018) First Reformed ultimately plays as a personal religious polemic, one steeped in an existential despair over the world and God, that somehow manages to avoid even a remote sense of the spiritual. ‐ Citizen Dame

80% The Witch in the Window (2018) The Witch in the Window is unlikely to become the next big sleeper hit, but then it doesn't aspire to be - it aspires to tell a good scary story.‐ Citizen Dame

100% Number 37 (Nommer 37) (2018) Nosipho Dumisa's Number 37 is certainly Hitchcockian and makes no attempt to conceal its influences, instead playing with imagery and plot points to tell a new story that would've made the Master of Suspense proud.‐ Citizen Dame

62% The Little Stranger (2018) This is a story about people denied emotional openness, humanity, the freedom to express themselves. It is the horror of lives controlled by an unseen force, and the violence that results.‐ Citizen Dame

100% Tigers Are Not Afraid (Vuelven) (2017) Tigers Are Not Afraid is a searing, emotional celebration of children, told through their eyes, in a world in which magic is possible and tigers stalk the night.‐ Citizen Dame

86% Madeline's Madeline (2018) A dive into the complicated psyche of a young woman whose work with an experimental theater troupe begins to blend into her own life, emotional problems, and relationship with her mother.‐ Citizen Dame
