9/10 100% Depraved (2019) The film shows the creepy grittiness of the particular part of Brooklyn near the Gowanus Canal that can feel pretty scary at night. Depraved is also a grand tour of South Brooklyn. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 100% Alice (2019) The performances are great. I especially enjoy the friendship dynamic between Emilie Piponnier and Chloé Boreham as Alice and Lisa. Martin Swabey as Francois is the perfect, horrible clueless man that you'll love to hate. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Building the American Dream (2019) This film opens your eyes even more to exactly how unfair this country is to undocumented immigrants, particularly those of Latinx origins. Chelsea Hernandez tugs at our heartstrings and puts fuel to a fire of righteous anger. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 78% Captain Marvel (2019) I'd say it's on par with Thor: Ragnarok for being a mostly jovial entry into the MCU and I like it just about as much. I also can't wait to see what Larson brings to the table in Avengers: End Game. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 100% Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz (2018) One of the best things about this film is that it shows there are people out there who have hope and the determination to turn that hope into action towards an achievable goal. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 97% Woman at War (Kona fer í stríð) (2019) Woman At War is one of the best films I've seen about climate change that isn't either a documentary or an extremely pedantic horror story. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 76% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) It's a delightful comedy about some of the darkest stuff we can go through as humans, which can only be pulled off by certain writers and directors. Gus Van Sant is definitely one of them. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 100% Midnight Family (2019) I think it's important that Lorentzen shows worldwide audiences the desperate situation with healthcare in Mexico with Midnight Family. Perhaps this will lead to charitable donations and reforms to improve the system. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 100% The Disappearance of My Mother (2019) I didn't know much about Benedetta Barzini before seeing this film, so don't feel intimidated by that if you don't either. You will get to know a lot about her throughout the film, and if you're anything like me, you'll love her by the end... - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 20% Hospitality (2018) Hospitality doesn't break any molds for originality, but the dialogue is excellent, and for mostly being a bottle episode, only taking place in the house and the surrounding property, the lack of set changes doesn't deter from the story. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 90% Ghostbox Cowboy (2018) The score by Casey Wayne McAllister encapsulates the dystopian discomfort the film is out to convey, somehow being serene yet grating simultaneously. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 100% The Panama Papers (2018) The most critical element of Winter's documentary is not the scandal itself, but the fact that hundreds of journalists from around the world were able to work together to expose this corruption, despite the consequences, and their egos. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 75% The Clovehitch Killer (2018) The Clovehitch Killer is one of the best horror films to come out this year. It's intelligent and subversive, and it captures the banality of small-town life perfectly. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 78% Mid90s (2018) The actors who form the skate crew were all skaters in Los Angeles. Jonah Hill strove for authenticity everywhere throughout the film, and it's 100% apparent in the choices he made. - Film Threat EDIT
