4/5 100% The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales (Le grand méchant renard et autres contes) (2018) The hand-drawn, 2D animation is utterly beguiling, conveying the pleasingly nostalgic feel of a beloved children's book. It's also beautifully paced...‐ The List

4/5 98% Jane (2017) Van Lawick's footage - elevated by a score from Philip Glass, no less - is nothing short of extraordinary and it seems almost criminal that it was kept locked away in a National Geographic vault for so long.‐ The List
