61% Twin Peaks - Fire Walk with Me (1992) Not a goddamn thing happens in this movie. I actively hated it. It made me yearn for the absolute worst episode of Twin Peaks.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

95% 78/52 (2017) Philippe spends ninety minutes dissecting a two-minute scene, and in doing so reveals the depth of Hitchock's genius in a way a much broader discussion likely couldn't.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

33% Fun Mom Dinner (2017) The film's low-key meandering almost recommends it, compared to more manic versions of this story. FUN MOM DINNER won't exhaust you, but it won't exhilarate you either.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
