93% First Reformed (2018) We are treated to long, delicious scenes filled with dialogue that matters, all of it spearheaded by an unwound, infirmed and strangely sexy priest. ‐ Missoula Independent

85% Disobedience (2018) Let the record show that I gave Disobedience a fair shake and still hated it before learning that it was made by one of my least favorite working directors.‐ Missoula Independent

89% Hereditary (2018) Watching Hereditary inspires the kind of fear that makes you irrationally check for phantom hands under your seat that might reach out and grab you.‐ Missoula Independent

84% Pope Francis - A Man of His Word (2018) In service of this particular picture, though, it's best to set... cynicism aside.‐ Missoula Independent

53% Book Club (2018) If you're picturing a montage of each woman turning pages excitedly in various locations with their mouths agape, that's accurate.‐ Missoula Independent

92% Lean on Pete (2018) At its heart, this is a story about wounded people stuck in unhappy lives and all the many and terrible ways they try and fail and try again to make do.‐ Missoula Independent

88% You Were Never Really Here (2018) You Were Never Here has an upsetting, dreamlike quality that lulls you through its 129 minutes and holds you on the edge of a precipice that never fully delivers.‐ Missoula Independent

34% I Feel Pretty (2018) Can Renee's insights into the world of dumpy women save the company? Or will she hit her head again.‐ Missoula Independent

89% Isle of Dogs (2018) The dogs are funny, and the interplay between them represents the story's greatest strength.‐ Missoula Independent

96% The Death of Stalin (2018) "Buscemi leads the cast valiantly in what are sharp comedic performances all around, guided by Iannucci's most savage political satire to date."‐ Missoula Independent

97% Black Panther (2018) Even soulless, Easter-egg hating film snobs like me can find a lot to admire in Black Panther.‐ Missoula Independent

94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) I get that the protagonist is mourning, but geez Louise, does the entire film have to die along with her?‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
47% Red Sparrow (2018) The first half of Red Sparrow is so distinctly terrible, revolting and kind of boring that it's almost mean of me to recommend the movie - but hear me out.‐ Missoula Independent

72% The Ritual (2017) Think The Blair Witch Project, but less original.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
18% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) This is science fiction for a YA audience, ergo, the grownups are expecting too much. ‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
38% When We First Met (2018) Worse than just bad, this movie is utterly harmless.‐ Missoula Independent

91% Phantom Thread (2018) "...an emotional experience that demands to be watched in rapt attention, with all of our cinematic cylinders firing at once."‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jan 21, 2018
92% The Shape of Water (2017) What I can't forgive is how static and simplistic these characters are [...] With no ambiguity, there's nothing for my brain to do except passively watch these soggy characters as they wade to a predictable, saccharine conclusion.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
82% Molly's Game (2018) Molly's Game marks a solid enough directorial debut for Sorkin. ‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Abrams gave us the gentle re-introduction we needed, and it paved the way for writer and director Rian Johnson to take the story in strange new directions.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2017
79% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Dripping with sincerity and brilliance, [Barry] Keoghan's work is forced to exist in the same universe that gave the specifically untalented Ansel Elgort a Golden Globe nomination for Baby Driver. I can't even.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2017
81% Voyeur (2017) I still heartily recommend Voyeur on the strength of its subject matter, as it transcends any quibbles I have with the execution.‐ Missoula Independent

92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) McDonagh's characters achieve complexity and depth that most writers don't even know how to imagine, let alone create, and he does it with brilliant thrift.‐ Missoula Independent

99% Lady Bird (2017) We are doomed to like this movie. ‐ Missoula Independent

84% Loving Vincent (2017) For the love of God, why did this need to be a feature-length production? ‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2017
89% Walking Out (2017) ... a plain and devastating story about family and the traditions that bind them, set against the majestic and inhospitable wild.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2017
90% Gerald's Game (2017) Gerald's Game isn't earth shattering, and it's definitely not sexy. Still, the movie works as a late night, B-picture experience, bolstered primarily by its smart dialogue and emotional cunning.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
90% Super Dark Times (2017) a perverse and strange exploration of real horror, via the unsteady, ill-equipped perspective of doltish teenagers.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
70% The Unknown Girl (La fille inconnue) (2017) The kind of picture you see, are momentarily changed by and then try but fail to encapsulate later with a friend over coffee.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2017
100% Strong Island (2017) The film's central murder carries a potent political subtext about the black experience of the criminal justice system in America, but, more than that, this is a film about loss and irrepressible grief.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
73% Landline (2017) I love this movie most of all because of its career-defining performance by Slate. Her work here reminds me of Tom Hanks from '80s comedies. ‐ Missoula Independent

91% Good Time (2017) One of the best films of 2017.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2017
85% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Ingrid's obsessive behavior is the dark matter fueling this comedy, and for about half of the film's brief 97 minutes, we're running on fumes.‐ Missoula Independent

90% Lady Macbeth (2017) ...about as dark as films get.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2017
16% The Dark Tower (2017) The Dark Tower's rich cosmology has been condensed into a palatable, archetypal story of good versus evil with laughably bad dialogue to see us through in a merciful 95 minutes.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
91% A Ghost Story (2017) This is a story that sticks.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2017
69% To the Bone (2017) Through conspicuous examples and only slightly stilted exposition, To the Bone educates us on the ins and outs of the diagnosis.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2017
4/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) A little carnage goes a long way when it's punctuated with sweeping money shots of thousands of soldiers on an expansive, haunted beach. You don't experience the misery in the misery-you feel it in the spaces in between.‐ doghatesfilm.com
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2017
98% The Big Sick (2017) The Big Sick works because its humor feels effortless and true, and the laughs spring out of genuine tragedy.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2017
43% The Bad Batch (2017) The Bad Batch has a thin story and an incoherent world populated by unconvincing characters, and I felt bored and depressed watching it.‐ doghatesfilm.com
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2017
78% The Beguiled (2017) At its heart, The Beguiled is a story about the explosive and terrible potential of sexuality that burns deep inside the hearts of women. ‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2017
No Score Yet Unseen (2016) Through candid interviews and images of the impoverished Mount Pleasant community, Unseen acts as a haunting indictment of a police force that failed its citizens.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
No Score Yet Olancho (2016) Directors Chris Valdes and Ted Griswold have seemingly impossibly intimate access to their subjects. With gorgeous photography, they capture real, poignant moments.‐ Missoula Independent

93% Baby Driver (2017) What a fun and thrilling summertime romp‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
89% The Force (2017) mesmerizing and, at times, challenging cinema.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2017
91% Raw (2017) Raw is a bizarre, sexy film with a healthy dose of humor about itself.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2017
86% The Lost City of Z (2017) While it didn't exactly make me feel anything, I'm confident that for others, the elements are there to be felt.‐ Missoula Independent
