T-Meter Title | Year
99% Totally Under Control (2020) Sometimes the choices feel on the nose, like footage of square-dancing serving as a metaphor for the viral spread, but they're generally suitable and visually interesting. - The Spool EDIT

98% The Forty-Year-Old Version (2020) As a performer, Blank's a winning presence too; she moves smoothly between the comedic and the dramatic, the two modes never feeling incongruent. - The Spool EDIT

71% Tenet (2020) When you ignore what Nolan wants you to pay attention to (how smart he is) and just let the dynamism and endless cool wash over you, it's a thrilling experience. - The Spool EDIT

41% Centigrade (2020) "While the premise here is interesting, this quickly descends into a tedious and disappointing slog." - The Spool EDIT

84% Lingua Franca (2020) "This is an emotionally raw and subversive work with a lot of artistry." - The Spool EDIT

60% Project Power (2020) For a premise that boils down to "What if the crack epidemic but with superpowers?", the framing actually holds up pretty well. - The Spool EDIT

53% Waiting for the Barbarians (2020) Instead of being a grand meditation on the ethics of colonialism, Waiting for the Barbarians ends up confused, dull, and woefully shallow. - The Spool EDIT

82% Sometimes Always Never (Triple Word Score) (2020) It very much feels like a mediocre fringe festival script stretched to feature-length. - The Spool EDIT

98% Hamilton (2020) Instead of reckoning with the past and present, we get a colourblind presentation of history which erases the racialised dynamics on which America is built. - The Spool EDIT

99% Miss Juneteenth (2020) You get the familiar repackaged with such tenderness you'll forget that you've seen it before. - The Spool EDIT

93% Da 5 Bloods (2020) Da 5 Bloods feels both timely and timeless, Lee giving an unflinching look at the connections between anti-Blackness, identity, and American imperialism. - The Spool EDIT
