2/4 50% MFKZ (2018) The bulk of MFKZ is composed of chases and shoot-outs that, despite their chaotic energy, drive the plot forward at the most plodding pace.‐ Slant Magazine

2/4 91% Heavy Trip (Hevi reissu) (2018) Its story distances heavy metal from any whiff of toxic masculinity by setting Turo and company against homophobes and rakes.‐ Slant Magazine

3.5/4 100% Over the Limit (2018) Over the Limit is composed of minutely observed moments that Marta Prus has assembled into an affecting narrative.‐ Slant Magazine

2.5/4 87% Love, Gilda (2018) Its success is due to the way it relies on Radner's often elegant words to relay her experience of female stardom.‐ Slant Magazine

1.5/4 71% Final Score (2018) To observe that Final Score is yet another Die Hard knockoff may be tiresome, but it's not as if the film gives one much of a choice, as it offers up a ceaseless barrage of scenes lifted from the John McTiernan classic. ‐ Slant Magazine

3.5/4 97% I Am Not a Witch (2018) It finds that rare nexus of the comic and the tragic, underlining the absurdity of a terrible situation without demeaning those who have been harmed by it.‐ Slant Magazine

1.5/4 44% Destination Wedding (2018) The way Destination Wedding uses misanthropy to augment screwball tropes ends up being its undoing.‐ Slant Magazine

.5/4 0% Reprisal (2018) Reprisal is at pains to profess its faith in the symbols of law and order, but it cannot fully repress its almost erotic longing for the unfettered violence of the terrorist.‐ Slant Magazine

3.5/4 95% Crime + Punishment (2018) The film is a vivid illustration of how racism is perpetrated through the structure of nominally egalitarian institutions.‐ Slant Magazine

2.5/4 89% Skate Kitchen (2018) The film is empathetic toward and clear-eyed about its young characters, even if the drama it constructs around them tends toward the superficial.‐ Slant Magazine

1.5/4 38% Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti (2018) Gauguin represents for the film no less an ideal Romantic subject than the Polynesians represented for the painter himself: penniless, chronically ill, and living in self-imposed isolation—the very embodiment of the suffering artist. ‐ Slant Magazine

3/4 98% The Cakemaker (2018) The film binds its narrative to fascinating explorations of national identity, sexuality, and, of course, food.‐ Slant Magazine

2/4 79% Love, Cecil (2018) Lisa Immordino Vreeland's avoidance of a serious analytical bent ends up stifling the documentary.‐ Slant Magazine

1.5/4 91% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) The steadiness with which Haley's film progresses through its dramatic beats is rather like its familiar-sounding indie pop, moving rhythmically toward a predictable climax whose emotional intensity feels unearned. ‐ Slant Magazine

2/4 52% A Kid Like Jake (2018) Silas Howard's film feels like a scenario from a textbook about handling a child's gender nonconformity.‐ Slant Magazine
