66% Fatherhood (2021) Kevin Hart centers the film based on Matthew Logelin's memoir Two Kisses For Maddy: A Memoir Of Loss & Love with a compassionate gaze. - Film Companion EDIT

97% The Human Voice (La Voz Humana) (2020) ...empty, compelling fun. Swinton's dialogues are pronouncements, padded by the dog's mewling... - Film Companion EDIT

80% Ahaan (2021) It's certainly not a bad film. With sweetness, and uncomplicated arcs, it's all heart. But it's not so difficult to want the heart to tug too and not just coo in admiration. - Film Companion EDIT

No Score Yet Tuesdays and Fridays (2021) Young, beautiful people grappling with traditional values in an old, beautiful city that is grappling with modernity - a great romantic premise derailed by its attempt to sound hip-and-happening... - Film Companion EDIT

77% Bad Trip (2020) With hidden-camera pranks there is an inherent tension. This tension fills every scene, which is designed to go South with the smallest provocation...It's that tension that keeps the narrative adrenaline pumping. - Film Companion EDIT

16% Ava (2020) Even while the film never tanks, it also never soars beyond that initial promise of adrenaline. - Film Companion EDIT

50% The Midnight Sky (2020) [It] plays out without the pangs of emotion, or the punch of drama... - Film Companion EDIT

3.5/5 64% Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare (2020) A layered, complex film with stellar performances. - The Times of India EDIT

56% Love, Guaranteed (2020) For a fleeting, kind, compassionate genre, this was a fleeting, kind, and compassionate film. - Film Companion EDIT

49% The Babysitter: Killer Queen (2020) There is oddly nothing sinister about this violent film, which makes it a perfect distraction, because it gets your attention from the go. - Film Companion EDIT

64% The Devil All the Time (2020) This is a film of as much birth as burial. It can tire the impatient, but if endured has a pay-off of that sinking gut I mentioned earlier on. - Film Companion EDIT

27% The Kissing Booth 2 (2020) Oh the trappings of sweet love untested by time or tide... - Film Companion EDIT

83% The Way Back (2020) Grau's long shots are clean, and his close-ups are gritty and shaky. Together, they create a masterful portrait of being stuck in languor. - Film Companion EDIT

No Score Yet Eric Andre: Legalize Everything (2020) It's a physical comedy act, and Andre's comfort with himself is indeed endearing, but only in parts...the desire to shock and the desire to evoke laughter are quite different... - Film Companion EDIT

No Score Yet The Last Days of American Crime (2020) A mess you just don't care for, and rarely understand... - Film Companion EDIT

93% Hannah Gadsby: Douglas (2020) With Nanette she spotlighted this with urgency, and necessity. And that's where Douglas falls behind; I just wish this one felt more necessary... - Film Companion EDIT

17% Maska (2020) I rooted for nostalgia to win, just because of how flaky ambition looked. But the charm of the past lasts only so much; the failure of this film speaks to a broader failure of the culture of nostalgia. - Film Companion EDIT

No Score Yet Paddayi (2018) The first Tulu film to go live on streaming, Abhaya Simha's retelling of Macbeth is a stunningly shot theological tale. - Film Companion EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2020
95% Little Women (2019) Greta Gerwig, known for her wit and charm, conjured a universe that while witty, and charming, lacks depth and that enduring quality. - Film Companion EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2020
69% Jawaani Jaaneman (2020) It's well-acted, well-intended, but the shoddy writing labours the film... - Film Companion EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
94% Panga (2020) A sports drama film without caricatured villains is a bold movie. It has its pay-off, but also its trade-off... - Film Companion EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
14% The Body (2019) A missing dead body, a suspect adulterous husband, and a Mauritian monsoon backdrop. I wish the movie was half as exciting as this pitch. - Film Companion EDIT

43% Pati Patni Aur Woh (2019) What could have been funny falls flat. - Film Companion EDIT

43% Panipat (2019) Ashutosh Gowarikar's film on the Third Battle of Panipat is needlessly elaborate, surprisingly progressive, but largely trite... - Film Companion EDIT

77% Bala (2019) What could have been inventive, ends up becoming formulaic asserting of armchair progressive values. - Film Companion EDIT
