100% United Skates (2018) The film is more than skating, more than the intricate and beautiful motions these skaters demonstrate. It documents community and racial pride, pride that comes from not only black culture, but from black owned businesses as well.‐ 812filmreviews

4/4 99% Roma (2018) Aparicio provides color in the smallest, yet most tantalizing spectrum. She provides the hues that are rarely valued but should be taken for silver and gold. She provides the pallet of the everyday.‐ 812filmreviews

4/4 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri unfolds as a typical revenge vigilantly ploy, and could have stayed so under normal direction and screenwriting. Instead, it gets turned into one of the best pictures of the year.‐ 812filmreviews
