80% Unsane (2018) [Claire] Foy does a remarkable job keeping us focused on her plight, even as she remains an almost entirely unreliable and unlikable protagonist. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

100% Patton Oswalt: Annihilation (2017) To watch [Patton Oswalt] wrestle boldly with the emotions of that experience and the aftermath of it, while still finding those pockets of joy and strange humor, is affirming and beautiful. - Paste Magazine EDIT

91% Frantz (2017) [Director François] Ozon uses Frantz to investigate the nature of forgiveness following a war-though they shared a border, Germany and France were on opposite sides of the conflict-and the weight of grief. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT
