2.5/4 92% The Breadwinner (2017) Visually captivating even when it's narratively uneven, the animated film "The Breadwinner" tells the story of a brave girl living in Afghanistan under the Taliban in the lead-up to the 2001 U.S. invasion.‐ Washington Post

2/4 98% Kedi (2017) Though pleasant to watch, Torun's feature debut feels more like a meandering montage than a structured narrative, and it could easily be half as long.‐ Washington Post

2.5/4 93% Our Little Sister (Umimachi Diary) (2016) While the emotions may be muted, there's still something appealingly heartfelt about the way these siblings find each other. One can't help but cheer them on.‐ Washington Post

3/4 58% The Cut (2015) Akin uses a visually compelling yet sober, almost restrained, aesthetic that differs from the more full-throttle approach of some of his previous work.‐ Washington Post
