      The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes (2023) The action scenes remain well-shot and tightly edited, and even without the provocative political energy of the Katniss years, the cultural parallels between Panem’s world and ours retain their unsettling power. - Time Out

      Let It Be Morning (2021) Kolirin has a sense for the bleakly surreal, and an ability to balance even the darkest experiences with empathetic shades of gray. - TheWrap

      The Man in the Basement (2021) Because Le Guy’s adroit script brings the past into the present so realistically (Fonzic might as well use the term “crisis actors”), “The Man In the Basement” is often almost unbearably fraught. - TheWrap

      Food and Country (2023) Reichl's ambitions are far greater, which is both the movie’s boldest asset and eventual undoing. Director Laura Gabbert tries to cover all of Reichl’s interests, which leaves her with (at least) five movies’ worth of material. - TheWrap

      The Stroll (2023) Lovell and Drucker fill out the picture with vivid footage that brings us back to the late 20th century. Noirish animation from LA shop AWESOME + modest evocatively recreates some of the women’s alternately wry and wrenching stories. - TheWrap

      Scrapper (2023) What happens next isn’t any great surprise: these two lost souls are actually soulmates. But Regan, who also wrote the script, has so much empathy for them that she convinces us their story needs to be told. - TheWrap

      Young. Wild. Free. (2023) When a film revisits stories, characters and locations so similar to ones we’ve seen before, it requires a particularly strong point of view to rise above the realm of homage — or cliché. - TheWrap

      A Still Small Voice (2023) Lorentzen’s camera sits quietly and nonjudgmentally so that his soft-spoken subjects can explore and express the grandest themes imaginable: what it means to live, and how we learn to die. - TheWrap

      The Disappearance of Shere Hite (2023) Newnham is blessed with a surfeit of footage, and she makes the most of it, building a damning if now exhaustingly familiar case of societal misogyny. - TheWrap

      Shotgun Wedding (2023) The story is perfunctory, the editing haphazard and the tone inconsistent. There’s too much violence for the escapist rom-com the dialogue suggests, and not enough adventure for the “Die Hard in Paradise” plotting. - TheWrap

      Joyride (2022) Why would Olivia Colman waste her time with such a pandering project? - TheWrap

      Nelly & Nadine (2022) “Nelly & Nadine” isn’t just a war movie but also a touching family history, an unforgettable romance and, above all, a magnificent tribute to the power of persistence in art, life and love. - TheWrap
      Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2022
      To the End (2022) One of the subjects of “To the End” notes that she wants to “speak things into existence.” It’s a painfully poignant wish, representative of the blend of optimism, desperation, and determination that powers the entire film. - TheWrap

      Darby and the Dead (2022) This is not a great look for a modern movie aimed at girls, even one with production standards that call to mind a tween sitcom pilot. Indeed, there is little worse than a script built on contempt for its own characters. - TheWrap
      Read More | Posted Dec 01, 2022
      Disenchanted (2022) The original dared to push back, to think a little differently, to admit that it was time for Disney to evolve. Its follow-up goes in the other direction, searching for safety in easy familiarity. - TheWrap

      Bar Fight! (2022) It mostly seems as though someone came up with the concept while out drinking with buddies of their own. But “Hey, wouldn’t this make a great movie” ideas often look better on a napkin than a screen. - TheWrap

      Dear Zoe (2022) Too much of “Dear Zoe,” though, feels factory-designed to engineer emotion rather than aiming to earn it organically. - TheWrap

      Holy Spider (2022) Yes, Saeed has been exposed to cruelly patriarchal mores, but the fetishistic way in which the killings unfold take us well past any social statement. - TheWrap

      Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power (2022) As a substitute for a Feminist Film Studies 101 class, “Brainwashed” gets the job done a lot more quickly and cheaply than if you registered for grad school. - TheWrap

      The Swimmer (2021) The movie keeps us guessing, as cinematographer Ofer Inov shows off particularly impressive skills with so many deft fluctuations in tenor. - TheWrap

      Art & Krimes by Krimes (2021) Although the film is structured as a straightforward biography, Nahmias has infused it with an artistic sensibility as well, gathering a team that has clearly been meticulously chosen. - TheWrap

      Bandit (2022) That he captivates so many of his victims is only understandable because he’s played with so much elan by Duhamel. (It may occur to you while watching that the star would have made a great, old-school Bond.) - TheWrap

      About Fate (2022) The women are nuts, the men are clueless and the production is so cheap you could pass the time spotting every mistake no one bothered to fix. - TheWrap

      Pinocchio (2022) Grim, psychosexual fairy tales like “Pinocchio” can still be effective, of course, if the tellers respect the primal feelings and fears they evoke. But if they hedge with warmth or whimsy, the results curdle quickly. - TheWrap

      Loving Highsmith (2022) Together, Highsmith’s former flames draw a compelling portrait of underground life in the mid 20th century, as we learn how each influenced the author both personally and professionally. - TheWrap

      The Good Boss (2021) It’s mesmerizing to watch such a powerful actor underplay so effectively. The more familiar Blanco feels, the more unsettling he becomes. - TheWrap

      Three Minutes - A Lengthening (2021) It is the silent moments, when Stigter allows us to watch the film in awe, that hit the hardest, and it’s particularly effective when we are required to sit with our own thoughts and observations of the images. - TheWrap

      Bloom Up: A Swinger Couple Story (2021) Rouge (making his first documentary) seems unsure where to go beyond the initial, and hardly groundbreaking, notion of following a polyamorous couple around for a while. - TheWrap

      Mija (2022) The film’s best scenes are, in a way, the flip side to its weaker ones: the closeness between Castro and her subjects lessens their objectivity but strengthens their intimacy. - TheWrap

      Medusa (2021) It would be easy to define her film as “Suspiria” by way of “Carrie,” if you ran it through a “Heathers” wringer, but that would undermine the impassioned creativity she brings to her project, which feels deeply personal. - TheWrap

      From Where They Stood (2021) We can, thanks to movies like this one, continue to bear witness. But we will never truly know the reality he tries so hard to unearth, and that remains our burden to hold. - TheWrap

      Both Sides of the Blade (2021) This tension between Denis’ cinematic imagination and the characters’ quotidian lives winds up feeling less nervy than frustrating. - TheWrap

      Unfinished Business (2022) Emotional, affecting, and aptly-titled, “Unfinished Business” serves as a spirited and inspiring introduction to both of its subjects. But it’s simply not big enough to encompass so many heroes all at once. - TheWrap

      Happening (2021) Diwan’s fly-on-the-wall direction, echoed by Laurent Tangy’s ultra-tight cinematography and the production’s naturalistic lighting and sound, draws us into the suffocating immediacy of every passing day. - TheWrap

      Dual (2022) Stearns first two movies earned their adoration the hard way, challenging audiences with pitch-black humor and an off-kilter tone. While "Dual" goes for the jugular as well, it doesnt cut nearly as deep. - TheWrap

      All the Old Knives (2022) A stiffly somber Pine, entombed in turtlenecks and long scarves, is introduced like hes in one of those perfume commercials celebrities try to keep hidden overseas. Despite a few moments of tense intrigue, the rest of the film too often follows suit. - TheWrap

      We Feed People (2022) His hands-on contribution to literally millions of global citizens is genuinely astounding in its generosity, innovation, and practical application. But the movie itself can come across as less cinematic than advertorial. - TheWrap
