      Piaffe (2022) Sean Burns A slippery meditation on gender and eroticism that drifts into a wondrous state of abstraction, full of dialogue-free interludes powered by sound, movement and sex scenes in which people aren’t actually having sex.

      Beau travail (1999) Sean Burns The movie is a mass of engorged muscles and entwined limbs; desire rerouted through conformity and cruelty in the rhythm of the night.

      Creed III (2023) Sean Burns Jordan is let down in a big way by cinematographer Kramer Morgenthau, who flattens all these evocative images into a hazy, low-contrast, digital blur.

      The Quiet Girl (2022) Sean Burns A delicate film of small gestures and the slow building of trust.
      Posted Mar 02, 2023
      How to Rob (2022) Sean Burns A familiar story of two stick-up guys from Quincy who knock over the wrong North End bookie, but beneath the Boston crime movie clichés is a surprising lyricism, building to an unexpectedly emotional conclusion.

      Posted Feb 14, 2023
      One Fine Morning (2022) Sean Burns There’s a beautiful flow to the picture. I’ve heard it compared to a river, which is one of those things critics say that sounds crazy until you see the movie and then it makes perfect sense.

      The Eternal Daughter (2022) Sean Burns ‘The Eternal Daughter’ isn’t a horror movie, but it’s haunted. This is a hotel where you bring your own ghosts.

      Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975) Sean Burns "It is a towering achievement in cinema. It's also one of the last films I’d ever recommend to casual moviegoers, which is why the placement of 'Jeanne Dielman' at the top of the BFI list strikes me as such a problematic provocation.

      Skinamarink (2022) Sean Burns You don’t watch the movie so much as you sink into it, allowing yourself to be enveloped by the intensely unsettling atmosphere.
      Posted Jan 12, 2023

      Posted Jan 08, 2023
      White Noise (2022) Sean Burns You’d never get a movie like 'White Noise' if it needed to make any money at the box office. For the audience, this is both a blessing and a curse.
      Posted Jan 08, 2023
      Holy Spider (2022) Sean Burns 'Holy Spider' is awfully hard to watch, but I don’t think there’s any responsible version of this story that isn’t.
      Posted Dec 21, 2022
      All the Beauty and the Bloodshed (2022) Sean Burns It feels all of a piece, restlessly questioning entrenched ideas of what constitutes decency and respectability in America.
      Posted Dec 11, 2022
      A Couple (2022) Sean Burns On the surface this might seem an inversion of the filmmaker’s entire modus operandi, and yet 'A Couple' is still spiritually a Frederick Wiseman film through and through.
      Posted Dec 02, 2022
      Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (2022) Sean Burns Funnier and more manic than the first film, even if there’s an irony in seeking to satirize the immodesty of tech-bubble billionaires by setting as much of Netflix’s money on fire as humanly possible,
      Posted Nov 21, 2022
      Utama (2022) Sean Burns 'Utama' is not exactly what one would call a subtle or particularly complex piece of storytelling. Nor does it need to be.
      Posted Nov 21, 2022
      Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) Sean Burns A dutiful, mirthless movie derailed by a real-life loss from which no franchise could feasibly recover.
      Posted Nov 08, 2022
      Lost Highway (1997) Sean Burns Peels away the pulp trappings and runs almost entirely on film noir’s foundational fears.
      Posted Nov 05, 2022
      The Lady From Shanghai (1948) Sean Burns A sweaty, seriously horny movie that’s also accidentally a documentary about the last days of a Hollywood marriage.
      Posted Nov 05, 2022
      Out of the Past (1947) Sean Burns A melancholy dream of a movie with Mitchum at his most magnetic and insouciant, nearly every line a zinger and so many cigarettes smoked so seductively the film could cause cancer in casual viewers.
      Posted Nov 05, 2022
      Causeway (2022) Sean Burns A quiet, unassuming picture that moves at the speed of everyday life.
      Posted Nov 05, 2022
      Halloween (1978) Sean Burns A favorite of both the Film Comment set and the Fangoria crowd because, at heart, it’s a minimalist art film.
      Posted Nov 05, 2022
      Evil Dead 2 (1987) Sean Burns The zaniest zombie movie ever made.
      Posted Nov 05, 2022
      Angel Heart (1987) Sean Burns Scary as hell but also something of a hoot, with a mordant sense of humor and some of the genre’s greatest character names.
      Posted Nov 05, 2022
      Twixt (2011) Sean Burns A strange, snickering and sometimes terribly sad picture that deserved a better audience.
      Posted Nov 05, 2022
      Night of the Living Dead (1968) Sean Burns The cruel and abrupt ending is still shattering and feels even more depressingly plausible today.
      Posted Nov 05, 2022
      Ticket to Paradise (2022) Sean Burns Feels like being handed a glass of water after a long walk across the desert. It’s lukewarm tap water and a little cloudy, but you’re grateful for it all the same.
      Posted Oct 21, 2022
      Tár (2022) Sean Burns There’s nothing didactic about ‘Tár,’ nor any simple moral you can hashtag or put on a bumper sticker. The film is complicated. Difficult. Much like its protagonist.

      Pierrot le Fou (1965) Sean Burns The most spectacularly beautiful of Godard’s films, and not just for the closeups of Karina.
      Posted Oct 10, 2022
      Band of Outsiders (1964) Sean Burns It’s impossible to imagine Tarantino’s italicized pulp fiction without the arch influence of this effervescent caper.
      Posted Oct 10, 2022
      Breathless (1959) Sean Burns Godard is constantly calling attention to the artifice and reminding you that you’re watching a movie. Much like its protagonist, 'Breathless' can't stop looking at itself in the mirror.

      Posted Sep 27, 2022
      Don't Worry Darling (2022) Sean Burns It’s a drag being so far ahead of the characters the entire time, and Wilde’s maddeningly repetitive structure makes the viewer feel as trapped as the protagonist.
      Posted Sep 26, 2022
      Moonage Daydream (2022) Sean Burns A swirling, maximalist mosaic both electrifying and exhausting.
      Posted Sep 15, 2022

      Posted Jul 22, 2022
      Nope (2022) Sean Burns A throwback to funny Friday night fright flicks like 'Tremors' or 'Signs', Peele's latest is an audience picture full of good, old-fashioned jump scares and blessed with an economy of scale.
      Posted Jul 20, 2022
      Both Sides of the Blade (2021) Sean Burns No living director so evocatively photographs a tangle of limbs, or is as adept at capturing the electric charge of two people sharing a small physical space.
      Posted Jul 16, 2022
      Elvis (2022) Sean Burns A tacky, towering monolith of gaudy overkill and excess — as any film about Elvis Presley should rightfully be.
      Posted Jun 23, 2022
      Hit the Road (2021) Sean Burns Panahi's debut starts out like 'The Griswolds Go to Tehran,' but then it sneaks up on you and becomes something more.
      Posted Jun 23, 2022
