      Bo Burnham: Inside (2021) Angela L. Harmon It was bound to be clever. It was bound to be enlightening. But the degree of devastation that "Inside" imposes on you isn't like anything you'd expect or could prepare for.

      The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020) Angela L. Harmon Intentionally or not, The Trial of the Chicago 7 is an exquisite display of the white man's role in the American political and judicial systems, for better and worse.

      Tesla (2020) Angela L. Harmon This film lacks the fundamental element that made Tesla's AC current so innovative: there is absolutely no spark.

      Boys State (2020) Angela L. Harmon If Boys State is a microcosm of our political system (the lack of girls notwithstanding), of the youth participating in it and their dedication to the cause, have so, so, so much hope.

      Shirley (2020) Angela L. Harmon 'Shirley' imagines the unconventional woman as societal terrorist, capable of profound, delectable corruption.

      The Purge: Anarchy (2014) Angela L. Harmon The world-building of this movie is so lazy that anything built upon it cannot be of any substance, because the foundation is too weak.

      Jersey Boys (2014) Angela L. Harmon Whatever you call it, it operates under the same purpose as trying to fit a donut through a keyhole.

      Ida (2013) Angela L. Harmon If life is made up of small moments, Ida is a full-length mirror.

      Boyhood (2014) Angela L. Harmon Stylistically, Boyhood is exceptional, and Linklater's foresight with technology and culture is something to be revered.

      The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 (2014) Angela L. Harmon Enjoy Mockingjay - Part One for the function it serves to set up the finale, and let's look forward to Mockingjay - Part Two. I think a year from now, hindsight will prove that we were all satisfied with The Middle Middle Child.

      Paranormal Activity (2007) Angela L. Harmon It's one thing to create a movie that functions as good narrative storytelling, but it's another to create that movie knowing exactly how an audience is going to react to stimuli.

      Three Identical Strangers (2018) Angela L. Harmon The film has a thesis, which is incredibly refreshing for a documentary. It wraps up both the narrative it constructed, and offers its audience a little nugget of hope...

      Pawn Sacrifice (2014) Angela L. Harmon Perhaps for a chess enthusiast Baby Boomer, this film has more to offer, but that is a narrow core audience for which a movie should be produced.
      Posted Dec 11, 2019
      In the Heart of the Sea (2015) Angela L. Harmon In the Heart of the Sea is a confused film.

      Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018) Angela L. Harmon Gadsby realized that turning her pain into comedy actually forced her to create a specific narrative of her own life that she repeated night after night until it became her reality.

      There Will Be Blood (2007) Angela L. Harmon There Will Be Blood was so good that it's making me rethink those last three PTA features.

      Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) Angela L. Harmon Won't You Be My Neighbor? confirms what you already knew: Mr. Rogers was a really great man. It's a 134-minute sigh of relief.

      Cameron Esposito: Rape Jokes (2018) Angela L. Harmon There were times when the special felt its thrown-togetherness, but it's pretty impossible to be cynical at it when it accomplishes way more than a comedy special usually does.
      Posted Dec 11, 2019
      Light From Light (2019) Angela L. Harmon 'Light from Light' worked with a light and careful hand to craft a sense of existential ennui that's hard to do without becoming overbearing.
      Posted Oct 19, 2019
      Midsommar (2019) Angela L. Harmon The implication that an audience's emotions should be wrenched out rather than coaxed out is as arrogant as 'Midsommar' is self-indulgent.
      Posted Jul 11, 2019
      Yesterday (2019) Angela L. Harmon Yesterday knows exactly how charming it is, and toes the line of being "too much" so deftly it's basically dancing on it.
      Posted Jun 29, 2019
      On the Basis of Sex (2018) Angela L. Harmon 'On the Basis of Sex' failed to find and use the fortitude of its subject, rather relying on the convention of "humble beginnings" and sucked all the air out of its own story.
      Posted Jan 30, 2019
      Boy Erased (2018) Angela L. Harmon There is a lot of well-meaning ignorance floating around this story, but ignorance is only well-meaning if it does more good than harm.
      Posted Nov 26, 2018
      Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) Angela L. Harmon That McCarthy plays Israel with the fearful distrust of an abused dog creates a distinct relationship between viewer and subject: she's a protagonist that begs to be sympathized with but doesn't command it.
      Posted Nov 25, 2018
      Hereditary (2018) Angela L. Harmon You really think Hereditary's bounty of symbolism will amount to something profound, until the third act when you realize it's abandoned all of its commentary for typical horror fare.
      Posted Nov 16, 2018
      The Wife (2017) Angela L. Harmon Why doesn't Joan's movie know that she's more than a victim? Especially when she also says things like "I don't want to be thought of as the long-suffering wife," and is given scant opportunities to prove herself otherwise?
