      Rating Title | Year Author Quote
      Top Gun: Maverick (2022) Cate Young "It’s a valid critical interpretation that Top Gun: Maverick is merely propaganda wrapped in a very pretty bow. But boy, that bow is really something."

      Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie (2023) Cate Young "With Fox’s help, Guggenheim creates a compelling if perhaps unintentional narrative about the way disabled people are forced to contort themselves into a world that doesn’t accommodate them — and the possibilities that open up for them when it does."
      Posted Jan 27, 2023
      Fair Play (2023) Cate Young "Fair Play is an explosive and audacious debut that earns every second of its tautly wound twist and turns. Domont, who also wrote the film, is clearly a talent to be reckoned with, and Fair Play hints at the exceptional promise to come."

      Little Richard: I Am Everything (2023) Cate Young "Little Richard: I Am Everything contextualizes the way he shaped the entire spectrum of rock and roll music. The pioneers of rock and roll were black and queer, and Little Richard was at its zenith."
      Posted Jan 27, 2023
      Polite Society (2023) Cate Young "Polite Society has the same bouncy energy as Manzoor's excellent television show We Are Lady Parts. Her protagonist is self-assured and bold — a worthy addition to the lineage of Indian protagonists Mindy Kaling has made commonplace."
      Posted Jan 27, 2023
      Lizzo: Live in Concert (2022) Cate Young "Lizzo stands in our culture as a figure of radical possibility. Her existence and success is proof positive that the lies replicated about fat people through the media, are in fact lies."
      Posted Jan 23, 2023
      The Whale (2022) Cate Young "I shouldn’t ask because I know the answer, but why are filmmakers [...] so blind to the fact that it is the prejudices reinforced by lazy narratives like these that do us the most harm?"
      Posted Dec 16, 2022
      Elvis (2022) Cate Young "Elvis may be the most Baz Lurhmann, Baz Lurhmann has ever been. And it’s hard to imagine there’s any way for him to top himself from here."
      Posted Dec 15, 2022
      Women Talking (2022) Cate Young "Polley’s script deftly conveys the enormous weight of the impossible choice these women have been tasked with making. The extent of the harm that has been done to them is terrifying to behold."
      Posted Dec 10, 2022
      West Side Story (2021) Cate Young "There’s no way to get around the fact that Spielberg’s West Side Story is a modern masterpiece. In a year chock full of live-action musicals, this one rises above the rest."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Resurrection (2022) Cate Young "A psychological thriller that earns the label, Resurrection is a chilling look at the dynamics of intimate partner abuse."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      My Old School (2022) Cate Young "The real hook here is the collective memory of this unique class of schoolmates, and how the experience shaped their lives. It’s kooky, funny, and endlessly enjoyable."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Sharp Stick (2022) Cate Young "This new entry into her directorial canon is a lazy, borderline offensive screed that struggles towards coherence and never achieves it."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Lucy and Desi (2022) Cate Young "It is a lovely portrait of a pioneering showbiz couple, that could only have been handled by a director with the reverence that Poehler demonstrates."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Master (2022) Cate Young "Diallo has a deft handle on the film’s tone and atmosphere, expertly creating the playground for her characters’ fears to manifest. But she never closes the loop on the narrative itself, leading to an unsatisfying and confounding end."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Nothing Compares (2022) Cate Young "Another entry into the ever-growing pantheon of films about women who are owed an apology, Nothing Compares is extremely effective at laying out how Sinead O’Connor found her moral conviction, and why she never abandoned it."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Fresh (2022) Cate Young "While the execution leaves room for minor improvements, Fresh is a highly commendable debut."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      The Lost Daughter (2021) Cate Young "The film is brilliant at parsing the dual sin of reluctant motherhood. In The Lost Daughter, love is not unconditional, but it doesn’t mean it isn’t there."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      CODA (2021) Cate Young "CODA is sweet, sincere and genuinely funny in parts, and it’s precisely the kind of coming-of-age film that we should hope to see more of. "
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      The Suicide Squad (2021) Cate Young "There is so little that is new or surprising in this genre, that it takes true innovation to get anywhere close to the inventiness that makes these films truly sing."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Silent Night (2021) Cate Young "Silent Night is a darkly funny take on the inevitability of climate collapse and the fecklessness of the world’s powers in the face of combatting a problem of their own making."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      The Matrix Resurrections (2021) Cate Young "Resurrections is a film that argues against its own existence while bringing new weight to a universe that has captivated audiences for two decades."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Tick, Tick... Boom! (2021) Cate Young "The film is beautifully rendered and expertly crafted. The immense research effort involved in this endeavor is readily apparent, and Miranda shows his work at every step of the way."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Knocking (2021) Cate Young "Knocking is gripping, and yet the suspense is so mundane it’s almost boring. But Kempff knows what she’s doing. Each time the audience might be inclined to drift, she pulls them back in, feeding new morsels to the line."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Jerrod Carmichael: Rothaniel (2022) Cate Young "With skill and urgency, Carmichael creates a truth that reflects not just himself, but the painful pasts we all share — and figures out how to not be as sick as his secrets."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Pleasure (2021) Cate Young "Thyberg — along with her star Sofia Kappel — creates a swirling tale of intoxication, agency and exploitation that focuses squarely on the desires of her protagonist."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Turning Red (2022) Cate Young "Turning Red rejects this progression of events as a birthright, and allows Meilin the agency to choose her own path and lean into the difference that makes her special. It’s a truly stunning execution of a much-needed message."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      Athena (2022) Cate Young "Despite its melancholy, Athena is a true feat of filmmaking. It is awesome in the true sense of the word."
      Posted Nov 19, 2022
      She Said (2022) Cate Young Schrader repeatedly makes the haunting choice to stop the film’s momentum dead in its tracks whenever they succeed in getting one of Weinstein’s victims to speak, lingering on the profundity of the way he entirely derailed their lives.
      Posted Nov 18, 2022
      Belle (2021) Zosha Millman A little bit Apple shareholder meeting; a little Social Network; a dash of Disney Princess, and a massive helping of technofuturist anime possibility.
      Posted May 13, 2022
      Dual (2022) Zosha Millman Dual is certainly not the type of movie that would appeal to everyone. But there’s something, dare I say, nice buried in the story of a woman studying for a year about how she can kill her identical copy.
      Posted May 13, 2022
      Last Night in Soho (2021) Zosha Millman Last Night in Soho is exactly the kind of movie you want to be watching, right up to the point you dont.
      Posted Apr 05, 2022
      The Tragedy of Macbeth (2021) Zosha Millman The world of The Tragedy of Macbeth is a stark one, colored in with shadows. Its hermetic and stage-y a strength, I think. Here we see how the bounds of Shakespeare, film, and acting swell to tell such a story.
      Posted Apr 05, 2022
      The Power of the Dog (2021) Zosha Millman Campion understands that the experience of this movie for each character was a different one a psychological horror, a hopeful tale of redemption, maybe even a dawning appreciation and each one gets the end they were always headed to.
      Posted Apr 05, 2022
      Deep Water (2022) Zosha Millman Were it better written there might at least be some drama to the whole affair (even if their sexual games feel far from lurid), but in its battle to feel promiscuous and dangerous it feels like neither.
      Posted Apr 05, 2022
      Hustlers (2019) Zosha Millman Memory is notoriously tricky, and an absolute gas to play around with in film. And yet, like so much in Hustlers and beyond, Jennifer Lopez makes it look easy.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (2021) Zosha Millman I wanted Snake Eyes to be the sleeper hit of the summer. Instead we have an overcooked studio hodgepodge, hoping to be so many things and ultimately being nothing of consequence at all.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      Zola (2020) Zosha Millman Its fair to say that truth is often stranger than fiction. But Zola supposes that fiction can find greater truth yet.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      Reminiscence (2021) Zosha Millman Reminiscence is full of desperate people saying maudlin things, packing in as much exposition as mechanically as they can.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      The Last Duel (2021) Zosha Millman The Last Duel is certainly smart enough to satisfy. For those who see its game and hope it has something more to say than what it is, heres hoping this isnt the final word.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      Wild Indian (2021) Zosha Millman Its Greyeyes who stands out to me the most. His character is like few in the canon, navigating so many emotional and physical layers with such magnanimous, haunting ease.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      No Time to Die (2021) Zosha Millman There is something to sitting and taking in the whole of Bonds machismo across No Time To Die, as it stretches and unfurls. You see the cracks Craig has worked to put in his foundation, his hardheadedness and fragility.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      Rebel Hearts (2021) Zosha Millman In between all the scattered gathering of information and clippings, Rebel Hearts loses the heart of its story: the women themselves.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      How It Ends (2021) Zosha Millman Its strange how, through taking massive leaps, How It Ends ends up far away from our current reality and yet frighteningly close to it.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      House of Gucci (2021) Zosha Millman Ultimately, the film is just on the worse side of fine. Most tragic of all, its just boring. And it just seems like theres something terribly wrong with that.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      Being the Ricardos (2021) Zosha Millman Its focus keeps it from dipping into too many cliches, and it manages to make its point sometimes artfully, if also hamfistedly. ... It was hard work, and for all its dramatism Being the Ricardos seeks to honor that.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      Living (2022) Zosha Millman Nighy, whose knack for playing button up British men has been used to great effect as both a spoil and a sport, is transcendent. He is the personification of bureaucratic management struggling to remember what there is outside of those confines.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      Good Luck to You, Leo Grande (2022) Zosha Millman Leo Grande wins out in the end, for being as charming as it is, but among all the cute healing there is a sense it could be a little more if it wanted to.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      Fire of Love (2022) Zosha Millman Fire of Love is a precious film that captures a lifes work that was always in service of never capturing the whole picture.
      Posted Feb 03, 2022
      Call Jane (2022) Zosha Millman Call Jane renders the story and all its dangers therein far more facile than it deserves to be.
