      You Hurt My Feelings (2023) Dana Stevens Holofcener is a writer-director in the truest sense, a filmmaker whose movies stand out for the attention they pay to nuances of everyday speech and behavior.

      Occupied City (2023) Sam Adams It’s an attempt to find a new way of keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive, as the people who remember it firsthand disappear.

      The Zone of Interest (2023) Sam Adams The digital cinematography is harsh and glaring, so sharp that it rakes at your eyes. Already, we’re seeing more than we want to.

      Hannah Gadsby: Something Special (2023) Imogen West-Knights It may be a less revolutionary kind of vulnerability than we saw in Nanette. But it’s nice to see Gadsby reveling in something of a happy ending. Or, if not a happy ending, a happy middle of the story.

      Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023) Nadira Goffe In addition to being the darkest, goriest, and most disturbing Marvel movie, it’s also a contender for the funniest.

      Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. (2023) Dana Stevens Craig’s 2016 debut The Edge of Seventeen established her as a keenly observant chronicler of adolescence. With Margaret, she takes that skill to the next level of difficulty...

      John Mulaney: Baby J (2023) Imogen West-Knights It’s funny. Mulaney has very much still got it.

      Paint (2023) Dana Stevens This could have been the setup for a terrific workplace comedy if McAdams’ script didn’t seem at every turn to blunt the edge of its own satire.

      Air (2023) Jack Hamilton Air is thoroughly entertaining, even if it never really maximizes its alluring potential.

      Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023) Sam Thielman As an adaptation of the source material, I think it’s probably not too grand to say that it works perfectly.

      Problemista (2023) Cat Cardenas An imaginative, impressive, not to mention hilarious debut...

      Cocaine Bear (2023) Tyler Austin Harper In an atmosphere in which it is all too easy to feel suffocated by climate anxiety, Elizabeth Banks’ film cuts through our ecological malaise.

      Emily (2022) Laura Miller [Brontë] deserves more than this biopic’s utter lack of interest in the very thing that made her immortal. Emily is a movie about “writing” that’s forgotten how to read.

      Godzilla (1998) David Edelstein What the new, monstrously budgeted Godzilla brings home is that size doesn’t matter -- that tacky crudeness harnessed to a real vision can have more brute power than all the state-of-the-art computer wizardry that Hollywood’s money can buy.

      Magic Mike's Last Dance (2023) Dana Stevens To the disappointment of this once-enthusiastic ogler, Magic Mike’s Last Dance fails to capture the eponymous magic of the first two very different but both delightful movies.

      Knock at the Cabin (2023) Sam Adams Although some of the movie’s changes were inevitable and the book is hardly some sacrosanct masterwork, the disruption of the story’s final act makes the movie feel incoherent at best.
      Posted Feb 04, 2023
      80 for Brady (2023) Heather Schwedel It’s one thing to peddle this sort of puffery—which, lest we forget, is also part of a much larger machine of brainwashing about the NFL as an institution—but to use Rita Moreno and Lily Tomlin as human shields? I will not tolerate it.
      Posted Feb 03, 2023
      Past Lives (2023) Sam Adams January isn’t usually the time to start making Top 10 lists, but I can already confidently put Past Lives on mine.
      Posted Jan 27, 2023
      The Big Lebowski (1998) Alex Ross Do these enormously talented filmmakers show a moral failing?... I think they do. Their sin is pride. The Coens have reached a stage where they no longer question their ideas or flesh them out.
      Posted Jan 20, 2023
      Babylon (2022) Dana Stevens Chazelle can be weirdly inattentive to the overall structure of a movie’s narrative, so that, while never boring, Babylon winds up being exhausting.

      Avatar: The Way of Water (2022) Dana Stevens The beauty of the world... evoked in lush detail by cinematographer Russell Carpenter, is enough, most of the time, to make you forgive the hokiness of the screenplay by Cameron, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.

      Nothing Compares (2022) Tim Grierson Nothing Compares doesn’t spend much time on Classic Albums-style deep dives into how this guitar riff came together or what inspired that ballad, preferring an emotional snapshot to a traditional rock-doc portrait.

      Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie (2021) Nadira Goffe MAPPA, who is praised for its quality animation, really went all out for this one.

      Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio (2022) Sam Adams Del Toro finds in this oft-told tale both the heart that has allowed it to endure for so long and an idiosyncratic connection that makes his version feel new.

      The Whale (2022) Dana Stevens [A] peculiar and often deeply unpleasant movie...

      Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (2022) Dana Stevens Johnson’s twist-packed script and sight-gag-packed frame offer something few contemporary blockbusters do: attunement to the audience’s emotional response in the moment.
      Posted Nov 21, 2022
      Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) Dana Stevens To a much greater degree than I would have thought possible, Wakanda Forever is a gajillion-dollar comic-book blockbuster about something as complex and interior as the act of female mourning, split among at least four different strong woman protagonists.

      Weird: The Al Yankovic Story (2022) Dana Stevens An appropriately goofy tribute to its subject and co-creator: a movie parody about the life of a parodist.
      Posted Nov 03, 2022
      The Banshees of Inisherin (2022) Dana Stevens The Banshees of Inisherin’s greatest gift to its audience is its refusal to turn its eccentric, intimate story into an allegory for anything other than what it is: the sad tale of an abruptly interrupted friendship in a beautiful, isolated place.

      Tár (2022) Dana Stevens The adjectives that come to mind to describe Tár apply also to its protagonist: Todd Field’s third film is magisterial, enigmatic, self-contradictory, and wickedly seductive.

      Moonage Daydream (2022) Carl Wilson The grist is often great... but their potency can’t survive being mashed and VFX’d into a two-hour-and-20-minute music video. What could?

      Blonde (2022) Dana Stevens It’s an astonishing feat of performance that, sadly, feels set adrift in a hollow and dramatically inert movie that disserves both the actor and the character she plays.

      The People's Joker (2022) Sam Adams It’s a sight to see–or it will be, if anyone ever sees it again.

      Bullet Train (2022) Dana Stevens At a moment in his career when Pitt seems to be contemplating how to transition to a third act, it is to be hoped he will consider a different means of transportation next time.

      Sharp Stick (2022) Dana Stevens Dunham’s provocations here feel as unsubtle as the pokey implement of the title.

      Nope (2022) Dana Stevens Perhaps it’s fated that a movie with ambitions [this] big would fall short of accomplishing all it sets out to do. But along the way Peele gives us one hell of a spectacle.

      Where the Crawdads Sing (2022) Laura Miller The same ethical solipsism that enabled Owens’ past adventures abroad presides over Crawdads, and Newman’s film can’t escape it, either.
      Posted Jul 15, 2022
      Persuasion (2022) Dana Stevens A soggy mess of limp rom-com clichés that does a disservice not only to Austen but to all her contemporary inheritors, from Cher Horowitz to Bridget Jones.

      Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) Dana Stevens Given the formulaic nature of the Marvel Studios house style, Waititi has crafted a successful if less than world-shaking sequel to his memorable Marvel debut.

      Fire of Love (2022) Sam Adams [A] thrilling, moving documentary...

      Elvis (2022) Jack Hamilton The most anachronistic element of Elvis is its cloying need to assure us that its hero was a good person, as if trying to preemptively counter some imagined onslaught of TikToks about why Elvis Presley is problematic.

      Marcel the Shell with Shoes On (2021) Dana Stevens Marcel the Shell with Shoes On struck me as an animated film like no other I can recall.

      Spiderhead (2022) Laura Miller Soon... it becomes obvious that this film won’t have the courage of Saunders’ story.

      Lightyear (2022) Dana Stevens Family audiences with no grand expectations that their Saturday afternoon matinee viewing constitute great art will have a fine time watching Buzz and his pals zip from infinity to beyond and back.

      RRR (2022) Nitish Pahwa RRR is maximum cinema, the kind of in-your-face, colorful, fiery, loud, awe-inspiring experience you really can only get from the movies.

      The Janes (2022) Dana Stevens Not only a crucial part of the historical record but a searingly contemporary film about the power of mutual aid and collective action.

      Crimes of the Future (2022) Dana Stevens Our modern anxiety over everyday lives that are ever more suffused by technology... has rarely been expressed with such simplicity and intuitive rightness.

      808 (2015) Jack Hamilton A fittingly quirky and lively documentary.

      Top Gun: Maverick (2022) Dana Stevens No wheels are reinvented (though one pair does get sheared off a plane’s landing gear by a barely cleared mountain), but the dialogue charms, the aerial sequences soar, and the two hours and 17 minutes of runtime speed by at (forgive me) Mach 10.
      Posted May 26, 2022
      Mariupolis 2 (2022) Sam Adams A ragged, inevitably imperfect movie whose unfinished qualities... convey both the disruptions of war and the tragically truncated nature of the film’s own creation.
