  • A film of genuine surprises and tiny delights, even though it bogs down and loses its urgency when the quest that drives it falls into the background.

    June 27, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Umrika" gets too distracted by unnecessary sidelines when it could be focusing on its intensely likable characters and investing in its own intriguing concepts.

    February 5, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • There are moments of comedy, of eternal sadness, hope, and emptiness. The varying ranges are impressive.
