Posted Feb 16, 2021

Posted Feb 16, 2021

Posted Feb 15, 2021
Kajillionaire (2020) John Serba Kajillionaire's unapologetic idiosyncrasy means your mileage may vary. But for me, it was a rumination on the complexities of parent-child relationships, on nurture, on how voids, once recognized, can always be filled. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2021

Posted Feb 12, 2021

Posted Feb 12, 2021
The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (2021) Jade Budowski Thanks to its big, open heart and the performances (and chemistry) of its two young stars, the film is more than worth your time. EDIT
Posted Feb 12, 2021
Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) John Serba It all boils down to laughs, and Barb and Star doesn't deliver nearly enough of them. EDIT
Posted Feb 12, 2021

Posted Feb 8, 2021

Posted Feb 7, 2021
