Us (2019) Taylor Antrim It's a funhouse of conflicting narratives... insists that you see it seen again. EDIT
Posted Mar 21, 2019
The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley (2019) Bridget Read But where the film loses any potency it might have had is in emphasizing the nobility of Holmes's professed mission. EDIT
Posted Mar 19, 2019
High Flying Bird (2019) Taylor Antrim The movie is taut and clever, but it never soars with emotion; it's too busy talking over itself, filling the air with ideas. EDIT
Posted Feb 12, 2019
Fyre Fraud (2019) Bridget Read Consider it a valuably intelligent contribution to the grifter discourse. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2019
Fyre (2019) Taylor Antrim Plays like a thriller. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2019
Sweet Home Alabama (2002) Steff Yotka A classic tale of deception and the American Dream, this movie has everything. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2019
The Holiday (2006) Bridget Read Who cares if the housing-swap conceit makes little to no sense? EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2019
Set It Up (2018) Ella Riley-Adams An ideal feel-good, laugh-out-loud rom-com. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2019
Made of Honor (2008) Alessandra Codinha Essentially an inverse My Best Friend's Wedding, only with slightly more sight gags, certainly more hijinks, a lot of largely impenetrable Scottish accents. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2019
Last Holiday (2006) Ella Riley-Adams It's the perfect feel-good story blessed by the comedic timing of Queen Latifah and the adorable face of LL Cool J. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2019
13 Going on 30 (2004) Janelle Okwodu It's silly fun with a soundtrack full of 1980s hits and plenty of ridiculous fashion. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2019
To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) Bridget Read Not a moment will cause you emotional turmoil, except maybe some swooning. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2019
Vice (2018) Corey Seymour Vice as a whole is punchy, eccentric, and intermittently head-scratching and hilarious. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2018
Manbiki kazoku (2018) Chloe Schama Shoplifters is an astonishing, heartbreaking film that offers no easy answers to the questions that it raises. EDIT
Posted Nov 29, 2018
The House That Jack Built (2018) Chloe Schama Shoplifters is an astonishing, heartbreaking film that offers no easy answers to the questions that it raises. EDIT
Posted Nov 28, 2018
The Christmas Chronicles (2018) Vogue Staff The film simply doesn't have the je ne sais quoi of its peers-that literal "I don't know what this is" feeling you simply must get from watching a good original Netflix holiday movie. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2018
The Holiday Calendar (2018) Vogue Staff Kat Graham (of The Vampire Diaries) brings almost too many acting chops for a good holiday rom-com, but the film is still cheerily nonsensical. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2018
The Princess Switch (2018) Vogue Staff Combines The Parent Trap with It Takes Two and Roman Holiday (and The Great British Baking Show?) to create even more mindless holiday viewing. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2018
A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding (2018) Vogue Staff If you thought the budget was going to be higher for this one, you were (thankfully) dead wrong. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2018
Suspiria (2018) Taylor Antrim I defy you to take any delight in Suspiria, or to explain what on earth is going on in that final set piece... EDIT
Posted Nov 8, 2018
Burning (2018) John Powers [Lee Chang-dong] wins three performances that, in a fairer world, would all be up for big awards. EDIT
Posted Oct 26, 2018
Remastered: Who Shot The Sheriff (2018) Corey Seymour Behind the Music this (thankfully) is not. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2018
22 July (2018) Taylor Antrim A stirring, profoundly moving film and further sign that Netflix is finally taking its original content seriously. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
Maria by Callas: In Her Own Words (2017) Alessandra Codinha Performances... are played in their entirety and much to the film's benefit-to see Callas perform is to comprehend the power she held over both an audience and an art form. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2018
Bad Reputation (2018) Corey Seymour A kind of sleeper triumph. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2018
Matangi/Maya/M.I.A. (2018) Corey Seymour Much like the artist itself, the film remains frustratingly opaque-seemingly made more to push buttons and raise questions than to offer insight or perspective. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2018
Sympathy for the Devil (1968) Corey Seymour It's maddening because these scenes are intercut with bizarre, free-floating art pieces featuring black radicals reading revolutionary tracts in apocalyptic junkyard sets, among other almost abstract distractions. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2018
Hold the Dark (2018) Taylor Antrim This is unlike any movie I've seen in some time, an art film that takes risks at every turn, and if Netflix is in the business of financing risk-taking, god bless them. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2018
American Woman (2018) John Powers American Woman is the kind of movie that doesn't sound very seductive (who wants to see a mother deal with a child who vanishes?), but this is the greatest role of Miller's career, and she rises to the occasion, and nails it. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2018
If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) John Powers Where Moonlight had a light, original touch, If Beale Street Could Talk is weighed down with a slow, prettified style and with music that's asked to do too much. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2018
Roma (2018) John Powers Brilliantly conceived, beautifully acted, politically aware, and profoundly true-especially about the labyrinthine emotional relationship between domestic workers and their masters. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2018
Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) John Powers A revelatory performance by McCarthy in a role unlike the ones that made her a star... reveals a whole new emotional depth, a secret raw melancholy that has previously remained hidden in her work. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
Vox Lux (2018) John Powers Brash, wildly inventive, and occasionally assaultive. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
The Front Runner (2018) John Powers Reitman aspires to something of an Altmanesque sweep, putting Hart and his wife, Lee (Vera Farmiga, tremendously good), at the center of a circus. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
Transit (2018) John Powers This stylistic strategy works beautifully, heightening the unsettling unreality of Georg's life on the run and suggesting that this WWII-era story about immigrants fleeing oppression is relevant to the experience of immigrants right now. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
Beautiful Boy (2018) John Powers The one undeniable reason to see Beautiful Boy is Chalamet, who brings the same emotional transparency that he brought to Elio in Call Me by Your Name, but does it playing a wildly different character. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
Destroyer (2018) John Powers I never thought I'd ever seen Kidman pistol-whip somebody! And that's only part of what she does in this movie. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
A Star Is Born (2018) John Powers Cooper and Lady Gaga pull off a remarkable feat-they not only make you believe the characters are actually falling in love. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
Kusama: Infinity (2018) Chloe Schama The forces behind Kusama: Infinity probably realized they didn't have to strain too hard to make the case for this singular, brilliant artist. She'd already made it for herself. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2018
Swiped: Hooking Up in the Digital Age (2018) Bridget Read At some point while watching Swiped, it occurred to me that Sales has probably never been on Tinder-I can't prove this, but she doesn't approach it like she's ever been a user. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2018
Skate Kitchen (2018) Eve MacSweeney It dwells on female friendships that defy the usual simplistic conventions... Everybody should see this movie and relish the interesting and adorable characters it delivers. EDIT
Posted Aug 10, 2018
Like Father (2018) Alessandra Codinha About as refreshing as a spin down one of those wave-skimming behemoths' topside waterslides: It's pretty silly, but it also feels kind of great, and hey, it's really hot out. EDIT
Posted Aug 3, 2018
Nico, 1988 (2017) Eve MacSweeney Amazingly, this movie, which stars the brilliant Danish actress Trine Dyrholm, manages to cut through Nico's carefully crafted mask. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2018
The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) Eve MacSweeney [Susanna Fogel] has merged the language of chick flicks with the adrenalin-fueled conventions of a spy thriller without losing either male or female audiences along the way. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2018
Mission: Impossible -- Fallout (2018) Taylor Antrim The relative lack of CGI, the way bodies run and leap and climb and slam into things in this movie makes you catch your breath. EDIT
Posted Jul 26, 2018
Generation Wealth (2018) Chloe Schama The documentary doesn't exactly flounder-its images are too vibrant and its characters too sharp-elbowed for that. EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2018
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) Bridget Read It's the only pure good thing out there right now that knows exactly what the world outside is: filth, so why resemble anything like it? EDIT
Posted Jul 20, 2018
Three Identical Strangers (2018) Julia Felsenthal Wardle metes out details slowly, with an eye toward suspense, pacing the story almost like a psychological thriller. EDIT
Posted Jun 29, 2018
This Is Home: A Refugee Story (2018) Eve MacSweeney Shiva, in this quiet, thoughtful film, has given us a gift in laying bare the extremity of their transition. The more she illuminates the nuances, the better we see. EDIT
Posted Jun 22, 2018
Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist (2018) Corey Seymour Began as a love letter and ended up being a cri de coeur. EDIT
