Posted Apr 8, 2019
Saint Judy (2018) Diane Carson Director Sean Hanish and writer Dmitry Portnoy both have their values in the right place. What they lack is an elegant dramatization of their ideas without a didactic subtext. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
Yardie (2018) Diane Carson The pace editor Justine Wrights sets keeps the action clipping along, with some striking cross cutting. And yet, over all, Yardie feels for all the world like a familiar ride to nowhere new. EDIT

Apollo 11 (2019) Diane Carson Detail after detail astonished and delighted me. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019

Posted Nov 21, 2018
What They Had (2018) Martha K. Baker Under [Elizabeth] Chomko's direction, 'What They Had' not only has the chaos of dementia down pat but also proceeds at a pace that wastes no time developing the narrative. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2018
Johnny English Strikes Again (2018) Martha K. Baker David Kerr's crafty direction wisely moves fire and explosions offstage or into the background. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2018
Beautiful Boy (2018) Martha K. Baker As an actor, Chalamet is well-matched with Steve Carell, who vacillates from understanding to worried. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2018
A Private War (2018) Martha K. Baker Rosamund Pike, so effective in A United Kingdom, Hostiles, and Gone Girl, brings Colvin's brilliant words to life in voice-overs. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2018
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Martha K. Baker Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald weighs heavily and can be hard to follow, with very little comic relief. Still it's pretty fantastic -- that is, both pretty and a fantasy. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2018
Viper Club (2018) Martha K. Baker The cast, comprising good actors from Sarandon to Edie Falco to St. Louis-native Matt Bomer, might have elevated the performances above the words on the page. They do not. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2018
Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Martha K. Baker Bohemian Rhapsody -- a biography, a musical, a history -- succeeds on all fronts whether Freddie Mercury is an unfamiliar face or the object of long fandom. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2018
Boy Erased (2018) Diane Carson Above all, however, Lucas Hedges as Jared carries the film, more often watching and subtly reacting rather than overplaying his own heartache moving to acceptance. EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2018

Posted Nov 7, 2018
Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) Diane Carson McCarthy said she purposely resisted toning down Lee's antisocial, caustic, angry and miserable attributes.

Posted Nov 2, 2018
All About Nina (2018) Diane Carson Only Common as Rafe offers the energy and appeal that consistently buoys this character study. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2018
