Rating Title/Year Author
Chulas Fronteras (1976) Richard von Busack Despite the exuberance of the beat, Chulas Fronteras doesn't neglect the political side of life. Key to this film is the problem of crossing a line that, as Octavio Paz wrote, is not a border, but a scar. EDIT

Honeyland (2019) Richard von Busack Hatidze trusted the filmmakers. Perhaps she was unclear on the concept of what movies are, living as she does in a stone-floored house without electricity or plumbing. And Kotevska and Stefanov honored Hatidze. EDIT

The Biggest Little Farm (2018) Richard von Busack Chester's film induces a rare tranquility with its rapturous images of wild creatures... The search for balance gives this film tension, and it's gratifying to see the old ways working. EDIT

Captain Marvel (2019) Richard von Busack Despite some starchy Louisiana heartland sequences, this is an effective fantasy of power used with grace and without arrogance. EDIT

Stan & Ollie (2018) Richard von Busack J‌on S. Baird's biopic Stan & Ollie has a certain inflationary quality, regarding the appeal of a comedy team in their sunset years. But in lovingly recreating Laurel and Hardy's mid-1950s tour of Britain, it's a film with lots of charm. EDIT

Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018) Richard von Busack Nanette isn't for someone who wants to laugh a lung out, and yet it's something everyone should see. EDIT

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Richard von Busack Certainly one of the most romantic of the 10 films so far. But it's also spotted with doughy patches, heavy info dumps and battle scenes that aren't quite coherent. EDIT

Deadpool 2 (2018) Richard von Busack The film is not as overfilling as the first Deadpool, and from a nerd standpoint it has a little more respect for the chrome giant Colossus than its predecessor. EDIT

Disobedience (2017) Richard von Busack Chile's Sebastián Lelio exemplifies the best talents of a women's director: the empathy, the ability to dramatize without soaking in cheap emotion and the expert use of the close-up shot. EDIT

A Beautiful Day (2017) Richard von Busack Director Lynne Ramsay cuts away anything thrilling, or even compelling. It's a vigilante movie so aestheticized that it loses its energy - knuckle sandwiches with the crusts cut off, served on a doily. EDIT

1945 (2017) Richard von Busack The fateful year 1945 may seem like the distant past, but this movie is timely. EDIT
