The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (2021) Asia Frey Even though it has teen protagonists, optimists and dreamers of any age will enjoy "The Map of Tiny Perfect Things," a lighthearted lark into an alternate universe that is also entirely recognizable, particularly around here. EDIT

The Dig (2021) Asia Frey The film's pleasures are many, but they are understated... for those with patience, "The Dig" is an exceptionally beautiful film. EDIT

The Little Things (2021) Asia Frey Almost all the shortcomings of the film are balanced out by Denzel Washington's performance. He is simply fun and exciting to watch, even when he's doing some fairly cheesy things, like being haunted by victims or talking to dead bodies in the morgue. EDIT

A Rainy Day in New York (2019) Asia Frey "A Rainy Day in New York" is a witty, star-studded romantic comedy we would think was surprisingly good - if anyone else directed it. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2021
Our Friend (2019) Asia Frey "Our Friend" is a well-written, well-made story, and the script gives these actors so much with which to build their characters. EDIT
Posted Jan 27, 2021
Elsewhere (2019) Asia Frey A wistful misadventure, a quiet but authentic story of personal growth. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
The Personal History of David Copperfield (2019) Asia Frey A dizzyingly eccentric delight, one that manages to be entirely true to the original yet thrillingly fresh. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2021
Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Asia Frey No one was happier than me to see Chris Pine back from the dead as Steve Trevor, but a world-weary Wonder Woman is, to use an '80s term, kind of a bummer. Especially for two and a half hours. EDIT

Save Yourselves! (2020) Asia Frey "Save Yourselves!" feels much more relevant than a pithy, droll comedy about millennials fighting aliens has any right to be. Watch and enjoy it before it goes from comedy to documentary. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2020
Misbehaviour (2020) Asia Frey A nuanced, well-written slice of very colorful history. Some of the conclusions are a bit on the nose, and Greg Kinnear's nose is a bit off, but I'm glad I experienced this story. EDIT
Posted Dec 17, 2020
Uncle Frank (2020) Asia Frey The relationship between Frank and Wally exists so beautifully within this film, I wish I could just watch a movie about them together without the contrivances of Frank's family drama. EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2020
My Octopus Teacher (2020) Asia Frey A beautiful, informative and meditative film experience that will leave you feeling like you have journeyed far away. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2020
Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (2020) Asia Frey Full of sparkles, singing and lots and lots of beautiful plaid, the John Legend-produced confection is - despite the aforementioned singing - not as cheesy as you might expect. EDIT
Posted Nov 30, 2020
Sometimes Always Never (2018) Asia Frey This film is such a strange bird I cannot predict what a viewer's reaction might be, but I think it is worth watching and finding out for yourself. EDIT
Posted Nov 19, 2020
Downhill (2020) Asia Frey It's a bitter little pill, but it worked for me. Proceed with caution and you will be rewarded with an insightful drama. EDIT
Posted Nov 12, 2020
Rebecca (2020) Asia Frey Like the second Mrs. De Winter, the contemporary viewer could enjoy "Rebecca" if freed from the constraints of comparison to a long-lost past. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2020
David Byrne's American Utopia (2020) Asia Frey The experience is simply joyful. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2020
The Glorias (2020) Asia Frey The life story of one extraordinary woman - Gloria Steinem - in the hands of another extraordinary woman - director Julie Taymor - gives us the visually stunning and emotionally probing biopic "The Glorias." EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2020
I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020) Asia Frey I know there is so much there to appreciate - if you can just endure it. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2020
Enola Holmes (2020) Asia Frey Really cute and fun to watch. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2020
Mr. Jones (2019) Asia Frey Mr. Jones is thrilling, sad and above all, well acted. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2020
Irresistible (2020) Asia Frey The movie has its funny moments, but the messaging is super overstated and the premise ends up being fairly simplistic. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2020
The Burnt Orange Heresy (2019) Asia Frey The Burnt Orange Heresy is a tight, smart mystery built on an unusual premise with great actors who are not overexposed. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2020
Get Duked! (2019) Asia Frey This gloriously idiotic misadventure is the perfect ludicrous comedy romp for the right viewer. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2020
The One and Only Ivan (2020) Asia Frey It has whimsy and heart and is emotional but not depressing. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2020
Cut Throat City (2020) Asia Frey Sometimes the machinery of the plot gets a little hard to believe, but our investment in the characters is always there to keep us going despite the somewhat excessive run time. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2020
I Used to Go Here (2020) Asia Frey It rings true in its depiction of the small scale revelations we are sometimes afforded in life, and the characters are sweet and funny, if not always as profound as they might be. EDIT
Posted Aug 20, 2020
The Old Guard (2020) Asia Frey The Old Guard was uneven but exciting, with a premise novel enough to earn a watch. EDIT
Posted Aug 13, 2020
Radioactive (2019) Asia Frey There are lots of different kinds of women, wives and mothers, and "Radioactive" gives the viewer a fascinating portrait of a truly singular person. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2020
The Trip to Greece (2020) Asia Frey Pleasant and diverting, but far from the trip of a lifetime, maybe these two actors are ready for a project with a script and a plot, because they are terrific, but they have started to run out of road. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2020
The Vast of Night (2019) Asia Frey Light on effects, heavy on old-fashioned suspense, this is a clever and satisfying science-fiction debut from director Andrew Patterson. EDIT
Posted Jul 23, 2020
Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020) Asia Frey What made this amiable nonsense watchable for me was Lars' partner, Sigrit, played by Rachel McAdams with an unexpected delicacy that makes their pop duo and this film much better than it should be. EDIT
Posted Jul 16, 2020
Phoenix, Oregon (2019) Asia Frey A soothing but amusing misadventure, this is a nice little dramedy that really hit the spot for me. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2020
Artemis Fowl (2020) Asia Frey The film and Fowl himself lacked a strong identity. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2020
The Lovebirds (2020) Asia Frey Even if you can sort of guess where things are going much of the time, it is still fun to watch them get there. EDIT
Posted Jun 18, 2020
Seberg (2019) Asia Frey Overall, though, this film is little more than a vehicle for Stewart to look gorgeously distraught (which she does well) against an intriguing background story that leaves you wanting to know more. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2020
Judy & Punch (2019) Asia Frey A beautifully realized, hauntingly dark fairy tale, there is also a perversely comic thread running through. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2020
Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics (2020) Asia Frey It's worth watching, but Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics ends up being only half-baked. EDIT
Posted May 28, 2020
How to Build a Girl (2019) Asia Frey It did not come across as a tender look back at a youthful time; it just came across as naive - not a naive character but a naive film. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2020
Extraction (2020) Asia Frey All told, Extraction is a reasonably entertaining, extreme action flick, although you can tell it is more cheaply made than a big-screen movie. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2020
The Gentlemen (2020) Asia Frey It's short, it's funny, Hugh Grant is in it and I thoroughly enjoyed it. EDIT
Posted Apr 30, 2020
Blinded by the Light (2019) Asia Frey Occasionally blinded by its own big heart but is still sweet and affecting. EDIT
Posted Apr 16, 2020
Knives Out (2019) Asia Frey With a perfectly calibrated tone that goes over the top and enjoys every minute, this witty, twisty comedy was vibrant yet macabre and, most importantly, totally engrossing. EDIT
Posted Apr 9, 2020
Onward (2020) Asia Frey Absurdly moving. EDIT
Posted Apr 2, 2020
EMMA. (2020) Asia Frey Emma is a faithful adaptation with sharp teeth and, above all, it is absolutely hilarious. EDIT
Posted Apr 2, 2020
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) Asia Frey So, you can weep gentle tears as you, exhorted by Hanks, think of the ones you love and of Hanks himself. Since we are all sitting tight in our own neighborhoods right now, this is a beautiful way to spend a day. EDIT
Posted Mar 26, 2020
Wild Nights With Emily (2018) Asia Frey This Dickinson is savvy, joyful, loving and, perhaps most surprisingly, portrayed to perfection by Shannon. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2020
The Aeronauts (2019) Asia Frey A movie about the origins of meteorology might sound too niche, but the adventure of two interesting and compassionate friends high in the clouds is universally fascinating, truly suspenseful and visually stunning. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2020
Honey Boy (2019) Asia Frey LaBeouf showed amazing restraint in letting someone else direct it, and the result is an interesting looking, but sometimes hard to watch, coming-of-age tale. EDIT
Posted Feb 27, 2020
Parasite (2019) Asia Frey It is bracing, audacious, jarring, challenging and exciting, a devastating social satire realized with precision and intelligence in every perfectly constructed frame. EDIT
