Nose (2020) Anne Brodie The jarring music track is problematic, too bold and fashion showy for this mediation on scent, but as it's subtitled, it can be watched muted. EDIT

Posted Feb 12, 2021
Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) Anne Brodie The consistent surrealism is exciting and hilarious but I can't get those squeaky voices out of my head. EDIT
Posted Feb 12, 2021
Supernova (2020) Anne Brodie It's sad and illuminating, and not easy. Elegantly, compassionately directed by Harry Macqueen who was inspired by close friends' illnesses. EDIT
Posted Feb 12, 2021
Judas and the Black Messiah (2021) Anne Brodie It's an intriguing story, heartbreaking and unfathomable, but it happened; [Shaka] King's film lets no one off the hook. Kudos to Dominique Fishback who so movingly plays Hampton's partner. EDIT
Posted Feb 12, 2021

Posted Feb 5, 2021
Penguin Bloom (2020) Anne Brodie It's heavy on the treacle but moving, nonetheless. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2021
Palmer (2021) Anne Brodie [Fisher] Steven's direction is natural and organic, and subtle, things are left unsaid, giving space to the film's emotional heft, telling a story that could have collapsed under sentimental weight. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2021

Posted Jan 29, 2021

Posted Jan 22, 2021
Baby Done (2020) Anne Brodie Zoe's as charming and relatable as it gets but her blind spot is never explained, and her self-defeating behaviour continues unchecked. Good thing she's so funny and the film's so entertaining. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2021
Preparations to be Together for an Unknown Period of Time (2021) Anne Brodie It takes its time, in its moody, way without even a hint of commercial, conventional Hollywood cliche. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2021

Posted Jan 15, 2021

Posted Jan 15, 2021

Posted Jan 8, 2021

Posted Jan 8, 2021
Kajillionaire (2020) Anne Brodie It's smart, original and just out there enough to be both profound and wacko. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2021

Posted Jan 4, 2021
News of the World (2020) Anne Brodie It's a conventional film, but raised by Hanks' presence and his character's grace and decency, and by the outstanding performance from gifted German child star Helena Zengel. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2020
Roald Dahl's The Witches (2020) Anne Brodie Despite all, there's delight in the wonderful 60's costumes and art design and in Spencer's dignified strength and warmth. Get an early look at Bruno who could be at the start of a big career. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2020
Pieces of a Woman (2020) Anne Brodie Gripping and intimate. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2020
Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Anne Brodie The superhero format of the last 15 years is adhered to, the same special effects, style, the tropes, arcs, hoping to attract with familiarity. There's no unique vision or spirit. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2020

Posted Dec 28, 2020

Posted Dec 18, 2020
Wild Mountain Thyme (2020) Anne Brodie Sweet but not saccharin, a bit corny, and loaded with Ireland's green appeal. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2020

Posted Dec 18, 2020

Posted Dec 11, 2020
The Prom (2020) Anne Brodie [There are] some ill-judged moments like Cordon's sudden effeminate turn, the stereotypical Mean Girls subplot, and more. However, the song and dance numbers are fabulous. EDIT
