Carnage (2011) Felicia Feaster The linchpin of the drama is fairly one-note: beneath civility lies cruelty. And there is perhaps a bit too much New Yorker-style, upper-middle self-satisfaction in that rather thin insight. EDIT

Crazy Horse (2011) Felicia Feaster As with nearly all of Wiseman's films, Crazy Horse is a narcotic, fly-on-the-wall immersion in the rhythms and predilections of a peculiar industry. EDIT

The Glass Castle (2017) Felicia Feaster [D]espite its flaws, The Glass Castle... connects powerfully to what it feels like to be a child when adults make all the rules. EDIT

mother! (2017) Felicia Feaster The film can at times feel like a short story Botoxed into existence with an infusion of Hollywood money and special effects. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2020
Human Flow (2017) Felicia Feaster Ai's film, like his art, moves in contrapuntal stanzas between showing the scale of the immigration crisis and its individual victims. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2020
The Square (2017) Felicia Feaster [A] wickedly funny and insightful film. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2020
BPM (Beats Per Minute) (2017) Felicia Feaster Far from simply an "issue" film, BPM is an incisive, moving portrait of what it feels like to occupy its subjects' skin, to feel a sense of both acute sexual ecstasy and love and also a powerful, encroaching doom. EDIT

Tom of Finland (2017) Felicia Feaster For Tom of Finland, sex is freedom and the artist's empowered gay superheroes perpetually young, never encumbered by performance anxiety or condemnation, frolicking in a dream world expression of a longed-for reality. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2020
78/52 (2017) Felicia Feaster [A] cineaste's dream. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2020
Leaning Into the Wind: Andy Goldsworthy (2017) Felicia Feaster It is clear from watching Leaning Into the Wind that, for Goldsworthy, the labor, the action is as much a pleasure as the concept or the end result. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2020
Happy End (2017) Felicia Feaster [A] disturbing treatise on family and institutional corruption. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
Liyana (2017) Felicia Feaster An innovative blend of animated storytelling and traditional documentary. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
Generation Wealth (2018) Felicia Feaster Generation Wealth is an unsatisfyingly superficial crash course in that enduring idea, a kind of omnibus of the photographer's fixations coalesced into one top-heavy, meandering production. EDIT

Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) Felicia Feaster Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot fits squarely into Van Sant's Good Will Hunting mode of mainstream feel good entertainments with a whiff of wackiness. It's like rainbow jimmies sprinkled on white bread. EDIT

Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist (2018) Felicia Feaster Westwood may be intriguing for fashion types, punk-rockers and fans of septuagenarian women with potty mouths and trophy husbands, but it may be a harder sell for cinephiles who like their docs with a little more revelation. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
BlacKkKlansman (2018) Felicia Feaster There's the sense that Lee is seeing our present reality not as a reason to give up hope but to remind Americans of the stakes, to rally them to take back their country from those who would make it 1953 again. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) Felicia Feaster But Velvet Buzzsaw's fatal flaw may be that it quickly shifts from satire... into an R.L. Stine Goosebumps plot. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable (2018) Felicia Feaster A tour through Winogrand's unique sensibility and a changing America, the film charts a career now enshrined in the canon of photography but which was, like most artists' lives, more difficult in the living. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2018
Burning (2018) Felicia Feaster A deeply affecting story with universal resonance about loss and longing and defined by director Lee Chang-dong's unique point of view. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2018

Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat (2017) Felicia Feaster This potent love letter to Basquiat is also a Proustian remembrance of things past and a pre-gentrification New York City, where anything seemed possible. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
Charlotte Rampling: The Look (2011) Felicia Feaster A flawed but compelling documentary, Charlotte Rampling: The Look contemplates the fierce charms of this mystery-drenched icon. EDIT
