Light From Light (2019) Angela L. Harmon 'Light from Light' worked with a light and careful hand to craft a sense of existential ennui that's hard to do without becoming overbearing. EDIT

Midsommar (2019) Angela L. Harmon The implication that an audience's emotions should be wrenched out rather than coaxed out is as arrogant as 'Midsommar' is self-indulgent. EDIT

Yesterday (2019) Angela L. Harmon Yesterday knows exactly how charming it is, and toes the line of being "too much" so deftly it's basically dancing on it. EDIT

On the Basis of Sex (2018) Angela L. Harmon 'On the Basis of Sex' failed to find and use the fortitude of its subject, rather relying on the convention of "humble beginnings" and sucked all the air out of its own story. EDIT

The Wife (2017) Angela L. Harmon Why doesn't Joan's movie know that she's more than a victim? Especially when she also says things like "I don't want to be thought of as the long-suffering wife," and is given scant opportunities to prove herself otherwise? EDIT
