4/5 Tommaso (2019) Filipe Freitas That's the nature of Ferrara's world; a world where pleasure and pain can't stay apart from each other. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2021
1.5/5 The Midnight Sky (2020) Filipe Freitas This slogging post-apocalyptic fiction composed of space inanity and uninspired snow routes, crawls right toward disappointment... EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2021
4/5 Saint Maud (2019) Filipe Freitas Saint Maude is a visceral piece of cinema... an all-front winner that captivates our attention through arresting imagery, psychological distress and demented moods. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2021
3/5 Driveways (2019) Filipe Freitas Although the languid pace won't serve every viewer's motivation, Ahn manages to give the story a nice simple touch and warm coloration. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2021
3.5/5 Bad Education (2019) Filipe Freitas Jackson gives a tour-de-force performance, portraying Tassone with incredible alertness and spontaneity. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2021
2/5 The Way Back (2020) Filipe Freitas ... we have an ordinary film, respectable in terms of message, but with a superfluous flair for melodrama. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2021
3/5 Sound of Metal (2019) Filipe Freitas ... Marder grabs us, not so much with the vociferous metal music or any type of artistic pose, but rather with an effective sound design and narrative quality. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2021
3/5 Sylvie's Love (2020) Filipe Freitas ... transpiring passion and charm in its initial phase, becomes nearly strangled by melodramatic pressures... EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2021
4.5/5 Soul (2020) Filipe Freitas Clever observations and funny lines deliciously intertwine in a eye-grabbing work of art that is both spiritually rich and terrestrially encouraging. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2021

Posted Jan 2, 2021
3.5/5 Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (2020) Filipe Freitas ... satisfactory results but never detaching completely from its theatrical roots. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2021
3.5/5 Shirley (2020) Filipe Freitas In the end, there's no ambiguity to be found, just pure madness and deception. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2021
3.5/5 Beastie Boys Story (2020) Filipe Freitas ... a fun, nostalgic ride to the idiosyncratic world of the Beasties. No sabotage allowed. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2020
4.5/5 First Cow (2019) Filipe Freitas Evoking the old Western style, this is subtle, intimate cinema devised with pinpoint accuracy, disarming minimalism and arthouse proneness. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2020
2.5/5 The Whistlers (2019) Filipe Freitas I was unimpressed except for the whistling language itself. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2020
3.5/5 Babyteeth (2019) Filipe Freitas Orchestrated with bittersweet notes, this fine Australian coming-of-age drama also takes romance to interesting levels of satisfaction. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2020
2/5 Tesla (2020) Filipe Freitas This loosely adapted biopic never goes in the right direction with its unstylish retro-modern hybridity. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2020
2.5/5 Synchronic (2019) Filipe Freitas In the end, I mourned a dog, turning my back to all the other unremarkable characters. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2020
4/5 Mank (2020) Filipe Freitas ... dense and cathartic at times... with many characters and subtle lines that may not be obvious to the common viewer. Yet, it still exudes an untiring energy all the way through. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2020
2.5/5 Palm Springs (2020) Filipe Freitas Despite of a promising start, Palm Springs runs out of inspiration, settling down in a thousand unremarkable 'wake ups' that lead to nowhere. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2020
3.5/5 The Truth (2019) Filipe Freitas [Koreeda] is normally more interested in conciliate than to set apart. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2020

Posted Dec 13, 2020
3/5 Rifkin's Festival (2020) Filipe Freitas [Allen] sort of gets away with this melting pot of contemporary and classic cinema that plays as inoffensive as warm-hearted. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2020
2/5 Mulan (2020) Filipe Freitas What should have been edgy and thrilling turned into a disappointing routine. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2020

Posted Dec 13, 2020
1/5 Roald Dahl's The Witches (2020) Filipe Freitas This isn't a fun one to watch, and it's not even weird enough to make me like it a little. EDIT
Posted Dec 9, 2020
3/5 Beasts Clawing at Straws (2020) Filipe Freitas ... the film has no dull moments despite of its many dull characters. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2020
3/5 Farewell Amor (2020) Filipe Freitas Gladly, this emotionally-driven immigrant song doesn't feed from tears. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2020
3.5/5 The Outpost (2020) Filipe Freitas ... an unsparing look at the frustrations of fighting against hundreds of invisible enemies armed to their teeth. EDIT
Posted Dec 6, 2020
4/5 David Byrne's American Utopia (2020) Filipe Freitas The visuals are arresting and the music, hit after hit, delivers pivotal messages... EDIT
Posted Dec 6, 2020
2.5/5 Da 5 Bloods (2020) Filipe Freitas Protracted and unpolished, this post-war treasure-hunt film is somewhat repetitive in some of the ideas, and it could have been even worse if it wasn't for Lindo's strong performance. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2020
4/5 Pinocchio (2019) Filipe Freitas Crammed with fantastic creatures and characters, Pinocchio has here its most eccentric version in the hand of Rome-born director Matteo Garrone... EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2020
2.5/5 () Filipe Freitas ... battles for consistency with an approximate number of hits and misses. EDIT
Posted Dec 1, 2020
3.5/5 Love and Monsters (2020) Filipe Freitas More eye-catching than cerebral, this feel-good fantasy, conceived and co-written by Brian Duffiels, provides an amusing session. EDIT
Posted Dec 1, 2020
2/5 Rebecca (2020) Filipe Freitas There's an embarrassing lack of freshness in this remake that will hamper many viewers from being charmed, thrilled or even intrigued... EDIT
Posted Nov 27, 2020
3/5 Kajillionaire (2020) Filipe Freitas It doesn't really get better as it advances but rather maintains the off-kilter procedures. EDIT
Posted Nov 27, 2020
3.5/5 The Nest (2020) Filipe Freitas Can love beat vanity and power? EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2020
2.5/5 On the Rocks (2020) Filipe Freitas With the father playing the child and the daughter playing the adult, the film fell short of my expectations in the end. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2020
3/5 Vampires vs. The Bronx (2019) Filipe Freitas The non-elaborate scenarios and relaxed posture generate a likable indie flavor... EDIT

Posted Nov 14, 2020

Posted Nov 14, 2020

Posted Nov 11, 2020
3/5 Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) Filipe Freitas ... often messy in its ludicrousness, but a trip worth taking... We never know what to expect next, and perverse laughter is inevitable. EDIT
Posted Nov 11, 2020
4/5 The Forty-Year-Old Version (2020) Filipe Freitas Flowing at the right beat, Radha Blank's debut feature is made of honest words, genuine characters, irreverent humor, and raw emotions. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2020
2/5 Digging for Fire (2015) Filipe Freitas The frivolous blend of ludicrous mystery and tepid romance offered in Digging For Fire got me quickly bored. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2020
3.5/5 The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020) Filipe Freitas Even tolerably wobbly in the structure, this film comes in a time where the words 'protest' and 'conspiracy' are most heard. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2020
4/5 Following (1998) Filipe Freitas The film, compellingly written and directed, manages to be provocative in an understated way... EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2020
3.5/5 Enola Holmes (2020) Filipe Freitas ... extremely entertaining, regardless the messy way it was assembled. EDIT
Posted Oct 19, 2020
3/5 Tigertail (2020) Filipe Freitas ... the quiet debut feature of American writer/director/producer Alan Young, is rudimentary but honest. EDIT
