3.5/4 After the Wedding (2019) Cate Marquis It is a family drama but one filled with complicated people and difficult choices, where there are no good guys or bad guys, just flawed people striving to make the best of the circumstances. It is a refreshing approach. EDIT

Posted Jul 29, 2019
4.5/5 The White Crow (2018) Cate Marquis ...a taut dramatic thriller that is as much about overcoming adversity and the drive of an artist to be free, as it is about Nureyev, the Cold War or ballet. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
3/5 John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) Cate Marquis It is a lot of plot, complicated connections and underworld characters to carry, which tends weigh down the whole film after awhile. The whole cast is great, but it is a bit like too much of a rich, delicious dessert all at once. EDIT

3.5/5 Red Joan (2018) Cate Marquis Perhaps Nunn tried to do a bit too much with this film, layering this woman's secret past with themes of feminist and anti-war sentiment. When the film focuses on the characters in the past, it builds a driving thriller tension... EDIT
