American Psycho (2000) Kristy Strouse There are times where this film is satire at its best. It's also horrific, violent and stomach-turning. Christian Bale is incredible in this movie and he commits to making Bateman completely deplorable. EDIT

The Runaways (2010) Kristy Strouse There are some wonderful emotional developments between these young women, forming bonds off stage, before kicking ass on. They are thrust into unknown territory while navigating their own sexuality and identities, and that's the real heart of the film. EDIT

Horse Girl (2020) Kristy Strouse An incongruous, engaging ride, Horse Girl doesn't hit all the marks, and some audiences will become deterred, but Brie's tour de force performance is truly the base and it's one worth jumping off from. EDIT

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) Kristy Strouse Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a whirlwind of emotions, and it is the kind of romance that is just grounded enough, in reality, to inspire and incite, but whimsical enough to deserve its own special place in the genre's history. EDIT

The Invitation (2015) Kristy Strouse Old wounds, new wounds, paranoia and terror are all split open and laid bare, making The Invitation a feat in filmmaking. EDIT

Gremlins (1984) Kristy Strouse As a black comedy, a satirical look at consumerism, and a movie bursting with Christmas cheer, no matter the descriptor- Joe Dante's Gremlins is a classic. EDIT

Take This Waltz (2011) Kristy Strouse It's the humanistic and harsh reality that settles into the bones of Take This Waltz that makes it memorable. When I first saw it I wasn't sure how to feel, I just knew that I did. EDIT
