3/4 Little Fish (2020) Michael Nordine Even someone with the memory of a goldfish can see how tragic it is. EDIT

2/4 Malcolm & Marie (2021) Michael Nordine If witnessing one of these potentially relationship-ending arguments play out in excruciating detail doesn't sound like the making of a compelling movie, that's because it isn't. EDIT

2.5/4 Atlantis (2019) Michael Nordine Makes a habit of providing just enough detail to pique our interest and ensure that we're giving the film our undivided attention. EDIT

3/4 Beginning (2020) Michael Nordine If this year sees even a handful of films as beautifully shot as Beginning, it won't have been a total bust. EDIT

3/4 The Little Things (2021) Michael Nordine Though no Zodiac (to which it's clearly indebted), this is a genuinely compelling procedural with a gloriously bittersweet ending. EDIT

2.5/4 Saint Maud (2019) Michael Nordine The kind of movie that used to get banned in several countries and condemned by the Catholic Church, which I mean as a compliment. EDIT

2.5/4 The Dig (2021) Michael Nordine Stone handles this thematic bedrock with all the care of an archaeologist brushing his latest find as it emerges from the dirt. EDIT

3/4 News of the World (2020) Michael Nordine In addition to being more timely than it was probably intended to be, News of the World has the feel of a warm blanket on a cold winter night. EDIT

3/4 Promising Young Woman (2020) Michael Nordine Ms. 45 this is not, but the spirit of righteous vengeance lives in it just as strongly. EDIT
Posted Jan 7, 2021
2.5/4 Pieces of a Woman (2020) Michael Nordine Like its heroine, Pieces of a Woman can't help but feel directionless after its first-act climax. EDIT
Posted Jan 7, 2021
Mank (2020) Michael Nordine It never gives the impression of having needed to be made by Fincher as opposed to some replacement-level director of autumnal prestige pictures. EDIT

Nomadland (2020) Michael Nordine It's quiet and spare in a way I admired more than I actively loved. EDIT
