    Unlike Lovers Rock's more unconventional aim, the slimmer runtimes of both Alex Wheatle and Education seem restrictive, the former by not allowing its biopic structure to breathe, and this one by...

    Lovely, uniquely expressionistic animation fits the vignette structure (and pov sensibility?) of a dog's life well. Giving the ending upfront is also a most bittersweet touch, giving gravitas to...

    It may be from the 70s-era style that this one parodies/homages to, but the ep doesn't feel as charming a sitcom throwback as the previous two, with a more stop-start rhythm. Olsen is still having...

    That courtroom climax is the film in a nutshell, in which the sheer ridiculousness and suspension of disbelief required for such a pivotal scene just about breaks my brain, but the actors involved --...

    I find the film's horror side much less effective than the core refugee story, so after the initially intriguing, rich set-up, the middle act gets somewhat repetitive and limited for me. Both sides...

    I skip his 22 July, but as someone who had enjoyed Greengrass' divisive visceral style up until Captain Phillips, it's rather dispiriting to see him be anonymous like this. Only the stellar...

    I liked that one a lot, feel like him adapting to the era with some seedier variation of his usual suspense mode, but with a lot of dark humor throughout. I still remember potato truck scene.

    I differ from more than a few critics I follow in that, for this film's bifurcated structure, I much prefer the latter half. I can see the Cassavetes/Virginia Woolf-tinged appeal of the first, but...
