83% Just Mercy (2020) Foxx's performance as McMillian continues to haunt me. He transforms from the easygoing lumberjack to a stifled, cautious prisoner, who, after so many disappointments and losses, can barely let himself hope for any measure of justice.‐ Isthmus (Madison, WI)

83% Queen & Slim (2019) As a work of social commentary, Queen & Slim is powerful and surprisingly subtle. As a romance, it is utterly devastating.‐ Isthmus (Madison, WI)

82% Neither Wolf Nor Dog (2019) The presence of [David William Beautiful] Bald Eagle, sadly, isn't enough to save this movie. It's just enough to make me sad that I wasn't seeing a documentary about his life.‐ Isthmus (Madison, WI)

92% Say Amen, Somebody (1982) If Say Amen does nothing more than introduce us to Dorsey, a Chicago-based music director who died in 1993, it will have done its duty. But it does so much more than that.‐ Isthmus (Madison, WI)

91% Who Will Write Our History (2019) Grossman's film employs archival photos and videos, but it also illustrates the powerful writings from the unearthed archive with reenactments.
