72% The Other Lamb (2020) The Other Lamb is not a subtle allegory, but it never claims to be. Rather, it's a phoenix rising from the ashes...‐ Chicago Reader

91% Bacurau (Nighthawk) (2020) It's a rallying cry against structural injustice told through a satisfying blend of western and science fiction influences.‐ Chicago Reader

99% Blow the Man Down (2020) It's an incredibly cunning mystery with a charming cast of characters who ultimately crack under the pressure of keeping up with their appearances.‐ Chicago Reader

3/4 88% Swallow (2020) In a time when everyone's anxieties are heightened, it's validating to see a film like Carlo Mirabella-Davis's Swallow, which understands that sometimes the scariest things are grounded in reality.‐ Chicago Reader

No Score Yet Tiger Milk (Tigermilch) (2017) Unfortunately, the most poignant things Tiger Milk has to say are overshadowed by lesser plot points that eat up valuable screen time.‐ Chicago Reader

92% Maze (2019) What Maze gains in its depiction of history, it loses in emotional strength.‐ Chicago Reader

No Score Yet Bauhaus Spirit (2019) Bauhaus Spirit surprisingly lacks creativity in its presentation and often feels formulaic and uninspiring.‐ Chicago Reader

No Score Yet When I Last Saw Jesse (2019) It's hard to make a compelling case for the necessity of When I Last Saw Jesse, but it's worth a watch simply for [filmmaker Brian] Rose's immense passion toward his haunting subject.‐ Chicago Reader

50% Emma Peeters (2018) Even with its taboo subject matter, Emma Peeters bursts at the seams with witty humor, self awareness, and a complicated feeling of hope.‐ Chicago Reader
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2020
86% 37 Seconds (2019) It's a rare film that understands disability as a complex part of its character's understanding of themselves and the world around them, rather than a categorization to be swiftly demonized or fetishize.‐ Chicago Reader
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2020
98% Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Portrait de la jeune fille en feu) (2020) It's a slow burn, sure, but the embers are remarkable.‐ Chicago Reader

87% A Private War (2018) While Rosamund Pike delivers an unbeatable portrayal of Colvin, the film itself fails to say anything new about addiction or the demons she battles.‐ Chicago Reader
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2020
23% Men in Black International (2019) There are some jokes that don't land, and the tone can be unbalanced, but overall, this is an enjoyable buddy cop film that takes its characters around the world.‐ Chicago Reader

89% Blinded by the Light (2019) Most of the film's emotional weight is undermined by cheesy sing-alongs with the lyrics visualized in such a garish way that the supposed thematic significance bashes the audience in the head.‐ Chicago Reader
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2020
88% Ready or Not (2019) Weaving comes alive as a hilarious and deeply macabre play on the "final girl" archetype, and it's nothing short of cathartic to cheer her on and echo the rage that quickly consumes and empowers her.‐ Chicago Reader

3/4 68% Knives and Skin (2019) Carolyn is a martyr for Reeder's message-a complex and twisted commentary on the plights of human nature. ‐ Chicago Reader
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2019
90% The Lighthouse (2019) The visceral, disgusting, and irrefutably maddening theatrics of The Lighthouse are entrancing enough to have viewers happily giving themselves over to a beckoning siren by film's end.‐ Chicago Reader
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2019
90% Starfish (2019) How does one grieve in the apocalypse? It's a question that festers in A.T. White's directorial debut like a ticking time bomb.‐ Chicago Reader
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2019
1/4 63% Bird Box (2018) It squanders an opportunity for thoughtful commentary on trauma and survival.‐ Chicago Reader
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2019
3/4 93% CAM (2018) Horror, at its best, reconstructs the formula of the genre and reflects what frightens us in a particular moment. Simply put, Cam is about the terror of getting locked out of your online accounts and losing your manufactured identity.‐ Chicago Reader

73% Assassination Nation (2018) Assassination Nation is a lesson in taking back agency in a world that constantly tries to strip young women of it. But it also forces the audience to wake up and hold up a mirror to the hypocrisy in our own values.‐ Chicago Reader

4/4 99% Eighth Grade (2018) Eighth Grade is a harrowing portrait of anxiety and acceptance in a post-social-media landscape, showing how all of us cope with an ever-changing, constantly refreshing world.‐ Chicago Reader
