Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B+ 82% Undine (2020) While "Undine" is initially rather languid, it soon becomes a fascinating and very gorgeously realized thing to behold. ‐ The Playlist

C+ 70% Siberia (2020) Abel Ferrara's philosophical conversations maunder, varying wildly in complexity-yet some moments of "Siberia" capture authentic tragedy, grief, and pathos.‐ The Playlist

A 100% Last and First Men (2020) It's a tragedy that this will be Jóhannsson's only directorial work, being so illustrative of a phenomenal artist. Nevertheless-what a final word this is.‐ The Playlist

D+ 41% The Roads Not Taken (2020) "The Roads Not Taken" is perfectly satisfactory in terms of style, but the film leaves much to be desired when it comes to content. ‐ The Playlist

4/5 96% First Cow (2020) First Cow, in this sense, feels to be the natural progression of these ideas-it simultaneously celebrates the speedy inventiveness of the American West and formally basks in meditative stasis.‐ AwardsWatch

100% Welcome to Chechnya (2020) Welcome to Chechnya not only provides a stark reminder of the everyday reality of anti-queer oppression outside of our 'progressive' Western bubble, but also of the precarious nature of global LGBT+ rights.‐ Little White Lies

55% The Dead Don't Die (2019) Jim Jarmusch's B-movie satire rises slowly, brings our attention to its stench, and proceeds to wander aimlessly, disappointingly caught in its own daze.‐ AwardsWatch

91% The Climb (2020) Michael Angelo Covino's re-invention of the buddy comedy - a rich American cinematic tradition - smoothly rolls through farce to a cathartic finish.‐ AwardsWatch

92% And Then We Danced (2020) And Then We Danced is a truly revolutionary statement, not only rejecting the oppressive hegemony of its native country, but of global prejudice.‐ AwardsWatch

85% Les Misérables (2020) Ladj Ly's supremely confident debut feature recalls the bitingly fierce critical voice of Victor Hugo's classic novel, transplanting it into the estates and housing blocks of post-World Cup Paris.‐ AwardsWatch

97% Knives Out (2019) To be frank, it works sublimely.‐ GQ Magazine [UK]
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2019
71% The King (2019) As much as I enjoyed The King, the overbearing thought I had was this: do we really need another dark, edgy period adaptation of the Henriad?‐ GQ Magazine [UK]

68% Joker (2019) Much of what shouldn't work are sold in entirety by Phoenix's performance; if Joker ultimately proves anything it's that he's the best actor of his generation.‐ GQ Magazine [UK]

2/5 41% Wasp Network (2019) For the most part, though, Wasp Network is far from the snappy and coherent political thriller it's trying to be. ‐ One Room With A View

3/5 34% Seberg (2020) There's a great biopic in there somewhere, buoyed by [Kristen] Stewart's confident performance; but the film's unfortunate flabbiness and unimaginative script hold it at a static note of "fine". Quite a shame.‐ One Room With A View

3/5 95% Marriage Story (2019) It would be facile not to acknowledge Marriage Story's emotional impact -- only the eyes of the soulless won't water. But should a film so clearly manufactured to tear-jerk be celebrated for achieving the bare minimum? Probably not.‐ One Room With A View

1/5 63% Child's Play (2019) Child's Play is thematically disparate enough from the original, unlike other horror remakes being conveyed out of the Hollywood abattoir, that it justifies its existence. Unfortunately, said existence is entirely wasted by incongruous filmmaking.‐ One Room With A View

5/5 100% Don't Be a Dick About It (2020) Upheld by it's huge, wholesome heart, Don't Be a Dick About It works tremendously as a slice of life, humanist comedy, serving plentiful guffaws through it's examination of the petty conflicts specific to brotherhood.‐ One Room With A View

4/5 91% Gloria Bell (2019) Gloria Bell smashes the Bechdel Test and further solidifies Sebastián Lelio as an auteur capable of immense empathy.‐ One Room With A View
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2019
2/5 55% Ma (2019) [Octavia] Spencer's effort is undermined by Ma's wildly inconsistent tone, one-dimensional character writing, and a terribly paced finale of cringeworthy body horror, a sequence which feels like an entirely different film in itself. ‐ One Room With A View

3/5 97% First Love (Hatsukoi) (2019) First Love is a fun, adrenaline-fueled crime thriller, though it does little to stand out from the rest of the director's filmography.‐ One Room With A View

1/5 42% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) The battles are epic, the shots are wide, and the roars are loud, but no level of overcompensation can make up for laughable dialogue, hokey editing and a disregard for character development‐ One Room With A View

1/5 46% Bel Canto (2018) Bel canto literally translates to "beautiful singing", but there's nothing beautiful to be found in the titular film. A woefully written, poorly paced hostage thriller which struggles to hold its faltering note.‐ One Room With A View

5/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Style and content almost perfectly coalesce in Endgame, combining a well-structured narrative and rich characterisation with grand set pieces. ‐ One Room With A View
