C+ 39% Downhill (2020) A safer, more-watered down version of the original Swedish film‐ World of Reel

B 70% Horse Girl (2020) Brie's performance is funny, sad, disturbing and, ultimately, resonates because you do believe the mental health nightmare that this poor woman is going through.‐ World of Reel

C+ 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) However, the fight scenes grow tiresome, so does the unnecessary body pile-up. All delivered via ear-debilitating sound mixing. "Birds of Prey" may be R-rated, but the extra gore feels unnecessary here. ‐ World of Reel

C 89% Come to Daddy (2020) What starts off as a promising comic thriller deflates quickly as Thompson would rather concentrate on the gore and how daddy may be a psychopath‐ World of Reel

B 80% The Traitor (2020) "The Traitor" may not tackle new territory, but it is nothing short of exemplary in the way a familiar story can still be revitalized with a great director behind the camera‐ World of Reel

B+ 89% The Assistant (2020) That's why the film works so well, Jane's office feels incredibly familiar because this kind of toxic environment, which enables employers to exploit employees, could easily be happening anywhere else in America. ‐ World of Reel

D 85% Nine Days (2020) Sure, a movie like "Nine Days" must be commended in its unadorned artistic aim for the skies, but the execution is rather clunky.‐ World of Reel

B+ 100% I Carry You with Me (2020) An artful mood piece filled with incredible relevance‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
B+ 100% Minari (2020) The lack of any showiness is, in fact, part of Minari's charm.‐ World of Reel

B 94% Boys State (2020) The film builds up momentum for us to fully inhabit this world and care for the stakes at hand.‐ World of Reel

B 100% Dick Johnson Is Dead (2020) Despite the morbid subject matter, this creative, joyous doc feels like a breath of fresh air.‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2020
B+ 98% Promising Young Woman (2020) Although none-too-subtle in execution, "Promising Young Woman" is perversely heroic, a scathing indictment of male cruelty that doesn't mind being over-the-top. ‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2020
B+ 100% Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets (2020) A mosaic of disillusionment‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2020
B+ 100% Palm Springs (2020) Despite retreading the familiar time-loop trope, the film is silly but incredibly entertaining - one of the funniest movies you will likely see this year. ‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2020
B 92% Possessor (2020) A bloodily convoluted and erotic sci-fi caper that is never dull to watch‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2020
D 6% The Last Thing He Wanted (2020) The film turns out to be an incoherent mess of the highest order.‐ World of Reel

Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2020
B+ 100% Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020) The success of the film ultimately lies in the bond between Autumn and Skylar, the sisterly bond they both share is the beating heart of this exceptional movie. ‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2020
C+ 88% Zola (2020) the film is all about escalation. There is nary a subtle moment in Bravo's overtly stylish frames. Bravo is a talented filmmaker and one can imagine that with a better screenplay, she will eventually give us a special film. ‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2020
C+ 53% Falling (2020) The highlight of the film for me was David Cronenberg's hilarious cameo as a proctologist.‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2020
C 54% Bad Hair (2020) In its second hour, things start to fall apart when Simien decides to inject slasher film tropes into his narrative, blurring the film's message of black culture being "whitened" for mainstream purposes. ‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2020
C 97% Shirley (2020) There's an ambivalence to the on-screen characters that feels off and that, ultimately, puts the viewer at a distance from the drama.‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2020
B 88% Black Bear (2020) It's Plaza who keeps your eyes glued to the screen - she's an unmissable treat: sexy, provocative and ready to blow up.‐ World of Reel

C- 91% Clemency (2019) A little less restraint would have worked better for the film‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2019

Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2019
C 95% Little Women (2019) a scattered piece of storytelling‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2019
C- 82% Queen & Slim (2019) A road movie that goes absolutely nowhere‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2019
C 94% Honey Boy (2019) If "Honey Boy" felt like a personal project for the actor, it feels like total vanity for the viewer. ‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2019
B+ 91% El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) "El Camino" was very engaging. A suspenseful, well-acted, superbly shot and edited movie. An amalgam of everything we love about the richly-detailed New Mexican crime world Vince Gilligan created in "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul."‐ World of Reel

96% The Irishman (2019) Martin Scorsese's eulogy to gangster cinema‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2019
C+ 84% Ad Astra (2019) The father-son story doesn't really grab the viewer. I quite simply didn't care for the emotional stakes at hand in "Ad Astra."‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2019
B+ 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) Has some of the very best and most thrilling racecar driving scenes ever put on film.‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2019
B+ 68% Joker (2019) Although "Joker," directed with passionate fury by Todd Phillips, is an entirely gripping movie, one cannot imagine it being as successful without Phoenix's landmark performance.‐ World of Reel

A- 94% Western Stars (2019) "Western Stars" is a celebration of this music and its expansive, engrossing storytelling.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2019
95% Marriage Story (2019) The back-and-forth he-said/she-said is a fascinating aspect of this film and will no doubt lead to conversation about which side Baumbach is actually on. ‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2019
C- 22% Lucy in the Sky (2019) Much like he's done in "Fargo" Hawley wants to aim for the stars, but, this time around, he can't even achieve liftoff.‐ World of Reel

Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2019

Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2019
B 97% Dolemite Is My Name (2019) "Dolemite is my Name" is the funniest movie I have seen all year, a hoot and a holler about a black man living in whitey America yearning to make a name for himself. ‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2019
C- 80% Jojo Rabbit (2019) Conventional, lazy and incredibly irresponsible filmmaking ‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2019
B 89% The Two Popes (2019) Despite its over reliance on unnecessary flashbacks, "The Two Popes" is a masterclass in acting delivered by two legendary stalwarts of the craft: Pryce and Hopkins. ‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2019
C+ 83% Just Mercy (2020) "Just Mercy" gets bogged down by heavy-handedness.‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2019
B+ 95% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) The movie's success relies heavily on the conversations between Hanks and Rhys, moments which will not only make you think about the characters in the movie, but your own life as well.‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2019
A- 84% The Art of Self-Defense (2019) "The Art of Self-Defense" is a true original that aims to tackle the deepest pits of toxic masculinity, to almost absurd extremes.‐ World of Reel
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2019
C 42% Stuber (2019) Of course, the actors shouldn't be faulted for how flat "Stuber" ends up feeling - they try to rise the mediocrity around them into something watchable. They can't.‐ World of Reel
