2.5/4 81% The Old Guard (2020) The Old Guard, as much as it is dedicated to an explosive popcorn experience, is just as devoted to the compassion holding up the sword.‐ Dr. Filmlove's Film Reviews and Ratings

3.5/4 79% Hammer (2019) It possesses such a strong understanding of its characters that if its half-dead catalyst was sprawled out in their living room instead of a cornfield, the heart behind the decisions wouldn't flake.‐ Dr. Filmlove's Film Reviews and Ratings

2.5/4 87% Shirley (2020) While the film's quest to irk is regularly fulfilled and Elisabeth Moss shines as the titular author, the pretentious pomp of the onscreen academics and the overall lack of thrills makes this "thriller" a promising dud.‐ Dr. Filmlove's Film Reviews and Ratings

92% Da 5 Bloods (2020) Da 5 Bloods is the first great Black Vietnam film, not just the first. It's a movie whose modern envelope minces empathy and excitement within the unsung sacrifice of the African American soldier.‐ Film Inquiry

3/4 79% Judy & Punch (2020) Its well-flowed tempo and constant barrage of gut-wrenching humor, sickening abuse, and medieval ignorance is sometimes compromised by an awkward rudder...but is otherwise great fun.‐ Dr. Filmlove's Film Reviews and Ratings

4/5 100% This Teacher (2020) The setting is as important a character as Hafsia...never threatening or violent enough to be behind enemy lines, but definitely [different enough] to feel isolating.‐ VoiceBoxOffice

86% The Man With the Golden Arm (1955) Though tame by comparison to the vein-ripping dramas since populated by Aronofsky, Boyle, and Van Sant, The Man with the Golden Arm's outlawed aesthetic and spirit make it a tangible and lasting achievement.‐ Film Inquiry

3.5/4 79% True History of the Kelly Gang (2020) In trading the American frontier for barren branch graveyards and facts largely for fiction, this stylized folk tale is patched together by the same needles that weave myths.‐ Dr. Filmlove's Film Reviews and Ratings

2.5/4 86% The Sharks (Los tiburones) (2019) Cool gazes and strikingly extended shots work together to harness a steady sense of uneasiness in the viewer, who's forced to sink in their seat and doubt how far Rosina can go.‐ Dr. Filmlove's Film Reviews and Ratings

3/4 97% Why Don't You Just Die! (Papa, sdokhni) (2020) Why Don't You Just Die!, a red-soaked blood fest sometimes axed by its own relentless stamina, is a grim and smartly constructed mound of chaos‐ Dr. Filmlove's Film Reviews and Ratings
