2.5/4 44% Waiting for Anya (2020) [T]here's perhaps too much left unspoken and unexplored.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 88% The Assistant (2020) The silence ... speaks louder and with more forcefulness than any explicit description or depiction could do.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 75% The Lodge (2020) The success of the film ... is that it allows us to understand the realities that these characters have created for themselves.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 80% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Robbie and director Cathy Yan provide a devious, manic energy whenever the movie lets Harley be herself ... and it all but disappears when the other characters appear.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 61% Gretel & Hansel (2020) [W]hen it comes to fairy tales, maybe beautiful and haunting are and, for that matter, should be enough.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 11% Goalie (2019) [T]he filmmakers get to the troubled and troubling heart of Sawchuk's life, but those moments exit within the framework of a straightforward story...‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 29% Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words (2020) Somehow, we come away from the movie understanding its subject even less than when it started.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 28% The Rhythm Section (2020) The Rhythm Section is mostly a hollow stylistic experiment that, on a fundamental level, does nothing different.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 87% Beanpole (Dylda) (2020) The movie ... definitely wants [the characters] to hurt ... It sometimes seems to go out of its way to ensure that they do.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2020
1/4 13% The Turning (2020) There's no rule that a movie adaptation has to stay true to its original source, but this one is just cowardly in its approach.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 0% John Henry (2020) [The] third act ... pummels any notion ... that the filmmakers can resolve the central conflict in a way that respects the real strength of the title character.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2020
2/4 73% The Gentlemen (2020) It's a story ... that's really about how tricky and showy Ritchie can be when telling a story.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2020
3/4 60% The Last Full Measure (2020) The heart of the film is in these stories, communicated by physically and psychologically wounded men, and why the telling of those stories is vital...‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2020
2/4 84% Color Out of Space (2020) The major issue ... is that the movie -- at first, a tale of implied horror -- becomes ... a more literal kind of horror show...‐ Mark Reviews Movies

1.5/4 65% The Wave (2020) [The screenplay] seems to be making up the rules as the movie progresses.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 75% Feedback (2020) [T]he absence of any kind of sympathetic figure here becomes an issue.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2020
0.5/4 13% Disturbing the Peace (2020) This is an old plot, and the filmmakers appear to coast on the notion that such a story is easy to tell. The movie ultimately serves as proof that such is not the case.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2020
1/4 15% Dolittle (2020) In Dolittle, Robert Downey Jr. takes over the title role with the cheer, humor, and charm of a somnambulist.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2020
2/4 77% Bad Boys for Life (2020) The filmmakers don't take any of this too seriously, which is a bit of a shame -- although also to be completely expected, given the series' history.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2020
2.5/4 90% Weathering with You (2020) The story is, unfortunately, not quite as detailed and thoughtful as the artistic means used to tell it.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 15, 2020
2/4 43% Three Christs (2020) [The filmmakers] are too uncertain or, perhaps, timid about delving into the story's assorted questions and topics with any depth.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2020
1/4 50% The Sonata (2020) Instead of leaning into the inherent creepiness ... co-writer/director Andrew Desmond bypasses that for a dull, exposition-heavy scavenger hunt.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2020
3/4 85% Les Misérables (2020) From one point of view, the final act of Les Misérables descends into chaos. From another, it ascends into a revolution of understandable rage.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2020
3/4 42% Inherit the Viper (2020) The darker heart of the film ... is in its examination of the addictive qualities of power.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2020
2/4 48% Underwater (2020) Underwater ... is an admirably simple thriller undone, not by its familiarity, but by a lack of basic craft.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2020
1/4 19% Like a Boss (2020) Each scene plays as its own isolated gag, unconnected to the story and only loosely founded on the broad sketches of these characters.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2020
3/4 83% Just Mercy (2020) We seem to have so few heroes these days, and it's encouraging to see one get his due in a mainstream film.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2020
1/4 20% The Grudge (2020) [N]one of this is particularly suspenseful, not only because of our previous knowledge of the gimmick, but also because the movie itself offers no genuine sense of discovery.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2020
2/4 92% Clemency (2019) Chukwu doesn't quite trust the ... basic setup -- simply observing Bernadine as her job ... becomes an intolerable web of hypocrisy and uncaring routine...‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 26, 2019
2.5/4 75% Spies in Disguise (2019) The central plot conceit of Spies in Disguise is so strange -- to the point that it's almost absurd -- that one has to admire it.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 24, 2019
3/4 89% 1917 (2020) The film's formal trickery is impressive, to be sure.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 24, 2019
4/4 95% Little Women (2019) This is a boisterously charming and emotionally rich adaptation, giving new life to and new ways of looking at this story.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 24, 2019
3/4 93% Invisible Life (A vida invisível de Eurídice Gusmão) (2019) The circumstances of the sisters' separation ... matter, but the characters ... matter much more.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2019
2/4 52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker latches its existence to the past, and in doing so, the movie fails its own characters and story.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2019
4/4 80% A Hidden Life (2019) [T]he only thing that really matters in this film is this world, and that makes this story all the more challenging, thought-provoking, and emotionally devastating.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2019
0.5/4 20% Cats (2019) For the life of me, I cannot determine, calculate, or even divine what this movie is, what purpose it serves, and what line of thinking brought it to life.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2019
3/4 75% Richard Jewell (2019) Richard Jewell may veer into some wild speculation of its own, but it sets the record straight where it matters.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2019
1/4 67% Knives and Skin (2019) A movie as strange as this one needs some grounding in reality. Knives and Skin gives us some -- but not nearly enough.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2019
2/4 39% Black Christmas (2019) [T]he movie becomes just distracted enough by what it "should be" that it misses the full potential of what it could have been.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2019
3.5/4 92% Uncut Gems (2019) We don't have to like the guy. We just have to understand Howard, and Uncut Gems ... really makes us understand him.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2019
2/4 71% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) It's neither an upgrade nor an update -- just more of the same and less of what made the movie's predecessor charmingly clever.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2019
2.5/4 70% Bombshell (2019) [T]he whole thing feels a bit disingenuous.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2019
3/4 89% The Two Popes (2019) It's an intelligent and, surprisingly, sometimes playful film about two intelligent and faithful men...‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2019
3.5/4 98% Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Portrait de la jeune fille en feu) (2020) Writer/director Céline Sciamma takes her time with Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and the results are mysterious, romantic, and quietly devastating.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2019
2/4 64% Little Joe (2019) Even before they're infected ... everyone seems pretty dull in Little Joe.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 94% In Fabric (2019) Does it make sense? When you're dealing with a killer dress, does it have to?‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2019
1.5/4 72% I See You (2019) I See You never finds a solid foundation for its story.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2019
2/4 0% Grand Isle (2019) A neo-noir in the key of Southern Gothic, Grand Isle is appropriately overblown but unfortunately half-baked.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2019
3/4 89% Dark Waters (2019) This is far from inspiring ... and that's exactly the point.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
