83% Waves (2019) Waves displays some brilliant filmmaking. It's beautiful to look at. The camerawork is intense - bordering on too intense at times - but I appreciate what was being done here. Again, it's a fascinating movie.‐ Uproxx

8/10 93% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) At any point in the film, you can substitute 'robbing banks' for 'making movies' and it still all makes perfect sense. Here's Redford, now 82 years old, in a role where he looks like a gosh darn kid.‐ Uproxx
