Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
74% The Lodge (2020) I am not sure The Lodge is more than a system of scares, barely holding together: I don't think the movie satisfies.‐ The New Republic

91% The Assistant (2020) It's a patient, deliberate, and chilling film, a damning indictment of the power structures that define so much of American life. ‐ The New Republic

21% Like a Boss (2020) I'm overthinking, but even bad art can tell us something about ourselves. At this point, we understand how business works. Why aim for the glass ceiling at all?‐ The New Republic

91% Clemency (2019) I hate the amateur quarterbacking I'm about to engage in, but that [Woodard's] performance did not merit an Academy Award nomination is damning.‐ The New Republic

85% Les Misérables (2020) You might call these the slums, but the film is not slumming. The drone itself is a player in this work, and an overhead shot of a ragtag outdoor bazaar reveals the place's startling geometry.‐ The New Republic

21% Cats (2019) You might still want to know if it's a good movie, but that is the wrong question. Cats is sui generis.‐ The New Republic

76% Richard Jewell (2019) Richard Jewell is an accomplishment in reminding us that the man was, after all, a hero. The film is a failure in making any larger point.‐ The New Republic

51% Charlie's Angels (2019) More discouraging than the fact that it got remade is the fact that the story's moral hasn't changed one bit since Diaz, Barrymore, and Liu were the ones telling it. At least that movie had a catchy song by Destiny's Child.‐ The New Republic

96% Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator (2019) Even though Choudhury's crimes are a matter of record, Yogi, Guru, Predator is very damning.‐ The New Republic

97% The Kingmaker (2019) The Kingmaker is a terrifying film.‐ The New Republic

94% Honey Boy (2019) In Alma Har'el's film, Shia LeBeouf mines his own life-and reminds us how gifted an actor he is.‐ The New Republic

60% The Dreamers (2004) The Dreamers is not particularly well acted or well written, so it comes as a surprise that the movie itself is good - beautifully art-directed and with a pitch-perfect soundtrack. ‐ Flak Magazine
