90 97% The Father (2020) - Jun 03, 2021
"Probably my favorite Hopkins performance. Seing his character struggle is heartbreaking. Hampton and Zeller never put a foot wrong either. If the 2020's has even a handful of movies as exceptional as this one in store for us, it's going to be a strong decade."
90 97% Marriage Story (2019) - Dec 07, 2019
"The leads knock this one out of the park. The opening is just perfect, and other highlights from this surprisingly empathetic film from Baumbach would include the big fight and the end of the visit from the social worker. 'The Squid and the Whale' is now no longer Baumbach's best, and 'Marriage Story' is not only a strong contender for the best movie of the year, but also no less than one of the better dramas of the decade."
95 98% A Separation (2011) - Dec 02, 2011
"Accessible and engaging. Farhardi shows that what's practical must sometimes take precedence over an ideal when one is forced to prioritize conflicting responsibilities (church, state, family, integrity). Trusting the power of the moral predicaments, he avoids sentimentality and draws exquisite performances. His multifaceted story - both culturally specific and universally relatable - is told elegantly, with perfect unity. An empathetic glimpse into the complicated lives of realistic characters."
90 97% An Inspector Calls (1954) - May 23, 2019
"The twists and turns of the plot (adapted from Priestley's classic, socially conscious play) had me hooked, and the ensemble cast is excellent. So despite the fact that I think that the ambiguous (very) last part of the ending is unnecessary, I loved this!"
95 98% The Browning Version (1951) - Nov 19, 2017
"Blew me away. Both the script and Redgrave's performance are sublime."
90 97% District 9 (2009) - Aug 23, 2009
"Science fiction is, for me, all about the world that is created. More often than not it is the vision as a whole, rather than the plot, that sticks - and what a world Blomkamp creates here! Nevermind the allegory, this is about faultlessly realized aliens and mindblowingly cool weaponry. It's pure fun and, for once, a mockumentary framing device works very well, meshing seamlessly with the mindless action. Oh, and Copley does a great job, too, as the weird but loveable Wikus."
90 97% Let the Right One In (2008) - Feb 08, 2010
"Truly original. Perfectly balanced. The mix of vampire-horror with a coming-of-age story of a bullied boy proves very potent because supernatural happenings to Oskar seem not that much more violent and weird than the everyday life of growing up. The kids are as great as the cinematography is brilliant. A wonderful surprise and the best film of 2008."
90 97% The Easy Life (1962) - Mar 06, 2020
"I really loved this semi-forgotten Italian road movie. Gassman and Trintignant make for one of the most enjoyable duos in film history, and hanging out with their characters, Bruno and Roberto, is a total blast."
99 99% Memento (2001) - Sep 24, 2009
"Telling the story backwards is a brilliant device, not only because it makes for excellent suspense and surprises but especially because you take part in the mystery in a way similar to the protagonist who, as a result of his condition, is also disorientated and confused. The game cast and a neat twist seal the deal; this was, deservedly so, an instant classic."
90 97% Minding the Gap (2018) - May 09, 2019
"It's such a great film that I watched it two nights in a row! It becomes so much more than a documentary about a subculture and a community - an intimate and highly affecting story about growing up in which the long-spanning chronicle of the intertwined pasts and fates of these three troubled young men who found much-needed solace in skateboarding is turned into drama of the highest order. What an astonishingly accomplished debut!"
