|90 T9||I, Tonya (2017) - Feb 13, 2018
"Towards the end of the second act of "I, Tonya", there's a moment. A career defining moment in which Margot Robbie, as Tonya Harding, stares through the screen and into your soul. She laments how the public went from loving her, to vilifying her, to forgetting she existed entirely, a punchline to a cultural gag. Abused by those around her all her life, she says, to us, "You are all my attackers, too". Everyone has their own truth. Whatever happened between Tonya and Nancy Kerrigan, this is hers."
|80 T7||Phantom Thread (2017) - Feb 11, 2018
"Disquieting in the way that very few films are, "Phantom Thread" leaves you with a pit in your stomach and a thousand questions on your mind. For what reason, I surely won't spoil. To do so would do a disservice to everything Paul Thomas Anderson has worked so hard to convey. Lewis is phenomenal, as always, as is Krieps, and from a production standpoint the film is beyond flawless, but a more defined narrative would've helped bring it all together, at least for me. Bizarre, yet brilliant."
|100 T10||Lady Bird (2017) - Feb 10, 2018
""Lady Bird" is perhaps the most thoughtful, honest, funny, and resoundingly accurate depiction of high school life ever put to film. I know this because I am currently living it. Saoirse Ronan has managed to capture in her performance both the intricacies of wanting to think that you know everything, that you're above it all, but also being truly vulnerable, sometimes even scared, and what happens when one side clashes with the other, all with not much more than looks. A triumph of filmmaking."
|90 T9||Jackie (2016) - Feb 09, 2018|
