"By the numbers but effective and informative piece, nearly record by record, through his multiple sounds and phases, on one of the most gifted artists have ever walked the Earth. I wish the parts about his abusive, cool but arrogant, antissocial, self-destructive persona were longer and and maybe less folcloric, but they are at least present. "

"Yes, pretty bland in every aspect, from generic action set-pieces to uninspired "new, gritty, Marvel-like funny" approach to the legend, but not nearly as horrific as critics and everyone said at the time it was released. Just forgettable."

"Can't say I'm a fan or anything like that, but its quiet, yet relentlessly engaging story of old jewish brothers living separate lives until their mom's death unites them again, only to create a series of brutally honest and somewhat funny situations. Precise, economic filmmaking with three great leads."

"Don't know if the multiple characters experiences provide anything truly dramatic, but this is undeniably pretty engaging at its cinema spectacle thrills and not so much as far as war melodrama goes. Effects seem neat, good-looking and better well-shot and put together than in most war flicks. Patriotic shit is also Emmerich's mark, but I'm all in for this kind of naive, well-spirited, not very profound or multi-layered pop filmmaking."
|30 5%||The Silence (2019) - Aug 02, 2020
"Evidently bad and derivative to the point we could not care less about what happens here -- but het, I'm not a A Quiet Place fan and expected this to be way worse."

"It poses as a daring erotic thriller, but it's nothing more than a gloriously atrocious Fifty Shades ripoff that glorifies torture and toxic relationships. Not to mention it is badly shot in all aspects."
|65 62%||The Squid and the Whale (2005) - Aug 01, 2020
"So painful to watch. Brutally honest as a personal piece on the destruction a divorce causes. Gotta love its relentless pace, although I don't know if the easy portrait of toxic masculinity survives the test of time."

"Not the most inspired Ferrell vehicle, which is kind of good because reminds us of how McAdams is great at comedy. The acts look and sound pretty well-staged and left me wanting more of the competitive material -- and less of the (yet to be) couple dynamics. I shouldn't be rooting for a sequel, but what the hell, sure I am."
|60 50%||Peterloo (2018) - Jul 30, 2020
"Leigh goes full Loach in a bleak, often mostly educational history piece -- the filmmaking kind of comes in during the massacre itself, but this feels nonetheless engaging and politically resonant."
|75 80%||It Must Be Heaven (2019) - Jul 29, 2020
"ZAZ slapstick comedy, but with Suleiman's subtle look at a world constantly at war with itself. The fact that he manages to find comedy through absurdist situations is just amazing, in an almost no-liner narrative -- eerie scenes seem like they were shot during the Covid-19 pandemic. Cab driver amazed after meeting a Palestinian, Americans going places heavily armed and young Palestinians in a party trying to live as normal people. Sometimes irregular and out of pace, but always rewarding."
