Destroyer

This is a supremely missable film. Dull as it is tedious, it takes a long time to go nowhere.

Shoplifters

A unique, captivating Japanese film in subtitles that involved a drama that I have never seen on the big screen.

If Beale Street Could Talk

This is a meaningful film that will leave you feeling emotionally exhausted.

The Mule

This film is completely missable unless we learn that it is Mr. Eastwood’s last movie.

Widows

This is a complicated drama dominated by extraordinary performances by a handful of talented actresses. The film could have been subtitled, Band of Sisters.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web

This is not a sensational film by any definition, but it is worth the price of admission.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

This is a unique, dark R-rated film that lovingly portrays unlikeable people.

22 July

A dark, historical film that is difficult to experience but necessary to watch.

The Sisters Brothers

This movie could have been a great 1 and ½ hour film. Sadly, it ran over 2 hours.
