The movie definitely had its moments, but it ended up collapsing under its own cinematic weight.

Son of Saul

Magnificent, disturbing films like Son of Saul remind all of us of who we are and how we got here.

Labyrinth of Lies

Condemn the Germans all you want, but would you really want to know if a close relative tortured prisoners at Abu Ghraib during the regrettable Iraqi war?

This is a wonderfully entertaining film that will quickly wrap you around its little finger. And did I mention that the musical score is also sensational?

Would you offer your life to save a loved one? Would you? Are you sure?
