  1. Caged Birds is a masterpiece from start to finish. The directing is strong, balancing a lot of tones at one time. The writing is strong, with two likable, engaging characters at the forefront. The visuals and music are excellent, elevating the characters and atmosphere masterfully.
  2. It’s scary, intense, and moody. Derrickson’s first film since Doctor Strange (the first one, the good one) is one of the best horror films in a very long time.

    Overall, it’s a worthwhile journey.
  3. Cane Fire is a fascinating documentary, and I would recommend it to any American to watch. We should see what is wrought by claiming an archipelago from the people who actually owned it.
  4. Abandoned delivers tension with a more nuanced approach to a particularly emotionally vulnerable stage of life.
  5. Sometimes whimsical, at others quaint, flirting with darkness but brimming with childlike naivety, the plot provides a hell of a tonal whiplash, never finding its rhythm.
  6. Thanks to the stylish direction and strong cast, the film is sure to terrify and delight everyone who dares to play along.
  7. The Story Won’t Die gives us hope that what happened in Syria won’t be drowned out or forgotten and that bold artistic expression that disrupts the West’s status quo will also not die. These young Syrian artists keep such hopes alive.
  8. Lost Illusions is certainly nothing we haven’t seen before, at least narratively. But it’s done very well. Sometimes, you just feel like having a good ol’ soufflé.
  9. Rounding can be a tough film and one that puts its viewers through a lot, but the investment is well worth it.
  10. Leemans puts in one of the best performances I have seen by an actress playing a male prostitute while actually pregnant. Likewise, Hentschel puts in one of the best performances I have seen by an actor playing a pregnant woman tripping on mushrooms while buck-a*s naked. The two completely inhabit each other’s characters, never sinking down to ridiculing them no matter how hard the onslaught of comedy gets.
  11. Medusa is an electrifying work of art that elevates its already elevated pop influences, a transcendental tableau of the true-life horror of female oppression.
  12. With an incisive script that trifles with emotional and thematic transparency, Krippendorff authentically captures what it is like to grapple with one’s burgeoning maturity and identity.
  13. Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko explores what it’s like to be in the shadow of your parent, the lessons imparted by our elders, the value of a support system among women, the power of literature, the appreciation of food (frequently referred to as “yummy”), and the importance of staying true to yourself. Eat that, Pixar.
  14. The filmmaker confidently guides us to a conclusion that really isn’t a conclusion at all but a new beginning. These men may not be all that wild, but Daneskov’s film is just loopy and daring enough to qualify as such in the best way possible.

    Returning in Lightyear is the trademark Pixar sense of humor. Like every film, all jokes are meticulously crafted in a way that will make children laugh and adults laugh harder.
  15. If your first exposure to Rasoulof was There is No Evil, you may feel a bit let down by A Man of Integrity. That is not to say that this is a subpar film, as it is definitely a satisfying drama.
  16. The massive amount of information Echoes of the Empire: Beyond Genghis Khan has to offer is split between several subjects. While all these facts are bound to pique curiosity, it sometimes forgets to satisfy its audience by not focusing on more of each element.
  17. The filmmaker’s careful modulation of tone and rhythm, how gradually he reveals mysteries, and the mere fact that this is a dialogue/character-driven horror tale make it hard to believe that this is O’Brien’s feature-length debut.
  18. I would very much recommend everyone watch this and make their own decisions. There are times when Walsh gets a little corny, but overall, he presents many facts and opposing arguments that are, at the very least, something to think about.

    As a comedy, Ninja Badass serves up one hilarious joke after the next.
  19. Preposterous but entertaining, Jurassic World: Dominion not only finds new ways to inspire the awe and wonder sorely lacking from previous installments, but it also recaptures some of that Spielberg magic.
  20. Keeping Company is a delirious carnival ride at the intersection between rapacious greed and murderous insanity, and definitely worth your uncomfortable laughter.

    The battles are bloody and gory, and the set pieces are absolutely massive in scale.
  21. It is a straightforward narrative of racism where one man’s courage and refusal to give up provides an outlet for success and reform.

    It’s a fitting tribute to Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse and makes you long for a time when storytelling was someone just telling a story.

    What The Phantom of the Open has going for it is a sweet and unconventionally inspirational story.

    While simple, there is great depth to this uncomplicated story.
  22. We Are The Thousand is a phenomenal music documentary and experience for anyone, especially musicians.
  23. My Dead Dad could have been histrionic, filled with overacting, based on just its plot synopsis. However, thanks to carefully written characters, an excellent cast, and some jaw-droppingly inspired editing, the drama finds the truth in the small moments between people.
