    The Reason I Jump

    ★★★★

    A film of rapturous beauty & power. The Reason I Jump is a gorgeously rendered & deeply compassionate journey through the lives of extraordinary individuals. This documentary is a gift (and I’m a little upset it didn’t receive an Academy Award nomination, much less a win.)

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    ★★★★★

    Bo Burnham is wildly talented. Inside raises the standards of quarantine art. It’s a hilarious, clever, and fresh take on technology and isolation that delights audiences as much as it forces them to think critically about the state of our world.

    Memories of Murder

    ★★★★★

    I’ve been a fan of Bong Joon-Ho ever since I watched “Mother” in junior high. I’m so glad his earlier work is gaining a lot of attention. While Parasite was undoubtedly the best film of 2019, Memories of Murder solidifies itself as the filmmaker’s magnum opus. Despite it being his sophomore feature, Bong Joon-Ho demonstrates a masterful control over the craft. Technically accomplished, visually striking, and sharply written/directed, Memories of Murder examines one of South Korea’s most notorious cases to create a harrowing but deeply thoughtful portrayal of two detectives facing the most difficult case of their careers.

    Boys State

    ★★★★½

    Funny, timely, and at times harrowing, Jesse Moss and Amanda McBaine’s Boys State is the documentary of the year.
