    Blonde

    ★★★

    Blonde is a complicated, flawed movie that takes risks: risks with casting, writing & direction. But make no mistake, these risks are noble & worth watching. Especially worth watching is Ana de Armas, who is stellar & destined for Oscar consideration. Blonde is bold.

  • Don't Worry Darling

    Don't Worry Darling

    Despite a world-class cast & visually captivating style, Don't Worry Darling fails on every level you can imagine. Sometimes awful publicity can still enhance the roll-out of a film: not here. Don't Worry Darling was a disaster from the moment production started to the moment the end credits roll. Perhaps the single biggest issue with this film is the utterly miserable screenplay it's based off. Show me a more forgettable screenplay, I beg of you.

    Don't Worry Darling is a film…

    Nope

    In his third feature film Nope, Jordan Peele affirms he is a master storyteller & this generation's Hitchcock. Through deliberate, tactile pieces, Peele brings the fear of darkness to light & does as so many great horror directors before him: slowly pull you in then quickly drag you under. Peele works the audience like few directors I can remember. Then there's Daniel Kaluuya, Peele's ultimate muse. The entire cast, especially Steven Yeun, shine- but Kaluuya continues to show something new with each role. He's so unpredictable & so intense. Another brilliant collaboration between the two. Nope equals WOW.

    As a masterful, gripping mystery thriller, The Batman smashes our already stout expectations. In the performance of his career, Pattinson is the perfect emo rendition of Bruce Wayne. Reeves displays brilliant direction as he takes audiences through a compact, detailed mystery. And without question, the cast is flawless. Not enough can be said about Zoe Kravitz, John Turturro, Jeffrey Wright, & Collin Farrel, but sorry, Paul Dano. Paul Dano, Paul Dano....and Paul Dano. We're so happy for Dano who, at 37, finally gets his shine in a massive blockbuster. Go see The Batman: it's a definitive comic book hit.
