    Sweet Smell of Success

    ★★★★½

    Every generation has its JJ. If remade today he’d probably be Tucker Carlson. In retrospect the moody gravitas is so extreme is borders on camp — is NYC really so joyless? — but good lord is the tempo and the cynicism timely as all hell, with an empowering ending for the ages.

    The Executioner

    ★★★★½

    Cringe comedy class satire at its finest. Berlanga deserves more recognition for the singularity of his dark humor paired with desperate-yet-lovable characters. Cinema needs more of them.

    Brutal, poignant and economical. One of the best movies ever about the unforgivable scars of colonialism, with a brilliant coda on white guilt.

    This should’ve won best picture 20 years ago. An empowering Latinx body positivity coming of age story that never feels overwrought.
