    Poor Things


    Without a doubt, this might be my favorite work from Yorgos Lanthimos to date.

    What Lanthimos delivers here is undoubtedly his most sexually audacious work to date. The film boldly and candidly explores female sexuality from start to finish to utter perfection. It might as well leave those staunchly opposed to explicit sex scenes in their movies sprinting for the hills now while they still have the chance, especially with its scheduled wide release approaching this upcoming December.

  • Oppenheimer



    Oppenheimer is a film that fulfills filmmaker Christopher Nolan's almost two-decade-long ambition itch, which began with his desire to put together a gripping biographical film that revolved around a contentious historical figure that had been roaming around creatively in his mind since his early post-Memento days.

  • Barbarian



    This film was not on my radar until I heard Zach Cregger, of all people, directed it.

    For those who don't know, Cregger, the writer and director behind Barbarian, was one of five members of The Whitest Kids U' Know, a sketch comedy group best known for their IFC television series that aired from 2007 to 2011 of the same name. 

    I'm cutting corners a bit here, but back in 2009, due to the show's success, the group was able…
