    Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé


    A++ as concert documentaries go. Can’t get enough of the faux-intimacy provided by the voiceover and the rehearsal footage, but the stage show itself is overwhelming, thrilling and smart. Beyoncé shows everyone else how it’s done, again.

    My Brilliant Career


    Such a beautifully made film about a refreshingly self-determined young heroine. Hard to quite nail what is so incredible about Judy Davis’s performance, but I think it’s in that mysterious smile. And please forgive me, but Sam Neill is very, very dashing.

    Phantom Thread


    Chilly portrait of a mentally ill artist who revels in his own sickness, with his preferred enablers. Oddly hilarious, and always gorgeous, despite all these repugnant details. Like a beautiful silk gown with the pins left in the seams, or a delicious omelette spiked with toxic mushrooms.

  • Merry-Go-Round



    Giddily high-strung anti-capitalist love story. Just gorgeous from start to finish.
