    Anatomy of a Fall

    ★★★★½

    Agatha Christie meets Ingmar Bergman.

    The art house darling of 2023 and the winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival is a piece of trash. A consummate, exciting, brilliantly written, directed and performed piece of trash: a provocative courtroom drama, an intense thriller, a confounding whodunnit. But it's also a profound mediation on truth and on love, and on what every individual loses when they enter into a marriage.

    WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION meets SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE.

    ★★½

    Their honey may have been natural but this entire documentary feels artificial. The heavy hands of the direction can be felt everywhere: the peasants choreographed, the situation shamelessly manipulated. Yes, there's meaning to be gleaned from the allegory here, but at what expense?

    ★★★★

    To anyone who's ever thrilled to an Ennio Morricone score, this film is a real gift. Could have run an hour longer and I wouldn't have complained.
