    The Nightingale

    ★★★½

    An extremely difficult watch, almost relentless with its brutality. There were moments of payoff and truly excellent performances, but I kept wondering if it was necessary or worth it...I don’t think I’ll revisit it but I’d cautiously recommend it

    Mouthpiece

    ★★★★★

    A really intimate and at times too relatable look at internalized misogyny, self-deprecation and the insecurities we laugh off but are unknowingly passed down generation by generation. I was iffy on the format at first with the two actresses representing one character but before I knew it I couldn’t imagine it any other way. Really powerful and highly recommended.

    ★★★★½

    A great expansion on the simplest spooky concept--some supernatural figure walking, slowly, straight for you. A great retro-reminiscent score helped with the straight up sense of impending and inescapable dread. Also some key jumpy moments. This was legit scary, and lingers.
