    The Host

    ★★★★

    The Host probably plays to viewers many different ways. Some might be more affected by the existential dread and fear generated by its deformed, radioactive sea monster. Others may take more from its heartwarming, and ultimately tragic, examination of the archetypal South Korean family.

    Dark Days

    ★★★★½

    It's hard to think of another doc that has the unfettered access AND beautiful cinematography that Dark Days achieves. Also, what a memorable, charming bunch of people to spend an hour-and-a-half with. Marc Singer: Make more movies, please.
