    Captain America: Civil War

    ★★★★

    What set the Russo's apart from other Marvel filmmakers is something very simple but essential to their success: they tend toward having action and reaction in the same frame, as opposed to joining them in separate shots. It unifies everything and makes the feats of superhero abilities that much more visceral and wondrous.

    Winter Solider is still their (and Marvel's) best film, though.

    In 4K UHD HDR, which makes those muted digital Alexa skin tones finally pop with color.

    Wonderfully absurd with that particular kind of inexplicability the classic Midnight Movies have. It wears the costume of an anthology horror film, but plays it out as high camp.

    The cast, however, create an effective foundation to ground the more surreal aspects. Fatma Mohamed steals the film with one of my favorite performances of the year.

    PA: Well, the scripts are in order, but they were printed together. Each page is from a different script.
    ZS: Whatever, we shoot tomorrow.
    PA: But sir, each scene just ends arbitrarily, and there is no logical progression from one scene to the next.
    ZS: It'll be fine, we'll figure it out…
