    The Artifice Girl


    A fascinating, edge-of-your-seat debate film on the ethics involved in the development of artificial intelligence with staccato rhythms and Sorkinian dialogue (“the server’s in an undisclosed location” “And where is that?” “In an Undisclosed. Location.” “It’s in your bedroom, isn’t it?” “It’s in an Undisclosed. Location.”*). 

    Call it The Machine Learning Network. Or Chat-GPTmi. Likely will draw comparisons to Ex Machina but this film is far less focused on creating suspense or doomed visions of the future, and far more…

    Beau Is Afraid


    A Freudian field day. Like a dream you didn't realize was a nightmare until you woke up. A manifestation of worst fears come to life that's anxiety-filled, exhausting, and abstractly hysterical. Drags in the middle but hard not to be awed by its audaciousness.

    Wait, I got one more. A Jewish Christmas Carol about a man who’s been raised to be afraid of the world.

    Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse


    Just don't understand why anyone would want a live action superhero film after seeing something as beautifully rendered, emotionally cogent, and wall-to-wall exhilarating as this movie. Breathtakingly gorgeous, love that the filmmakers' big takeaway from the last Spider-Verse was to lean even further into abstracted, color-splash backgrounds that underscore how the characters are feeling. Every frame a painting and whatnot. Think they could have easily wrapped up at least one of the main stories in order to give this movie its own arc, but even if it's only half a movie, it's half of a really, really excellent movie.

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent


    Pretty bold to make your movie a big ode to Nic Cage and fundamentally misunderstand what makes him interesting as an actor. Genuinely feel bad for Cage, whose idiosyncrasies are reduced down to “randomly yells really loud.” The thing that occasionally makes his performances funny is Nic Cage can operate at a different rhythm from the film he’s in or the other actors around him. His choices are incredibly hard to predict. He’ll take a quiet moment and make it…
