Review: They Shall Not Grow Old

An astounding technical achievement in film restoration, Peter Jackson’s They Shall Not Grow Old is an emotionally superb embrace of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Yorgos Lanthimos shakes up the historical period drama with The Favourite, a darkly hilarious character study led by three amazing lead performances.

Review: Stan & Ollie

Jon S. Baird’s heartfelt tribute to Laurel and Hardy delivers a most touching view of the extraordinary professional and personal relationship between these icons.

Review: Vice

Vice covers everything but develops almost nothing to a satisfying end in its wildly inconsistent portrait of the former vice president.

Review: Glass

Glass has the potential to make for a satisfying culmination of Shyamalan’s best ideas however, his ambitions may be too lofty, resulting in an underwhelming outcome.

Neither Clint Eastwood nor The Mule itself are the flashiest or most sophisticated effort you'll ever see but the familiarity of their approach lends itself to a satisfying result nonetheless
