Review: Ophelia

Despite a fantastic performance by Daisy Ridley and some solid filmmaking, Ophelia drowns in a sea of plot conveniences and lazy writing.

Review: Yesterday

Yesterday is a missed opportunity wrapped in the accessible and enjoyable wrappings of a standard rom-com.

Review: Late Night

Late Night is a funny, endearing, and likable comedy of overcoming adversity led by two hilarious women

Review: Meeting Gorbachev

An engaged, thoughtful and occasionally biased look at the complex legacy of Mikhail Gorbachev and the Soviet Union.

Review: Rocketman

A blend of wonderful imagination and genuine heart, send Rocketman soaring to musical heights.

Review: Aladdin (2019)

Without comparison, Guy Ritchie's Aladdin comes off as a stilted attempt at something greater, and with comparison, it is but an adaptation of inferior quality.

Review: Booksmart

Olivia Wilde steps behind the camera and delivers a confident debut feature that delicately balances raunchy comedy and sincere teenage emotions.

[Tribeca Review]: Luce

Luce brings up a more layered and complex view on race than typical Hollywood movies including certain Best Picture winners in recent history, are willing to tackle.

Review: Tolkien

Tolkien offers a superficial look at the inspirations and talents of the great author.

[Tribeca Review]: Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Extremely Wicked...suggests a different perspective on the Bundy story but fails to deliver on such promises instead presenting a misguided sympathetic view of the notorious serial killer

Review: Pet Sematary (2019)

Despite a few good ideas, the latest Pet Sematary adaptation starts mediocre and gets worse as it goes along.

Review: Shazam

Shazam reminds us of what it means to be a superhero in one of the best movies the genre has seen to date

Review: Dumbo (2019)

Visually delightful, but emotionally underwhelming, Dumbo remains a solid showcase of Tim Burton’s unique cinematic style.

Review: Gloria Bell

Gloria Bell offers up nothing especially extravagant but gets by on the warmth and relatability Julianne Moore brings to the title role

Review: Us

Bigger and bolder, if slightly less refined, than his debut, Jordan Peele delivers another marvelous horror experience in his sophomore outing.
