Breathtakingly complex, sensitive, honest, and painful. Surely one of the best films of the year.
Great cast, meh script, but sort of charming in spite of itself.

A rather ambitious entry in the canon (bobsled chase, anyone?), unintentionally tragicomic.

Thoughtful, carefully crafted documentary as much about food as family.

A satisfying chapter, even if some of the logic doesn’t hold together. MacAvoy and Fassbender always a pleasure.
Reminiscent of Sliding Doors but less successful.
From which I learned that if you really want to kill a guy, stab first, then shoot.
Excessively excessive, but Sharon Stone is right on the money.

Not without faults (esp. the casting of Ansel Elgort), but they are entirely made up for by Shailene Woodley’s star.

Much better than the first and so pivotal to the Avengers storyline. Fantastical and fun. Plus, Redford!

A seminal commentary on the swinging ’60s that echoes much of its oft-overlooked predecessor, The Knack… and How to Get It.

A darker Wes Anderson vision than we’ve come to expect, but a welcome one. (Willem Dafoe scarier than ever!)

There are no second acts, and in this film certainly no third. The camera is relentless; you’ll squirm until the very bitter end.
