    The Proposition

    ★★★½

    The Proposition is a very dark, very brutal film. But there is nothing over the top about it. This is not Tarantino kind of violence. This feels real. 

    But it’s not just the violence that feels fully authentic. Guy Pierce, Ray Winstone, and Danny Huston all give life to their very multi-dimensional characters.

    JoJo Rabbit is full of quirky characters that inhabit a bright, colorful world that pops off the screen. Its coming-of-age tale is…

    Pain and Glory

    ★★★★

    Leading up to awards season, I was vaguely aware of this film and of the accolades Antonio Banderas had been receiving for his performance in this semi-autobiographical Pedro Almodóvar flick. I didn't, however, know anything of Almodóvar's life and had previously seen only Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down (which I was not especially fond of) and The Skin I Live In (which I loved).

    I didn't really know what to expect, but I given the subjects of those other…
