    Kore-eda Hirokazu conducts the storytelling smartly, using the remarkable screenwriting as a way to slowly reveal layers and different readings of the characters. It's all miraculously moving and gratifying.

    No Hard Feelings


    Nothing new when it comes to studio comedies but it's decently funny & sweet. Zags enough when you'd expect it to zig so formulaic wouldn't necessarily be the right description. Lawrence & Feldman are good, some of the cinematography is bad.

    This horrendously written, directed and acted spinoff can't find a single reason to exist or inhabit its own dystopia. It's thematically incomprehensible and perhaps better if you don't see it.

    Warning: watching this might cause you Spain without the S.

    Visually goes beyond its budget, production design being the highlight, but falls apart on the page. Unimaginative drama and poorly written dialogue swallow the characters whole.
