    No Stone Unturned

    ★★★

    Not exactly a kinetic sort of procedural (most of the film centers around deciphering redacted and convoluted documents and missing key pieces of evidence). Still, it's righteous, and assuredly reckless. (I can see why this got pulled from festivals earlier in the year.) Fascinating in its own ways.

    A unique, one of a kind concert film with some of the best live event cinematography in recent memory.

    ★★★★★

    I don't think this has ever happened to me, but ten minutes after watching Brisgby Bear and thinking back on how lovely it was, I burst into uncontrollable tears on my walk home. Handily one of the most complex and life affirming films of the year and proof that sometimes that the world is not a cold, dead place. It's also dope as shit.

    It Comes at Night

    A predictable, tiresome, straight to VOD worthy story (just like many that already dot the VOD wastelands) that only works if you've never seen a survivalist thriller in your life told with pointless American indie movie sheen. Boring and useless from first frame to its unintentionally hilarious last frame. Decent performances and almost painfully rehearsed, but good looking cinematography save this from a zero star burial. It's the kind of film that thinks you're an idiot. The drop in quality from Krisha to this is akin to winning the lottery and then being forcibly given a back alley lobotomy.
