    Polytechnique

    ★★★★½

    Movies 2018 - 105. Polytechnique (written by Jacques Davidts, Denis Villeneuve, and Eric Leca; directed by Denis Villeneuve)

    🌮🌮🌮🌮 1/2 (4 1/2 tacos)

    An unstable misogynist executes several female engineering students in a mass shooting. On December 6, 1989, fourteen women were killed at École Polytechnique in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. This is the deadliest mass shooting in Canadian history. This shooting is the basis for Denis Villeneuve’s shockingly powerful, Polytechnique. Villeneuve, even early in his career, could masterfully craft a…

    American Assassin

    ★★★

    Movies 2018 - 100. American Assassin (2017; written by Stephen Schiff, Michael Finch, Edward Zwick, and Marshall Herskovitz; directed by Michael Cuesta; based upon the novel by Vince Flynn) 

    🌮🌮🌮 (3 tacos)

    After his girlfriend is killed while vacationing, an American falls in with an elite counterterrorism unit. It’s not that the entirety of American Assassin is bad. The film we get is a serviceable action flick. It doesn’t really do anything new. In fact, many elements seem to have…
