    This movie is an insult to Kubrick and The Shining.

    The Autopsy of Jane Doe

    ★★★★★

    An intelligent horror film from the director of Trollhunter that subverts expectations by relying on mood and atmosphere rather than gore or jump scares. It explores some thought-provoking themes about the anonymity of death, the secrets we keep from one another, and the false guilt we carry.

    The Farewell

    ★★★★★

    Lulu Wang’s breakout directorial film THE FAREWELL navigates complex emotional and cultural terrain in poignant and elegiac fashion. Shot through impeccable Panavision closeups, Wang explores the process of grieving, the act of letting go, and the choice to lie in order to take on another’s emotional burden. It is a cinematic experience that does not espouse false dichotomies but maintains the central paradox of existence: life is both wedding and funeral. Loss is prologue to gain.
