    Arguably Hitchcock's greatest work, "Vertigo" and "Psycho" be damned. Cary Grant is effortless, and while the corn field and Mount Rushmore set pieces are rightfully iconic, it's a smoldering conversation between Grant and Eva Marie Saint on the New York Central that keeps me returning over and over.

    A confident, vibrant, and outright hilarious debut from director Olivia Wilde. As best friends, Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein have a remarkable chemistry, and the rest of the cast — including a truly inspired Billie Lourd — shine just as bright. The overall result is one of the best teen comedies in years.

    ★★★★

    Sheer madness from the Safdie Brothers, with an Adam Sandler performance criminally ignored by the Oscars. While the ending flirts with being a bit cheap, the film as a whole is a master class in how medium close-ups can really stress you the fuck out.

    ★★★

    A muddled, overreaching, and astoundingly pretentious mess. Still, there's also a lot of talent on display and writer-director Richard Kelly’s sheer audacity is admirable.
