    Leave Her to Heaven

    ★★★½

    When talking about Spielberg’s 2021 WEST SIDE STORY remake, one has to point out how astonishing it is that it is an incredible film when it features a truly terrible male lead performance.

Thank God I waited to see it in a theatre because it is an incredibly hypnotic experience. With overwhelming visuals and sparse but…
