    Turning Red

    ★★★

    Turning Red is the directorial debut by Canadian native Domee Shi. As a fellow Canadian, and a fellow Torontorian at that, this film was a real delight.

    Simultaneously engaging in the way its crafted and directed, but also oblique, fragmented and confusing.

    This film contains moments that are visceral and spellbinding. Nolan at his peak; a dynamic camera, practical sets and a pulse pounding score. You feel it in your bones, its impossible to turn away. Yet it also contains a script that is mostly exposition…
