    A Serious Man


    Definitely has its moments of greatness but kind of unsatisfying as a complete film.

  • Call Me by Your Name

    Call Me by Your Name


    Call Me by Your Name is, for the most part, a very solid film highlighted by a magnificent lead performance by Timothee Chalamet, a strong script, and some great moments of direction. Rating drops for me because I felt like the relationship between Elio and Oliver wasn't developed well enough in the first half of the film and, frankly, that it wasn't always believable, but nonetheless a very good film. Watching Chalamet as the credits role is a true treat…

    Wind River


    An effective slow burn mystery, Wind River is executed extremely well and boasts strong performances and direction. While this movie isn't particularly original or inventive at all, it does succeed at what it sets out to do well- in that regard it's very similar to the other films Sheridan has written, Sicario and Hell or High Water. Some particular highlights were Elizabeth Olsen, the flashback scene, and the score (as well as Sheridan's aforementioned direction).

  • Phantom Thread

    Phantom Thread


    As much as I appreciate some of the craftsmanship on display here, as well as the performances, I really just did not enjoy myself while watching this one. It's a ponderously paced film with shots that linger forever and scenes that stretch on and on, and while I really hate to use the boredom critique, it sadly applies here.
