    A Quiet Place

    ★★★★

    Incredible tension and atmosphere make this a really engaging experience. The environment of everything being silent really ratchets up the tension, as you know that one false step can be calamitous. The opening is particularly great, and it's quite briskly paced at about 1:30. I did have a couple plotting issues, but nothing too major.

    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).

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★½

    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…
