    Inu-oh

    "All of Yuasa’s typical hallmarks are present here: sudden bursts of hyperviolence, shocking uses of vibrant color, extremely stylized faces. Inu-Oh has a much more deliberate pace when compared to some his other work, like Devilman Crybaby or Night Is Short, Walk On Girl, for example. Everything is a bit slower.

    Thor: Love and Thunder

    "Full disclosure: Thor is one of my favorite Marvel characters (still around in the MCU), Thor: Ragnarok is one of my favorite MCU movies, Waititi is one of my favorite directors, and Chris Hemsworth has become one of my favorite actors.

    "It is a shame, then, that a figure as inspiring as Pauli Murray is rendered with such uninspiring filmmaking. The documentary is simply not cinematic enough. It is bogged down by lengthy on-screen text — quotes, love letters, bills, newspaper cuttings, doctors’ reports, legal documents, you name it — that, coupled with the overreliance on slow pans across archive photographs, stunts the film’s rhythm and makes it visually flat. Devices that are initially effective, such as tension-building split screens that show Murray facing off with powerful, sometimes ideologically opposed figures, grow tired through excessive use."
