    U – July 22

    ★★★★

    Oh man this Utøya 22 July film is so frighteningly intense it made me sick to my stomach. An utterly harrowing one-long-take immersive film about the horrible massacre on the island in Norway. Can finally take a breath.

    Becoming Astrid

    ★★★★

    Well this was great. Beautifully told Swedish film about the struggles of a young Astrid Lindgren, writer/creator of Pippi Longstocking. Outstanding performance by Alba August, lovely score by Nicklas Schmidt.

    Isle of Dogs

    ★★★★½

    Yeah so Isle of Dogs is extra funky, pro-dog stop-motion excellence. A truly one-of-a-kind Wes Anderson creation. Love the Japanese drummer score.

    ★★★★★

    One of the best Sundance Midnight films I've seen in years. This film rules!!
