    ★★★

    Nicely paced and tastefully artistic, Monster is far better than it should have been. With an over-abundance of courtroom dramas and social justice pieces in today’s cinematic landscape, we really didn’t need another. Then again, with a message that continues to be so chronically relevant some three years after its debut, perhaps we did.

    ★★★★

    Definitely showing its age with some stilted dialogue and overly dramatic acting - but that music and dancing!

    The Last Shift

    ★★★

    Don’t expect a big statement movie with a lot of grandiose things to say about a lot of heady topics. It’s not that kind of film. The Last Shift is content with its place as an ambling little story about something real and meaningful – about two people whose intersecting lives demand they search for a common purpose in a small American town where opportunities are few and empathy is lacking.

    ★★★★★

    It's long but I was glued to the screen for the entire 154 minutes. Extremely brutal, heartbreakingly beautiful, and one of DiCaprio's best to date. Well deserving of its hard R rating as it's more graphic than any horror movie you'll ever see.
