    You Were Never Really Here

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The diverse score reveals a wider range of emotion than we see from any of the actors in the slow-paced revenge/rescue thriller. While brutally violent, a lot of the action you'd expect to see in a movie like this happens offscreen. The (second) ending felt like a cop out to me—a disappointingly happy resolution to a story that didn't need or deserve one. I left the theater laughing—really don't think I was supposed to. Time to Google Jonny Greenwood's score.

    ★½

    Ex-CIA martial arts master turned Chicago cop has a problem with authority and almost everyone... I guess this movie is the best of what Steven Seagal does before he plumped up.. Weird seeing Pam Grier (as his partner) and Sharon Stone (as his wife). Would have been a more interesting story if they focused at least half as much on these characters as the improbable violence.

    Annihilation

    ★★★½

    Ambitious and flawed. Unlike anything I’ve seen. Heady sci-fi with a premise that leaves many questions. This much is true: Natalie Portman is fully believable as scientist and soldier.
