    ★½

    Kate McKinnon once again proves she can elevate even the driest material. God bless queen Kate.

  • Three Colors: Red

    Three Colors: Red

    ★★★★★

    The culmination of Kieslowski's Trois Couleurs trilogy, 'Red' is a true tour de force. Thought-provoking, it meditates on the consequences of romance, wryly visualizing the extreme of "meant to be" or chance encounters by juxtaposing this fatalistic moment with tragedy.

    ★★★½

    Oscillates between horror-comedy and grief narrative in a resonant way... an interesting take on motherhood's position in the horror genre.

  • The Edge of Seventeen

    The Edge of Seventeen

    ★★★½

    Strong performance from Steinfeld, great writing...until the ending, which has to be the most banal, generically teen rom-com ending possible. "NOW SHE HAS BOY SHE CAN LIKE HERSELF."
