    Strange Days


    Not sure why Strange Days has become inaccessible for legal viewing in the U.S. outside of a public library, though it did make for a sorta fitting viewing experience for a movie about buried truths and voyeurism's illicit thrills.

  • Constantine



    I sorta suspect that this movie was a psy-op to make Catholicism look cool and edgy, but can't deny that it mostly succeeded at that. Flaming shotgun crossbow (emphasis on "cross") was a highlight.

    Top Gun


    Pretty slick for a movie whose main component parts are male toxicity, military propaganda and toy commercial aesthetics.

  • Men



    Much to think about…or maybe not very much to think about at all.

    Pete's Dragon


    Can't believe people are preemptively crediting Chloe Zhao with bringing Terence Malick to Disney when David Lowery already did that five years ago here.

  • The Underground Railroad

    The Underground Railroad


    Frequently striking by tv standards, and it's easy to see what might've attracted Jenkins to the material. In his hands, The Underground Railroad becomes another character journey from trauma-induced internality to a more emotionally open courage, not unlike the arcs of the protagonists in Moonlight and If Beale Street Could Talk. This is prestige tv through and through, though...a mechanically plotted season-long narrative that feels stretched despite how closely it hews to its source material, written in such a way…

    Another L for the increasingly desperate Snyder haters out there.

  • Profile



    First one back in theaters - seemed fitting to inaugurate the occasion with a Screenlife feature after the last year and change of screen life. A little less satisfying than the Unfriended diptych, which already looms large over this micro-genre; Profile by contrast definitely feels like a movie about Isis set in 2014, as told through a Western perspective and primarily via Skype (itself a relic of an earlier online era). The best moments here still confirm the dramatic potential…
