    Shirkers. What a unique and powerful exploration of art, creative ambition, and self-discovery. The story is genuinely fascinating, and it’s laid out with remarkable, quirky curiosity. One of the best documentaries of 2018.

    Green Book

    ★★★★

    Green Book soars as an entertaining and compelling film thanks to two brilliant performances. Ali and Mortensen are two of the best of the year. It may be full of all the tropes of racial dramas, but it’s told with plenty of humor and heart. Effortlessly crowd-pleasing.‬

    It’s inspirational and easy-going, but truly effective. I loved Green Book.
