    all kinds of charming. A great pairing with 'Heaven's Gate' on Criterion/Filmstruck.

    Sean Baker has made yet another compassionate, tough-nosed drama. TFP slowly hypnotizes the viewer with style and substance. The final scenes are stunning - the crowd in my theater was completely silent as credits rolled. A fantastic theatrical experience!

    A fitting bookend to several fantastic performances by Blanchett in 2015. Rooney Mara gives a quiet, stunning performance. Expression in the eyes often reminded me of Bel Powley in "Diary..."The score will be with me for a very long time.

    This film offers us an intimate perspective and becomes part of the history it is documenting by the end. I leaned further and further forward as the tension mounted to a chilling, eye-opening crescendo. The ending is a pitch perfect and left me thinking about my own privacy as I instinctively turned my phone on (and back onto the information highway) as I walked back to the car.
