    mother!

    ★★★

    An incredibly frustrating film that leaves you feeling stressed out more than anything... So many working parts that never really lead to anything satisfying. Maybe that's the point, but that makes it no less tedious.

    The Unknown Girl

    ★★★½

    Once again the Dardennes offer the story of someone embarking on a quest in which the line between selfless and selfish is constantly under scrutiny and reevaluation. This one may not have the same ticking clock element as their last, 'Two Days, One Night,' but it's still captivating, due in large part to the watchability of the hero.

    Unbroken

    ★★

    How'd they take the story of a guy who was in the Berlin Olympics, served as a bombardier in WWII, survived 40-something days in a life raft after crashing into the ocean plus years as a POW in Japanese custody, and manage to make it so incredibly boring?
