    ★★★★

    The zoomed-out orientation, voyeuristic steady-cam, and mixed-media shots are all terrifically ominous and gaunt. But it's the Bergmanesque portraits, sparingly offered, that allow Haneke to (per his usual) share the unspeakable.

    ★★★★½

    Greta Gerwig is a generational treasure. The way in which she allows character self-discovery through the ebb-and-flow of conflicts and revelations is almost gratuitous at this point because of how fluidly Lady Bird, and now Little Women, assume form. I love the non-linear story-telling and color tones throughout the entire film — a wonderful contemporary stewardship of a literary classic.

    Ad Astra

    ★★★★

    Beautifully shot and a worthwhile stage in outer space for psychological plumbings into loneliness and self-actualizarion...but difficult to be that impressed with the modern sheen after having seen Tarkovsky’s Solaris.
