    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★

    Certanly something. Riley’s absurdist satire is wildly uneven and yet features some of the most inspired filmmaking of the year. Not sure it works (find myself thinking of Bodied as something more consistent in a similar political arena), but it’s a RIDE.

    The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter

    ★★½

    I’m of two minds about Jody Hill’s long awaited return. At first glance it’s a perfectly serviceable and quietly moving look at masculinity and fatherhood, yet it’s so sterile in its style much of it feels as if it’s from another filmmaker. Feels stiff in a way not like his previous films. Fine. Disposable.

    Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    ★★★★½

    Entertaining, sexy, and utterly gorgeous, the film may be all eye candy, but it's some of the sweetest and most charming candy one could consume. If this movie had a face I'd kiss it. (A-)
