    The Irishman

    ★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A lesson in ethics that maintains that calling emptiness empty is a profound civic virtue rather than  a desperate way of coping with high-tech boredom.

  • Joker

    Joker

    ★★★

    Authentically upsetting in its composed assault on the predilections of its audience, this is an original work in spite of its borrowed tropes from Lang & Lorre (M), Leni & Veidt (The Man Who Laughs), and Scorsese (Taxi Driver, The King of Comedy) because of its meditative distance from its ugly themes.

    A.I. Artificial Intelligence

    ★★★★★

    Only Kubrick and Spielberg, working together on different time planes, could create such a philosophical and intellectual heartbreaker.

  • The Other Side of the Wind

    The Other Side of the Wind

    ★★★★★

    Scary, elusive, easy to misunderstand, and radical.
