    ★★★★

    Searching's structure and technique plays out very well for it. It soars at making viewers pick it apart at the seams to find out something new as well.

    However, it also brings very little to the thriller genre in terms of the actual story. Its John Cho that carries the weight of the film as a distraught father seeking to find his daughter and moreover, it's him that makes us care enough to keep watching.

    ★★★★★

    Stunning, strange and surreal, The Favourite soars as Stone and Weisz play royal rivals scheming to win the favor of the Queen.

    Lantimos has come to be one of my favorite directors and this film is a testament to his abilities as a director as he masterfully crafts a comedy about both the strength and vulnerability of three women just wanting to keep it together.

    Support the Girls

    ★★★★

    Support The Girls is both a breath of fresh air and a wake-up call to the world about women in the workplace.

    Regina Hall, Haley Lu Richardson and Shayna McHale are a triple threat and the underdogs to see in this documentary-esque comedy about girls supporting themselves and most importantly, girls supporting each other.

  • Hearts Beat Loud

    Hearts Beat Loud

    ★★★

    Hearts Beat Loud is a feel-good flick that feels more like a music video (or almost musical) than anything. Though it almost feels prolonged more than necessary, the nuanced impact and warmth of its themes of love, loss and learning to let go keep the film feeling fresh when it's tired tropes start to wear you down.
