    Mikey and Nicky

    ★★★★

    A comedy so dark it borders on existential horror, this is a two-hander about two awful men who only have each other, and the desperate circumstances that lead them to make irreparable, damaging decisions. 

    There’s an essay for someone smarter than me about a movie with such misogynist (or at least disrespectful) characters written by a woman.

    Green Book

    ★★★½

    Better than the critics trashing it say, but not as good as the audiences who voted it their favorite film at TIFF said. It’s basically Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Jim Crow Edition, which keeps things lively. The PG-13 rating removes any real sense of danger, which would have been very real for a black gay man in the South. But Ali and Mortensen are so good, they make it better than it’s on-the-nose script.

    ★★★★½

    A transcendent comic book movie that's boiling over with rage and bitterness. It both ties a bow on and undoes all the previous X-Men and Wolverine movies in a way that finally gives this undying series some closure. Hugh Jackman has never been better.

    Get Out

    ★★★★½

    A stellar debut, succeeding both as horror and satire. Jordan Peele has a long, bright future ahead of him behind the camera.
