  • The Italian Job

    The Italian Job

    ★★★

    A generally well-received, action-packed heist flick with an all-star cast, serving as a tribute to the 1969 British film of the same name. The Italian Job is serviceable and entertaining as a whole, but it fails to unlesh the entirety of its dynamic by playing too much by the books whenever it shouldn’t, and taking some bizarre plot choices.

  • Wind River

    Wind River

    ★★★★★

    A mystery kind of thriller about an FBI agent and a local wildlife officer's investigation of a girl's death at an Indian Reservation in Wyoming. The Taylor Sheridan-curated Wind River captivates with a visually-arresting, character-driven drama that can be hazy, haunting, philosophical and suspenseful all at once. The storyline unravels beautifully, with a nice pacing and an engaging build-up that eventually turns into a stressful, edge-of-the-seat affair, combined with some delicious food-for-thought about human existence, grief and the unfairness of…
