    Leave No Trace

    ★★½

    Interesting to look at next to First Reformed, A Quiet Place, and Annihilation — I cant think of another year with such a concentration of serious independent films about despair, particularly a kind of ecological despair: the sickness unto death on a planet hurtling into the sun. Kierkegaard takes on a renewed urgency in a world in which the pinnacles of human technological achievement have created the conditions of our destruction.

    So completely schematic, shiny, and dull that it might be the work of a modernist genius. Desire is purely abstract. A movie is made of only other movies. I am losing my mind.

    A long, tedious YAAAS QUEEN for the Hillbilly Elegy crowd.

    Heaven Knows What

    ★★★★½

    This, Daddy Longlegs, and Good Time are the three best New York movies of the 2000s. Real termite art, reshaping the way you see the city, burrowing into your head and every newsstand, movie theater, White Castle, parking lot, and bodega you walk by.
