    Verhoeven is so consistent at this point that just everything he drops is "vintage Verhoeven!" Pure delightful sacrilege and just about the funniest fucking thing I've seen all year. Its bawdy intellect is balanced so well with the heightened melodrama. Couldn't believe how quickly it was moving by in the moment too. It's one of Verhoeven's most brisk films. Virginie Efira gives one of the most commanding performances of the year as well. She pulls the focus of the camera with such conviction. Not much more to say on this. Everything you could need out of a Verhoeven nunsploitation film.

    Add another fat win for cinematic Macbeth adaptations. Feels distinctly fresh in a way that’s hard to pin down. Everyone here makes a tale as old as time somehow feel like something they've brilliantly improvised into something totally new. Like they just Frankenstein-style resurrected Bergman into the Royal Shakespeare Theatre Company. A crazy ruthless lucid dream crafted by some of the greatest artists in the world in unison with one another like a ritual that casts a violent spell. Kathryn Hunter MVP.

    Insufferable. Nepotism baby Levinson tries to be Cassavetes by using a black couple as his mouthpieces because he got his ego bruised by negative reviews for a bad movie he made. This goes around and around in circles watching boring people in a boring house argue and trivialize each other for 106 FUCKING MINUTES (arguably 30 minutes more than it ever needed to be). An obnoxious, annoying and profoundly self-conscious piece of work that is devoid of any qualities to…
