    Richard Jewell

    ★★★

    Richard Jewell was accused by the FBI and convicted by the media, before he ever had a chance to defend himself. It's a sad case of an aggressive rush to judgment coupled with an investigation run on dirty tricks and lies, that ruined the life of a would be hero.

    Sam Rockwell continues to prove why he's one of the best actors working today, carrying this film with another strong performance, while Kathy Bates will make you tear up in her portrayal of Jewel's mother, in this fact based story not even 25 years old.

    Bombshell

    ★★★

    Bombshell is a shocking yet relevant story amidst the proliferation of the "me too" movement. Depicting perhaps one of the most highly visible cases of sexual harassment, it's difficult to watch the struggle of women, victimized for the sake of their career. The performances here are strong, from a huge and stellar cast.

    It's always interesting to watch a film depict recent history from events that we can actually remember. So recent here, that hopefully it will make you think and try to understand the subject matter, and the horrible suffering of women in horrible situations.

    As the plot bubbles to full boil, just allow yourself to be immersed in this world as Tarantino crafts scene after scene with spot on dialogue amidst this visual spectacle. Its another great film by a great filmmaker.

    Joker

    ★★★★★

    Joker is dark, it's violent, it's disturbing, and it's brilliant! One huge reason it's brilliant is due to the performance of Joaquin Phoenix. He's in every scene, every frame, every shot, and his performance is otherworldly. He's unstable, troubled, and shunned by society, and it's fascinating to watch this original take on the supervillain we all know so well.

    In an age where new superhero films are released one after another, this film stands out as not just what the…
