    Happiest Season

    ★★

    It’s a credit to Stewart and Plaza that they get out of Happiest Season alive. They’re also the only two people who demonstrate anything close to human behavior.

    What a gross simplification of an incredibly complicated issue.

    Minari

    ★★½

    Well-acted, handsome, and pretty programmatic in texture, structure, and narrative. Almost set entirely in one location, but really missing a sense of place despite its insistence on a regional philosophy. The immigrant beats are ok, but they’re as often broad as they are specific especially with the twerp main kid. I wanted more of pretty much everyone except the main kid.

    Kind of A24’s The Southerner for better and for worse.

    ★★

    Absolutely not. 

    Only aggressively terrible for about five minutes but aggressively dull for the rest of the time.

    The Irishman

    ★★★★

    “She’s afraid of me at times.”

    “We’re brothers, right.”
