    Get Out

    ★★★★

    By this point, what more can I add to the discussion? Get Out is a sharp, entertaining horror movie that works on its own but also has a lot to say about the "sunken place" in our society.

  • Sgt Pepper's Musical Revolution

    Sgt Pepper's Musical Revolution

    ★★★

    This doc includes quite a few interesting stories about the making of the album, but Howard Goodall's constant presence can be distracting, especially when stands in the bottom-right corner of the frame as a weird digital narrator.

    ★★★★½

    After watching Blackhat so recently, I was amazed to remember that Mann did even more impressive visual work here. L.A. is gorgeous in this film, and Mann gets amazing mileage out of just shooting Foxx and Cruise in a car. I also forgot about brief cameos from Jason Statham and Javier Bardem, who owns the screen as the man behind the curtain.

    Paterson

    ★★★★

    Such a warm look at the everyday moments and connections between strangers in our daily lives. It's refreshing to live in Paterson's world and meet the people he encounters. They're artists, but not the usual types that we see on the screen. It's an uplifting story without being obvious.
