    ★★★★

    Oh wow! Clemency isn't an easy watch but it sure deserves to be seen. I had to pause the opening of this film because I didn't think I'd be able to handle it.

    ★★★★

    I went into this film genuinely not knowing what to expect but a great performance from Sandler. I'm happy to report that the raving reviews about Sandler's performance are very much truth!! Howard is a character who makes bad decision after bad decision to the point of annoyance. However, Sandler's portrayal of Howard is done with such charisma that I couldn't take my eyes off him. I never thought I'd be writing a review about Adam Sandler giving a great…
