    The Black Phone

    ★★★★★

    In perhaps the best film of 2022, you will lose yourself in The Black Phone. The Black Phone ejects you into a haunting nightmare of abduction driven by Ethan Hawke's utter mastery. Hawke, who is one of the best actors alive, is the anchor of this story & boy does he hit. I can't think of an actor as spontaneous as Hawke & in this role, he shows you something new.

    ★★★★½

    Inspired by Adam Sandler's performance in Hustle, we revisited The Meyerowitz Stories only to realize how smart, bright & lovable Noah Baumbach's story remains. Dustin Hoffman is one of the most talented actors cinema has ever seen- that's a fact, not a statement of opinion; regardless of his personal issues in the last few years, The Meyerowitz Stories remind us that Hoffman is a generational force. Sandler & Stiller have fantastic chemistry and as usual, Baumbach's insight into family ties hits you right in the gut. What a lovable, delightful rewatch.

    ★★★★★

    As a masterful, gripping mystery thriller, The Batman smashes our already stout expectations. In the performance of his career, Pattinson is the perfect emo rendition of Bruce Wayne. Reeves displays brilliant direction as he takes audiences through a compact, detailed mystery. And without question, the cast is flawless. Not enough can be said about Zoe Kravitz, John Turturro, Jeffrey Wright, & Collin Farrel, but sorry, Paul Dano. Paul Dano, Paul Dano....and Paul Dano. We're so happy for Dano who, at 37, finally gets his shine in a massive blockbuster. Go see The Batman: it's a definitive comic book hit.

    Five minutes into ELVIS, you reach a thunderous realization: Austin Butler is a star. Through Austin Butler, Elvis lives. Expect serious Oscar consideration for Butler, who carries every second of this film. Rock biopics always fascinate & with Baz Luhrmann's twist, Elvis's music & the presence of Tom Hanks, ELVIS adds to an already great movie-summer
