    The Humans

    ★★★½

    A well acted, well shot, and well written film, yet I didn’t love it. The Humans is a domestic drama filmed like a horror movie. The concept is great but I wish the movie went further with it. I enjoyed the sharp script but the pacing was very slow. The natural performances in some ways worked against the film which is a critique of the direction.

    What a huge surprise! I wasn’t expecting this to be bad but I also wasn’t expecting it to be one of the best films of the year.

    Kristen Stewart gives the best performance I’ve seen so far this year. The score by Johnny Greenwood is magnificent and amplifies the anxiety of the film. The cinematography is downright gorgeous, every shot feels so carefully composed. This is the best looking movie of the year so far as well.
