    The horrifying reality of the Mexican border has been repeatedly documented on film. The gruesome war on drugs was portrayed in Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario, while the intense danger of cartel gangs was seen in the Mexican drama Sin Nombre. Several movies that follow this topic most commonly have either thriller elements or a gritty tone, but first time director Fernanda Valadez introduces a fresh new voice, possibly the most raw and genuine one yet.

    Valadez, who also pens the screenplay,…

    Chances are, if you’ve ever read a ‘Greatest Movies Ever’ list, Citizen Kane is on there.

    Could had been Movie of the Year if it hadn’t had so much generic and convenient storytelling to it. Kicks off well in the beginning and then slowly becomes too soapy and flat. BUT the script does contain one of the funniest sex jokes I’ve ever heard.

    Everything else here is amazing: performances, production design, the mood and style. I still fell under its spell. This is the ideal romantic movie to watch with your partner on date night. Well, almost ideal.

    This is some devilish shit! Emerald Fennell’s feminist revenge thriller succeeds in being provocative with its unapologetically wicked story. Starts off intriguing enough and steady, then goes full throttle towards an insane final hour full of surprises, ultimately leaving a feeling that lingers on long after experiencing it. Carey Mulligan has never been better. For those who are repelled by the concept, fear not, for this is one of the year’s best.
