  • Dunkirk

    Dunkirk

    ★★★★½

    A miracle. I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s sweeping, immersive, relentless, emotional, shocking (and so much more) beyond belief. In terms of pure filmmaking, It’s a jaw-dropping triumph and one of the most staggering achievements of the 21st century. Not hyperbole, nowhere near it.

    Noah

    ★★★★

    The arresting fashion in which Darren Aronofsky injects profundity into a predominantly superficial genre may be the most impressive accomplishment of the resplendent and epic Noah. Aronofsky, a filmmaker with the incessant purpose to innovate and redefine, puts forth one of his most divergent motion pictures but simultaneously one of his most mainstream with this re-imagining of Noah's ark. A true blockbuster on the surface, the sweeping temperament of Noah is uncommonly matched with intelligence and a bonafide, gravitating narrative…
