  • A Quiet Place: Day One Review

    As different as Sarnoski’s two films are, a shadow of loss looms over Pig and A Quiet Place: Day One.

  • M3GAN Review

    M3GAN never forgets that it’s a horror movie, but it doesn’t ignore the silly nature of the premise either.

  • Nope Review

    Jordan Peele’s Nope is a cinematic spectacle in the spirit of Spielberg’s Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Jurassic Park.

  • Crimes of the Future Review

    Crimes of the Future has Cronenberg’s surreal stamp, but it lacks interesting enough characters and ideas to justify its sluggish pace or underwhelming resolution.

    How can someone call themselves a fan of Cronenberg and then be at a loss as to what he's doing here? Crimes of the Future not only continues his decade-long fascination with the human body and its complicated relationship with technology, sex and violence, but it finds Cronenberg at his most political, self-reflexive and comedic. The film is filled with fascinating ideas and images and this review refuses to engage with any of them. It's particularly telling that the one image the reviewer highlights (the ear-covered man) is mocked by the characters in the movie for being too obvious and on the nose. But I guess the reviewer missed that. It's also mind-boggling to see Mortensen's physicality be compared to that of a man half his age when he is dragging his feet, coughing, crouching in corners and struggling to eat for the entire movie. What film did the reviewer even watch??? This is one of the worst reviews I've read in years. Watch the film again.
