Reviews by Jack Holloway:
It’s like a good high school movie, like Mean Girls or Risky Business. It’s exactly what it should be: fun, without lacking real depth.
It’s surprising how relevant this movie feels, even 20 years later. But it’s not just nostalgia or deep themes that keep bringing us back, it’s everything!
A Quiet Place is heart-wrenching, suspenseful, and innovative. Both compelling and thrilling, it’s one of the best horror movies to come along in a long time.
Christine, a.k.a. Lady Bird is at once unique and familiar, charming and incorrigible. Director Gerwig’s wit and promise suggests her best work is ahead of her.
Sofia Coppola is a true master. Even the most subtle moments in The Beguiled are totally engrossing.
It’s a 1950s mystery that paints a familiar picture of an alarming relationship dynamic but resolves it in a welcome, unfamiliar way.
What could be a purely political film about a surveillance state is profoundly personal, capturing the longing of a daughter to know the truth of her father.
