Destroyer (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 25th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Thanks in large part to Kidman’s internalized tenacious ferocity, Destroyer became a cold-blooded thriller I had no wish to tear my eyes away from, its final moments a haunting nightmare of agony, regret and retribution that, while not original, remained intimately effective all the same.

If Beale Street Could Talk (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 25th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

But the majesty of If Beale Street Could Talk is in the mystifying discoveries Jenkins asks the viewers to make on their own. In the end this is a glorious treatise on more than just race in America, more than a dissertation on wealth, privilege and gender inequalities and what individuals and families go through in order to conquer them. It is an examination of who we are as a society, the best and worst of our tendencies all shimmering through in one way or another as this story of love, tragedy and family plays out to conclusion.

On the Basis of Sex (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 25th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

On the Basis of Sex is also a magnificent showcase for Jones, the talented actresses giving one of the best performances of her career, making this examination of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s early judicial exploits a rousing success I couldn’t help but love.
