The Favourite (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 7th, 2018 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Not going to mince words: I’m in love with idiosyncratic director Yorgos Lanthimos’ mind-bending historical drama-comedy-thriller-satire-political commentary oddity The Favourite.

Roma (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 5th, 2018 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Roma is a feast. It is a feast for the eyes. It is a feast for the senses. Most of all, writer/director Alfonso Cuarón’s latest is a feast for the soul, this meditative marvel of memory, regret, friendship, family, history and love a majestic treasure trove of emotion that is stunning in its empathetically human largess.

The Guilty (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 19th, 2018 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

The Guilty asks tough questions about right and wrong that straddle the line between good and evil with heartrending clarity, and no matter how selflessly pure the act innocence and guilt still mix via an uneasy symbiotic relationship with neither attribute able to exist without the companionship of its polar opposite sibling.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2018 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

The simple truth is that there is more happening inside of The Miseducation of Cameron Post than initially meets the eye, its ability to tackle so many varying thematic ideas with such appealingly awkward élan incredible…Akhavan has delivered one of the best films I’ll see in 2018, and I have a sneaky suspicion this is one teenage drama I’m going to be waxing poetic about for many years to come.

Blindspotting (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2018 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

I love Blindspotting. It’s the kind of film I want to stand up and cheer the moment the end credits come up on the screen, the type of nail-biting human drama I wish studios made more of and the kind of incisive, take-no-prisoners satire viewers of all persuasions owe it to themselves to take a chance on and see.

Tully (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 3rd, 2018 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Tully builds to a shattering climax that brought a cascade of tears to my eyes, Marlo’s destination as cathartic, and as gut-wrenching, as any I could have imagined it would be before the film began.

Lean on Pete (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 13th, 2018 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

The bitter truths of life’s regrets and hardships are all ones Charlie gets to look upon with a forceful clarity that is rare for a teenager to experience, his ability to persevere and still cling onto the aspirational hopes and dreams of a future adulthood that’s right around the corner unforgettably inspiring.

A Fantastic Woman (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 23rd, 2018 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

A Fantastic Woman dives into the Transgender experience in a way that is refreshing in its subtle, naturalistic simplicity, Marina’s everyday struggle to unapologetically be herself achieving a dignified universality that’s all-encompassing in its sympathetic warmth.

Paddington 2 (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 12th, 2018 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

I might even go so far as to proclaim Paddington 2 pretty much perfect, but let me indulge in one more marmalade sandwich before I make the decision to say just that.
