There is something triumphant about Reeves’ The Batman, and I do like where the film leaves the character before the screen fades to black. But so many aspects don’t come together, each refusing to resonate no matter how much I wished otherwise.
Cabaret: A decadent tale of sex, friendship, music, and fascism that’s as vital now as it was 50 years ago
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy has only gotten better with age.
The Burning Sea is a white-knuckle tale of people doing the incredible against impossible odds.
Catch the Fair One is essential. It is also a brutal knockout worthy of multiple viewings.
Kimi is a well-paced jolt of adrenaline that remembers to put character first, all without skimping on a single ounce of suspense.
Dune is a technical marvel, and Warner’s 4K presentation of Denis Villeneuve’s ambitious adaptation of roughly the first half of Frank Herbert’s novel is undeniably impressive.
Munich: The Edge of War is a handsome film, made with precision and care.
There’s nothing provocative about The Tender Bar. Even the bits that fell flat didn’t do so in a way that were so egregious I could get angry about them. I just wish that Clooney and Monahan had brought more to the production than just a general easygoing vibe that refuses to challenge and goes out of its way to not offend.
