Killers of the Flower Moon (2023)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 19th, 2023 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Scorsese looks the audience in the eye, daring us to turn away, knowing that if we do, then we’re not only willing to purposefully not learn from our rancid and racist history but, even more appallingly, we’re ready to forgive it, too.

The Creator (2023)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 28th, 2023 - Movie Reviews
