Songbird (2020)

Songbird pushes buttons that feel ugly and inappropriate, all of which makes giving the film any sort of fair assessment difficult to do.

The Stand In (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 11th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

The Stand In moves through the motions with a plodding laboriousness that grows increasingly irritating, and almost all of the supporting players are never around long enough to make anything more than a passing impression.

Mank (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 4th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Mank is nothing more than a metaphorical celluloid sled of failed dreams and misguided ambition burning to ash in a fiery furnace fueled by frustratingly combustible emptiness.

Sound of Metal (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 4th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

There is a breathless sonic majesty to Darius Marder’s superb Sound of Metal that left me a discombobulated mess long after the drama had ended.

Happiest Season is a comfortingly romantic present almost guaranteed to bring its recipient joy, and all things considered in a year overflowing with humbug this small gift of holiday cheer is more than enough to satisfy.

Let Him Go is a quiet meditation on grief, forgiveness, regret and family that managed to leave something of a noticeable impression, tragedy, joy, misery and sacrifice all melding into one, powerfully impactful emotional response richly deserving of a few empathetic tears.

The Craft: Legacy (2020)

I enjoyed what Lister-Jones accomplishes with The Craft: Legacy even if not everything she conjures up successfully manifests. There’s magic being performed by this quartet of young witches, and here’s my hope that the target audience is there to bear witness.

His House is something special, the line between forgiveness and punishment an ethereal enigma that’s as haunting as it is imperceptible.
