Henri Charrière’s story may not be altogether truthful. But so what?
Quick Take: The Curse of La Llorona
A few shocks deliver, but not enough to stand out.
One learned never to underestimate her. Persona (1966) became perhaps her most brilliant effort.
Review: The Florida Project
It’s a journey to misery and heartbreak, but a compelling one.
Quick Take: Balloons Over Babylon
A welcome look at everyday life in Baghdad, but its attempts at creating suspense over every snag are unconvincing.
Review: My Man Godfrey
There is an edge to the film, but above all it’s an excellent, elegant example of screwball comedy at its finest.
Quick Take: Varda by Agnès
Fans of this ”mother of the French New Wave” will be in awe of her sympathetic, intelligent presence.
Quick Take: The Highwaymen
A fitfully interesting story that suffers from a bloated running time and lackluster treatment.
