Quick Take: BELLUM: THE DAEMON OF WAR
Interesting at times, but frustratingly empty.
Quick Take: CLARA SOLA
The film slowly but intriguingly connects Clara to the beauty and mystery of nature.
Review: MIDNIGHT MASS
This became Mike Flanagan’s best project to date.
Quick Take: SHOP
It’s all too slow and lacking in energy.
Quick Take: A CASTLE FOR CHRISTMAS
Brooke Shields and Cary Elwes try to give it a wee bit of charm.
Quick Take: HOUSE OF GUCCI
Colorful, but not dark or outlandish enough.
Review: THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD
If this is Joachim Trier selling out, he should do it more often.
Quick Take: TICK, TICK… BOOM!
Staged to great effect by Lin-Manuel Miranda, making this movie an overlong but still very enjoyable show with energetic music numbers.
