Deadpool 2

The Merc With a Mouth comes again

By
If you have no idea who freakin’ Shatterstar is, you’re still going to get some rock solid belly laughs out of Deadpool 2, but the deeper your knowledge of early-’90s comic books, the more you’re going to feel fan-serviced.

You Were Never Really Here

Film Review

You Were Never Really Here

Art house action flick and its main character both feel bad

By
You Were Never Really Here enters the genre of cathartically violent shoot-’em-up story of emotionally wounded assassins and their doomed betrayers/targets but fails to provide an overall logic to the bloody proceedings.

Final Portrait

Artistic biopic revels in surface details

By
Final Portrait is a microcosmic chamber drama, an old-fashioned two-hander in which two characters meet, interact and part company. It rarely dips below the surface, but—like a great many works of art—it’s a fascinating surface, nonetheless.

Film Review

Back to Burgundy

Siblings resolve family strife over a glass of wine in a French dramedy that goes down easy, evaporates quickly

By
Back to Burgundy may not be complex, but the bottle is awfully pretty. Just don’t go into it expecting something other than perfectly palatable table wine.

Isle of Dogs

Film Review

Isle of Dogs

Meticulously animated feature is a fantastic(al) journey

By
Akira Kurosawa’s scruffy aesthetic is undoubtedly what’s fueling Isle of Dogs’ creative engines. Feel free to discuss at length—over third wave, cold-brewed coffee, perhaps—whether Wes Anderson’s miniaturization of Japanese culture asks audiences to laugh with or at the stereotypes.
