No Safe Spaces

Conservatives cry over “cancel culture”

If you’re terribly saddened by the idea of Ben Shapiro, Milo Yiannopoulos and the like not being allowed to host rallies for their drinking-age fanboys on a campus near you, No Safe Spaces is the film for you.

Daybreak

Idiot Box

High School Apocalypse

“Daybreak” on Netflix

For the most part, “Daybreak” counts primarily as comfort food for teenage audiences. It mixes together a lot of familiar elements, coming out the other end as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off combined with “The Walking Dead” with a dash of Night of the Comet tossed in for good measure.

Pain & Glory

Film Review

Pain & Glory

Celebrated Spanish filmmaker offers “autofictional” story of celebrated Spanish filmmaker

Inward-looking and overwhelmingly elegiac in nature, Almodóvar’s Pain & Glory still manages to feel more like a life-affirming wake than a glum funeral—offering at least as much glory as pain.

Passing the Cape

“Batwoman” on The CW

So far, "Batwoman" has done an credible job finding an identity of its own and it gives longtime bat-fans some hope that there are still fresh stories left to tell in the Batman universe.

Jojo Rabbit

Film Review

Jojo Rabbit

Hitler was the funny one? Who knew?

Waititi’s gentle, big-hearted, humor-loving nature shines through from start to finish. If you can absorb the provocative joke at the center of it (Adolf Hitler as comic relief), Jojo Rabbit is a whole lot of wonderful in a very small package.

Halloween Around the Dial

Thursday is a crummy night for Halloween. It’s not on the weekend, so adults can’t go to any good parties. And it’s on a weeknight, so the kids have to go to school the very next morning. Since there’s no point in going out, you might as well just stay home and watch TV.

Hatidze Muratova

Film Review

Honeyland

To bee, or not to bee: that is the question

Shot over the course of three years, Honeyland follows Hatidze Muratova, an older woman of Turkish descent who scratches out a living as a wild beekeeper, hiking dutifully up the cliffsides to capture wild honeybees and spirit them back to her traditional, cone-shaped beehives.
