I Want ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once” All of the Time

Michelle Yeoh as Evelyn Wang

I’m all for a comforting and predictable film. With the stresses of the last couple of years, watching a Marvel film or a rom-com speaks to me.

Review: ‘The Outfit’ Fits Just Right

In the age of extensive effects, massive budgets, and huge names, The Outfit director Graham Moore chose a quieter approach that is no less thrilling. The Outfit is a period gangster movie set in mid-’50s gangland Chicago. Filled with twists and turns, The Outfit will leave you guessing until the very end and keep you enthralled with capable performances from a plethora of talent…

Sundance 2022 Review: ‘You Won’t Be Alone’ Because This Movie Will Always Stay With You

When I see Jonathan Majors I know the intensity is sure to ramp up a few notches. And when I see Noomi Rapace, I know that I’ll be treated to a warped version of some mythic fairy tale that will scar me for life. You Won’t Be Alone does not disappoint.
