Quick Take: Cruise Therapy
Like Father: The director’s feature debut is formulaic and offers no surprises, but it is also sweet.
Review: Under Hunt’s Skin
Mission: Impossible – Fallout: Chapter six certainly honors the predecessors but also has the courage to break new ground in some ways.
Review: Behind the Wallpaper
Through a Glass Darkly: There are only four actors in the film, but they all deliver tremendously effective performances.
Quick Take: Slim Pickings
Slender Man: It’s obvious that the filmmakers have no idea what to do with their skinny bogeyman.
Review: Listening and Judging
Red: Both Iréne Jacob and Jean-Louis Trintignant are very good; Krzysztof Kieslowski has written rich, solid characters for all three films.
Review: Silence is Golden
Persona: It’s like Ingmar Bergman is offering the complete fireworks of his mind.
Review: A Diabolical Tragedy
Hereditary: The greatest horror movie we’ve seen in many years.
Quick Take: The Stars Were Bright, Fernando
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again: Cher makes a true star appearance near the end as Donna’s glamorous mother.
Review: Life of a Ringmaster
Sawdust and Tinsel: It’s as if this film made Ingmar Bergman see the world in a grander (perhaps a bit more Italian?) way than his previous projects.
