60% Some Beasts (Algunas Bestias) (2019) Metaphorical Some Beasts doubtlessly is ⁠- the upper classes go to pieces when the lower orders are absent ⁠- but organic, dramatically coherent and convincing it unfortunately is not. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

100% Vitalina Varela (2019) Even if audiences find themselves adrift in the convolutions of the screenplay's non-linear narrative, there are near-incessant compensations in the form of Leonardo Simoes' cinematography. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

48% In Like Flynn (2019) A disgracefully entertaining romp that packs an unexpected emotional wallop. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2018
