83% Midsommar (2019) If you want to be terrified and overly anxious about the arbitrary nature of our cultural rituals, which include watching scary movies that reflect our world back at us (through a glass, in this case, brightly), then go see Midsommar at any time of day. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

88% Another Day of Life (2019) At times, the animation artfully and seamlessly gives way to real-world interviews with the film's subjects, many of whom are still alive, which is something I've never quite seen before. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

60% Ramen Heads (2018) However, as a character and a vessel for storytelling, Tomita doesn't really hold much interest. He's an exacting chef and a taskmaster who runs an extremely successful restaurant. That's about it. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

97% Columbus (2017) Allow writer and director Kogonada to take you on a bizarrely fascinating, visually stunning, and subtly sensual tour of Columbus, Indiana's modernist architecture. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

90% The Witch (2016) The Witch wants to be jump-out-and-scare-ya scary in addition to being dreadful-scary, but it's not. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

No Score Yet Even Though the Whole World Is Burning (2015) Though the doc lacks any real tension-it suffers a little from trying to cover the whole life (thus far) of a guy who did a whole lot-many different kinds of audiences will find something to love. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

93% Notfilm (2015) Watching dynamics play out is fascinating, as is seeing the never-before-seen backstage bleaknesses, but just make sure you bring a cup of coffee when you see the show. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

78% Author: The JT LeRoy Story (2016) The documentary is, among many things, a test of trust and sympathy. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

92% A Quiet Passion (2017) Skip the movie, and spend an hour reading her poems instead. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT
