2/4 The Warrior Queen of Jhansi (2019) Jim Batts ...this retelling feels like a better than average offering on a basic cable TV educational channel offering, only worth watching for the dazzling heroics of Ms. Bhise in the title role. EDIT

4/4 Ford v Ferrari (2019) Cate Marquis While the race to beat Ferrari drives the plot, there is a moving human story at the center, one of personal struggle, of friendship and family. There are moments of transcendence and the poignancy, particularly at the film's haunting end. EDIT

3/4 Judy (2019) Cate Marquis Although Zellweger has little actual resemblance to Garland, she is transformed by excellent make up and her stunning performance, creating so convincing an impersonation that one feels like you are watching Judy Garland herself. EDIT

Posted Aug 23, 2019
3.5/4 After the Wedding (2019) Cate Marquis It is a family drama but one filled with complicated people and difficult choices, where there are no good guys or bad guys, just flawed people striving to make the best of the circumstances. It is a refreshing approach. EDIT

4/4 David Crosby: Remember My Name (2019) Cate Marquis No matter what you think of David Crosby personally, this musical journey is a long strange trip well worth taking. EDIT
Posted Aug 16, 2019

Posted Aug 5, 2019
4/4 La chute de l'empire Américain (2018) Cate Marquis ...a thoughtful, good-hearted film full of unexpected turns, that has something in particular to say and it says it in a gentler, subtler way than most social satires might. EDIT
Posted Aug 5, 2019
2/4 Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love (2019) Cate Marquis There is often a shallow, tabloid feel to this biographical film. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2019
4/4 The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019) Cate Marquis For those with patience and open to this film's lyricism and sweetly sad dreamy metaphor, The Last Black Man in San Francisco has many rewards. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2019
4/4 Sword of Trust (2019) Cate Marquis Director Shelton does a masterful job. She draws us in with the humor then throws us off balance, upending assumptions and turning things around every time we get too comfortable. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2019
1/5 Cold Blood (2019) Cate Marquis Reno does his best with this sorry material, and he manages to milk a few good moments; overall the cast is good but there is only so much they and Reno can do with this sloppily cobbled together story. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
4/5 Late Night (2019) Cate Marquis Kaling and Thompson are good in their scenes together, although their characters are often on dual tracks. The more affecting scenes are between Thompson and Lithgow... EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019

Posted Jul 29, 2019
2.5/5 The Tomorrow Man (2019) Cate Marquis Despite the two excellent leads, this disappointing film has little charm or sense. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
4.5/5 The White Crow (2018) Cate Marquis ...a taut dramatic thriller that is as much about overcoming adversity and the drive of an artist to be free, as it is about Nureyev, the Cold War or ballet. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
3/5 John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) Cate Marquis It is a lot of plot, complicated connections and underworld characters to carry, which tends weigh down the whole film after awhile. The whole cast is great, but it is a bit like too much of a rich, delicious dessert all at once. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
3.5/5 Photograph (2019) Cate Marquis Batra uses the very human story of two people to comment on the human condition and society itself, no small feat. EDIT

Posted Jul 29, 2019
3.5/5 Red Joan (2018) Cate Marquis Perhaps Nunn tried to do a bit too much with this film, layering this woman's secret past with themes of feminist and anti-war sentiment. When the film focuses on the characters in the past, it builds a driving thriller tension... EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
Maiden (2018) Cate Marquis Surprisingly exciting, with the narrative drive of a fiction film. EDIT
Posted Jul 26, 2019
3.5/5 Tolkien (2019) Cate Marquis Well worth a look for J. R. R. Tolkien fans, if a less engrossing one than one might have hoped. EDIT

Posted May 7, 2019

Posted May 7, 2019
5/5 45 Years (2015) Cate Marquis 45 Years is exquisitely acted with Rampling giving a tour-de-force performance of such subtle power it is breathtaking. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 The Lady in the Van (2015) Cate Marquis The Lady in the Van provides a pleasant ride, especially with the incomparable Maggie Smith at the wheel. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
1/5 Zoolander No. 2 (2016) Cate Marquis ZOOLANDER 2 is a true stinker, the kind of unfunny, nap-inducing comedy likely to be a future Razzie nominee. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 Where to Invade Next (2015) Cate Marquis All this is done with an impish, flag-waving sense of fun, even though Moore is making some hard-hitting points. EDIT
