The Favourite

Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment

  • Excerpt: The Favourite has no shortage of irreverence and layers of subversion to best realize this story of rivalries and power plays between three complex women.

A Private War

MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com

  • Excerpt: A moving and important portrait of legendary Times of London foreign correspondent Marie Colvin. We need more movies like this, about fearless, badass women this outrageously good at their vitally necessary work.

Limited (United States)

Green Book

MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com

  • Excerpt: The tune may be familiar, but it is performed with virtuoso style, its central characters drawn with wit, charm, and complexity and brought to life via the absolutely gorgeous performances of its stars.

Jonathan

Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage

  • Excerpt: The filmmakers lead us to dark places in the process, flipping stigmas on their head to hide the psychological consequences of what’s happening beneath emotional ones.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web
The Grinch
Overlord

Limited (United States)

The Front Runner

MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com

  • Excerpt: Snappy Sorkin-esque banter, 80s nostalgia, and Hugh Jackman in a bad wig yet still hot as hell. But also an enraging, ironic look at how a reality-TV resume ended up becoming a legit qualification for the American presidency.

The Front Runner

Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment

  • Excerpt: Set to be released on the day of 2018’s midterm elections, there’s a case to be made for the apparent relevance of The Front Runner, it’s just a shame director Jason Reitman holds back from providing a more in-depth examination of his subject.

Bodied

Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews

  • Excerpt: Bodied is a sharp and hilarious satire that tackles the complexities of woke culture by exploring the world of battle rap.

Bodied

Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See

  • Excerpt: I don’t love it quite as much as many; it meanders around for too long in the middle and doesn’t have as much to say as some claim—in trying to take on everything, it essentially says nothing. Still, it’s a wild fucking ride, even if it doesn’t really go anywhere, and it works best when Kahn just lets it rip and run free.

Hunter Killer

Limited (United States)

Suspiria

Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment

  • Excerpt: For all the bizarre art-house horror qualities that will no doubt earn this film the high-water achievement of an “F” Cinemascore, Guadagnino doesn’t shy away from the grindhouse sensibilities of auteurs from the 70s.

What They Had

Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment

  • Excerpt: What They Had is the sort of family drama you can appreciate for keeping things fairly straightforward. It offers a relatable story that does enough to round out the characters so you can enjoy the time, regardless of the balance between light humor and overwhelming drama.

Chasing the Blues

Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage

  • Excerpt: If you can’t buy into [Rosenmeyer and Conner’s] pratfalls and sarcastic anger, the whole can easily fall apart. Luckily they’re quick to endear themselves to us so we can look past any hiccups and let their sitcom antics sustain a brisk sub-80-minute runtime.

The Hate U Give

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: In a year that has featured “Black Panther,” “Black Klansman,” “Sorry to Bother You” and “Blindspotting,” who would have predicted that an adaptation of a YA novel would be the year’s most trenchant exploration of racial injustice in today’s America.

The Hate U Give

Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment

  • Excerpt: While some of these adaptations tend to have some important thematic issues buried within, here’s a film that builds no allusions around what it wants to accomplish.

Heavy Trip

Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews

  • Excerpt: Heavy Trip is a joyous and affectionate love letter to the outcast that is almost impossible to resist.

Heavy Trip

Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See

  • Excerpt: Because your movie watching doesn’t contain nearly enough “symphonic post-apocalyptic reindeer-grinding Christ-abusing extreme war pagan Fennoscandian metal,” Finnish import Heavy Trip is here to rectify that glaring oversight.

Loving Pablo

Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage

  • Excerpt: Loving Pablo had the opportunity of making Virginia Vallejo its star. The filmmakers [instead use] their most intriguing component to sell a unique perspective, but waste her as a springboard towards the same old story.
