Article 15

Tusshar Sasi @ Filmy Sasi

  • Excerpt: In a plot that is centred on a twin murder in Indian heartlands, ‘Article 15’ is about the local society’s intrinsically trickled-in caste dynamics, ways of power politics as well as the central protagonist’s (Ayushmann Khurrana) coming-of-age.

Long Day’s Journey Into Night

Roderick Heath @ Film Freedonia

  • Excerpt: We are of course watching Bi’s movie and he knows it, using the privilege to rewrite his own reality.

Maiden

James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture

Maiden

MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com

  • Excerpt: The riveting tale of misogyny-busting sailor Tracy Edwards is as beautifully modulated as fiction, full of twists and turns and delicious ironies, and even sports a perfect ending. Yet it’s all true.

Ophelia

Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat

  • Excerpt: With good performances and clever additions to Shakespeare’s play, there’s enough here to provide real entertainment.

Ophelia

Nell Minow @ rogerebert.com

  • Excerpt: There are parallels, and mirrored dualities throughout, and it is not only Ophelia whose character is made more vivid and complex.

The Other Story

Nell Minow @ rogerebert.com

  • Excerpt: Nesher skillfully balances a lot of characters and storylines, each illustrating a different kind of Israeli and a different connection to Jewish life, culture, and practice, but he never lets any of them become symbolic rather than real.

Parasite

Bavner Donaldo @ Cinejour [Indonesian]

Parasite

Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]

  • Excerpt: Bong Joon-ho’s biting social satire is darkly funny and wildly entertaining.

San Andreas Mega Quake

Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]

Transit

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: Those aspects from Seghers novel that make it universal, still read and discussed, may not be lost, yet feel diminished in the film.
