    A Brighter Summer Day

    ★★★★★

    May A Brighter Summer Day rest among the titans of cinema—towering in its depth, modest in its scale, and with rarely a false note during its four-hour run.

    ★★★½

    Purely brilliant for its former half, and a little lackluster for the latter, The Lobster definitely overstays it's quirky welcome; though, that's not to say it isn't one of the best comedies (if you can even call it that) of the year.

    But, even with its length, Lanthimos is making…

    American Honey

    ★★★★½

    Andrea Arnold is a singularity in a cesspool of congruency―her camera, her talent, her subjects, all freely moving against the grain―in a world stamped with only one possible signature: hers. This is necessary independent cinema; a burst of creativity and rebellion so badly needed in an otherwise (mostly) standardized arena.

    American Honey breathes with a richness in character, so nuanced and so untapped, you just can't wait to see what comes next.
