    No Time to Die

    ★★½

    A tedious and lackadaisical conclusion to Craig’s era as Bond that tries to fit in as much as it can into its overlong runtime while also suffering from a contrived villain whose weapon is awfully convenient and whose motivations are unclear, a forgettable theme song, and a disappointing ending.

  • Sexy Beast

    Sexy Beast

    ★★★

    The acting, ambition, and staying power are all there, with Glazer establishing himself as a unique avant-garde filmmaker, but the direction is sometimes overkill, the bizarreness doesn’t fit with the material at hand, and the story is a little too short and simple for my taste—considering the tedious buildup.

    ★★★★★

    With a bleak atmosphere, an emotional story, and a remarkably detailed script, Prisoners is at times harrowing, but it reaches the level of perfection with the help of a rigorous direction that employs a simmering tension, a glorious cinematography, a haunting score that can be foreboding or despairing, and amazing performances from its cast.
