    ★★★★

    Thematically and technically audacious. Heroic sequence shots. Some aspects feel underconceived and underexplored, but so much is absolutely jaw-dropping that it’s a lot easier to forgive. Lubezki!

    Still think this has one of the best, most underappreciated scores of the past decade plus. Just one of this endlessly rewatchable film’s many glories.

    The Power of the Dog

    ★★★★½

    Such dexterous, controlled filmmaking. Campion draws out endless nuance and tension from a story that on its face could seem quite simple. Bold strokes but flush with layers, complexity. Deftly negotiates point of view. Stunning.

    ★★★★½

    Patient, precise and complex. Thematically rich. Slantwise, idiosyncratic approach to material that might have felt conventional in lesser hands. Lensing, editing rhythms entrance. Throbbingly tactile. So tender, so tough.
