    Veneno

    ★★★★½

    There are so many beautiful, transcendent things this miniseries does but the best of them may be giving the gift of love to Cristina La Veneno, the love she so badly wanted and deserved when she was alive.
    Veneno defies comparison but if we must, it deftly smokes Tr*nsparent and Pose and makes their broken ground seem quaint.
    Even when it belabours its already heightened melodrama, or slows in episode six, this is still essential viewing.

    Dolan has often been criticized for being style over substance but despite having only recently come into his own as a director after a series of good but…

    Rosy

    ★★★½

    "Did you ever love me?"

    Part-way through writer-director Jess Bond's (aka Jess Manafort) Romantic Comedy Thriller, Doug (Nat Wolff) begins to remove the boards from the windows in the room where he is keeping Rosy (Stacy Martin), an actress he has kidnapped.
    She watches her captor with a look on her face as though this is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for her and she couldn't be more touched.
    It's a look that is less relief or hope…
