Best Picture Oscar Nominees 2022
(3.5 *) Another good take on family. Terrific setup in the first 10 minutes.
(4.5 *) A simple tale, simply told. But delivers a big emotional payoff.
Don’t Look Up
(4 Stars) No, Not Best Picture But a Satirical film with a not-so-funny message.
Drive My Car
(3.5 *) It’s good, but requires a lot of effort!
(5 Stars) A stunning sensory experience and quite likely the next Star Wars.
(3 *) A fun movie until you understand that it isn’t completely truthful.
(3.5 *) Alana Haim is a real gem, but the movie is a Hollywood-inside-joke.
(4 Stars) A film noire psychological thriller that keeps your interests, darkly.
The Power of the Dog
(4.5 Stars) Quite likely the Best Picture of the Year. Let me explain why.
West Side Story
(3.5 *) Technically near perfect, but lacking in the dramatic storytelling.
