(3.5 *) It’s good, but requires a lot of effort!
(3.5 *) Another good take on family. Terrific setup in the first 10 minutes.
(3.5 *) Technically near perfect, but lacking in the dramatic storytelling.
(3.5 *) Alana Haim is a real gem, but the movie is a Hollywood-inside-joke.
(4.5 Stars) Quite likely the Best Picture of the Year. Let me explain why.
(4 Stars) A film that walks a fine line between drama and messaging. And a terrific Mikkelson performance.
(3.5 Stars) Pretty to look at, but not enough anger!
(3.5 Stars). Technically near perfect, but ‘Where’s the beef?’
(4 Stars) A look at a troubled man and a tough time in Hollywood.
(4.5 Stars) A terrific thriller that is also a romantic comedy and a social commentary. Fun in many ways, but with an important message.
(5 Stars) An exceptionally well crafted movie that moves you through multiple emotions all while exploring the complexities of social class.
(4.5 Stars) In addition to what you expect, it shows that old folks still have huge creative talent. Still one of the best pictures of 2019.
(3.5 Stars) A movie Of Hollywood, By Hollywood, and, most importantly, FOR Hollywood!
(4 Stars) A technical masterpiece that overwhelms the story.
(4.5 Stars) Difficult to watch, especially right now. But perhaps necessary.

(3.5 Stars) Liberals will find humor and lots to support disliking Cheney. Conservatives, well, maybe you should avoid this one.
(3 Stars) Although laced with fun and titillating moments throughout, the movie doesn’t deliver a totally coherent message.
(5 Stars) One of my favorite movies of the year, a black man joins the KKK. Although it sounds like a comedy, this is a Spike Lee movie full of important messages.
(5 Stars) Probably the best movie of the year and a great example of excellence in all dimensions. A must-see film.
