Audiard as usual goes for the unobvious. TAXI DRIVER climax will divide. His ability to apply crime genre to variety of stories impresses.
The death of modern current affairs reporting needed more skilled filmmaking. Sentimentality derails a compelling story.
Johnnie To directs an almost MARGIN CALL-esque musical, but subsumes commentary beneath poisoned love. TRON-like design.
Gets a pass for sheer beauty, but constantly grabs at profundity and misses. Sorrentino's grasp of composition astounds.
GREEN ROOM ★★★½☆
Three satisfying movies in a row from director Saulnier. Comedy to revenge to siege flick, demonstrates cinema confidence.
