“We’re now halfway through director David Lynch’s maddening, magnificent magnum opus, a work of such sweeping breadth and bonkers daring that mere hyperbole feels meager and insufficient. This is the most thrilling, confounding program to be seen on television since… well, since the original Twin Peaks first premiered on ABC back in 1990.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 07/12/2016
“The Beguiled turns out to be a classic Coppola bubble, with the wealthy young ladies of the Farnsworth School throwing themselves into fancy French lessons, formal dinners and arcane matters of antebellum decorum while a war that’s already destroyed their entire way of life rages right outside the door of this obsolete feminine fortress.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 07/10/2017

“It has always seemed to me that if Spike Lee had any idea how to solve the systemic problems and inherent conflicts of race and class then he wouldn’t have had to make a movie about them. What makes the film a masterpiece its depiction of a day during which everyone thinks they’re doing the right thing and everything still goes to hell anyway.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 07/03/2017
