“The movie was coolly received when it opened last year’s Cannes Film Festival, but I found a fascinating formal tension at play here. Looser and pulpier than Farhadi’s previous pictures, Everybody Knows is what happens when one of our stodgier dramatists teams up with two movie stars who always look like they just finished having sex.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 02/14/2019

“This fleet-footed entertainment serves as sort of a stealth autobiography for Soderbergh. Ostensibly a movie about an NBA lockout, it’s really about a natural born hustler banging his head against the money men’s office windows, and how when something you love gets stuck in a stalemate, sometimes it’s necessary to knock all the pieces off the board.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 02/07/2019

“But the festival’s outsized influence over the decades obviously hasn’t always been to everyone’s benefit. Sundance has helped cement the stereotype of an indie film director as a white boy genius with a beard and baseball cap. This legend is often dutifully transcribed by critics like myself, who also tend to be white dudes with beards and baseball caps.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 02/01/2019
