YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE

D9C378FB-CB36-427D-9556-48D4E8605022

“A nerve-shredding, artsploitation action picture, with Ramsay mixing and matching elements of Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver and John Boorman’s Point Blank to create something audaciously all her own. You Were Never Really Here is an icky, rotgut noir filtered through a prism of abstract art. It’s like a Charles Bronson movie directed by Alain Resnais.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 04/12/2018

”Subserviently seeks to flatter its target audience with a spectacular array of semi-clever references to cool stuff from their childhoods. Meanwhile an otherwise unremarkable, antisocial, adolescent white boy’s skill at video games and deep knowledge of trivial ephemera will somehow save the world. This is fanboy fellatio and I found it all almost unbearably depressing.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 03/29/2018

ISLE OF DOGS

”When Wes Anderson’s meticulous constructions work, the deeply felt emotions stirred up by their stories reverberate against his dollhouse designs in fascinating ways. When they don’t click, you can feel like you’re stuck spending two hours in somebody’s Etsy store. Isle of Dogs is one of the ones that works, for the most part.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 03/28/2018

“Soderbergh shoots the scare sequences like an old master playing with a new toy, nestling up uncomfortably close to his star with the unfiltered image quality peering into her every pore. He’s got his tiny camera looming above her shoulder or directly under Foy’s face, so it often feels like the movie itself is stalking her.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 03/23/2018
