Review: Leave No Trace

For her first fictional feature since 2010’s Winter’s Bone (and only her fourth feature in the past fifteen years), director Debra Granik mounts an even further internalized depiction of pain, emotional suffering, and unwavering love with the austere, but heart-wrenching father-daughter drama Leave No Trace.

Review: ‘Hostiles’

Writer and director Scott Cooper’s Hostiles isn’t one of the worst films ever made, but it’s one of the worst kinds of films: a self-important, plodding, and basic diatribe about the negative impact of Colonialism that’s too wrapped up in its own sense of personal accomplishment and air of ennui that it doesn’t realize how it’s conforming to negative stereotypes instead of subverting them.
