This has been a fantastic year for movies, and while I’ve had a tough time narrowing down my top 10 list, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is right near the top.
The Glorias, stage and screen auteur Julie Taymor’s take on the life and work of feminist icon Gloria Steinem, exists in a narrow space between being a novel take on biopic conventions and an unwieldy disaster.
Antebellum is a film that seemingly deserves a better hand than the one it’s been dealt and a bit more time to rethink the decisions that doom it to failure.
UglyDolls is an animated adventure based on a toy line that’s waning in popularity, with a nice message about accepting one’s own imperfections that’s aimed squarely at kids who still see their childhood playthings as their best friends.
The historical drama Hidden Figures takes great liberties with its admittedly uplifting subject matter, but it’s still an admirable film that isn’t any better or worse for it.
