One of the best films of the year, director and co-writer Shaka King’s Judas and the Black Messiah is a fascinating, exciting, and multi-layered character study and true story that speaks volumes to the black experience in the late 1960s and early 70s.
Don’t hope for too much of an explanation as to what might be happening in I’m Thinking of Ending Things. This isn’t that type of movie. Nor is it a work of avant garde cinema that allows viewers to draw their own conclusions.
Although it’s built upon an outrageous and patently implausible plot that won’t appeal to viewers looking for anything remotely resembling realism, the dark comedy Game Night will appeal to anyone willing to unplug for 100 minutes in service of some strong belly laughs delivered by an expertly cast group of actors.
