Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/10 74% The Long Dumb Road (2018) A case of realism gone wrong, leading to a complete absence of any incentive whatsoever to care about either of the main characters, let alone get invested in the toxicity of their lives and friendship, thus destroying any real enjoyment.‐ The Young Folks

9/10 88% A Private War (2018) Nearly any other film would be guilty of lionizing it subject. Certainly that's a danger given the nature of both the woman A Private War portrays and the issues it discusses.‐ The Young Folks

62% Suspiria (2018) Guadagnino is so intent on fulfilling his vision he doesn't seem to have room for any perspective besides his own, leaving the women in his narrative underserved in spite of his incredibly skilled efforts.‐ Chicago Reader

79% Halloween (2018) There are gaping plot holes and characters make idiotic decisions, but watching three generations of women take on Myers-with some great callbacks to the original-is irresistibly satisfying. ‐ Chicago Reader

93% Transit (2019) ...the characters' very realistic reactions to the increasingly encroaching violence means their stories hit home.‐ Chicago Reader

82% In the Aisles (In den Gängen) (2018) Stuber refuses to allow any action his protagonist Christian (Franz Rogowski) takes to truly go anywhere. ‐ Chicago Reader

2/10 84% The Wife (2018) The movie doesn't try to make a case for such women to be taken seriously, it's trying to indicate that Joan is better than that, thus indulging in the very sexism it claims to oppose. ‐ The Young Folks

9/10 100% Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms (2018) The film embraces its female-centric premise while mostly eschewing traditional romance for its heroine, preferring to focus on passion of another kind, with the movie's rich visuals bringing all of its ideals to breathtaking life.‐ The Young Folks

9/10 100% Leave No Trace (2018) Leave No Trace is mostly a thoughtful, empathetic exploration of what really makes a home, and how hard-fought the battle can be to find it.‐ The Young Folks

2/4 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Incredibles 2 regresses to a time when any power women managed to acquire was carefully controlled so as not constitute a threat to the male order. Such nostalgia is self-defeating.‐ Chicago Reader

9/10 71% Damsel (2018) It's a relief to see a movie which injects its dark subject matter with a dry sense of humor rather than reveling in the darkness and violence amidst its beautiful landscapes. ‐ The Young Folks

9/10 93% First Reformed (2018) Ethan Hawke hauntingly embodies Reverend Toller, a middle-aged pastor at a church whose glory days are long past.‐ The Young Folks

3/10 42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) There's only so much even the greatest can do when they're saddled with such lazy, uninspired writing.‐ The Young Folks

7/10 84% Game Night (2018) If only every comedy was as capable of hitting as many marks as Game Night, sequel wouldn't be such a dirty word.‐ The Young Folks

5/10 87% Mary and The Witch's Flower (2018) Mary and the Witch's Flower isn't trying to be anything big and sprawling, and it shouldn't have to be. What's missing isn't a bigger picture, it's one that's more consistent.‐ The Young Folks

5/10 28% Proud Mary (2018) The movie Proud Mary might not be anything special in itself, but its heroine sure as hell is.‐ The Young Folks

8/10 88% The Post (2018) This also marks the first time that Spielberg, Hanks, and Streep have collaborated on a film, and it's worth the price of admission to watch these giants work off each other and give some of the best performances of their careers.‐ The Young Folks

5/10 50% The Glass Castle (2017) Such complex, real-life events demand more than the simple uplifiting story The Glass Castle turns out to be, and Walls deserves more than being reduced to nothing more than the sum of her daddy issues.‐ The Young Folks

5/10 17% Baywatch (2017) The only thing to say about the Baywatch movie is that it could have been worse. ‐ The Young Folks

9/10 100% The Work (2017) ... The Work is an emotionally challenging film that forces us to take a look at masculinity, the prison system, and how we expect men to cope with trauma and difficulty ... ‐ The Young Folks

0.5/10 53% Person to Person (2017) Writer-director Dustin Guy Defa obviously thinks his movie is about his characters trying to forge new connections with various degrees of success, but Person to Person is really about how difficult it is for well-meaning men to get women to love them. ‐ The Young Folks

7/10 70% To the Bone (2017) Countless movies and pieces have been written about the harsh beauty standards women are expected to conform to, so To the Bone wisely ignores them and invests in making the most out of its cast...‐ The Young Folks

10/10 97% Mudbound (2017) Much like director Dee Rees did in Pariah, she creates a film of tremendous empathy, one which never loses sight of its female cast members and the gender expectations they are expected to submit to. ‐ The Young Folks

1/10 64% Axolotl Overkill (2017) What Axolotl Overkill fails to understand is that the apathy powering its numbly beating heart is actually no longer relevant.‐ The Young Folks

9.5/10 88% I don't feel at home in this world anymore. (2017) Writer-director Macon Blair is practically a virtuoso in how all this unfolds, which is in a surprisingly humorous fashion ... ‐ The Young Folks

9/10 98% City of Ghosts (2017) City of Ghosts was always going to be an achingly relevant plea for help and compassion in today's world, but recent events have made it more urgent than ever.‐ The Young Folks

9/10 95% The Love Witch (2016) Before you surrender to it, just remember that you were warned.‐ The Young Folks

10/10 76% In a Valley of Violence (2016) When the dust clears, the movie suggests that everyone gets the ending they deserve, for better and...no, pretty much the worst. Only the worst really. But the road there is compulsively watchable.‐ The Young Folks
