B+ 94% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) The results overall feel like riding a rickety wooden rollercoaster, where one wrong bump could send the whole thing crashing down, but put your arms up anyway and enjoy the ride‐ The Filtered Lens

C- 80% Overlord (2018) Overlord, in all its self-seriousness, has no real subtext it tries to tackle, or sense of importance that would elevate this sort of plot into A-movie status. So then why not embrace what it is?‐ The Filtered Lens

B- 88% Bodied (2018) It's not entirely successful, especially in how unclear it is with what conversation it's trying to start, if any at all, but it is undeniably entertaining as all hell throughout.‐ The Filtered Lens

B 81% The Other Side of the Wind (2018) As an experimental commentary on experimental cinema, The Other Side of the Wind is practically built on being self-indulgent. It's sort of thrilling to witness, though not very enjoyable.‐ The Filtered Lens

B- 84% Boy Erased (2018) In cinema today, so many gay films feel like they're made for straight audiences. Boy Erased is no different, but at least here that feels somewhat intentional.‐ The Filtered Lens

B+ 90% Cold War (Zimna wojna) (2018) It's sort of Richard Linklater's Before trilogy meets Casablanca, but condensed into an all-too-short 85-minute runtime.‐ The Filtered Lens

B- 79% Halloween (2018) In a few years, it'll be remembered fondly, but most will still go back to the original. ‐ The Filtered Lens

B 77% At Eternity's Gate (2018) Defoe gives an appropriately huge performance as the film's subject, serving as a reminder that, while he may not give the most nuanced performances, the actor boasts an incredible screen presence as capable of tugging the heartstrings as instilling fear.‐ The Filtered Lens

9.5/10 94% If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) Barry Jenkins' If Beale Street Could Talk is beaming with style and detail, but at its core, it's a mindful meditation on human beings seeking the greatest gift we can give each other -- love.‐ IGN Movies
