Its challenging content and well-crafted visuals more than counterbalance any narrative unevenness.

An inspirational story based on a true event with long-shot Oscar aspirations.

Despite being sold and marketed as a thriller, the most interesting aspects of "Shot Caller" are the dramatic ones.

Although this "Homecoming" serves its purpose, it’s just a forgettable waystation on the MCU map, where all roads lead to "Infinity War".

"Snatched" is a little like an Amy Schumer stand-up routine: sometimes edgy, occasionally hilarious, and lessened by the bits that fall flat.

The film’s structure is suspect and its ability to develop a bond between the viewer and the characters is strained.

In "Silence", moments of brilliance punctuate an otherwise sluggish, self-indulgent narrative.

An ephemeral pleasure but a pleasure nonetheless.
