Funnier than almost any other 2022 film and more entertaining than many of the bloated would-be blockbusters dotting the release schedule.
It probably will not go down as “Great Spielberg” or even “Very Good Spielberg” but represents a warm, enjoyable plunge into the 1950s and 1960s.
Adding a dash of gore and an undercooked romance cannot save this meandering road trip movie from slipping into monotony and boredom.

A dark satire that skewers privilege and eviscerates the famous and wealthy, this film from director Mark Mylod takes no prisoners.
Despite its strong sense of atmosphere and an intense performance by lead actress Florence Pugh, "The Wonder" is strangely uninvolving.
An overlong blockbuster in search of an editor and a series of impressive action sequences without a compelling narrative to connect them.
Movie-going is not a civics assignment but "Till" is a sufficiently powerful motion picture that it offers more than a history lesson.
Some of the individual moments are impactful or effective at evoking nostalgia. But, as they say, the whole is less than the sum of the parts.
Cate Blanchett’s inhabitation of Lydia is complete and the movie’s presentation of her life is exacting in every detail; the result is nothing short of mesmerizing.
