Director: David Bruckner
Cast: Rebecca Hall, Sarah Goldberg, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Evan Jonigkeit, Stacy Martin

A quietly intense alternative to generic horror movies that provides its share of scares without the need to splatter the screen with blood and viscera.

Never takes itself too seriously, delivers all the goods one expects from this sort of action-thriller, and doesn’t overstay its welcome.

Moody, introspective, and meditative, "Nomadland" makes up for its meandering pace with its insights about human nature and its incisive portrait of indomitability.

It's possible to recognize that film’s stylistic mastery while acknowledging that some aspects are artifacts of a bygone era.

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about "Novitiate" is the even-handedness with which it treats religion in general and 1960s Catholicism in particular.
