Funnier than almost any other 2022 film and more entertaining than many of the bloated would-be blockbusters dotting the release schedule.

Movie-going is not a civics assignment but "Till" is a sufficiently powerful motion picture that it offers more than a history lesson.

Run Time: 2:39
U.S. Release Date: 2022-10-07
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Todd Field
Cast: Cate Blanchett, Noemie Merlant, Nina Hoss, Sophie Kauer, Julian Glover, Allan Corduner, Mark Strong

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.

Run Time: 1:49
U.S. Release Date: 2022-10-21
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Violence, Gore, Nudity)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Martin McDonagh
Cast: Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon, Barry Keoghan, Gary Lydon

There’s power in the message conveyed by writer/director Martin McDonagh’s screenplay; it’s less a drama and more a rumination about the failings of humanity.

Although not a single line has been retained from Shakespeare's "Macbeth," "Throne of Blood" represents one of the best (if not the best) screen versions of the story.

It plays out as expected without ever being predictable - a bold, uncompromising film that doesn’t self-censor.

First-time director Goran Stolevski takes chances, doesn’t underestimate his audience, and tells a story worth telling.

Run Time: 2:56
U.S. Home Release Date: 2022-05-24
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence)
Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Matt Reeves
Cast: Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell

At a time when many comic book franchises are seeking to go bigger, this down-to-earth approach offers a welcome reprieve.

Run Time: 1:51
U.S. Home Release Date: 2022-01-16
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Fantasy/Comedy
Director: Albert Brooks
Cast: Albert Brooks, Meryl Streep, Rip Torn, Lee Grant, Buck Henry

Brooks offers humor that targets the brain rather than the gut. There are some laugh-out-loud moments but the primary tone is “amusing” rather than “hilarious.”

Sweet and romantic with plenty of offbeat quirks and unexpected beats while never becoming saccharine or artificial.
