Deep Water had me hooked until it didn't, an erotic thriller that begins to run out of steam. Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas are good with the material, while Adrian Lyne's direction on this slow burner mostly compels. I took issue with Zach Helm and Sam Levinson's writing. Still worth the watch.
The Love Story is Never the Whole Story
Deep Water seems to be a mixed bag of many things: a slow-burning erotic thriller, an underdeveloped storyline, a murder mystery, and the sexual friction between its two leads (Affleck and de Armas). Deep Water marks a 20-year return to the director's chair for filmmaker Adrian Lyne (Flashdance, Fatal Attraction, and Unfaithful). Shot in 2019 but delayed multiple times due to COVID, Deep Water finally makes a splash onto Hulu. 2022's Deep Water is based on the 1957 novel by mystery writer Patricia Highsmith (Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley). Our film takes us inside the conflicted marriage of Vic (Affleck) and Melinda (de Armas) Van Allen. They have a daughter named Trixie (Grace Jenkins) but are bound in a loveless marriage. In order to avoid going through a divorce, Melinda is allowed to take a number of lovers, as long as she doesn't leave the family. Yet, Vic becomes obsessed with her affairs, threatening many of them and even darkly joking that he killed one of Melinda's past lovers, who is currently missing. Not to mention, Vic's strange hobby in breeding snails.
We are stuck between Vic and Melinda's passive-aggressive mind game and sexual tension as director Lyne throws in the hook to catch the bait. Yet, where Deep Water comes up short and ultimately drowns is due to its rather shallow writing by screenwriters Zach Helm (Stranger than Fiction) and Sam Levinson (HBO's Euphoria and Malcolm & Marie). The storyline's mystery should have been tightened up to keep the viewers more on edge. Instead, Deep Water begins falling apart around the middle half, turning into a rather silly affair. The mystery and psychological drama are undercooked, leaving us with an incoherent tone. Yet, Lyne's stylization and dramatization are heightened scene after scene. Affleck and de Armas do their best with the material they are given. What is also fascinating ahead of watching Deep Water is knowing that our two leads briefly dated after filming wrapped up. Moving forward, Affleck and de Armas' psychological warfare produced ripple effects throughout the screen. Deep Water is not a bad movie by any means, nor is it a great one either. In the end, Lyne's movie is still worth your time, even if you don't like it. Through blood, sweat, passion, and tears: Deep Water takes a deep dive into the river of seduction and murder.

Turning Red is utterly adorable. Director Domee Shi’s film is bold, vibrant, and a total delight. Richly layered with gorgeous animation and imagination. Telling a story on the messiness of puberty. Pixar’s first Asian-led film showcases the importance of representation. We need more of this. Stream it now on Disney+. Oh, how I wish this was released to theaters.
Growing Up is a Beast.
This coming-of-age tale is full of heart, giving every viewer a big hug. Turning Red is Pixar's first film from the studio to be solely directed by a woman (Domee Shi). It also is the first feature film from the studio to have a lead Asian protagonist. All of this is good and important. In addition, I hope this is the start for more Animated studios to do the same. A milestone for Pixar, while Shi (Academy Award-winning Short, Bao) let her creative freedom run at large. In the end, Turning Red gifts us with an incredibly personal story. Our story takes place in Toronto, Canada, where we follow Meilin "Mei" Lee (voiced by a wonderful Rosalie Chiang). The year is 2002, and Mei is a 13-year-old Chinese-Canadian girl who is energetic, hard-working and bursting with joy. Mei and her best friends are big fans of the hip boy band 4*Town. Think Backstreet Boys or NSYNC.
Mei's best friends are Miriam, Priya, and Abby — all of whom are voiced by actors Ava Morse, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, and Hyein Park. Mei lives with her parents as they spend their days taking care of their Chinese temple. Mei's mother (voiced by the great Sandra Oh) is strict and expects the best out of Mei with school work and helping out around the house. As Ming Lee (Oh) disapproves of her daughter's personal interest, Mei begins learning to think for herself. She realizes that she is not the person her mother wants her to become, sending Mei's anxiety through the roof, causing tension between Ming and Mei. One night, another revelation happens that transforms Mei into a giant red panda, caused when she is in a state of high emotion. Not giving too much away, I will let the movie explain the red panda phenomenon itself. Mei has to learn to control her excitement and emotions — otherwise — she will turn into that giant red panda. In other words, she needs to control her inner panda.
Not to mention that she and her friends also want to really go to that 4*Town's concert. Shi's story is natural, beautifully written, and metaphorically told. Turning Red captures the fears and anxieties of teenage hormones and all of the messiness that comes with it. It feels incredibly authentic and creatively told. Turning Red's animation style pops and glitters scene after scene. There is gorgeous animation that is blended with Anime styles. Along with the silly humor that will keep you laughing, composer Ludwig Göransson's (Black Panther and Tenet) cheerful score will fill your heart with everlasting joy. While Mei is becoming a teenage rebel, she is also finding herself. And while Ming's parenting might come off as strict or overbearing, it also showcases the insecurities that parents face by letting your child grow up.
This does not take away from the parent's immeasurable love for their child. It only deepens it more on the screen. Lastly, Turning Red is a coming-of-age story that the whole family will enjoy, especially children of color, who can see themselves represented on the television. My younger sister Lingli has already watched this movie and texted me that she loved it. It is important for teenagers, like her, to see themselves represented on the screen. There is an importance in telling these stories, and I am hoping for more to come in the near future. As for now, Pixar's 25th feature film is a total blast from the beginning until the end. It is completely original, charming, funny, colorful, and one of the best films to come out in 2022. So, go wild because Turning Red's inner panda roars.
Turning Red is rated PG (Parental Guidance) Language | Thematic Material | Suggestive Content.

A Double Feature Review!
Kimi is another solid outing from director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic, Side Effects, Logan Lucky, and No Sudden Move). Smart, meticulously crated, and thrilling. Actress Zoë Kravitz gives a tour de force performance in this housebound thriller with a timely commentary on isolation. Soderbergh has always had a special craft when dealing with genres such as psychological, crime, and heist thrillers. In Kimi, Soderbergh heightens the psychological game with anxiety and isolation. We follow Angela Childs (a great blue-haired Kravitz), an agoraphobic tech worker, currently working from home. Kimi grapples with the effects of COVID, while Angela is still extremely paranoid to leave her house. Even with her mask and hand sanitizer, Angela cannot force herself to open the door to the outside world.
KIMI is a smart speaker similar to Amazon's Alexa. KIMI controversially makes use of human monitoring to improve its algorithm search. One day, Angela discovers recorded evidence of a violent crime. Angela is met with resistance from within her company when she tries to report it. Seeking justice for the victim, Angela decides to face her fears and leave her apartment. That is as far as I will go with this 89-minute thrill ride that keeps you on edge from one scene to the next. Kimi is sophisticated, pulsating, and well-written throughout. With Soderbergh's strong direction and Kravitz's commanding performance, this is a film you should not turn down. Soderbergh's famous trademark of yellow tint cinematography bleeds its way through the film, sending chills down your spine. In the end, Kimi's nail-biting features come through in crowd-pleasing form.
Kimi is rated R (Restricted) Brief Sexuality/Nudity | Violence | Language.

I Want You Back
I Want You Back is an incredibly sweet and smart rom-com. This wonderful cast excels the film’s story, especially Charlie Day and Jenny Slate’s top-notch chemistry. The balance of romance and comedy is perfectly executed throughout. What a treat this film is. We follow newly dumped thirty-somethings Peter (a hilarious Day) and Emma (a charming Slate) as they team up to sabotage their exes' (Gina Rodriguez and Scott Eastwood) new relationships (Clark Backo and Manny Jacinto) and win them back. I Want You Back sets up a smart premise and executes it pretty well throughout the movie. In addition, director Jason Orley's (2019's Big Time Adolescence) rom-com is layered with brilliant humor and constant laughter. There is a Little Shop of Horrors scene where Emma plays the role of Audrey. Slate kills this role and is a total delight to watch while she sings Suddenly, Seymour. There is so much to enjoy with I Want You Back that it is a hard rom-com to resist. The characters are well-rounded throughout, while the romance and comedy deliver in top form. So, if you have not had a chance to watch this utterly delightful film, I urge you to sit back on the couch, turn on the TV, and enjoy the show.

Kogonada's After Yang is a beautiful and deeply emotional film studying family, identity, and one's purpose. Kogonada's picture is a meditative experience that is both breathtaking and richly rewarding. Actors Colin Farrell, Jodie Turner-Smith, Justin H. Min, Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja, and Haley Lu Richardson fill the screen with awe. I loved it. 5-stars.
What the caterpillar calls "the end" the rest of the world calls a butterfly.
The video-essay-turned-filmmaker, Kogonada, has returned to the director's chair for his second feature film. Back in 2017, Kogonada's feature film debut, Columbus, made it to the big screen. The Indiana-set romance of Columbus struck a chord with many viewers, including me. Kogonada continues his patient storytelling with After Yang, as we follow an interracial couple, Jake (a terrific Farrell) and Kyra (a strong Turner-Smith), their adoptive daughter Mika (a wonderful Tjandrawidjaja), and their robotic son Yang (a powerful Min). After Yang covers many topics and themes throughout the movie. The ones that stuck with me the most were family, adoption, and finding one's identity. Here, we see a mixed heritage family front and center: Jake is white, Kyra is Black, and Mika is Chinese. I, myself, am a part of a mixed heritage family. Three of my siblings (Sergey, Lingli, and Tatiana) are adopted and are from the countries of Russia, China, and Colombia.
Kogonada's picture of what it means to be family is beautiful, powerful, and fully alive. It's also a low-key science fiction film where most of the technology feels largely invisible. In addition, Kogonada explores discovering one's identity and purpose in life. In this case, Yang and what it means to be Asian American. Because Yang is an android, he is struggling with truly feeling authentic within his own identity and skin. Does he count as Chinese? At one point in the film, Yang asks Kyra this exact question. Kogonada does not answer all of these questions. Instead, he lays down the groundwork for viewers to analyze within themselves. Jake and Kyra have purchased Yang from a company called Brothers & Sisters Incorporated. Their reasoning behind this was so that Mika could have a sibling / companion digitally wired to feed her knowledge about her cultural heritage.
Yet, one evening after the family's virtual dance-off, Yang unexpectedly breaks down. As Mika is left disheartened, Jake decides to find a way to repair and fix Yang. Kogonada adapted this movie from author Alexander Weinstein's 2016 short story Saying Goodbye to Yang. After Yang grapples with heavy topics of love, connection, and loss. Yet, Kogonada gently sprinkles in these weighty themes with such clarity and craftsmanship. There is also a poignant subplot that deals with Yang's secret love interest named Ada (a superb Richardson). But that is as far as I will go with that subplot. After Yang reevaluates what it means to be human and what it means to be alive. The tender near-futuristic setting of After Yang will fill your heart with awe. Grounded in visual splendor through breathtaking cinematography (Benjamin Loeb), Kogonada's film is one you don't want to miss.
Furthermore, After Yang's contemporary production design (Alexandra Schaller) is lively and colorful throughout. In addition to Kogonada writing and directing After Yang, he also edited this picture. There's a sympathetic touch over-layered scene after scene, and there was also a montage sequence of Yang's memories that left me in pieces. There is so much to unpack with After Yang that it already has me ready to proceed with multiple viewings and analyzations. After Yang might look like a small film from a distance, but Kogonada's movie packs a powerful message waiting to be opened. There is still a lot of 2022 left — as for now — After Yang is my favorite film I have watched this year. This gift of a movie is waiting for you to watch. So, let this meditative experience open your mind, body, and soul.
After Yang is rated PG (Parental Guidance) Language | Some Thematic Elements.
After Yang had its world premiere last July at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival.
See it in theaters or stream it on Showtime.

Pride & Prejudice meets Les Misérables. Cyrano is a romantic musical that is both stirring and beautiful. Peter Dinklage is marvelous, while Haley Bennett and Kelvin Harrison Jr. are superb. Director Joe Wright’s (2005's Pride & Prejudice and 2007's Atonement) ravishing tale will dazzle with gorgeous costumes and a lively production design. See it in the theaters.
My sole purpose on this earth is to love Roxanne.
Cyrano deserved so much more love this awards season. Sadly, MGM botched the film's award campaign and release date. Cyrano had its world premiere last September at the 2021 Telluride Film Festival. From there, MGM decided to do a limited December 25th release, then pushed back to the 31st. Then, Cyrano was moved again to December 17th for a one-week Los Angeles run so it could be a contender for this year's Oscars. Originally, Cyrano was to have a wide release in January, but that was moved to early February and then pushed back to a final wide release on February 25th. When all was said and done: Cyrano got a single Oscar nomination for Best Achievement in Costume Design (Massimo Cantini Parrini and Jacqueline Durran). Rightfully so, Parrini and Durran deserved that Oscar nomination for costumes.
Yet, the rest of the movie went mostly unnoticed this awards season, and it's a travesty. Especially Dinklage, who gave us one of his best performances to date. His performance is both raw, cunning, and heartbreaking. Dinklage is moving and poetic, capturing one's broken soul. Cyrano deserves to be seen, and I hope you can experience this beautiful film in the theaters. Wright's film is based on the 1897 Edmond Rostand play Cyrano de Bergerac. The screenplay is based on Erica Schmidt's 2018 stage musical of the same name, who also wrote the screenplay for this movie. Cyrano re-images the timeless tale of a heartbreaking love triangle. Wordsmith Cyrano de Bergerac (a marvelous Dinklage) is in love with the beautiful Roxanne (a spectacular Bennett). However, Cyrano is convinced that his outward appearance renders him unworthy of love. He finds a young man named Christian (a strong Harrison Jr.) who also loves Roxanne, as she does him, but the two have never talked in person.
Cyrano, a wonderful poet at heart, convinces Christian that he will be his voice by writing love letters for Roxanne. Cyrano is the voice of love, while Christian becomes the look of charms. Christian and Roxanne meet and bond in affection, but Cyrano is the one that hides from afar, knowing his words have made an impact on Roxanne's heart. Here, we get alluring songs and melodies that will melt your heart away. Songs like Someone to Say, Madly, Your Name, I Need More, Overcome, and Close My Eyes. Poetic, tragic, and burning with passion: Cyrano will soothe your soul with gentle love. A marvelous film that is crafted with gorgeous costumes, a lively production design, and superb acting throughout. This is a romantic musical you don't want to miss. So, do yourself a favor and see Cyrano now. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. I know that I was not. In the end, it was a magical experience.
Cyrano is rated PG-13 (Parents Strongly Cautioned) Suggestive Material | Some Strong Violence | Brief Language | Thematic Material.

The Batman (2022)
Writer-director Matt Reeves’ The Batman (2022) is a force to be reckoned with. Fully alive and pulse-pounding, Reeves’ vision of the Caped Crusader is an astonishing comic book movie. This true detective storyline will rattle your bones. Actors Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, and Colin Farrell are all superb. And that score by composer Michael Giacchino: wow, what a rush! The Batman is one of the darkest and fiercest versions of Gotham's Dark Knight to ever be put up on the big screen. A gripping superhero noir that grabs ahold of you from the first frame, never letting go. Reeves (Cloverfield, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and War for the Planet of the Apes) masterfully crafts a gritty story that will eat your heart out. Drawing inspiration from 1970s cinema and Batman comics such as Year One (1987), The Long Halloween (1996–97), and Ego (2000), Reeves' vision of ambition and grit let loose.
Pattinson transforms into our vigilante in black, capturing Batman's soul with veracity and strength. Since 2019, when I heard that Pattinson was selected, I knew that Warner Bros. had made the right choice. Pattinson's incarnation is raw, moody, and even a little sexy. What also captured my attention was how the film heavily focused on Batman's detective skills. Drawing heavily from David Fincher films like Se7en (1995) or Zodiac (2007). We have seen Batman's detective side all throughout the comics, but that's not always the case for the movies. Kravitz gives the audience an electric portrayal as Selina Kyle, AKA Catwoman. Kravitz and Pattinson's chemistry will melt your heart away. Her fighting spirit as Selina is just as fierce as Michelle Pfeiffer's spirit was back in 1992 (Batman Returns, my favorite Batman film). While Wright and Farrell helped fill the supporting character slots with poise and duty as Lieutenant Gordon and Penguin. Dano is a wonder as the Riddler, letting his freak flag fly high. This version of the Riddler is incredibly scary and never-racking.
Reeves showcases the Riddler as a full-blown sociopath and serial killer. By doing it this way, The Batman's storyline will keep viewers on the edge of their seats and guessing what's around the corner. Our film is set two years after Batman has established himself as Gotham's crime-fighting vigilante. Batman is now uncovering the corruption in Gotham City while pursuing the Riddler, a new serial killer who is targeting the city's elites. Furthermore, Michael Giacchino's (Star Trek, Up, and War for the Planet of the Apes) enormous score was MVP for me after seeing this film on the big screen. Giacchino's soundtrack is a whirlwind of grandeur and emotion; by crafting the pulse-pounding beats and thrills through musical notes. It's definitely an award worthy score. Cinema at its finest, The Batman clocks in at 176 minutes, but I could have stayed for another hour. From the direction to the score to the dark cinematography, The Batman comes for vengeance and takes it. One of the best outings our Caped Crusader and his bruised soul have ever had on the big screen. What a picture.

Director Mimi Cave's Fresh is a wild ride from start to finish. Provocative, gripping, and unsettling. Fresh will not be for everyone. Actor Sebastian Stan is a force unleashed, while actress Daisy Edgar-Jones delivers a cunning performance of her own. Bon appétit. Dating can be hard, and in an age where most of the dating is now done through apps like Tinder, it can also be scary. Cave uses these anxieties of dating to the fullest with satire and bloody horror. Fresh follows Noa (Edgar-Jones), who has become increasingly frustrated with dating apps. After she runs into an attractive man (Stan) named Steve in the grocery store, Noa decides to give him her number. Noa and Steve begin a romantic relationship not long after that encounter. Steve then invites Noa to come with him for a long weekend getaway.
Noa accepts but soon finds out that Steve has a taste for something dark and deadly. This is as far as I will go with the plot. Cave's directorial debut is provoking and nightmarish. It could easily leave some people with a bad taste in their mouth and running for the hills by the end. As for me, I ate this film and its story up fairly well. Through chaotic and pulsating thrills, Fresh will grab ahold of you, sending chills down your spine. Stan is fantastic as a man with dark desires, while Edgar-Jones' performance will fuel your bones with tension and anxiety. Grueling and brutal, Fresh comes with an appetite ready to scare. Fresh is a twisted horror-comedy that will get under one's skin from the beginning until the end. Plus, there's a killer dance-punk song (Heads Will Roll) by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs that blends so well with this movie. So dance the night away and let Fresh be your guess ready to serve: if you dare.

The Worst Person In The World is a pretty flawless picture. Actress Renate Reinsve is perfect as Julie, as we follow her journey through life. Broken up into 12 chapters, Julie runs in a search for happiness and identity. Writer-director Joachim Trier’s film is personal, witty, warm, and heartbreaking. Nominated for 2 Oscars (International Feature and Original Screenplay), The Worst Person In The World is now playing in theaters. A masterclass that snuck up on me in the end. 5-stars.
Yes, I do love you. But I also don't.
With The Worst Person In The World (Verdens verste menneske), the acclaimed Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Trier (Oslo, August 31st and Thelma) has completed his unplanned trilogy, known as the "Oslo Trilogy" (2006's Reprise, 2011's Oslo, August 31st, and now The Worst Person In The World). Trier has low-key linked and crossed over these three distinctive stories with their own personalities, but also similar elements. In 2006's Reprise, Trier examined two young writers and best friends (actors Anders Danielsen Lie and Espen Klouman Høiner) potential for greatness. Continuing with 2011’s Oslo, August 31st, Trier evaluated a decisive day of existence with a 34-year-old man (Lie) who believes his time has passed and wants to cut it short. Now, we have moved to his newest picture, The Worst Person In The World, where we follow Julie (an excellent Renate Reinsve), who is having an existential crisis in life.
Here, Trier studies the ticking time bomb that society imposes on young adults — not only to succeed professionally — but also to settle down romantically and reproduce. Julie is a free-spirited 29-year-old woman trying to figure out her life along the way. In the beginning, Julie is a studying medical student, then switches to psychology, then to photography. Julie meets an acclaimed comic artist named Aksel (a strong Lie), who's fifteen years her senior. Julie and Aksel begin dating and eventually move in together. Aksel is ready to settle down and start a family, but Julie does not want children. Eventually, Julie meets Eivind (a great Herbert Nordrum) while crashing a party one night. Here, Julie's "I do love you. And I don't love you" for Aksel comes to light. Julie's life is entangled with both Aksel and Eivind, and this is as far with the plot as I will go.
Trier's picture is a dark romantic comedy-drama that subverts many rom-com tropes. I found this to be incredibly insightful throughout the movie. I laughed, and I even got a little teary-eyed at the end. The Worst Person In The World is a poignant film that balances several different emotions superbly. Trier's picture is a balancing act in storytelling and a visual palette to cleanse our mouthes. The visual style and editing used throughout is crisp and grandeur. Layered with a killer soundtrack (Ride Like the Wind, The Way You Look Tonight, I Will Take You There, and I Said Goodbye to Me) that plays to the beat of Julie's own drum, superb performances (Reinsve, Lie, Nordrum), and powerful storytelling on the messiness of relationships, The Worst Person In The World has proven why everyone has been talking about it.
Powerful, passionate, wickedly funny, and even a little sexy: Trier's film is a roller coaster of emotions bursting through the screen. There's a scene that involves consuming mushrooms that will have you dying of laughter. Having its world premiere that the 2021 Cannes last July and Reinsve winning Best Actress there at the festival, I can now see why she has been the talk of the town ever sense. Reinsve gives us a layered performance full of heart and soul. As her character grows and struggles in life, you can see Reinsve's natural talent running through Julie's veins. The Worst Person In The World is complex, heartfelt, and realistic. As Julie examines her inner self, it allows the viewers to reflect on their own personal lives and struggles. So, is Julie really "the worst person in the world?" I'll let you come to that conclusion yourself. For now, go experience this sophisticated masterclass of love and loss.
The Worst Person In The World is rated R (Restricted) Sexual Content | Graphic Nudity | Drug Use | Some Language.
