3/4 90% The Outpost (2020) Director Rod Lurie's first film in almost a decade is also one of his best, and the first movie since our national nightmare began in 2020 that I really regretted not being able to see in a theater.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 64% Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020) There's an infectious charm to most of what works about Eurovision not unlike the international competition itself.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 42% Wasp Network (2019) One can see the craftsmanship and skill with actors that Assayas has honed for the last three decades in the film's best moments, even if it adds up to something of a disappointment.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 70% 7500 (2020) Gordon-Levitt takes 7500 as far as he can, but the film still stalls on the runway, unable to turn its limited perspective into something thrilling or insightful.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 41% You Should Have Left (2020) Kevin Bacon and David Koepp may not work enough, but they should both be working on better projects than this one.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 72% The King of Staten Island (2020) It's lost in a tonal valley, unsure of how to wring comedy from trauma and depression, but also unwilling to really consider either.‐ RogerEbert.com

.5/4 0% The Last Days of American Crime (2020) The only crime here is cinematic.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 69% Becky (2020) The most depressing thing about "Becky" is how little Murnion and Milott do with the star of The King of Queens whose performance is far and away the best thing about this frustrating movie.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 79% Hammer (2019) A tense little thriller, a tight movie about someone who made a very bad decision and is now trying to fight his way out of it.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/5 61% Cinema Verite (2011) I don't feel like I know the Louds any more than I did before the movie. Having said that, one should appreciate Cinema Verite most of all for the performances.‐ HollywoodChicago.com

1.5/5 49% Hemingway & Gellhorn (2012) Tonally inconsistent, poorly directed (and that's hard for me to say given my love for some of Kaufman's work), and structurally flawed, Hemingway & Gellhorn is just a mess.‐ HollywoodChicago.com

3/4 100% Jump Shot: The Kenny Sailors Story (2020) There's something so compassionate and warm about Jacob Hamilton's Jump Shot, a film that is on one level about the history of basketball but is really more about legacy and impact.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 96% The Painter and the Thief (2020) The concept of being seen through someone else's eyes drives the best parts of The Painter and the Thief, a documentary that illuminates a great deal about the human condition even if it does kind of fizzle out in the third act.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 45% Body Cam (2020) A B-movie that turns its violent rage on corrupt Los Angeles cops should be better than Body Cam.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted May 19, 2020
2/4 36% The Wrong Missy (2020) It's almost a shame that the film overall isn't better and that David Spade doesn't give half the effort of his co-star -- Lapkus is just good enough to show how this movie could have worked.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 95% Z (2019) It's one of those films that may be overly reliant on jump scares when you tally them all up, but I'd by lying if I didn't admit that a few of them legitimately made me jump.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 96% A White, White Day (Hvítur, hvítur dagur) (2020) It sometimes feels like Palmason is being a bit self-indulgent with his slow pace, but Ingvar Sigurdsson keeps the film grounded, and ends it with such a devastating, powerful final shot that it alone erases most criticisms.‐ RogerEbert.com
