“Shogun” is riveting. It’s gorgeous. It’s the TV equivalent of a page-turner.
"God Save Texas may only be a three-part anthology docuseries, but in those three parts, it manages to be wide-ranging, timely and vitally important."
"[The New Look] successfully captures the utter horrors of war alongside the beauty of creation. The severity of one only emphasizes the gravity of the other. Together, they make something breathtaking, heartbreaking, and entirely worth watching."
In an interview with the director of They Called Him Mostly Harmless: “You can have a meaningful connection with somebody on one hand, and have done something really wrong. You can be both a good person and a bad person. And the internet at this moment is struggling to contain that.”
On One Day: "...a sweet (and often deeply sad) way to look at life, particularly the turbulent period of burgeoning adulthood, as people change and grow, and also regress."
"Reservations aside, [Masters of the Air] worked like gangbusters on me for a different reason: It’s focused on capturing what it looks like — what it means, really — to work toward a common goal. To feel a deep sense of responsibility for one another."
"Mr. and Mrs. Smith, to its credit, is not like many other spy shows. It’s a thrilling escape from mundanity, yes, but it also tugs on your heartstrings as much as it focuses on its leads beating up the bad guys — if not more so."
On Killers of the Flower Moon: "This is a master artist putting a stamp on not only his own career, but also the entirety of American cinema and, why not, American history, too."
"Fallen Leaves is the best big-screen romance of the year even though its prospective lovers exchange only a handful of words and, for most of the film, don’t know each other’s names."
