86% American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace (TV, 2018) "Versace attempts a fascinating anthropology of '90s-era homosexuality and attendant homophobia... The results -- some of which are quite moving -- are fascinating but mixed. " ‐ The Week
Posted Jan 18, 2018
40% Condorito: La PelĂ­cula (2018) "The movie painlessly smooths so much that's rough in the original that it bears hardly any relation to its origin. For all that Condorito smashed Walt Disney's tendency to prettify, Condorito: La Pelicula does just that. " ‐ The Week
Posted Jan 18, 2018
50% Alone Together: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's a slyly ambitious show - and an especially odd fit for Freeform. " ‐ The Week
Posted Jan 11, 2018
83% The Chi: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "If The Wire surveilled its characters, The Chi sticks you in the story with them. This show is a jewel. Watch it. " ‐ The Week
Posted Jan 5, 2018
76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) "You won't feel much, you probably won't forget you're sitting in a theater watching a group of people play a game, but it's fun, and funny. " ‐ The Week
Posted Dec 20, 2017
90% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) "This delightful if overlong film has so many arcs and subplots that you'll find yourself parsing them later... not because they don't work, but because the film packs so many scenes that reward closer-than-normal observation. " ‐ The Week
Posted Dec 15, 2017
91% The Disaster Artist (2017) "If you strip the fiddly premise out, this is an immensely silly movie about an immensely silly person. Watch it. You'll be glad you did. " ‐ The Week
Posted Dec 7, 2017
96% The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "In The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Sherman-Palladino inverts the cult of personality narratives that secretly animate so many shows featuring comics into something stronger and much, much stranger. " ‐ The Week
Posted Nov 30, 2017
96% Search Party: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "Alia Shawkat handles drama beautifully and with real Hitchcockian style (she's an absolute vision in the finale), but many of her worst, most heart-wrenching moments are also - and how they pulled this off is the show's greatest mystery - hilarious. " ‐ The Week
Posted Nov 21, 2017
40% Justice League (2017) "That this setup feels both rushed and tedious is a shame, because these figures have potential to be genuinely interesting. " ‐ The Week
Posted Nov 17, 2017
100% Back: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "If Peep Show sometimes skewered Blair-era fantasies about what a cosmopolitan United Kingdom could be, Back takes a dull and slightly depressive scalpel to Britain in the age of Brexit. " ‐ The Week
Posted Nov 16, 2017
57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) "Instead of meticulously matching clues to revelations, it turns Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie's famous detective, into an unappealingly emotional Holmes. " ‐ The Week
Posted Nov 9, 2017
100% Lady Dynamite: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "In its second season, the show remains brightly colored and brittle and funny and kind of exhausting. " ‐ The Week
Posted Nov 9, 2017
74% SMILF: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Ignore its name. SMILF, Frankie Shaw's show, which premiered last night, is a crusty, tender masterpiece. " ‐ The Week
Posted Nov 9, 2017
94% Outlander: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "Outlander is unique in how it uses sex to think about character development. " ‐ The Week
Posted Oct 26, 2017
28% Suburbicon (2017) "Suburbicon might be the most contemporary period piece I've ever seen. " ‐ The Week
Posted Oct 26, 2017
100% Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "So the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend premiere does what every episode of this show does: treat the stereotype with unexpected understanding and empty it. " ‐ The Week
Posted Oct 20, 2017
100% Jane the Virgin: Season 4 (TV, 2017) "The show that has always been about Jane, and centered her problems, now features two different narrators fighting for structural and narrative supremacy. It's amazing. " ‐ The Week
Posted Oct 20, 2017
83% Marshall (2017) "It's a fascinating and somewhat obscure and laudatory slice of Marshall's professional life, and that's all, and that's fine. But there's room for another Marshall picture. " ‐ The Week
Posted Oct 19, 2017

Posted Oct 12, 2017
77% Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 9 (TV, 2017) "Don't get me wrong: Larry David remains a total pleasure to watch. The music is mischievous, the cast a delight. But it's a sign of these peculiar times that Curb - that sometime father of cringe comedy - has become something closer to comfort food. " ‐ The Week
Posted Oct 5, 2017
92% The Deuce: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Formally as well as cinematically, The Deuce is unporn. It doesn't care about the plot. The money shot is beside the point. And that, really, is what makes The Deuce special. " ‐ The Week
Posted Oct 5, 2017
89% Transparent: Season 4 (TV, 2017) "There's no question that this voyage of self-discovery is worthwhile, and urgent, and necessary, but Transparent is open about the fact that the flip side of self-discovery isn't necessarily political wokeness: It's self-worship. " ‐ The Week
Posted Sep 28, 2017
96% Better Things: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "There's only so much pity one can muster for a successful woman who owns two houses, has the means to hire housekeepers, and nevertheless sees herself as a beleaguered, unappreciated underdog. " ‐ The Week
Posted Sep 14, 2017

Posted Sep 1, 2017
89% Game of Thrones: Season 7 Episode 7 "I said last week that Game of Thrones has gotten terrible. I more or less stand by that, but there's no denying that "The Dragon and the Wolf" was a thousand times better than the two preceding episodes. " ‐ The Week

86% House of Cards: Season 2 (TV, 2014) "I really enjoyed the season, but there's a hollowness to the show that comes of its borrowing a form but refusing some of that form's basic terms, thinking that makes it fancier. " ‐ Los Angeles Review of Books
Posted Aug 28, 2017
93% Community: Season 5 (TV, 2013-2014) "It hasn't gone anywhere yet, but I hope it does. It's interesting, and it's a big, big deal that Abed let go. " ‐ Los Angeles Review of Books

100% The Americans: Season 5 Episode 1 "Joe Weisberg's show. . .has always investigated the overlap between the personal and the political, and the ways the story you keep telling about yourself starts to become a second truth. " ‐ The Week
Posted Aug 28, 2017
93% A Series of Unfortunate Events: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The payoff is that a Netflix show - not being television - can really think about how messing with form and delivery affects its storytelling.
