85% #Unfit: The Psychology of Donald Trump (2020) Despite its powerfully cogent and well-informed arguments, #Unfit... is sadly unlikely to change the minds of the roughly 35-40% of the population who look at the president's behavior and apparently see nothing to be concerned about.‐ Hollywood Reporter

0% Hard Kill (2020) The production notes inform us that the unimaginatively titled Hard Kill was filmed in a mere ten days, making you wonder how they spent eight of them.‐ Hollywood Reporter

88% Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind (2020) Although far from comprehensive, the entertaining cinematic biography should well please the singer's longtime fans, particularly those who have followed him through his career spanning six decades, and possibly make him some new ones.‐ Hollywood Reporter

92% The Outpost (2020) While lacking the technical virtuosity of Sam Mendes' 1917, for example, the movie nevertheless does full justice to its stirring true-life tale of the 2009 Battle of Kamdesh...‐ Hollywood Reporter

0% Shadows & Lies (2010) This dour, molasses-paced neo-noir, about a mysterious figure who becomes embroiled with a nasty criminal and his cohorts, sacrifices coherence and credibility for pretentious stylization.‐ Hollywood Reporter
