Reviews by Jack Holloway:

Musers Alana and Jack go head to head in a double review of the high stakes, true story of Molly Bloom – a woman lost in the world of underground poker.
Christine, a.k.a. Lady Bird is at once unique and familiar, charming and incorrigible. Director Gerwig’s wit and promise suggests her best work is ahead of her.
Jenny Slate and Abby Quinn are hilarious as sisters. Their chemistry is perfect. They bicker, joke around, hook up with exes and dance.
Sofia Coppola is a true master. Even the most subtle moments in The Beguiled are totally engrossing.
This movie is extremely bizarre, but the kind of bizarre that is a joy to watch. It’s all sexuality, love potions and seduction.
It’s a 1950s mystery that paints a familiar picture of an alarming relationship dynamic but resolves it in a welcome, unfamiliar way.
This is two straight hours of a girl’s roller-coaster-encounter with some sketchy dudes and their alarming evening plans. And it’s totally worth the ride.
What could be a purely political film about a surveillance state is profoundly personal, capturing the longing of a daughter to know the truth of her father.
Bassem Youssef of Egypt blurs the line between comedian and hero, and at precisely the right time.
Robin Wright, both the character and the actress, is asked to be scanned into a hologram - always perfect, always ready.
