    The Sky Above

    ★★★★

    Unfolding like a day in the lives of three very common but unique individuals, this is the kind of hybrid film that blurs so invisibly the frontier between documentary and fiction that I'm only sad it runs for just 68 minutes, for I would gladly watch two or more hours of this any time.

    ★★★★

    Although it may feel a bit longer than necessary and somewhat repetitive, this is a must-see documentary that does more than convince us of the power of (labor) union and organized structure before action, as well as Lula's major role as the eloquent leader of the workers' movement.

    The Handmaiden

    ★★★★½

    Park Chan-Wook explores the power of narrative (the way you tell a story and its ramifications), creating another astounding visual spectacle full of dark humor, sexual desire, betrayal and revenge, with intense performances and a wonderful production design, editing and score.

    ★★★★½

    If there is something more terrifying than alien body snatchers, it is our own dark sides crawling out of our depths to take our places in society, and Peele creates an intelligent allegory replete with symbolism of how today's 'US' is making this red chain of madness all the more possible.
