Every so often, a film shows the depth of communism’s personal costs in a poignant and beautiful way. So it is with ‘Cold War,’ a masterpiece from Polish director Pawel Pawlikowski, nominated for three Academy Awards.
‘Wine Country’ is outright cringe-inducing from start to finish, save for a merciful flash of comedy every 20 minutes or so. Not even a bottle of cab can dull the pain.
Why bother with people from another time if we have to always reduce them to boring, conventional people of our own times?
Ultimately, this is a film not just about massive battles between good and evil, about flashy tech and iron suits, it is a look into the human soul, and what we are willing to do to overcome.
It’s not perfect, but ‘Avengers: Endgame’ comes close enough that even the most superhero-saturated, seen-it-all fan will love it.
The film implies the dead should have been left alone for their souls to enter the afterlife, but filmmakers chose not to beat viewers over the head here.
America has two Captain Marvels. One debuted last month but the original is hitting screens now, and ‘Shazam’ is a better movie.

For a horror film, ‘Us’ is not particularly scary or involving, and for a movie full of metaphors, it offers nothing to hold your attention or remember.
This movie depicts the third most common medical procedure performed on women—a procedure that is largely veiled from sight.
Netflix’s ‘Triple Frontier’ is a movie about the one thing that’s been banished from our entertainment—friendship between men.
Marvel broke the mold of character origin films with ‘Black Panther,’ then they tried to put that mold back together for ‘Captain Marvel.’
‘Apollo 11’ is mythical and patriotic, but does not eschew the hard science that was required to get Americans on the moon.
‘Captain Marvel’ provides filler until the larger-scale ‘Avengers: Endgame’ arrives next month but seems lacking in commitment, ambition, and innovation.
