★★★★★ Godzilla Minus One successfully blends horror-infused kaiju spectacle with an emotionally compelling storyline about grief, wartime trauma, and hope. The film's world-class visuals, engaging characters, and socially relevant themes differentiate it from other entries in the franchise. It is a superlative monster movie.

★★★★☆ Bradley Cooper is back in the director's chair for another musically-oriented film, a biopic of the composer Leonard Bernstein entitled Maestro. And yet, this isn’t really a conventional biopic at all. Rather, it’s the portrait of a marriage between Bernstein (Cooper) and Felicia (a luminous Carey Mulligan who takes the headline credit). His career is more in the background, yet occasionally comes to the fore with exhilarating force. The post Film Review: Maestro appeared first on CineVue ..read more
