2021 Movies Reviewed in Five Words or Less

The Best

Power of the Dog — intense and engaging with surprises

Belfast — great story, humanity transcends politics

Summer of Soul — joyous performances, best music doc

Jockey — a tough life, brilliantly filmed

Pretty good

A Hero — not really, just misperception

The Worst Person in the World — not really, just being independent

Drive My Car — long, slow and deeply thoughtful

Passing — true to novel, well acted

Julia — one of a kind, appetizing

Not So Bad

House of Gucci — imperfect but holds your interest

Spencer — a one-note song

Velvet Underground — more music please

The Lost Daughter — uncomfortable flashbacks and bad mothering

A Time to Die — standard all-action Bond unreality

The Many Saints of Newark — not on par with Sopranos

Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain — barely remember it

Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn — weird, explicit, timely and interesting

Not So Good

The French Dispatch — starts fast, fades faster

Sucks

Being the Ricardos — a disappointingly unconvincing Lucy
