The Passion of Joan of Arc (La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc)

"Words fail with a masterpiece as hermetically sealed and seamless as Carl Theodor Dreyer's The Passion of Joan of Arc, so it's fortunate that Criterion's new reissue for the film will leave you speechless. "

Scalpel

"As a slice of sordid Southern gothic nastiness, shot through with a vein of mordant black humor, Scalpel is a cut above. "

2/5 Justice League

"With its sub-par writing, undeveloped characters, and tedious action sequences, Justice League is an incredibly misguided attempt to throw together several iconic DC superheroes that results in a dreary and monotonous mess. "
