The top movies of 2021.
Sardar Udham is a riveting and stunning story of one of India’s lesser documented revolutionaries. Vicky Kaushal turns in his finest yet.
A glacially progressing look at intimate relationships, Aarkkariyam is a beautiful look at how well we know our loved ones. Or not.
‘Haseen Dillruba’ is an uneven, ultimately unsatisfying look at fraught relationships. It falls in love with its own twist much too soon, much too deep.
The second season ups the ante in a taut outing where everyone’s struggling to figure out their own space. Plus, it raises some questions about the art of making political thrillers and make up.
Director Dileesh Pothan uses sly machinations to create a tight, moody drama that’s a daydreamer’s nightmare.
‘The Serpent’ is a slick-fest, riding on some terrific performances, an uneasy score, and a time-jumping story-telling technique. Like its subject, it throws you off and then seduces you.
Orson Welles’ vision for this classic-noir comes alive in a stunning blu-ray transfer. It’s a tragedy he wasn’t around to see his vision redeemed.
Creators Dennis Kelly and Felis Barrett create a stunning, psychedelic canvas that covers grief, manipulation, and love, bloodied by the shredding machines for all ages: power and control.
Writer-director Jeethu Joseph deconstructs his totem movie’s premise to create a gripping drama that thrills when you least expect it.
