In keeping with what I’ve said beforehand, every year seems to have one standout horror film that’s a critical darling if a little iffy with audience; The Babadook, The VVitch, and Hereditary. For 2020 that horror film – aside from the obvious plague that’s screwing us all over – seems to be Saint Maud, and since the majority of these critically acclaimed horrors I’ve absolutely loved, I wanted to see if this would be a winner. And by God it was, this is a chilling, disorienting, and disturbing look at faith and the dangers of unchecked insanity.

When I saw the trailer for Netflix’s new film, The Devil All The Time, I was surprised that I hadn’t heard a lot about it given the cast, but a dark tale of pre-Vietnam Americana bolstered by some big names, I was interested. Having not read the book, I can’t say how it works as an adaptation but on its own merits, this is a pretty damn good flick if a little bit heavy on the grimness.

HBO is back with another show to make people sad. If the coronavirus and the recent issues concerning racial inequality from law enforcement weren’t enough to make you feel sad about what’s going on in the world, then this should do the trick. I Know This Much is True is the latest HBO mini-series that stars Mark Ruffalo as a man named Dominick and his twin brother Thomas as they struggle to make a life together as a family in Three Rivers, Connecticut in 1990. It becomes such a struggle that it takes a toll on Dominick in devastating ways. Not only does he have that but there’s also an ex-wife who comes back into his life forcing him to face some demons, a tumultuous relationship with his new girlfriend and father, and a mission to translate his maternal great-grandfather’s diary entries with some roadblocks set up by the eccentric woman he’s hired to translate it. So like most HBO shows, a barrel of laughs.

For almost 40 years, Spike Lee has made some of the most memorable films to come out of Hollywood. His works are full of black pride, black history, and the overall nature of the black experience. With that being said, it took him 35 years to finally get an Oscar nomination. That one was for the incredible 2018 film, Blackkklansman which featured amazing performances by Adam Driver and John David Washington, son of Denzel, who has every bit of his father’s swagger and gift for performance. In the recent years, directors are flocking towards Netflix, because as we saw with Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, and Alfonso Cauron’s Roma, both my picks for best picture in their respective years, the studio lets the artist do their thing with little to no involvement. It’s now Spike’s turn, so how did he do?
