WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING (2022)
Crawdads is an uneven movie, however there’s no query concerning the high quality of the performances. Dickinson arrives within the narrative as Chase – a swaggering, tough edges love curiosity. He nails the simplistic and oblivious nature of Chase earlier than revealing his darker impulses. Whilst we develop to despise him, his characterization of the manipulative younger man is eerily acquainted.
TRIANGLE OF SADNESS (2022)
First billing within the Palme D’Or winner isn’t any small matter.
