New Views

What have I watched recently?

This page lists my views – of new AND old films and shows – over the last month, along with star ratings, in addition to links to reviews, if I wrote a review. To visit all my reviews of feature films, go here.

For all my ratings, visit my movie lists, and go here for a guide to colors and symbols. (Star ratings are on a 0-5 scale, with quarter-star increments for feature films, half-star increments for shows and whole stars only for shorts.)

Feature films are in bold, TV/web shows are in regular, short films are in italics, and the names of festivals are in ALL CAPS.
