"Clock" an absorbing nightmare for childless adults

"Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret." is so wonderful that it deserves to be called an "instant classic"

"Somewhere in Queens" finds honesty, humor, and warmth in Italian-American family dramedy

"The Black Demon" gets points for competence but loses points for being boring

"Fear" should have feared itself and not been made

"Showing Up" a low-key, dryly amusing slice-of-artist-life from Kelly Reichardt

"Carmen" doesn't quite sweep you away with love story but still casts an entrancing spell

"Evil Dead Rise" a lean, bloody hellride set to an eleven

"Beau is Afraid" marks another bold, brilliant masterwork from Ari Aster
