Consensus Comparison: 10 Cloverfield Lane March 12, 2016

At the bottom of this post is Jennifer Peedom’s Sherpa, which has screened at last weekend’s True/False even though it opened commercially in New York last October. It was a very quiet opening, which may be why True/False was willing to screen it.

I wouldn’t say any of the movies below qualify as essential viewing, but Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups has expanded this weekend and is Your Film of the Week.
