Consensus Comparison: Aferim!, Ripstein January 23, 2016

Sundance is happening right now and so far this site has very little to offer for people who want to read about that festival, aside from these Table of Contents and Rankings pages, both of which are developing very slowly. It may take until Monday to see Sundance movies on the homepage. (Update: I’m happy to report that there are now two Sundance films on the homepage.) Also, I’ve decided to tweet about movies once four reviews are collected, not five. Four sounds like enough.

Your Film of the Week is Arturo Ripstein’s Bleak Street.
