Seberg - 1960s race biopic misses mark but delivers captivating performances
SEBERG
1960s race biopic misses mark but delivers captivating performances
While the film shines in its performance, it stumbles from a messy script and lack of focus. It's worth checking out, especially for Kristen Stewart, and to learn about this part of history.
Underwater - A solid subaquatic monster mash
UNDERWATER
A solid subaquatic monster mash
