Alex Garland movie - Jessie Buckley

It’s now been three years since writer/director Alex Garland made Annihilation, a visually stunning, occasionally confounding, and ultimately jaw-dropping piece of science fiction cinema that ended up being my favorite film of 2018.

fargo season 4 review

The Coen Brothers make movies about quirky characters, but it would be nice if Noah Hawley and the team behind the Fargo TV series would remember that there’s more to those movies than the quirk. In adapting both the Fargo movie and borrowing several other beats from the Big Book of Coen, the Fargo TV series leans heavily on the quirkiness, and season 4 practically goes overboard, populating this latest installment with a collection of individuals who all behave like visitors from another planet.

“I’m thinking of ending things.” So thinks a young woman (Jessie Buckley) as she sets off for a road trip with her boyfriend Jake (Jesse Plemons) to meet Jake’s parents. The young couple has been dating for about six weeks, and there’s a spark between them – albeit an awkward one. But as the car plods on, the snow drifts down, and the wiper blades hypnotically cut back and forth, the young woman can’t shake that thought, lodged in her brain like song lyrics, or a parasite. “I’m thinking of ending things.” Just what is she thinking of ending? The relationship with Jake? Or something else? And why is Jake suddenly acting so strange?

So the American and British governments team up to recruit a typical English businessman named Greville Wynne (Benedict Cumberbatch) to make contact for them, all in the hopes of preventing all-out nuclear war.
