Reviews

Over the course of our more than 15-year existence, FSR has published thousands of reviews. We have reviewed movies from film festivals like Sundance, SXSW, TIFF, and Cannes. We review new theatrical and streaming releases. We even have two recurring columns — Previously On and Up Next — in which we review new and returning TV shows. And just as a fun fact, we used to give out letter grades with our reviews.
