  1. Michael Peer's rating of the film Novitiate

    There is an old saying that says 90% of directing is casting. The truth is that Margaret Betts did a phenomenal job casting her film but not much else. Expect an Oscar nomination for Melissa Leo. Besides her cast, when it's the director's time to shine or when her A-listers are off screen, she fails miserably as we can see in the laughably clumsy opening childhood sequence and her visionless camera movement.
