Ignorant Bliss: A thousand and One review
A fantastic performance from Teyana Taylor anchors this film about a mother and son that goes in ways you wouldn’t expect that also captures the spirit of mid-’90s through early 2000s New York City perfectly. A
Ignorant Bliss: Dungeons and Dragons – Honor Among Thieves review
They finally have made a good adaptation of this game to film. The film has the right amount of humor and respect for the source that works for those who know it and those who have no idea but want a good time. B
Ignorant Bliss: Tetris review
This film goes from plucky tech success stories into an international business and political thriller and back again. It’s nothing as you’d expect from a video game film and is just as engaging as the game is. B+
Ignorant Bliss Review: Luther – Fallen Sun

Soderbergh and screenwriter Reid Carolin...
