DESTROYER

Janet's TAKE: #DestroyerMovie is a slow-paced, but effective crime thriller that's bolstered by Nicole Kidman's award-worthy performance. Grade/B+

Director Kusama wisely focuses
on Kidman to carry this standard cops-and-robbers noir. Toby Kebbell (2016's "Ben-Hur") makes a nasty villain.

Directed by Karyn Kusama
