Suffering Sappho! There certainly are a lot of new movie releases this week! (Yes, that’s Wonder Woman’s catchphrase, chosen in honor of the Wonder Woman origin story biopic Professor Marston & the Wonder Women.)

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women **

And speaking of biopics, there were simply too many to be reviewed: Watergate’s Deep Throat, a legendary Latina songstress, and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall all slipped past us (though Scott may get that last one by this time tomorrow). We did, however, catch the Van Gogh postmortem Loving Vincent and the dancer doc Bobbi Jene.

And speaking of documentaries, Trophy’s investigation of big-game hunting is just really good movie-making, if a bit hard to watch.

Also reviewed: Jackie Chan’s revenge thriller The Foreigner; a giallo version of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Black Cat, and a drama about who gets Daddy’s dough when he’s gone.

Also unreviewed: Happy Death Day.
