It’s been a rough week for titles referencing darkness, as the new season of “Black Mirror” and X-Men movie “Dark Phoenix” both stumbled with our critics. But for every post-“Bandersnatch” disappointment, there’s an exciting new documentary or a Sundance smash being released. Keep reading for a roundup of all of IndieWire’s reviews from this week:
David Ehrlich writes that the lackluster X-Men flick was doomed from the get-go by its lack of a raison d’etre.

Mindy Kaling’s Sundance hit adapts a time-honored formula to comment on our changing world, earning a B+ review from Kate Erbland.
To David Ehrlich, this less-than-stellar thriller serves as a reminder of how good Korean crime cinema has become. It may not live up to comparable entries to the genre, but some excellent performances make it watchable.
