‘Cherry’ Review: An Ambitiously Artful Epic Carried by Tom Holland’s Career-Best Performance

On this episode of The Global Film Podcast, Editor-In-Chief and Host Diego Andaluz reviews Apple TV+’s Cherry. Joined by Jeffrey Zhang (Strange Harbors), Tessa Smith (Mama’s Geeky), & Ricky Valero (Music City Drive-In), they discuss their in-depth thoughts on the technical and thematic strengths and shortcomings of the film, among other notable highlights.

In Cherry, Cherry drifts from college dropout to army medic in Iraq – anchored only by his true love, Emily. But after returning from the war with PTSD, his life spirals into drugs and crime as he struggles to find his place in the world.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Cherry overcomes a rocky opening to become an artistic triumph for all involved. Anthony & Joe Russo’s ambitious direction shines along with a revelatory career-best performance from Tom Holland, resulting in an award-worthy film that deserved to be Apple’s first major contender
