3/5 40% Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People (2014) " It's essential info presented with little imagination." — Time Out New York
Posted Aug 20, 2014
5/5 100% Level Five (2014) " By using Laura as an avatar, Marker actually helps us see the visuals and their knotty meanings much more clearly." — Time Out New York
Posted Aug 12, 2014
4/5 68% Jealousy (2014) " In comparison with near-impenetrable Garrel efforts like Regular Lovers (2005) and Frontier of the Dawn (2008), Jealousy cuts straight to the heart." — Time Out New York
Posted Aug 12, 2014
5/5 100% Boy Meets Girl (1984) (1984) " The director's slight uncertainty creates a fascinating tension that works in Boy Meets Girl's favor. You empathize with the characters' struggles even as they are both kept at a critical distance." — Time Out New York
Posted Aug 6, 2014
5/5 100% Fifi Howls From Happiness (2014) " The film rarely leaves the subject's Rome apartment, yet it never feels static." — Time Out New York
Posted Aug 6, 2014
3/5 78% Happy Christmas (2014) " Swanberg is good at futzing with our moment-to-moment expectations, but he can't shape all these well-acted scenes into a satisfying whole." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 30, 2014
3/5 61% Finding Fela! (2014) " Gibney tends toward that dutiful doc style that mixes talking heads and archival clips into a flavorless stew -- a bland complement to Fela's zesty on- and offstage presence." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 30, 2014
1/5 65% Lucy (2014) " The funny thing about all these sub-Matrix shenanigans is that they're genuinely meant to stoke thought and reflection. Frankly, though, few movies have left me feeling as shorn of gray matter." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 24, 2014
4/5 49% Magic in the Moonlight (2014) " It's a simple premise that Allen complicates with an illusionist's expertise." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 22, 2014
2/5 63% Mood Indigo (2014) " For the most part, Gondry's overwrought visions repel real feeling." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 15, 2014
3/5 73% A Master Builder (2014) " There's an overall lifelessness to A Master Builder, as if Demme were embalming the Shawn-Gregory stage show rather than making it live onscreen." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 15, 2014
1/5 22% A Long Way Down (2014) " Everything that transpires onscreen feels wholly inauthentic and calculated for maximum treacle." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 10, 2014
3/5 24% Tammy (2014) " They have little feel for the technical side of filmmaking; the imagery is flat and the editing amateurish. Most shots seem held for a beat too long or too short, wreaking havoc with the comic rhythm." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 2, 2014
5/5 93% Closed Curtain (2014) " The journey is often challenging, but the rewards-heady, emotional, provocative and invigorating-are endless." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 1, 2014
3/5 69% They Came Together (2014) " Everyone involved seems above the rom-com conventions they're satirizing, so anxious to get to each punch line that they let the connective tissue languish." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 24, 2014
2/5 83% Begin Again (2014) " False moments far outweigh the genuine ones ..." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 24, 2014
3/5 91% The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (2014) " A movie that preaches to its rafters-raising choir." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 24, 2014
5/5 98% A Summer's Tale (2014) " Think of it as a thriller by Hitchcock-a Rohmer favorite-only with words, not knives, that cut straight to the heart." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 18, 2014
3/5 59% Hellion (2014) " Features a fair share of forced drama ..." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 11, 2014
2/5 54% The Signal (2014) " Things quickly fall apart, with a pileup of sub-Rod Serling narrative twists, a choppy action sequence heavy on the Michael Bay slo-mo and a sequel-ready climax ..." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 11, 2014
2/5 63% The Sacrament (2014) " Only Jones seems most at home, striking just the right note of low-key malevolence. You'd follow him anywhere-maybe even into a better movie." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 3, 2014
4/5 98% The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) " William Wyler's powerful, if cumbersome prestige picture ..." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 3, 2014
4/5 83% Dormant Beauty (2014) " [A] tough, poignant drama ..." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 3, 2014
4/4 100% The Wire: Season 4 (TV, 2006) " No one is a star on The Wire. And this, ultimately, may be the show's trump card. " — Slant Magazine
Posted May 29, 2014
3/5 86% Gore Vidal: The United States Of Amnesia (2014) " Mostly for those already fascinated by Vidal's colorful life." — Time Out New York
Posted May 20, 2014
2/5 25% Lost River " A chimeric stroke job that leaves you utterly unfulfilled." — Time Out New York
Posted May 20, 2014
5/5 100% National Gallery (2014) " You may initially find yourself missing the emotional pull of the film's first sections, but it's all to an increasingly intriguing point." — Time Out New York
Posted May 20, 2014
2/5 69% The Homesman (2014) " It doesn't help that Swank never finds a way into this highly unappealing character, or that Jones (mostly phoning in the pitiable surliness) avoids delving very deeply into the story's proto-feminist undercurrents." — Time Out New York
Posted May 20, 2014
2/5 88% Foxcatcher (2014) " Once Miller lays all his cards on the table ... you realize you haven't been watching people struggling with the very real temptations of unchecked privilege, so much as fumbling blindly in a glib, gloomy satire of American exceptionalism." — Time Out New York
Posted May 20, 2014
2/5 48% Wolf Creek 2 (2014) " This Creek has run dry." — Time Out New York
Posted May 13, 2014
3/5 60% Million Dollar Arm (2014) " Every emotional beat is calculated ..." — Time Out New York
Posted May 13, 2014
5/5 79% Queen Margot (La Reine Margot) (1994) " Death seems to linger in every inch of the frame, yet the film lives and breathes like few others." — Time Out New York
Posted May 8, 2014
3/5 72% Palo Alto (2014) " Palo Alto doesn't play like a ticking time bomb. Instead, the film is empathetic to a fault ..." — Time Out New York
Posted May 8, 2014
1/5 31% Bad Johnson (2014) " The whole sorry enterprise leaves you feeling, well, shafted." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 29, 2014
3/5 47% Blood Glacier (2014) " The attempts made to flesh out Janek and Tanja's rocky relationship, especially, are pure Screenwriting 101 contrivance." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 29, 2014
5/5 92% The Tragedy of Othello: The Moor of Venice (Othello) (1952) " A Shakespeare movie that lives and breathes like few others." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 22, 2014
3/5 31% The Girl and Death (2014) " Though consistently watchable, never plucks the heartstrings in the way of a great star-crossed romance." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 22, 2014
4/5 94% Gojira (1956) " Honda's satire is cutting, with several characters resigned to living with the threat of constant cataclysm." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 15, 2014
5/5 100% Manakamana (2014) " You could hardly ask for a more beautiful vision of souls in transit." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 15, 2014
3/5 57% Proxy (2014) " There's enough talent here to suggest that Parker could one day give us a truly memorable white-knuckler, but Proxy is too tenderfooted to stand on its own." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 15, 2014
5/5 97% The Young Girls of Rochefort (Les Demoiselles de Rochefort) (1968) " Despite the consistently sprightly surface, there's a somber undercurrent that lingers even when love triumphs and the music swells." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 8, 2014
3/5 86% Joe (2014) " Green, as is his wont, too often strains for poetic effect through flowery voiceover and tone-deaf interactions-like those between Joe and his latest short-term girlfriend-that undercut the genuineness." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 8, 2014
3/5 74% Oculus (2014) " For all its genre delights, Oculus is little more than a well-tooled creepshow." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 8, 2014
1/5 24% Goodbye World (2014) " Makes you long for Armageddon." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 1, 2014
3/5 81% The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came To Eden (2014) " The doc never yokes all these threads into anything particularly deep or illuminating. The Galapagos Affair is less social commentary, more gossip." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 1, 2014
2/5 77% Noah (2014) " Rock Transformers." — Time Out New York
Posted Mar 29, 2014
3/5 91% Mistaken for Strangers (2014) " The brotherly-love epiphany to which the film builds does effectively pluck the heartstrings, but there's a lingering sense that we're being had." — Time Out New York
Posted Mar 26, 2014
3/5 95% Finding Vivian Maier (2014) " Maloof (a very aggravating onscreen presence) tries way too hard to force Maier's genius down our throat: His outrage at the snootily dismissive art-world establishment, however genuine, comes off like a childish tantrum." — Time Out New York
Posted Mar 26, 2014
2/5 88% Cheap Thrills (2014) " Cheap Thrills is little more than low-budget torture porn for the doobie-addled dudebro contingent." — Time Out New York
Posted Mar 26, 2014
3/5 78% Veronica Mars (2014) " For better and for worse, this is a movie where you can truly say that fans have gotten everything they've paid for." — Time Out New York
