98% Inside Out (2015) "A work of nifty craftsmanship and considerable complexity beneath its unassuming surface. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Jun 18, 2015
81% The Overnight (2015) "There's an insidious cleverness to "The Overnight" that keeps the audience just a bit off balance. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Jun 17, 2015
82% The Yes Men Are Revolting (2015) "A film that sometimes feels shapeless and self-involved but in its best moments tries to engage the Yes Men's fans in a new and more reflective mode. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Jun 11, 2015
71% Jurassic World (2015) "I'm not sure what specific qualities "Jurassic World" could be said to possess, beyond a vague sense of its own importance that ... comes across in the finished product as preening self-congratulation. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Jun 11, 2015
93% Spy (2015) "McCarthy has much more to discover about herself as an actor and an avatar and a cultural signifier, and I hope she doesn't get trapped by one role, one genre or one franchise. But her campaign of conquest is going well. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Jun 9, 2015
90% Love & Mercy (2015) "When you consider all the ways that "Love & Mercy" could have gone terribly wrong, and how full of life it is in the end (and, yes, of love and mercy), I think the end product is almost miraculous. " ‐ Salon.com

Posted Jun 9, 2015
32% Entourage (2015) "Did this overstuffed quality of "Entourage," its KFC Double Down too-much-is-not-enough-ness, ultimately work on me? Absolutely not. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Jun 2, 2015
83% Results (2015) "Somebody needs to give Andrew Bujalski a TV series. If "Results," his unlikely but delightful new film set in and around an Austin fitness studio run by hard-bodied Guy Pearce, were a TV pilot, I would be hooked on the show already. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted May 28, 2015
50% San Andreas (2015) "Considered as pure spectacle, "San Andreas" is gripping and effective, as well as a somewhat interesting form of counter-narrative: A vision of near-term apocalypse that has nothing to do with climate change, monsters or alien invaders. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted May 28, 2015
84% Heaven Knows What (2015) "I'm glad I saw this film; considered on its own merits, in terms of what I understand as its artistic goals, it's a wrenching and finely wrought piece of work. " ‐ Salon.com

89% When Marnie Was There (2015) "There are moments of hushed magic here, of moonlit, seaside and tree-shadowed visual poetry, that rival anything Ghibli has ever created. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted May 27, 2015
86% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) "A film that feels charged with life and hunger and romantic-erotic energy, with the ever-present danger of fire and storm and financial catastrophe that connected life in 19th-century rural England to the Middle Ages, and to mythology. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted May 1, 2015

Posted Apr 28, 2015
25% Child 44 (2015) "Given these actors and the ravishing decrepitude of the locations and costumes and the lustrous cinematography of Oliver Wood, I found it more than watchable the whole way through. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Apr 18, 2015
69% The Dead Lands (2015) "Once you get past an awkward and artificial beginning and roll with the movie's crazy rhythm, The Dead Lands is also a blast, and one that delivers an unexpected emotional wallop along with gore, thrills and spectacular scenery. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Apr 16, 2015

Posted Apr 9, 2015
84% While We're Young (2015) "A knotty exploration of the dialectic between sincerity and authenticity, or the shifting relationship between truth and fiction in an age where we're no longer sure what those words mean ... " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Mar 30, 2015
29% Get Hard (2015) "A confused and contradictory mess. " ‐ Salon.com

Posted Mar 20, 2015
17% The Gunman (2015) "I've pretty much always enjoyed watching Penn in everything, not despite of his hambone tendency to milk every moment of every shot but because of it. This stupid movie is no exception ... " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Mar 19, 2015
88% Backcountry (2015) "On one hand, this kind of narrative serves to remind us that we haven't totally vanquished the natural world and it retains some of its ancient dangers. But on a deeper level, something more complicated and sinister is going on. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Mar 18, 2015
97% It Follows (2015) ""It Follows" pretty much earns its buzz as the scariest and best-engineered American horror movie of recent years, and that's all down to Mitchell's sophisticated understanding of technique and the trust and freedom he accords his youthful cast. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Mar 13, 2015
29% Cymbeline (2015) "If this willfully peculiar and daring "Cymbeline" isn't to all tastes, it brings back the blood, the thrills and the sense of moral discovery to a long-neglected work. " ‐ Salon.com

Posted Mar 6, 2015

Posted Mar 6, 2015
96% '71 (2015) "It's a riveting, man-on-the-run genre movie, almost a combination of "Black Hawk Down" and "After Hours," rather than an allegory or a historical treatise. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Feb 28, 2015
85% Wild Canaries (2015) "It offers an unpredictable ride that's kind of fun, or at least sporadically simulates fun. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Feb 27, 2015
79% Bluebird (2014) "If you're willing to enter the world of downbeat northern gloom in Bluebird, it's a delicate and affecting drama with grace notes of mystery and redemption. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Feb 27, 2015
96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) "A surprisingly delicate vampire spoof that's both hilarious and respectful, and that captures all the silliest, scariest and saddest aspects of the bloodsucking tradition in one delicious package. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Feb 15, 2015
25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) "I wouldn't say that Taylor-Johnson has made a good movie from "Fifty Shades of Grey," precisely. That's asking too much. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Feb 11, 2015
26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "This movie often plays like a super-expensive, 21st-century version of one of those "Star Wars" knockoffs made around 1980 by people who weren't George Lucas. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Feb 6, 2015

Posted Feb 2, 2015
74% Amira & Sam (2015) "It gets by on low-level sweetness and guile until delivering an unexpectedly powerful emotional sucker-punch at the end. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Jan 29, 2015
93% The Duke Of Burgundy (2015) "While Strickland's films already aren't like anyone else's, his real secret is that even in this strange constructed world, his characters feel like real people struggling with issues that aren't exotic at all. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted Jan 27, 2015
10% The Boy Next Door (2015) "There are many grades of terrible in Hollywood, and this is pretty nearly the worst. " ‐ Salon.com

Posted Jan 19, 2015
98% Appropriate Behavior (2015) "If this is a familiar kind of film with a familiar setting and a familiar resolution, that intense delicacy makes it clear that its creator is an unusual talent. " ‐ Salon.com
