5.49/10 8% Aloft (2015) "Lyrical and elliptical, but often confusing with awkward editing and a non-linear structure that deflates its dramatic momentum. Even Jennifer Connelly's convincingly moving performance can't save the film. " ‐ NYC Movie Guru

6.65/10 78% 24 Days (2015) "Suspenseful with moving performances, but suffers from a pedestrian, Hollywood-style screenplay and brisk pacing that doesn't give the film enough room to breathe nor does it trust your patience. " ‐ NYC Movie Guru
Posted Apr 25, 2015
9.12/10 89% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) "Sophisticated, profound, tender and well-acted. It's far better than the overrated Birdman. " ‐ NYC Movie Guru
