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 90% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) " Sophisticated, profound, tender and well-acted. It's far better than the overrated Birdman. " ‐ NYC Movie Guru
Posted Apr 10, 2015
8.9/10 96% Black Souls (2015) " If you're looking for an intelligent, atmospheric, slow-burning crime drama that's anti-Hollywood, Black Souls won't disappoint you. " ‐ NYC Movie Guru

Posted Mar 27, 2015
7.66 66% Zombeavers (2015) " Campy, dumb, silly and outrageous---the vein of a Roger Corman film. " ‐ NYC Movie Guru

6.000009 55% My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn (2015) " A mildly insightful and intimate peak behind the curtain, but it's ultimately more potatoes than meat. " ‐ NYC Movie Guru

9.52/10 99% Starred Up (2014) " Gritty, intense, unflinching and taut. An emotional punch to the gut. Jack O'Connell delivers a bravura, star-making performance. It's the best prison drama since A Prophet. " ‐ NYC Movie Guru

Posted Dec 25, 2014
3/10 53% The Interview (2014) " A toothless, brainless comedic misfire that's low on laughs, wit and clever satire. If you're expecting this to become a cult classic comedy, you'll be sorely disappointed. " ‐ NYC Movie Guru

Posted Nov 9, 2014
8.5/10 50% Viva la libertà (2014) " A smart, refreshingly whimsical and witty political satire that boasts winning performances by Toni Servillo in dual roles. It might as well be called Politics Italian-Style. " ‐ NYC Movie Guru
Posted Nov 8, 2014
8.8/10 No Score Yet Red Dot On The Ocean (2014) " Equally thrilling, inspirational and poignant. " ‐ NYC Movie Guru

7.2/10 85% John Wick (2014) " Lean, gritty and filled with visual pizzazz. It's refreshing to see someone other than Liam Neeson in a revenge thriller. Keanu Reeves is in top form! " ‐ NYC Movie Guru
Posted Oct 26, 2014
9.65/10 98% Citizenfour (2014) " Calm, yet enraging. Among the most frightening and important films of the year. It must be seen by all Americans for the sake of democracy. Every U.S. government official should undergo a mandatory mental health evaluation! " ‐ NYC Movie Guru
