Posted Apr 27, 2015
70% Marie's Story (2015) "Based on a true story that's perhaps less famous than some others but just as intriguing, this serious-minded -- no Helen Keller jokes, please -- period film is nonetheless quite entertaining and, finally, moving. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 27, 2015
83% Far from Men (2015) "The original's existentialist undertow is mostly lost in shallow characterizations and scenes that perfunctorily tip their hat to genre tropes rather than illuminating the characters. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Posted Feb 25, 2015
88% Traitors (2015) "A rare genre film from the Maghreb that centers on a female universe, Traitors benefits immensely from a spiky lead turn from newcomer Chaimae Ben Acha, whose innate charisma helps paper over the film's at times overly familiar plot twists. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 17, 2015
No Score Yet People of the Seventh Fire (1996) "A fascinating and important documentary that takes some time to get going. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 7, 2015
22% The Strongest Man (2015) "The kind of indie doodle of a movie in which several potentially interesting ideas co-exist but never quite come together and where supporters will call the narrative "freewheeling" while naysayers will insist on "rambling." " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

75% I Am Michael "Thankfully, the screenplay doesn't portray the story in simple terms of good or evil but that doesn't mean that there's quite enough nuance or insight to constantly elevate the material above the level of a well-made but TV-ready biopic. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 24, 2015

Posted Jan 24, 2015
83% The Royal Road (2015) "If this ambitious film finally never quite coheres into a single whole, something which an artificial division into several chapters only helps to underline, it does provide a lot to chew on along the way. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
