Posted Jun 25, 2015
20% 7 Minutes (2015) "This compact, familiar heist flick hews strictly to B-movie convention. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jun 25, 2015
42% A Little Chaos (2015) "[Sabine] triumphs over a soft script and stock characters not just because this is Kate Winslet, Titanic survivor (her heart will go on), but because Rickman has flanked her with so much British acting talent. " ‐ Seattle Weekly

Posted Jun 19, 2015
82% Me & Earl & the Dying Girl (2015) "The movie's first half is an utterly delightful spin on the usual mopey YA themes. It's impossible to stop smiling at Greg and Earl's series of arthouse movie remakes. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jun 19, 2015

Posted Jun 19, 2015
98% Inside Out (2015) "Pixar has now updated the mapping of our minds with a much broader palette, using the very latest technology and even consulting neuroscientists. The fanciful animated result is a combo of Oz-style quest and bright-hued PET scan. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jun 19, 2015
89% Dope (2015) "I'm not sure Dope offers anything more than a good time, but it offers a very good time. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jun 19, 2015
A- 84% While We're Young (2015) "While We're Young is a career-best for [Stiller and Baumbach]: generous, wise and consoling for those facing their forlorn 40s. " ‐ Willamette Week

Posted Feb 4, 2015

Posted Jan 5, 2015
90% Obvious Child (2014) "As we laugh and wince at her heroine's behavior, Robespierre gets the tone exactly right in Obvious Child. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 5, 2015
91% Locke (2014) "Hardy gives Locke a calm, steady self-assessment, a kind of lucid despair. He's a guy forced to realize in one night that his life has no foundation. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 5, 2015
95% Whiplash (2014) "[An] intense, brutal, and often comical tale of mentorship gone amok. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 4, 2015
88% Actress (2014) "You could call Burre extremely selfish or extremely skilled, yet it's impossible to dismiss her complaints. Actress raises but refuses to answer some unsettling questions. How strong is your marriage? And: How well do you know your spouse? " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 4, 2014
77% Fury (2014) "It's in no way a surprising movie; the plot and ending are essentially what you expect; and that earns it a creaky kind of integrity. " ‐ Seattle Weekly

Posted Jun 24, 2014
81% The Broken Circle Breakdown (2013) "This is a band you would pay to see on tour. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Nov 27, 2013
71% The Institute (2013) "You're unsure if he's a Werner Erhard-style huckster or a Silicon Alley tub-thumper about to do a product launch. That uncertainty mirrors the players' nervous yet giddy involvement. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Oct 17, 2013
53% The Muslims Are Coming (2013) "It's all very admirable, but you may find yourself nodding in agreement more than doubled with laughter. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Sep 26, 2013
94% The History Of Future Folk (2013) "This is a shaggy, enjoyable, homebrewed sci-fi tale where the costumes and plot resemble one of those lo-fi "sweded" remakes in Be Kind Rewind. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Aug 14, 2013
77% Somm (2013) "By the time we get to Dallas for the big exam, we're so invested in these four funny, personable fellows that failure would be shattering for us too. " ‐ Seattle Weekly

Posted Nov 27, 2012
63% Café de Flore (2012) "This mushy, mystical French-Canadian melodrama tries to make parallel a pair of love stories: one between preteens with Down syndrome in 1969 Paris, and the second between a Quebecois DJ and his new amour some 40 years later. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Nov 1, 2012
28% Backwards (2012) "Corny and predictable, sure, but Backwards will appeal to a few junior oarswomen around Seattle. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Oct 10, 2012
93% Indie Game: The Movie (2012) "An insightful new geek documentary, well directed by first-timers Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 15, 2012
