—— The Divine Move (2014) " Excessive violence and off-the-wall plotting undermine an intriguing game-based premise." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 25, 2014
15% And So It Goes (2014) " As generic as its title, this comedy aimed squarely at "mature" audiences may find itself roundly rejected by seniors, if they have any taste." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 24, 2014
67% A Letter to Momo (2014) " Literally beset by goblins, this strained animated effort should have concentrated on the human elements of its story rather than the supernatural." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 23, 2014
64% A Master Builder (2014) " A personal project which should have stayed personal, this turgid yet flat Ibsen adaptation is third-time unlucky for Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 22, 2014
63% Fanny (2014) " "Classic" is a word all too casually bandied about, but for Daniel Auteuil's screen adaptation of this beloved French trilogy it is completely apropos. " — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 17, 2014
65% Alive Inside (2014) " Incredibly moving and powerful documentary about combatting Alzheimer's with music. Without the use of a single CGI effect, you see literal miracles happening here." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 17, 2014
100% Underwater Dreams (2014) " As captivating as it is important, Mary Mazzio's seemingly modest tract about immigration achievement grabs you by the heart, as it grows and grows into something big and vital." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 10, 2014
96% Wrinkles (2014) " Literally dedicated to "all the old people of today, and of tomorrow," this animated look at aging is deeply humanistic, immensely moving, often hilarious and quite, quite wonderful." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 7, 2014
56% Marius (2014) " Utterly delightful, almost uncanny in its perfect period confidence and brio, this is a reminder once more of why we love French films." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 3, 2014
67% Me and You (2014) " Bernardo Bertolucci's most negligible effort to date, in which he takes a familiar - for him - premise and does very little with it." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 3, 2014
97% Life Itself (2014) " As sad as its finale was, the life of film critic Roger Ebert had as much incident, drama and joy as any ten movies he ever reviewed, and this completely absorbing doc tells his deeply human story with rare truth and beauty." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 30, 2014
89% Siddharth (2014) " Unfortunately, Mehta does not retain a firm grip on his storyline and the film, perhaps too enraptured by the bustlingly colorful locales of India, which are featured in lengthy, dialogue-less passages, becomes rather meandering." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 26, 2014
50% Postman Pat: The Movie (2014) " The script is a chaotic morass of mixed intentions, often forsaking what would really appeal to a young child in favor of cynical attempts to keep their parents awake." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 26, 2014
49% Yves Saint Laurent (2014) " Melancholy and elegiac in the most evocative of ways, Jalil Lespert's biopic has brought the life of fashion genius Yves Saint Laurent to the screen in a way that manages to be ever-tasteful as well as piquantly provocative." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 24, 2014
33% I Am I (2014) " Towne's premise is, to say the least, a bit trying, and she does not help matters by presenting it in such a grimly purposeful manner, devoid of any relieving black humor one would think inherent in her material." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 12, 2014
100% Burning Bush (2014) " Don't be daunted by its length -- this historically rooted poetical thriller based on the events of the Prague Spring has a rare intelligence and drive that make the hours fairly fly by." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 10, 2014
91% The Case Against 8 (2014) " What could easily have been a yawn-inducing assemblage of dry legalities is instead a profoundly moving, radiantly smart documentary about the fight for gay marriage." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 5, 2014
88% Test (2014) " ...not a whole hell of a lot happens in writer-director Chris Mason Johnson's Test, which looks particularly thin after the recent HBO debut of Larry Kramer's AIDS-themed The Normal Heart." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 5, 2014
54% Ping Pong Summer (2014) " 1980s nostalgia again, served up family-style, but all too wanly." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 5, 2014
82% Dormant Beauty (2014) " The result is one huge cinematic morass of gloom, largely unleavened by any redeeming humor -- however black -- or true empathy." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 5, 2014
27% Burning Blue (2014) " This stiff saga of gays in the military, with its manly men being manly together, evokes that tale of repression Brokeback Mountain, while somehow being much less homoerotic than Top Gun." — Film Journal International
Posted Jun 5, 2014
63% The Grand Seduction (2014) " The Grand Seduction is a bit on the preciously twee side - there's a surfeit of boozy old codgers here - and lacks the whimsical enchantment which lit similar conceits... but overall it's entertaining enough." — Film Journal International
Posted May 28, 2014
—— The Fatal Encounter (2014) " Lavish, long and impressive, but this epic torn from the pages of Korean history would have benefited from a more straightforward expositional style." — Film Journal International
Posted May 22, 2014
40% Grand départ (2014) " The accouterments are incessantly elegant but do not disguise the hollowness at the heart of this labored family study." — Film Journal International
Posted May 21, 2014
—— Next Year Jerusalem (2014) " Life can begin at 90 -- something which this appealing doc demonstrates with admirable humanity." — Film Journal International
Posted May 19, 2014
73% A Short History Of Decay (2014) " Writer-director Michael Maren takes on a subject that is affecting baby-boomers all over the world...and he does so with a certain necessary seriousness and sensitivity. The problem here is that his film is neither very deep nor particularly moving." — Film Journal International
Posted May 19, 2014
—— Still I Strive (2014) " The beautiful locales of Cambodia provide a rich background for this sensitive documentary about children impressively overcoming personal tragedy through performance." — Film Journal International
Posted May 9, 2014
33% Stage Fright (2014) " This twee yet gory musical-horror mash-up is just a horror." — Film Journal International
Posted May 8, 2014
—— The Rescuers: Heroes Of The Holocaust (2014) " Incredible stories of bravery are revealed here, but a taste-challenged approach and a poor, ubiquitous music score dull the impact of the oft-told message." — Film Journal International
Posted May 8, 2014
—— Broken (2014) " ...Broken is a thoroughly dark and nasty enterprise." — Film Journal International
Posted May 8, 2014
16% Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2014) " Direly lacking the innocence and charm so necessary to this brand of fantasy, this Oz has a few good moments but is more likely to engender viewer indigestion rather than delight." — Film Journal International
Posted May 8, 2014
88% Chef (2014) " Although more than a tad hokey, sentimental and wish-fulfilling...Chef is a thorough crowd-pleaser which should have that elusive fun-for-all-ages kind of road-movie appeal." — Film Journal International
Posted May 8, 2014
71% Palo Alto (2014) " Director Gia Coppola makes a very impressive debut." — Film Journal International
Posted May 5, 2014
52% Decoding Annie Parker (2014) " What might have been a great, fascinating real-life medical detective story suffers from a serious plot imbalance and one-sided character focus." — Film Journal International
Posted May 2, 2014
94% Ida (2014) " You really care about these people, and given the truly foreign and basically grim nature of their story, that is no small achievement indeed." — Film Journal International
Posted May 1, 2014
100% Speak The Music: Robert Mann And The Mysteries Of Chamber Music (2014) " Richly rewarding, if maybe too brief, portrait of a great violinist. " — Film Journal International
Posted May 1, 2014
63% For No Good Reason (2014) " Ralph Steadman is one of the greatest, most underappreciated living artists, so it's wonderful that this celebratory documentary has arrived. It also happens to be one of the finest docs ever made about an artist." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 24, 2014
74% Young & Beautiful (Jeune Et Jolie) (2014) " Writer-director Francois Ozon continues in the absolutely riveting, ultra-voyeuristic vein he carried off with such consummate confidence in In the House with this equally mesmerizing study of yet one more adolescent with a deeply secret life." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 24, 2014
—— Tanzania: A Journey Within (2014) " ...a film experience that might be best described as semi-absorbing." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 24, 2014
31% The Girl and Death (2014) " As lifeless as its heroine, whose fate is so baldly spelled out in that title, this period confection strives for high romance but achieves mere ennui." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 24, 2014
13% A Promise (2014) " Handsomely filmed but wan period romance." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 18, 2014
83% Kid Cannabis (2014) " Writer-director John Stockwell finds the perfect loose yet manic tone for his ode to weed, filling his script with mordantly pungent lines" — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 18, 2014
43% Make Your Move (2014) " The plot is completely shallow and endlessly derivative, but the performers manage somehow to pierce through the cliché-ridden morass and offer some charm...Make Your Move delivers a reliably good time." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 18, 2014
—— Visions of Mary Frank (2014) " Deeply loving, if too slight" — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 15, 2014
86% The Jewish Cardinal (2014) " Informative, absorbing, but as obvious as its title and a bit too glib for its own good, this French import will appeal mainly to religious addicts fascinated by the feverishly agenda-ridden internal workings of the Catholic Church." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 11, 2014
89% Dancing In Jaffa (2014) " Marvelously moving and quite inspirational documentary about the potent, peace-making power of dance." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 10, 2014
80% The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came To Eden (2014) " Fascinating documentary about the human history of the Galapagos Islands which is, as is so often the case, more dramatic than any kind of cooked-up tropical fiction." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 3, 2014
—— Nothing Without You (2014) " So abysmal, so unintentionally funny." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 28, 2014
95% Finding Vivian Maier (2014) " Completely captivating doc about the most undiscovered of real artists" — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 28, 2014
54% Breathe In (2014) " It's a pity so much deadly serious effort has gone into something that isn't very original or exciting in the first place." — Film Journal International
