Posted Nov 12, 2014
17% Der Turm (The Tower) (2014) "The Tower offers solid performances and stories that hold interest, but its look is more that of TV movie than atmospheric evocation of a dreary historic period. " ‐ Film Journal International

63% Rudderless (2014) "Two solid talents - actor Billy Crudup and actor-turned-director William H. Macy - have both thrived in theatre and been frequently seen in indie films. They give Rudderless some heft and polish, but the material rings too familiar. " ‐ Film Journal International

Posted Sep 18, 2014
50% Archaeology Of A Woman (2014) "Plot holes aside, Archaeology offers powerful performances from the female leads, who also happen to be incredibly convincing as mother and daughter. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Sep 12, 2014

Posted Aug 20, 2014

Posted Aug 18, 2014

Posted Aug 15, 2014
68% The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014) "Ultimately, the lack of surprises becomes moot because this Helen Mirren-starrer delivers a feel-good/looks-great experience that might even seduce a good portion of upscale audiences happier when feasting on edginess and intellectual challenge. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Aug 6, 2014
88% A Most Wanted Man (2014) "Stylish, dense contemporary spy drama about a suspected terrorist on the loose in 2008 Hamburg has the late Philip Seymour Hoffman again delivering an exceptional performance, here as a rogue German agent determined to stamp out terrorism. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jul 15, 2014
20% Affluenza (2014) "Handsome-looking but all-too-familiar drama about wealthy Long Island teens with too much money and time on their hands makes no inroads into the adolescent angst that afflicts the silver-spoon set. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jul 10, 2014
83% Begin Again (2014) "Familiar contemporary spin on the "Let's make it in the music biz" sub-genre benefits from an adoring abundance of downtown New York locations and another committed performance from Mark Ruffalo as a seriously distressed former label big shot. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jun 25, 2014
98% A Summer's Tale (2014) "The seasons, summer especially, are so atmospheric and weighted with many good associations and memories, all of which makes A Summer's Tale a nice cinematic diversion for any season. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jun 19, 2014
76% The Last Sentence (2014) "Intimate and handsomely designed portrait of a real-life crusading anti-Hitler journalist in Sweden during the war years engages on several levels even as it sacrifices a better defined political and historic backdrop. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jun 19, 2014
48% Le Chef (2014) "It's a familiar, light-as-soufflĂ© tale that is feel-good cinema to the max and as traditional as the food it touts. " ‐ Film Journal International
