4/5 89% Big Hero 6 (2014) " Hall and Williams have given us one of the rare family films that can fairly boast of having it all: humor, heart and huggability. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Nov 5, 2014
2/5 28% Elsa & Fred (2014) " Why do so many filmmakers think "Old People Fall in Love" is the only concept they need? " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted Nov 5, 2014
3/5 95% Nightcrawler (2014) " No matter how extreme or unlikely the scenario, we want to know how Lou will handle it. Gyllenhaal makes this antihero funny, scary and fearlessly strange. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Oct 30, 2014
2/5 41% Horns (2014) " Gauzily romantic flashbacks, ultradark comedy and religious iconography are all jumbled together, without sharpening into focus. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Oct 29, 2014
3/5 72% Point and Shoot (2014) " "Point and Shoot" is a compelling account of an ordinary guy who transformed himself through extraordinary circumstance. " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted Oct 23, 2014
4/5 98% Citizenfour (2014) " A fascinating film that's also a crucial social document. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Oct 22, 2014
3/5 69% Laggies (2014) " Individual scenes are consistently entertaining and often even poignant. But the script never digs beneath the surface of any scenario, in strong contrast to Shelton's wonderful earlier films. " ‐ New York Daily News

3/5 84% Listen Up Philip (2014) " So much cynicism might be unbearable were it not for the sure hand of director Perry. He, along with narrator Eric Bogosian, approaches the intellectually brilliant, emotionally empty antihero with bemusement. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Oct 15, 2014
3/5 78% Kill the Messenger (2014) " If this movie is any guide, Webb's later years deserve a film of their own. We ought to know more about this fascinating character. And we ought to see more of the fully engaged actor playing him. " ‐ New York Daily News

1/5 0% Kite (2014) " Ziman pretends to be empowering his young heroine by putting a gun in her hand and tough words in her mouth. But there's something deeply discomforting about his camera's fetishistic leering. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Oct 8, 2014
2/5 40% You're Not You (2014) " Reflecting its wishy-washy title, "You're Not You" is the sort of movie that's not good enough to embrace, but not quite bad enough to dismiss. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Oct 8, 2014
2/5 31% Autómata (2014) " Antonio Banderas does work hard to keep us engaged in this convoluted sci-fi thriller about rebellious robots. After an hour, though, you'll wonder why you didn't just stay home to watch "Blade Runner" again. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Oct 8, 2014
86% The Blue Room (2014) " The mystery is pretty low-key and the resolution somewhat disappointing. But Amalric is mesmerizing and the film's taut, chilly tone leaves us unnerved. " ‐ New York Daily News

2/5 34% Two Night Stand (2014) " Teller is, by far, the best thing about this easygoing, stubbornly generic independent romance from Max Nichols. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 24, 2014

3/5 39% Tusk (2014) " Like many movies made by Kevin Smith, the director of "Clerks" and "Cop Out," his gothic horror comedy "Tusk" is alternately amusing, appalling and frustrating. It's also unique. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 18, 2014
59% My Old Lady (2014) " This is a promising premise and the cast is certainly game. But it's as if the actors are emoting into a canyon - or, more accurately, a narrow hallway. " ‐ New York Daily News

4/5 62% The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (2014) " Watching these lost characters stumbling through life's challenges, it becomes clear that the true subject of Benson's film(s) isn't rare or extraordinary heartbreak. It's the universal confusion of ordinary adulthood. " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted Aug 27, 2014
2/5 65% Life Of Crime (2014) " Schechter based "Life of Crime" on Elmore Leonard's novel "The Switch." And though the movie is not a disaster, his unfocused effort does sit pretty low on the list of Leonard adaptations. " ‐ New York Daily News
