Posted Apr 29, 2016
71% Eva Hesse (2016) "Marcie Begleiter's intimate documentary....serves as a valuable primer about [Hesse's] life and artistic legacy. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 27, 2016
76% Elvis & Nixon (2016) "The sharply astute, satirical screenplay by Joey and Hanala Sagal and actor Cary Elwes is filled with priceless moments. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 20, 2016
No Score Yet The Witness "Seen in vintage 8mm home movies, Kitty Genovese emerges as a vibrant, exuberant young woman whose violent death tragically came to overshadow her much too brief life. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 18, 2016
80% Hostile Border (Pocha: Manifest Destiny) (2016) "Despite its promising setup, Hostile Border lacks narrative tension, with the screenplay by co-director Kaitlin McLaughlin never quite coming into dramatic focus. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Posted Apr 14, 2016
88% Havana Motor Club (2016) "It might have been more effective as a short film. Still, car aficionados, and anyone interested in the political and social changes in Cuba that will be hastened by the restored relations with the U.S., will find much to appreciate here. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 14, 2016
No Score Yet Divine Access (2016) "A sharp and funny satire about self-proclaimed spiritual gurus. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

43% Phoenix Incident "Ultimately, The Phoenix Incident is more impressive for its ingenious publicity and marketing campaigns, including fake web news sites that went viral, than the quality of the filmmaking. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 14, 2016
75% The First Monday in May (2016) "[Rossi] effectively goes behind the scenes, capturing the complicated logistics that go into the creation of the exhibition and its accompanying gala. The former element provides the film's emotionally richest moments. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Posted Apr 11, 2016
No Score Yet Inuk (2013) "The film certainly displays an undeniable verisimilitude... and its striking visuals are bone-chilling enough to make you feel the need to wear a parka, even if watching it in a nicely heated theater. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 6, 2016

60% Bleed (2016) "Reflecting influences ranging from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to Rosemary's Baby to -- well, you name it -- Bleed doesn't exactly break any new ground, stylistically or otherwise. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 29, 2016

89% Emelie (2016) " Emelie serves up satisfying B-movie scares. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 29, 2016
86% Gored (2016) "It's rather hard to feel wholly sympathetic towards the quixotic bullfighter who at one point declares, "I've never had a relationship, even with a woman, as intimate as the one I have with a bull." " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Posted Dec 7, 2015
50% Uncle Nick (2015) "Failing to live up to it anarchic convictions by adding sympathetic aspects to its central character shortly before the conclusion, Uncle Nick, much like the sorts of holiday celebrations it depicts, is ultimately too strained to be enjoyable. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Dec 7, 2015

Posted Dec 3, 2015

Posted Nov 19, 2015
