Posted Nov 16, 2015
89% Frame by Frame (2015) "The powerful and precarious position of photojournalists in modern-day Afghanistan is the subject of this sharp, soulful doc. " ‐ Variety

Posted Nov 6, 2015
3/5 84% Do I Sound Gay? (2015) "The tone is light and hopeful throughout, while allowing for the possibility of more searching investigation on the viewer's part. " ‐ This is London
Posted Nov 6, 2015
91% In the Basement (Im Keller) (2015) "Grabby and grubby in equal measure, this meticulously composed trawl through the contents of several middle-class Austrians' cellars yields more than a few startling discoveries. " ‐ Variety
Posted Nov 5, 2015
93% Sembene! (2015) "The remarkable career of Senegalese filmmaker Sembene Ousmane gets an appropriate overview in this intelligent, slightly dry doc. " ‐ Variety
Posted Nov 4, 2015
2/5 31% Under Milk Wood "[The film] has been entered for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar - good luck to them, but British cinema has been better represented. So, for that matter, has Dylan Thomas. " ‐ This is London
Posted Nov 2, 2015
13% Fathers And Daughters "Russell Crowe heads a starry, largely overqualified cast in Gabriele Muccino's treacly, time-hopping family soap opera. " ‐ Variety
Posted Oct 29, 2015
64% Spectre (2015) "A wealth of iconography - both incidental and integral - from the series' founding chapters is revived here, making "Spectre" a particular treat for 007 nerds, and a businesslike blast for everyone else. " ‐ Variety
Posted Oct 21, 2015
16% The Last Witch Hunter (2015) "Too drab to succeed even as defiantly unvirtuous trash ... stifles Diesel's rough-hewn charisma via a sludgy, impermeable oil spill of CGI effects - in the service of largely unspectacular hocus pocus. " ‐ Variety
Posted Oct 19, 2015
No Score Yet How to Win at Checkers (Every Time) "This low-key but deeply felt tale of fraternal bonds... reps a confident feature-length debut for the Texas-born Kim, who brings both non-native objectivity and a traveler's eye for geographic detail to the pic's earthy Bangkok setting. " ‐ Variety
Posted Oct 9, 2015
85% Xenia (2015) "Brashly uneven and wildly overlong, this comedy of brotherly love and outsider acceptance nonetheless boasts a spirited, audience-pleasing core. " ‐ Variety
Posted Oct 7, 2015
No Score Yet Zoom "The part-toon pic's neatly collapsing structure and pop-art flourishes ensure it's never dull. " ‐ Variety
Posted Oct 5, 2015
89% Bone Tomahawk (2015) "A gleefully grisly genre gazpacho that matches a rousing sense of Old West derring-do to a comic sensibility as dark as chewing tobacco - and at least as much of an acquired taste. " ‐ Variety
Posted Oct 2, 2015
60% The Intern (2015) "It takes all the leads' considerable combined charm to forestall the aftertaste of the pic's smug life lessons and near-comically blinkered worldview. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 21, 2015
6% Regression (2016) "This allegedly fact-based tale of Satanic suspicions in small-town Minnesota is potboiler material at best, threatening far twistier terrors than those it predictably delivers. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 19, 2015
22% Every Thing Will Be Fine (2015) "Tone-deaf and structurally haphazard. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 16, 2015
78% Sleeping Giant "Boys will be boys, yes, but Cividino doesn't romanticize them: They can be pretty toxic, too. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 15, 2015
3/5 65% Louder Than Bombs "The emotional conclusions here can be a little pat, and catharsis too easily come by. It's more cautiously sound-proofed than its title implies. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Sep 15, 2015
82% Victoria (2015) "This exhilarating tale of a winsome Spanish nightclubber who finds herself spontaneously caught up in a bank robbery... is undeniably a stunt, but one suffused with a surprising degree of grace and emotional authenticity. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 14, 2015
61% The Program "Rare is the prestige biopic that feels altogether too short, but after 102 soundly paced minutes, "The Program" retires with half a hill left to climb. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 14, 2015
100% The Lady In The Van (2015) "A grandly ornery Maggie Smith is the chief draw in this slight, innocuously enjoyable adaptation of Alan Bennett's memoir. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 12, 2015
63% Remember "Despite Christopher Plummer's poignant lead performance, Atom Egoyan fails to find form in this Nazi-tracking mystery. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 10, 2015
100% De Palma "Steered by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow, Brian De Palma holds court in a delightful, illuminating career reflection. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 8, 2015
59% Legend (2015) "Hardy's astonishing, award-caliber twin turn as the notorious Kray brothers deepens and darkens Brian Helgeland's biopic. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 3, 2015
67% The Bad Education Movie "A sequel may be far from a guaranteed prospect, but the pic does establish the elastic-faced Whitehall as a film-anchoring comic presence (and writer) for other, similarly lightweight vehicles. " ‐ Variety
Posted Aug 24, 2015
4/5 82% Mistress America (2015) "Baumbach times his choreographed comic collisions with the snap and crackle of vintage Hollywood farce, with Gerwig as the gloriously humanising centre of the chaos ... " ‐ This is London
Posted Aug 14, 2015
3/5 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "As a late-summer aperitif - suavely assembled, chilled and tinted by the sunset - this jaunty nonsense slips down smoothly enough. " ‐ This is London
Posted Aug 14, 2015
38% She's Funny That Way (2015) "Accumulates the necessary narrative chaos without ever building a full head of comic steam. " ‐ Variety
Posted Aug 14, 2015

Posted Aug 7, 2015
4/5 94% The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015) "Inventively visualised and electrified by Powley's vibrant star turn, this is mature, spirited, emotionally generous filmmaking that understands under-18s far better than innumerable insipid young adult romances. " ‐ This is London
Posted Aug 7, 2015
B+ 90% Amour Fou (2015) "From this droll premise, potentially as dark and dry as blackened toast, Hausner spins a witty, unexpectedly touching meditation on the nature of partnership and the elasticity of fate. " ‐ HitFix
Posted Aug 4, 2015
91% 99 Homes (2015) "Ensemble work is excellent across the board, with those cast as the various evictees contributing a particularly vivid gallery of one-scene performances, ranging in tone from white-hot fury to silent desolation. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jul 27, 2015
No Score Yet King Jack "Felix Thompson's Tribeca-awarded debut covers familiar coming-of-age material with sensitivity and style. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jul 20, 2015

57% An "Naomi Kawase's gentle study of life, loss and confectionery is easily the Japanese auteur's most accessible work to date. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jul 20, 2015
74% London Road "Blythe's much-celebrated verbatim technique translates in surprisingly mannered fashion to camera, while Norris' season-based visual treatment of the material cloys. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jun 8, 2015
13% Return to Sender (2015) "Rosamund Pike deserves better than this queasy exploitation pic, which plays as a belated dry run for "Gone Girl." " ‐ Variety
Posted Jun 3, 2015
96% Amy (2015) "This lengthy but immersive portrait will hit hard with viewers who regard Winehouse among the great lost voices not just of a generation, but of an entire musical genre. " ‐ Variety

Posted May 23, 2015
3/5 93% Sicario (2015) "Denis Villeneuve takes on the Mexican drug trade in this stern, robust, abandon-hope-all-ye-who-enter thriller. " ‐ Time Out
Posted May 22, 2015
91% Green Room (2016) "Characterization and emotional investment, however, are in disappointingly short supply, while crucial tension is permitted to dissipate in an anti-climactic final third. " ‐ Variety
Posted May 18, 2015
1/5 0% Sea of Trees "Resembles one of Japanese auteur Naomi Kawase's spiritualist tone poems brutally hijacked in the editing suite by M Night Shyamalan. " ‐ Time Out
Posted May 15, 2015

Posted May 11, 2015
63% MI-5 (Spooks: The Greater Good) (2015) ""Undone by sentimentality," grumbles a senior secret agent in "Spooks: The Greater Good," having been foiled when a long-favored rendezvous location proves a trap. He might as well be talking about the film itself. " ‐ Variety
Posted May 9, 2015
65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) "Elizabeth Banks makes a credible directing debut with a riotous, even more female-driven sequel to the 2012 hit. " ‐ Variety

78% A Royal Night Out (2015) "Sarah Gadon, Jack Reynor and Bel Powley charm in this brightly entertaining slice of imagined Royal Family history. " ‐ Variety
Posted May 5, 2015
76% Hyena (2015) "Johnson's filmmaking, however, takes no such short cuts, with sound, image and editing colluding to keep Hyena in a perpetual state of agitated panic. Technique often excitingly thwarts our genre expectations. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 27, 2015
60% Anesthesia "Tim Blake Nelson's latest directorial effort is a heartfelt but heavy-handed essay on human interaction and isolation. " ‐ Variety
