91% Michael Jackson's Journey From Motown to Off the Wall "This bouncily entertaining doc may boast only a notch more formal ambition than a very well-assembled "Behind the Music" special, but is no less essential than Lee's first MJ opus, the excellent "Bad 25." " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 5, 2016
43% Looking for Grace "Even as its tone circles back to aching naturalism, there's something tenuous about the pic's tender resolution -- not to mention a teasing sense that more interesting untold stories might lie on the untold fringes. " ‐ Variety

Posted Jan 27, 2016

Posted Dec 8, 2015

Posted Nov 6, 2015
83% 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

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 29% 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
11% 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

Posted Oct 5, 2015
88% 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
12% 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
24% Every Thing Will Be Fine (2015) "Tone-deaf and structurally haphazard. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 16, 2015

Posted Sep 15, 2015
3/5 65% Louder Than Bombs (2016) "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
81% 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
64% The Program (2016) "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
94% 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 (2016) "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
62% 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
