Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
80% Viva (2016) ""Viva" appealingly makes up for a coy approach with gutsy, grabby follow-through on the high notes. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 29, 2016
18% Ratchet & Clank (2016) "There's just enough blaring sound and color to this knowingly silly tale of interplanetary derring-do to adequately offset its impersonal corporate sheen. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 28, 2016
73% Sworn Virgin (Vergine giurata) (2016) "Bispuri and co-writer Francesca Manieri don't pass explicit judgment on a custom born out of more problematically ingrained sexism; the script's perspective is more anthropological than political. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 19, 2016
40% Bombay Velvet (2015) "It's the high-gloss realization of that world that affords many of the pic's most delicious pleasures. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 19, 2016
58% Bastille Day "It's Watkins' lean, keen instinct for choreographing and cutting action set pieces that keeps "Bastille Day" afloat. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 19, 2016
80% LoveTrue "To what degree these narratives highlight universalities or distinct, disparate facets of love is in the eye of the beholder; either way, Har'el saturated sensory technique is a seduction in itself. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 19, 2016
86% The Chosen Ones (Las elegidas) "[The Chosen Ones,] while a little one-note in its dramatic development, is as hard to shake as it is to watch. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 18, 2016
100% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) "An audience picture first and foremost: one wholly sympathetic to its eponymous subject's delusional drive to delight crowds with or without the requisite artistry. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 13, 2016
86% Mammal "As delicately drawn by Daly and co-writer Glenn Montgomery, the nervous, mutually tip-toed bond that reveals itself between Margaret and Joe runs counter to the luridly melodramatic lines threatened by the premise. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 11, 2016
19% The Adderall Diaries (2016) "With its heavy image processing and injudicious use of slo-mo, there's a certain student-film quality to The Adderall Diaries that neither masters nor disciplines the complex, eccentric sprawl of the source material. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 5, 2016
17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "Doubled-up diva-tude, however, can't ignite a rhythmically flat, seemingly committee-helmed franchise outing that never decides on its dramatic center. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 4, 2016
78% Chevalier (2016) "It's an expertly executed tease. " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 15, 2016
90% Emelie (2016) "A familiarly premised but stringently executed home-invasion chiller that rarely goes for the straight-up scare when a more insidious one will do. " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 4, 2016
24% London Has Fallen (2016) "Cruddily crafted, grimacingly performed and effortlessly racist, this sloppy dish of Gruel Britannia may just go down well enough to green-light a continuing franchise of global destruction. World capitals quiver. " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 2, 2016
No Score Yet Sivas "[Sivas] is distinguished by its muscular technical brio and rich, integral sense of place. As storytelling, however, it's less rewarding, taking rather too long to get into gear and abruptly ending at its most critical point of conflict. " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 1, 2016
72% Valley Of Love (2016) "There are gentle rewards to be gained from the initially brittle, gradually tender rapport between two actors of contrasting greatness. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 29, 2016
100% 2016 Oscar Nominated Shorts - Animated (2016) "Alike in formal spryness if nothing else, the five form one of the category's most sophisticated lineups in recent memory. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 27, 2016
60% The Commune (Kollektivet) "Aims for a bittersweet release of feeling that lands, at its most misjudged points, closer to emotional sadism. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 23, 2016
37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) "A smutty but strained spy spoof in which most of the human-based comedy stays comparatively flaccid. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 22, 2016
80% Disorder (Maryland) "A fine-cut tension exercise that eventually ignites into a full-blown home-invasion thriller. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 19, 2016
38% Alone in Berlin "Finally cushions its harshest emotional blows, though Brendan Gleeson's deeply sad, stoic dignity in the lead cuts through some of the padding. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 15, 2016
63% A Quiet Passion "What sets the film drastically off-balance is its contrastingly finicky impulse to paint Dickinson as one of the rapier wits of her generation. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 15, 2016
4/5 83% Chronic "A sensitive, slow-developing bruise of a film. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 15, 2016
No Score Yet Shepherds and Butchers "Oliver Schmitz, one of South Africa's essential directors, delivers a mix of emotional acuity and overkill with this death penalty drama. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 14, 2016
100% Things to Come (L'avenir) "Mia Hansen-Love and Isabelle Huppert prove a dream partnership in the director's gorgeous, heart-cradling post-divorce drama. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 14, 2016
83% Bridgend (2016) "An unimaginable reality is brought to the brink of clarity -- only to plunge right back into a psychological abyss -- in Danish helmer Jeppe Ronde's potent, pain-ridden Bridgend. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 9, 2016
No Score Yet Suited "Slickly upbeat as it guides six contrasting clients through the measuring and fitting process, frosh helmer Benjamin's film nonetheless gleans enough pointed personal testimonies along the way to add human weight to its makeover-TV format. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 9, 2016
92% 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 Feb 4, 2016
71% The Eyes of My Mother "Nicolas Pesce's impressive, highly original horror fable is the stuff of very beautiful nightmares. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 4, 2016
91% Kate Plays Christine "Robert Greene's performance-based documentary on Christine Chubbuck is an ingenious, knowingly frustrating provocation. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 30, 2016
70% Becoming Mike Nichols "For a documentary on his work to clock in at just 72 minutes doesn't seem fitting in any sense. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 29, 2016

Posted Jan 27, 2016
67% Complete Unknown "If it all finally amounts to a slightly academic anatomy of an idea, it's a killer idea all the same. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 26, 2016
55% The Hollars (2016) "The emotional responses elicited here go about as deep as the "awwws" and "ahhhs" of a live studio audience at a network sitcom taping. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 26, 2016
97% Sing Street (2016) "Lightning strikes thrice as Irish writer-director John Carney's let's-make-a-band formula once more yields winning results. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 25, 2016
100% Certain Women "Kelly Reichardt's wonderful triptych of female character studies confirms her status as the quietest of great American filmmakers. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 25, 2016

Posted Jan 24, 2016

Posted Jan 23, 2016
No Score Yet Sophie and the Rising Sun "Maggie Greenwald's first adult-oriented feature since 'Songcatcher' is an affecting, rose-scented study of small-town prejudice and female friendship. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 23, 2016

Posted Jan 22, 2016
59% Sisters (2015) "It's heartening to see energetic supporting players accommodated so generously in a vehicle otherwise decisively steered by its two smashing leads, whose ping-ponging chemistry doesn't drop for a minute. " ‐ Variety
Posted Dec 11, 2015
90% Right Now, Wrong Then (2016) "The amiably ambling result is unlikely to shift the divide between Hong's enchanted admirers and impatient skeptics. " ‐ Variety
Posted Dec 9, 2015
83% Stinking Heaven "Those who stick out its short-and-sour duration, however, will note a deepening timbre in Silver's already distinctive storytelling voice, as he deftly balances curdled comedy with candid humanism. " ‐ Variety
Posted Dec 8, 2015
No Score Yet Les démons (The Demons) "Fevered imagination and nightmarish reality brush shoulders to disconcerting effect in The Demons, Quebecois filmmaker Philippe Lesage's extraordinary examination of childhood fears festering in broad suburban daylight. " ‐ Variety
Posted Dec 7, 2015
100% Democrats (2015) "The quasi-Kafkaesque administration holding Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe's corrupt dictatorship in place finally gets the first-hand scrutiny it merits in Camilla Nielsson's riveting documentary Democrats. " ‐ Variety
