6% The Choice (2016) "Directed by Ross Katz and filmed like an ad for erectile-dysfunction medication, The Choice is almost repellently synthetic. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Feb 4, 2016
5% Martyrs (2016) "Shatteringly stupid and repulsively misogynistic, "Martyrs" mashes revenge, torture and the supernatural into one solid, quasi-religious lump. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 21, 2016
43% Intruders (2016) ""Intruders," a distasteful thriller with a bludgeoning sensibility and little common sense, turns a cozy family home into a clockwork house of horrors. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 14, 2016
86% Sweaty Betty (2016) "Defiantly amateurish yet never less than engaging, "Sweaty Betty" is a true oddity. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 7, 2016
17% Other People's Children (2015) ""Other People's Children" desperately wants to take a deep dive into a young woman's pain and the solace of artistic expression. For that to happen, though, would require much better actors and a much smarter script. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 31, 2015
No Score Yet The Winding Stream (2015) "Rhythmically blending vintage recordings and live performances, "The Winding Stream" exudes a quirky warmth that counters its PBS-pledge-drive aura. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 15, 2015
No Score Yet Sunday Ball (2015) "A happy marriage of rudimentary conditions and highly sophisticated filmmaking, Eryk Rocha's passionate documentary "Sunday Ball" dives into an amateur soccer game in the Brazilian slums and barely comes up for air. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 10, 2015
60% My Friend Victoria (Mon amie Victoria) (2015) "As drifting and dreamy as its searching heroine, "My Friend Victoria" takes a graceful but unsatisfying stroll through the life and longings of a young black woman in contemporary Paris. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 3, 2015
95% Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) "Mr. Jones fashions an unfaltering encomium that's entirely free of the highfalutin monologues that might deter noncinephiles. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 1, 2015
89% Stink! (2015) "A heartfelt documentary about the chemical industry's aggressive efforts to conceal the thousands of potentially toxic ingredients contained in everyday products. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 26, 2015
60% The Summer Of Sangaile (2015) "Dreamy and delicate, trite and oh so earnest, "The Summer of Sangaile" presents a soft-core frolic in teenage Sapphic bliss with the solemnity of a world-shattering event. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 19, 2015
50% #Horror (2015) "For all its bursts of violence and descending-guillotine sound effects, "#Horror" feels driven more by social commentary than by outright terror. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 19, 2015
23% Heist (2015) "Whatever its flaws, "Heist" is to be commended for repeatedly finding ways to distract us from them. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 12, 2015
79% Entertainment (2015) "I left this barbed portrait of a cracking-up comic with more than a little respect for its fearless director, Rick Alverson, and his trusting star, Gregg Turkington. You can't deny that they're a match made in heaven. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 12, 2015
100% Of Men And War (2015) "Filmed almost entirely inside the Pathway Home in California, a residential therapy center for veterans, this devastatingly raw documentary shows that for some the fighting may stop, but the suffering continues. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 6, 2015
72% The Hallow (The Woods) (2015) "John Nolan's old-school effects are wicked good, and Martijn van Broekhuizen's mossy photography is pleasingly sinister. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 5, 2015
42% Love (2015) "As if all its artistic energy had been gobbled up by the fornication, "Love" has nothing left with which to build its characters or set them in motion. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 29, 2015

Posted Oct 22, 2015
88% Bone Tomahawk (2015) "A witty fusion of western, horror and comedy that gallops to its own beat. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 22, 2015

Posted Oct 22, 2015
91% In My Father's House (2015) "Watching Mr. Tillman as he cheerfully embraces sobriety to please his son, and is rebuffed by his former street pals for doing so, we see a poignant meditation on how our expectations of loved ones can become a burden that not everyone can carry. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 8, 2015
No Score Yet A Woman Like Me "The rambling, uncertain tone engendered by Ms. Sichel's striving to align her Buddhist beliefs with the harsh realities of terminal illness also weakens her story's gravitational pull. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 8, 2015
79% Northern Soul (2015) "Funny and feisty, gritty and sometimes grim, this first feature from the photographer Elaine Constantine delivers a sweaty snapshot of a very specific time and place. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 1, 2015

Posted Oct 1, 2015

Posted Oct 1, 2015
96% #DEL Do Not Merge "Shockingly funny, weirdly touching ... " ‐ New York Times
Posted Sep 25, 2015
12% Pay the Ghost (2015) "Sludgy greens and smudged blacks assault the eyes, and crashing sound cues accompany every scare - dead giveaways of a director, Uli Edel, who trusts neither his audience nor his images. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Sep 25, 2015
77% Racing Extinction (2015) "If you've ever wondered what a breaking heart sounds like, it's right here in the futile warble of the last male of a species of songbird, singing for a mate that will never come. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Sep 17, 2015
83% Goodnight Mommy (2015) "Brahms's "Cradle Song" might play at the beginning, but that doesn't mean anyone here has the slightest chance of sleeping. " ‐ New York Times

Posted Aug 27, 2015
74% 7 Chinese Brothers (2015) "Considering how aimless its screenplay, how lost its hero and how unglamorous its setting, Bob Byington's "7 Chinese Brothers" is remarkably appealing. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 27, 2015

Posted Aug 20, 2015
8% Hitman: Agent 47 (2015) "Dumb as dirt and just as generic, "Hitman: Agent 47" trades brains for bullets and characters for windup toys. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 20, 2015
87% Guidance (2015) "Pursuing his character's self-destructive, often tasteless agenda, Mr. Mills (drawing on his own experiences and doing triple duty as the director and screenwriter) gives a performance of rancid single-mindedness. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 20, 2015
89% Meru (2015) "Thankfully free of the usual triumph-of-the-will score, "Meru" is an ultrasmooth blend of conventional documentary techniques - the talking-head interview; the back-in-the-day photograph - and uncommon ambition. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 13, 2015
86% Assassination (2015) "Brimming with characters - many in near-identical military garb - and bristling with double crosses, this unnecessarily lengthy homage to resistance chooses breadth over depth at every turn. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 6, 2015
68% Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet (2015) "This collection of eight mini-sermons falls flat. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 6, 2015
15% Jenny's Wedding (2015) "One of the many irritants in this trite, well-intentioned lecture on tolerance: The audience is always several moves ahead of the script. " ‐ New York Times

Posted Jul 23, 2015

Posted Jul 20, 2015
No Score Yet Northern Limit Line (2015) "This jingoistic war-at-sea movie, redeemed by neither narrative momentum nor fully formed characters, will test the patience of the most ardent military fanatic. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 17, 2015
73% What We Did on Our Holiday (2015) "A damp-eyed comedy whose banal title isn't the only thing needing improvement. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 9, 2015
51% Escobar: Paradise Lost (2015) "Nick might usurp most of the screen time, but it's Mr. Del Toro, face flickering from benevolent to vicious and body heaving with literal and symbolic weight, who seizes the film. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 25, 2015
81% Batkid Begins (2015) "Marveling without questioning, the movie is content to package the phenomenon and coast on its feel-good wave. Yet, somewhere around the midpoint, I began to wonder who was most thrilled by all this fuss. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 25, 2015
82% Eden (2015) "Perceptive and compassionate, "Eden" recognizes how the thrill of artistic freedom can curdle in the heat of the marketplace and the demands of daily life. Yet the movie's refusal to foster regret, or have Paul repudiate his passion, is telling. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 19, 2015
