48/100 94% The Unloved (2009) " The Unloved is a promising debut for director Morton, but it's sometimes too sensitive where it should be insightful." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 18, 2010
82/100 49% Antichrist (2009) " By turns provocative, repulsive and downright elemental, it churns with such a surfeit of unresolved energy that it's likely to leave viewers dazed and confused by the end of its assault." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Sep 5, 2009
39/100 94% The Damned United (2009) " It devolves into a morass of bitterness, losing even the rooting interest in the underdog that makes the formulaic structure of most sports films forgivable." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Sep 5, 2009
34/100 89% World's Greatest Dad (2009) " Goldthwait's movie tries so desperately to be edgy that it's hard not to laugh at it." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Sep 5, 2009
71/100 —— House That Screamed (2000) " Taken as a whole, the sinister and accomplished The House That Screamed is something of a classic of European horror." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Sep 5, 2009
70/100 —— Men on the Mountain (2007) " By exhibiting a great deal of sympathy and a considerable amount of cinematic skill, Szots relays the mores and customs of the people he observes." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Sep 5, 2009
82/100 —— Naked Childhood (L'Enfance nue) (1969) " It conceives of characters not in the terms of the typical cinematic narrative, but rather as spontaneous beings, seemingly unpredictable even to themselves." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Aug 28, 2009
63/100 90% Hausu (House) (1977) " All the more awesome for being so totally inexplicable, Hausu may not be ultimately be classifiable as a "good" movie, but it's certainly one that must be seen to be believed." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Aug 28, 2009
83/100 100% Black God, White Devil (Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol) " It almost immediately launches into a nightmarish journey of violence and hopelessness, confronting us with an abstract yet uncomfortable vision of human struggle." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Aug 9, 2009
80/100 100% Gentleman Jim (1942) " Walsh trusts his viewers to value ability and wit over humility and pathos, resulting in one of the most roundly entertaining of all sports films." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Aug 9, 2009
74/100 80% The Small Back Room (Hour of Glory) (1952) " The Small Back Room is too good to be regarded as the curio that most currently see it as." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Aug 9, 2009
53/100 —— The Wedding Night (1935) " While there is a mild confusion about whether ingénue Sten is mean to be a new Lombard or a new Garbo, the mixture serves the script's needs." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Aug 7, 2009
88/100 100% Late Spring (1949) " An early indicator of Ozu's late-career greatness, his remarkably subtle family drama Late Spring finds him at his expressive peak." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Aug 4, 2009
80/100 55% Martyrs (2008) " Perhaps more than any other horror film, Martyrs demonstrates the range of the genre's capabilities to find ways to excite, provoke, and disturb us." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 31, 2009
64/100 50% Mammoth (Mammut) (2009) " It's an easy movie to snipe at, but its quest for authenticity, even in its most affluent characters, is honorable." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 24, 2009
92/100 100% Vampyr - Der Traum des Allan Grey (1932) " Vampyr might not be much of a vampire movie, but it's one hell of a horror movie. It creates a sense of unease that few films can compete with, casting viewers into a realm where meanings are elusive and terror lies in every shadow." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 23, 2009
79/100 85% Une femme mariée: Suite de fragments d'un film tourné en 1964 (A Married Woman) (1964) " ...one of Godard's most approachable, conventionally plotted movies. It merges the director's interest in social constructs with a curiosity about individual emotions often obscured in his work." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 22, 2009
63/100 48% Ong Bak 2 (2009) " An effort that handily trumps the first in every respect, Ong-Bak 2 further cements Tony Jaa's status as one of the era's key action stars." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 20, 2009
78/100 88% Le Jour se lève (Daybreak) (2009) " Set convincingly on the streets and in the tenements, every frame here feels lived in." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 19, 2009
44/100 86% 500 Days of Summer (2009) " Every moment of this sub-Annie Hall routine confounds not only audience expectation of a balanced feminine perspective but the very notion of romance itself." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 19, 2009
54/100 —— Devil's Daughter " In its best moments The Devil's Daughter achieves an authenticity that cannot be denied." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 15, 2009
59/100 —— Prey (Alien Prey) (2004) " Starting out as a seemingly predictable creature feature, Prey soon twists expectations, morphing to become a most unlikely chamber drama." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 15, 2009
72/100 —— A l'aventure (2009) " The tenderness that À L'aventure discovers as it stares into the void might be its most radical gesture of all." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 14, 2009
62/100 100% Paris Is Burning (1990) " Livingston is smart enough to realize that her subjects are best equipped to explain themselves." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 10, 2009
50/100 76% The Young Victoria (2009) " [It] seems rather quaint, resulting in a movie that is well-meaning, and certainly well-mounted, but somewhat devoid of real excitement." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 9, 2009
60/100 —— Header (2009) " In its bravado and its commitment to its own perversity, it throws down a gauntlet at the rest of the genre. Make no mistake, when it comes to sheer shock value, it will be tough for other horror films to trump Header." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 8, 2009
95/100 92% Dr. Mabuse the Gambler (Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler - Ein Bild der Zeit) (Dr. Mabuse, King of Crime) (1922) " One of the silent era's best and most exciting epics, the hyper-modern Dr. Mabuse, The Gambler has scarcely aged a day in nearly ninety years." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 7, 2009
65/100 78% Mum & Dad (2008) " There's not much to Mum & Dad, besides what needs to be there to achieve grisly effectiveness. What is most disturbing about it is the way that it captures and distorts the very dynamics that exist in any family." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 6, 2009
47/100 68% Public Enemies (2009) " Public Enemies traffics in the accumulation of detail at the expense of a big picture." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jul 6, 2009
33/100 19% Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) " One can't tell if it's inspired in its attempts to find something that will draw us in or just colossally sloppy." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 30, 2009
72/100 77% Personal Best (1982) " Endowed with remarkable performances, superb photography, and a clear vision of what matters to its characters, Personal Best is an underappreciated gem in a genre full of filler." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 27, 2009
25/100 67% Away We Go (2009) " It explains that the world is broken and dares you to agree that it's honest. It promises engagement, but delivers only retrenchment." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 24, 2009
66/100 93% L'Heure d'été (Summer Hours) (2009) " Summer Hours is undeniably in touch with the way we live, eminently respectable, and a tad forced." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 24, 2009
57/100 95% Star Trek (2009) " [It] broadens the appeal of its cult property, turning what was once strictly nerd fodder into a shaggy dog action movie." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 24, 2009
39/100 81% Okuribito (Departures) (2009) " Such modestly crafted moral tales sometimes manage win the audience over, but here the tone wavers too much for sincerity to be felt." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 24, 2009
54/100 91% The Nanny (1965) " The Nanny is not especially ambitious, so one must settle for the small pleasures and chills that it offers." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 24, 2009
62/100 83% Lake Tahoe (2008) " Lake Tahoe confirms Embicke as a promising young talent, but simultaneously raises some worries that he's only able to offer a small, singular form of pleasure." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 24, 2009
27/100 76% Bronson (2009) " A determinedly ugly movie, as brutish in its delivery as its subject is brutish in character, Bronson fails to offer meaningful insight into the life of a singularly idiotic individual." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 18, 2009
48/100 89% Moon (2009) " Jones is a methodical filmmaker, and he conveys his plot without mucking it up too terribly, but he's also dull." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 15, 2009
55/100 71% Tetro (2009) " For viewers who are willing to accept the sheer adolescence of Coppola's thematic obsessions and stylistic approach, Tetro shows plenty of questionably placed inspiration." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 14, 2009
53/100 44% The Limits of Control (2009) " Jim Jarmusch takes no prisoners, especially from his audience, in his quest for art house glory." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 13, 2009
66/100 44% The Proposal (2009) " It is about as pleasing a star-driven comedy as one could reasonably expect to open in wide release during the dog days of summer." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Jun 13, 2009
63/100 79% The Girl on the Train (La Fille du RER) (2010) " What results is an irreducible and complex portrait of the drama that is modern life. Téchiné, much to his credit, has transformed here a thoughtless action into something that is capable of making the mind reel with implication." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Mar 11, 2009
66/100 100% Bad Biology (2008) " At once tragically wounded and gloriously shameless, Bad Biology is a must-see for a certain, self-selecting breed of filmgoer." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Mar 11, 2009
40/100 40% Otto; or Up with Dead People (2008) " Concessions to the audience's expectations certainly make Otto a more palatable viewing experience, but they also make it seem less dangerous." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Feb 15, 2009
63/100 100% A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1945) " Rarely has the dream factory lavished such skill on such destitution and such insistence that people are not really that changeable in nature." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Feb 15, 2009
84/100 75% Julia (2009) " Julia is at once a marvel of screen acting, an unthinkably black comedy, and one of the few truly nail-biting suspense films to emerge this decade." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Feb 15, 2009
70/100 89% Sisters of the Gion (Gion no shimai) (1936) " It is a brief movie, which is impressive considering how much of Japanese culture its critique assults, but it must be conceded that it loses a little of its potential richness as a result." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Feb 15, 2009
82/100 100% Osaka Elegy (Woman of Osaka) (Naniwa erejî) (1976) " By the end of Osaka Elegy, Ayoko's situation warrants nothing less than a universal call for empathy." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Feb 15, 2009
77/100 100% My Name is Julia Ross (1945) " Director Lewis, like his script, works to keep us unbalanced." — MovieMartyr.com
Posted Feb 15, 2009
62/100 83% The Uninvited (1944) " Decidedly more spooky than scary." — MovieMartyr.com
