2/4 48% I Origins (2014) " Makes a too obvious attempt to repeat [Cahill's] previous effort, wanting to be spooky and ending up soggy." — Newsday
Posted Jul 24, 2014
2/4 63% Alive Inside (2014) " The movie hovers between diatribe and misplaced diplomacy. At certain times, you want to ask Rossato-Bennett "What's the problem?"" — Newsday
Posted Jul 24, 2014
2% Getaway (2013) " It's all you can do not to laugh. Oh, go ahead. But be forewarned that there are many miles to go before we get to the end and it will feel like an eternity before any of it makes sense." — Wall Street Journal
Posted Jul 22, 2014
2/4 39% Wish I Was Here (2014) " What's it about? Everything and nothing. Seriously: If wishes were horses, one would have walked into the movie and told us what exactly Braff thought was going on." — Newsday
Posted Jul 17, 2014
3.5/4 89% Siddharth (2014) " Part of what makes "Siddharth" so troubling and moving is the difficulty we have situating our sympathies." — Newsday
Posted Jul 17, 2014
3.5/4 97% A Summer's Tale (2014) " For all his seeming facility with the opposite sex, Gaspard is really a romantic idiot. And aren't we all, Rohmer suggests." — Newsday
Posted Jul 10, 2014
99% A Hard Day's Night (1964) " The results remain pop perfection." — Wall Street Journal
Posted Jul 7, 2014
91% Venus in Fur (2014) " The couple's movie-long pas de deux, during which time a reversal of roles takes place and the inner Thomas is exposed to the world (us), is staged with delicious irony and ingenuity by Mr. Polanski" — Wall Street Journal
Posted Jul 7, 2014
23% Tammy (2014) " The movie's principal intention is to make you laugh at a loser, and revel in scenes from which polite people would instinctively turn away." — Wall Street Journal
Posted Jul 7, 2014
49% Earth to Echo (2014) " Unlike the very successful Spanish horror thriller [Rec] or even the nausea-inducing Cloverfield, which Echo more closely resembles, this film doesn't maintain a consistent point of view or any logic about what's on screen." — Wall Street Journal
Posted Jul 7, 2014
3.5/4 94% Snowpiercer (2014) " A rococo exercise in mayhem, boldfaced allegory and ramped-up chaos. It's a summer movie with a social conscience." — Newsday
Posted Jul 2, 2014
2/4 50% Le Chef (2014) " "Le Chef" is vaguely reassuring proof that the French can make comedies as silly as ours -- which, of course, they do, though the films usually don't make it onto the menu here." — Newsday
Posted Jun 26, 2014
A 100% Point and Shoot " Via his subject's idiosyncracies... Curry starts to weave a subtle, but nonetheless eloquent critique not just of one man's compulsions, but a culture's. " — indieWIRE
Posted Jun 23, 2014
2.5/4 87% Obvious Child (2014) " Virtue and vulgarity fight to a draw via a film that should put the vivacious Jenny Slate and director Gillian Robespierre on everyone's indie radar." — Newsday
Posted Jun 19, 2014
3.5/4 86% Violette (2014) " Frank, harsh, emotionally harrowing and, much like its subject, difficult." — Newsday
Posted Jun 19, 2014
3.5/4 97% We Are the Best! (2014) " It's a title that makes quite a statement. Few viewers will be inclined to argue." — Newsday
Posted Jun 12, 2014
3/4 55% The Signal (2014) " Amid all the self-conscious virtuosity, certain things are right." — Newsday
Posted Jun 12, 2014
97% Orange is the New Black: Season 2 (TV, 2014) " The new [season] can be summed up by Natasha Lyonne's [line] upon Piper's return to Litchfield. "Glad to see you evolving... and getting past the whole 'I'm-the-star-of-my-own-movie-and-everyone-else's' complex." But she is evolving. And so is the show. " — Wall Street Journal
Posted Jun 6, 2014
73% Murder in the First: Season 1 " Among the things one notices about the new Murder in the First is that it's not in his customary New York or Los Angeles but San Francisco and, unlike that city, is as flat as a pancake. " — Wall Street Journal
Posted Jun 6, 2014
44% Power: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Everyone seems to be imitating someone they saw in another gangster movie. It would be funny, if it weren't quite so tedious. " — Wall Street Journal
Posted Jun 6, 2014
A- 88% Elena (2014) " Costa may not be detail-oriented when it comes to the minutiae of her sister's biography, but when it comes to creating emotional portraiture, she's exhaustive." — indieWIRE
Posted Jun 5, 2014

Posted May 29, 2014
2.5/4 82% Fed Up (2014) " Exposé against America's nutritional war on itself is informative, passionate, slightly regurgitated." — Newsday
Posted May 22, 2014
3.5/4 88% Nun va Goldoon (A Moment of Innocence) (Bread and Flower) (1999) " A breathtaking cross-fertilization of drama and fact." — Newsday
Posted May 20, 2014
4/4 94% Ida (2014) " Likely to remain the best movie of the year." — Newsday
Posted May 15, 2014
2.5/4 83% Belle (2014) " One occasionally wishes Asante had chosen a more rigorous course of action with her period piece, but she perhaps also knows that sugar is more seductive than sermons." — Newsday
Posted May 8, 2014
94% Ida (2014) " Ida stings, but in wonderfully alarming ways." — America Magazine
Posted May 7, 2014
3/4 66% The German Doctor (2014) " Amid the melodrama is a resonant, highly moral kind of horror movie." — Newsday
Posted May 1, 2014

Posted Apr 28, 2014
41% Divergent (2014) " Dramatically, Divergent wanders, but over rich philosophical soil." — America Magazine
Posted Apr 28, 2014
32% The Monuments Men (2014) " It is a little difficult to generate dramatic tension about an art-salvage project when there is a world war going on around it." — America Magazine
Posted Apr 28, 2014
77% Noah (2014) " It ranges far, wide and clumsily in expanding its slender source material, but Noah aches with aspiration, its sincerity and ambition virtually leaping off the screen." — America Magazine
Posted Apr 28, 2014
2/4 44% Walking With The Enemy (2014) " The film is so emotionally obvious and awkwardly handled that it doesn't deserve much consideration as a political or historical statement ..." — Newsday
Posted Apr 24, 2014

Posted Apr 24, 2014

Posted Apr 24, 2014

Posted Apr 24, 2014
4/4 84% The Unknown Known (2014) " Morris doesn't "break" Rumsfeld, as some think he did McNamara. He has held a mirror up to the man, and found no reflection. The viewer simply has to realize that what's important is what's not there." — Newsday
Posted Apr 11, 2014
100% Blue Blood " One of the better sports movies in recent memory, Blue Blood is a counteragent to the era of the steroid-shooting superhero, a film that puts athletics back in perspective, and on a human scale." — Variety
Posted Apr 7, 2014
3/4 95% Finding Vivian Maier (2014) " Directors John Maloof and Charlie Siskel do a lot with what they have -- but they also had a lot to work with." — Newsday
Posted Apr 3, 2014
3.5/4 83% Rob the Mob (2014) " As Tommy and Rosie, Pitt and Arianda are just the right kind of nuts, the right kind of dumb, the right kind of desperate and the right kind of in love to make it all go down like pie." — Newsday
Posted Apr 3, 2014
3/4 96% The Lunchbox (2014) " Warm, and warmly predictable." — Newsday
Posted Mar 27, 2014
3/4 47% Blood Ties (2014) " Intriguing performances, and a sense of '70s American cinema that seems to have been preserved in a lava lamp." — Newsday
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/4 93% Child's Pose (2014) " Perversely engrossing thanks to Gheorghiu's performance as the queen of denial." — Newsday
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3.5/4 83% On My Way (2014) " A handsome vehicle for Denueve, who drives it with elegant sanfroid." — Newsday
Posted Mar 20, 2014
2.5/4 82% Grand Piano (2014) " Preposterous, but much anxious fun." — Newsday
Posted Mar 20, 2014
2/4 42% The Face of Love (2014) " A weak-tea version of "Vertigo" in which contrivances abound." — Newsday
Posted Mar 13, 2014
2/4 44% The Art of the Steal (2014) " Snappy, clever, broadly comedic and too obvious for words, of which there are many." — Newsday
Posted Mar 13, 2014
4/4 97% The Last of the Unjust (2014) " Murmelstein addresses Lanzmann's skepticism and questions with earnestness, passion and -- as if the rest of it wasn't troubling enough -- what seems like total recall." — Newsday
Posted Mar 6, 2014
3.5/4 77% Bethlehem (2014) " "Bethlehem" is about the Arab-Israeli struggle, naturally, but finds its real emotional heat in the internecine conflicts that keep an insurgency raging and a people off-balance." — Newsday
Posted Mar 6, 2014
4/4 91% Omar (2014) " "Omar" is a real thriller, a snake pit of plot twists, in which the perspectives shift, destinations change and the moral universe spins and sways." — Newsday
