50% The Casual Vacancy: Season 1 (TV, 2015) " It's only once the series nears its end that one recognizes the odiousness of the entire enterprise -- a frivolous and maudlin vision of human frailty that's convinced of its unimpeachable nobility. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 29, 2015
C- 20% The Reconstruction Of William Zero (2015) " There's a good movie lurking in here somewhere. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 16, 2015
91% Other Space: Season 1 (TV, 2015) " The comedy is crude and sarcastic, but rarely gets tiresome because the actors play off of each other expertly, suggesting depths of feeling beneath every arched eyebrow. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 14, 2015
100% Banana: Series 1 (TV, 2015) " When the tonal clash does work, however, there's real power to it. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 14, 2015
90% Cucumber: Series 1 (TV, 2015) " There's nothing wrong with the complacency-upending discomfort Davies is going for, but it frequently feels shrill and ill-thought-out. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 14, 2015
A- 81% Dior and I (2015) " For all the seductive imagery of billowing apparel and impossibly angled high heels, Tcheng never loses sight of the people overseeing every stitch. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 9, 2015
93% Sinatra: All or Nothing at All: Season 1 (TV, 2015) " The facts of Sinatra's life are still compelling enough that the movie is rarely dull. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 6, 2015
100% Wolf Hall: Series 1 (TV, 2015) " It's gripping in the way that watching behind-the-scenes political machinations and backstabbing can be, though contrary to some early whispers, Cromwell isn't quite the same schemer as Frank Underwood on House of Cards. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 6, 2015
40% The Lizzie Borden Chronicles: Season 1 (TV, 2015) " It's hard to say what it's going for, really. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 6, 2015
No Score Yet Olympus: Season 1 (TV, 2015) " The new SyFy channel adventure series Olympus looks like "300" as shot for $300, a green screen-heavy eyesore that still manages to charm for being so devotedly shoddy. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 2, 2015
C 57% The Girl Is In Trouble (2015) " The story has plenty of possibilities, though Onah rarely manages to put his own stamp on things. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 2, 2015
33% The Dovekeepers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) " Imagine Cecil B. DeMille directing Game of Thrones on a Sharknado budget -- which honestly might be a better use of your brainpower. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 31, 2015
B 95% The Salt of the Earth (2015) " The film is, in large part, a story of an artist rediscovering his muse. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 26, 2015
No Score Yet Sin City Saints: Season 1 (TV, 2015) " The whole series can be summed up in the image of Arnold's character huffing and puffing his way through a distended chase scene in the Las Vegas desert. Everyone and everything onscreen is beyond tired. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 25, 2015
4/5 91% Amour Fou (2015) " One thing's certain: This is no swoony love story. It intoxicates all the same. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 17, 2015
50% Powers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) " Would that the commitment of these actors felt like it was in support of something worthy. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 16, 2015
18% One Big Happy: Season 1 (TV, 2015) " This jaunty half-hour comedy is merely out for easy grins and giggles-and though the belly laughs are few, the cast consistently manages to charm. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 13, 2015
A- 32% Cymbeline (2015) " Almereyda tackles one of the Bard's lesser-regarded later works, the plot-heavy tragicomedy Cymbeline, and again unearths untold depths. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 12, 2015
D+ 20% Kidnapping Mr. Heineken (2015) " Much like the lager that gives the film its name, Kidnapping Mr. Heineken is bland on the palate and best pissed away. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 5, 2015
30% Dig: Season 1 (TV, 2015) " There's little rhyme or reason to the way the series jumps between locales and doles out its prevalent plot twists, and that kills most of the desire to see how these disparate narrative threads will eventually converge. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 3, 2015
56% Focus (2015) " Swindler cinema is only as good as its architecture; once the big picture is revealed, viewers should be thrilled at having had one pulled over on them. Focus, sadly, leaves you feeling bilked. " ‐ The L Magazine
Posted Feb 25, 2015
82% Queen and Country (2015) " Once more unto the breach for writer-director John Boorman, who revisits the semiautobiographical characters from his superb WWII dramedy Hope and Glory in the beautifully bittersweet Queen and Country. " ‐ The L Magazine
Posted Feb 12, 2015
A- 100% GETT: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem (2015) " This all might be laughable if it wasn't based on the very real facts of the Israeli court system, which as portrayed here is like Kafka without the surrealist trappings. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 12, 2015
A- 86% Ballet 422 (2015) " It's rare that movies capture the cumulative toil of the creative process as profoundly as Ballet 422, and the lack of any end-result elation forces some tough, resonant questions with no easy answers. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 5, 2015
D+ 18% Alien Outpost (2015) " [It] sounds, as so many things do on the level of 25-words-or-less ephemera, incredible. In execution, it's a real slog. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 29, 2015
D No Score Yet Veronika Decides to Die (2015) " There's never a moment when Young seems in control of her material, while the performers flail and flounder, trying to unearth some measure of truth in the hoariest plot twist. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 20, 2015
4/5 99% Timbuktu (2015) " Sissako, with a few blunt-force exceptions, usually refrains from showing violence, preferring to juxtapose cruel acts with poetic images. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 16, 2015
33% Blackhat (2015) " What keeps the mélange compelling is the sense of transience that Mann has been nurturing in his recent work. His fascination with characters who have no nation beyond their own immediate selves reaches a kind of emblematic apotheosis. " ‐ Reverse Shot
Posted Jan 16, 2015
3/5 73% American Sniper (2015) " Impressive in the particulars, weaker on the whole. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jan 15, 2015
C 53% Little Accidents (2015) " All of these characters are in pain, and Colangelo never lets the audience forget it, since she's directed everyone to wear similar brooding expressions and walk around as if this screwed-up world and its many adversities are a constant weight. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 15, 2015
50% Futatsume no mado (Still the Water) " It's clear that Japanese director Naomi Kawase has poured her heart and soul into every frame of this wishy-washy drama... That makes it all the more depressing that the end results are so resoundingly uninvolving and off-putting. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 9, 2015
C 51% Unbroken (2014) " Though Jolie is shooting for Christ-like passion and redemption, she only ends up slathering one man's very real, very morbid struggles in the usual reductive "greatest generation" sentiment. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 23, 2014
61% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) " Jackson's at once digressive and bombastic style clearly grates for some. But there's a singular earnestness and enthusiasm to these movies that sets them apart from their many soulless imitators. " ‐ Reverse Shot
Posted Dec 19, 2014
A- 73% Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles (2014) " To a Welles aficionado the doc may seem like well-trod ground. But there's real power in the way Workman (also the sole credited editor) cuts all the material fleetly and acutely together. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 9, 2014
A- 88% Concerning Violence (2014) " Its exploration of an entrenched system that breeds generations of oppression and violence is extremely upsetting yet still highly rewarding. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 4, 2014
65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) " The converted will be satisfied, or at least show up to the theater in obeisant force. Money will be made and anticipation stoked for next year's blowout finale. It's a circle-vicious to some, a religion to others-with no end in sight. " ‐ Baltimore City Paper
Posted Nov 25, 2014
C+ 70% The Immortalists (2014) " Would that the film encouraged some deeper thought on the matter instead of inviting viewers to gawk at the subjects as if they were freak-show attractions. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 25, 2014
B 63% The Homestretch (2014) " Whenever Roque, Kasey, and Anthony are center stage ... The Homestretch is heartrending. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 20, 2014
95% A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014) " There's a sense that Amirpour is too in thrall to her influences and not fully in control of her effects (too many pregnant pauses between characters that don't suggest unspoken depths of feeling so much as actors uncertainly stranded). " ‐ The L Magazine
Posted Nov 19, 2014
B+ 81% Beyond the Lights (2014) " A star-crossed love story is only as good as its Romeo and Juliet. Both Parker and Mbatha-Raw have a sweet, smoldering chemistry that's a joy to witness ... " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 13, 2014
56% Champs (2015) " Former fighters Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins hold court in Bert Marcus's fascinating doc, investigating America's continuing obsession with boxing " ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 6, 2014
B- 91% The Way He Looks (2014) " The movie's overarching compassion does count for a lot. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 6, 2014
B- 73% Point and Shoot (2014) " VanDyke refers to the Libyan conflict as "the most filmed war in history," yet that claim doesn't cheapen his footage, the extraordinary access of which is marred only by its shooter's limited perspective. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 30, 2014
B 75% ABCs of Death 2 (2014) " Not one of the works in this anthology movie sequel cracks 10 minutes, so they barely have time to overstay their welcome. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 30, 2014
4/5 86% Adieu au langage (Goodbye to Language) (2014) " The innovation raises the spirits, but gives you a splitting headache. That's how it is with Godard, who revels in his dreams so willfully that the results are frequently frustrating and opaque. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 27, 2014
41% Horns (2014) " Would that Aja approached the material with more Beelzebub-ian fire. " ‐ The L Magazine
Posted Oct 23, 2014

Posted Oct 23, 2014
B- 43% Young Ones (2014) " Would that there were more beneath the surface of this strange brew, but it's certainly compelling while it lasts. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 16, 2014
1/5 63% Rudderless (2014) " A kind of unholy mash-up of Lynne Ramsay's sobering school-massacre melodrama We Need to Talk About Kevin with John Carney's bogus feel-good musical Begin Again. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 14, 2014
3/5 93% Diplomacy (2014) " Diplomacy's origins as a play (written by Cyril Gely and starring the same actors) are always evident. " ‐ Time Out
