77% Jimmy's Hall (2015) "Like the shot of folks on bicycles pedaling away in support of their folk hero Jimmy at the film's conclusion, it's real populism at work. " ‐ Village Voice

89% A Borrowed Identity (2015) "Traditional coming-of-age films like A Borrowed Identity don't often come from Israel, which is one of the film's points. " ‐ Village Voice

Posted Mar 10, 2015
68% All The Wilderness (2015) "[Instead of being] "yet another" coming-of-age/identity-quest film [...] All the Wilderness is interlaced with literate and interesting characters. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Feb 20, 2015

Posted Nov 7, 2014
88% Actress (2014) "Using these sequences, letting things be unresolved yet still relatable to anyone of any age, sex or career stage, was a great creative decision. Brandy becomes us. " ‐ Film Journal International

22% Dracula Untold (2014) "But for a walk on the wild side with a dangerous rake, look elsewhere. As one of the characters in the film says, the world (at least the movie world) doesn't need a hero, it needs a monster. Got that right. " ‐ Film Journal International

39% Two Night Stand (2014) "These two are nice, though, which is nice. But the film is a date you won't want to repeat, despite its sparkly out-of-left-field conclusion. It's just another casual encounter, not a lasting thing. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Sep 25, 2014
83% Alumbrones (2014) "Much of this is in the "who knew" mode, and it's lovely to get extended shots of the art. But the human angle is not skirted either. " ‐ Film Journal International

Posted Jul 2, 2014
23% Third Person (2014) "Writer-director Paul Haggis' new film will most likely screen soon on long airline flights: perfect for a movie where you sometimes don't know where you are, and with so many plot ellipses you needn't worry if you missed something while in the loo. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jun 17, 2014
81% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) "Facing its issues with such wit and attitude keeps the film from ever being lugubrious. That and Shailene Woodley. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Jun 6, 2014
97% We Are the Best! (2014) "So add We Are the Best! to the growing canon of excellent girl-band movies...And in this film, being in a band is a way to find yourself. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted May 28, 2014
88% The Immigrant (2014) "James Gray's film sticks in your head both for the images it creates, and for those triggered in myth memory, of the immigrant experience in America. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted May 15, 2014

Posted May 7, 2014
65% Small Time (2014) "Toss in some scenes cleverly reminiscent of the spritzy routines of Diner (but with older folks) and the boiler-room sales tactics of Glengarry Glen Ross, and you've got the best highlights of Small Time... " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Apr 18, 2014
7% Authors Anonymous (2014) "...Authors Anonymous manages to be sweet-tempered mainly thanks to lead Kaley Cuoco. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Apr 18, 2014

Posted Mar 27, 2014
23% Shirin In Love (2014) "Shirin in Love, like its protagonist, looks ditzy at first but quickly becomes a thinking woman's romantic comedy, making a lie of recent media claims that the genre is defunct. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Mar 13, 2014
15% Endless Love (2014) "...Endless Love is silly and trumped up, though it may do something for tween girls dreaming over Pettyfer. " ‐ Film Journal International
Posted Feb 13, 2014
