2/4 37% Irrational Man (2015) "In the end, this feeble effort remains tainted, however unfairly, by the creator's personal life. Maybe Allen should have titled it "Rationalizing Man." " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 30, 2015
72% Hippocrates: Diary of a French Doctor (2015) "Lilti, himself a former doctor drawing from his own experience, includes telling details but can't summon a convincing tone. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3.5/4 100% 3 And 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets (2015) "Marc Silver's moving and illuminating documentary "3 1/2 Minutes, Ten Bullets" reveals a lot about what is wrong in the United States today and a little bit of what's right. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 23, 2015
2/4 56% Paper Towns (2015) "Even literate voiceovers (this one isn't so much) telegraph that we're in for safe if dark ironies and rueful platitudes that inevitably resolve in some glib life lesson. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3/4 80% Do I Sound Gay? (2015) "Lighthearted but slyly provocative ... " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3.5/4 No Score Yet Losing Ground "As a directorial debut, "Losing Ground" astonishes with its assurance, subtlety, and style. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 20, 2015
2/4 87% Mr. Holmes (2015) "Director Bill Condon and screenwriter Jeffrey Hatcher are clueless, and come up with an incoherent, implausible, contrived mishmash. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 16, 2015
2.5/4 94% Tangerine (2015) "In effect, "Tangerine" offers a saccharine alternative to the uncut realism of the Safdie brothers' "Heaven Knows What." " ‐ Boston Globe

Posted Jul 16, 2015
2/4 51% Boulevard (2015) "In Dito Montiel's treacly, programmatic film, Williams succumbs to a recurring neediness, earnestness, and sentimentality. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 16, 2015
14% The Gallows (2015) "Exaggerated screaming and squabbling doesn't cover up the inanity. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 9, 2015
82% Infinitely Polar Bear (2015) "The film boasts two of the best child performances so far this year, and Saldana has never been tougher or more vulnerable. Then there's Ruffalo, who demonstrates again why he may be the best actor of his generation. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 2, 2015
2/4 40% A Little Chaos (2015) "Engrossing and entertaining if sometimes trite and manipulative and totally bogus. " ‐ Boston Globe

Posted Jun 11, 2015
3/4 93% The Farewell Party (2015) "A bittersweet, wryly comic, keenly observed look at senescence from Israeli directors Sharon Maymon and Tal Granit. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 11, 2015

Posted Jun 4, 2015
1.5/4 60% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) "Punctuated by intermittent, bogus jump-scares, the plot thickens into opacity. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 4, 2015
1/4 33% Entourage (2015) "The film is stuck in the inconsequential rut of the series. The characters are static, and the comedy is situational rather than dramatic. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 3, 2015
1.5/4 53% In the Name of My Daughter (2015) "More disappointing than the film's inertia and amorphousness is its sacrifice of the real-world themes of class, money, corruption, and power. Unable to decide what story he wanted to tell, Téchiné hedges his bets and loses everything. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 28, 2015

Posted May 21, 2015
4/4 52% Saint Laurent (2015) "Bonello takes on the point of view of Saint Laurent himself, exposing a visionary world seen from within that is as strange and wonderful as that of a magnificently stitched garment turned inside out. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 21, 2015
3/4 97% Black Souls (2015) "Though the content of the typical mob movie can shock with its brutality and perversity, the tragic arc ultimately reinforces traditional values while allowing a vicarious indulgence in the taboo. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 21, 2015
29% Lost River (2015) "Everything ... is painfully obvious or patently nonsensical. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 14, 2015
3.5/4 97% About Elly (2015) "It is perhaps Farhadi's richest, most complex and ambitious. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 7, 2015
2/4 53% 5 Flights Up (2015) "The duo provide a bit of wit and warmth amid the contrived subplots and the self-satisfied moralism. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 7, 2015
3.5/4 85% Cheatin' (2015) "Plympton will be cheated if "Cheatin'" doesn't at least get nominated for a best animated feature Oscar. " ‐ Boston Globe

Posted Apr 23, 2015
1.5/4 18% Little Boy (2015) "This is an ersatz version of the '40s based on other movies' ersatz versions, a Candyland-colored world seen from a child's point of view if that child was a 30-ish filmmaker. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 23, 2015
2.5/4 67% 5 to 7 (2015) "Though Yelchin does not elevate his role much above pasty callowness, Marlohe brings to hers a luminous irony and melancholy that makes her the ideal elusive beauty of hyper-romantic adolescent dreams. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 23, 2015
2.5/4 79% 24 Days (2015) "As a suspenseful true crime story, "24 Days" succeeds. As a warning against the ever present dangers of anti-Semitism, it is eloquent and disturbing. It's in combining the two that Arcady mishandles the case. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 23, 2015
2.5/4 53% La Mafia Uccide solo d'Estate "Some of this is moving, and some of the shtick is weirdly hilarious, but despite Diliberto's apparent sincerity, his attempt to accomplish too many things at once ends up with him accomplishing nothing much at all. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 16, 2015
61% Unfriended (2015) "You might want to take along your smartphone to keep yourself entertained. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 16, 2015
1.5/4 31% The Longest Ride (2015) "It tries to bridge the gap between pop culture and cultural elitism, between high art and the common commodity that everyone else buys tickets to see. A worthy goal, but it results in a movie that has none of the virtues of either. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 9, 2015
2.5/4 40% Northern Borders (2015) "Craven's erratic tonal shifts from the whimsical to the sentimental trip up the episodic plot. " ‐ Boston Globe

2.5/4 42% Effie Gray (2015) "The counterpoint of styles comments on Ruskin with irony and subtlety; as such it succeeds as criticism - and as art. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 2, 2015
1.5/4 64% A Girl Like Her (2015) "The young cast comes through with appealing, naturalistic performances. But Weber's programmatic, preachy story and emotional manipulation is so blatant that it verges on the fatuous. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 26, 2015
3.5/4 100% Seymour: An Introduction (2015) "Whether or not Hawke got any answers to his questions about the purpose of being artist, seeking them under the guidance of a teacher like Bernstein resulted in this work of art. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 26, 2015
3.5/4 97% An Honest Liar (2015) "It would violate a taboo to relate how this movie magic, masterfully orchestrated by Weinstein and Measom, is done. Their film is as smooth as Randi's patter and demonstrates how the documentarian's camera is quicker than the eye. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 19, 2015
3.5/4 100% GETT: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem (2015) "A microcosm of women victimized by patriarchal institutions worldwide as well as an allegory of the universal struggle for freedom. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 19, 2015
2/4 17% The Gunman (2015) "If the film's intent is to condition the audience into a distaste for violence through boredom, it succeeds. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 19, 2015
3/4 97% '71 (2015) "When it comes to vengeance and murderous intrigue, the Belfast in " '71" is a small world. " ‐ Boston Globe

Posted Mar 12, 2015
2/4 79% Deli Man (2015) "In balancing the more objective cultural history of delis with a personal profile, Anjou serves neither well. Perhaps he should have chosen one course or the other. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 12, 2015
3.5/4 86% Accident (1967) "Of Losey's three collaborations with Pinter (the other two are 1963's The Servant and 1970's The Go-Between), it is the most challenging and influential. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 12, 2015
62% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) "Performances from venerable thespians such as Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, and Bill Nighy are nuanced and piquant, but they are stuck in a story with too many moving parts - most of which are worn out from overuse - that never gets anywhere. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 5, 2015
1.5/4 11% Unfinished Business (2015) "Now where have we seen this before? Was it "Jerry Maguire?" Or an episode of "The Office?" Both. Except it was funnier then. " ‐ Boston Globe
