Posted Sep 3, 2015
3.5/4 88% A Borrowed Identity (2015) ""Identity" demonstrates its boldness not with stylistic originality but with political acuity. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Sep 3, 2015
49% A Walk In The Woods (2015) "Nolte's performance elevates Katz to the pantheon of disheveled, dissolute sidekicks that includes Walter Brennan in To Have and Have Not, Walter Huston in The Treasure of Sierra Madre, and Edmond O'Brien in The Wild Bunch. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Sep 2, 2015
3/4 64% Learning To Drive (2015) "Endearing, mordant, and impeccably acted. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 28, 2015
3.5/4 96% We Come as Friends (2015) "A fascination with serendipity, irony, and absurdity like that in Werner Herzog's documentaries propels "Friends" into unexpected territory. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 27, 2015
3/4 94% Rosenwald (2015) "Like her subject, Kempner's film doesn't try to be flashy or stylish. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 27, 2015
3/4 93% Meru (2015) "Filmed with such grandeur and intimacy that sometimes attempting to figure out how they made the incredible shots almost spoils them. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 27, 2015
2/4 42% No Escape (2015) "No Escape is a tense but utterly predictable exercise in Western xenophobic paranoia and guilt. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 26, 2015
48% American Ultra (2015) "Eisenberg and Stewart have both found romantic partners with whom they have chemistry (some provided by controlled substances). Tender, forgiving, and sexy, they're the hottest couple on screen at the moment. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 20, 2015
69% Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet (2015) "Unfortunately the drawn-out, drably rendered framing device that strings together these flights of fancy does them no service, and the devout detours merely detract from the minimal appeal of the story. " ‐ Boston Globe

83% Call Me Lucky (2015) ""Call Me Lucky" lives up to the irony and accuracy of its title ... " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 20, 2015
55% Ten Thousand Saints (2015) "It doesn't have a genuine moment. But even period authenticity would not compensate for cardboard characters and a contrived narrative. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 13, 2015
90% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "Like its subjects, the iconic late rap conglomerate N.W.A., F. Gary Gray's "Straight Outta Compton" starts out strong, peaks quickly, and then gets tangled in complications and compromise and falls apart. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 13, 2015
79% Cop Car (2015) "With his sense of black humor and with a coldly calculating view of a world determined by intransigent laws of physics, Watts recalls the Coen brothers of "Blood Simple." " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 13, 2015
2.5/4 56% Samba (2015) "Unfortunately, the material flounders from the broadly farcical to the bombastically melodramatic. " ‐ Boston Globe

Posted Aug 6, 2015
3/4 84% Alleluia (2015) ""Alleluia" is like "Psycho" combined with "Bonnie and Clyde," with Norman and Norma Bates as the conjoined criminal couple on the run. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 6, 2015
3.5/4 99% Shaun the Sheep (2015) "Like a great silent movie, it creates its pathos and comedy out of the concrete objects being animated, building elaborate gags involving everyday items transformed into Rube Goldberg devices. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 5, 2015
2/4 40% 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 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 9, 2015
80% 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

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

1.5/4 52% 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

4/4 89% Winter Sleep (2014) "Such miserable people; why should we care? Maybe because Ceylan does. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 21, 2015

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 7, 2015
2/4 52% 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 30, 2015
