4/4 88% Winter Sleep (2014) "Such miserable people; why should we care? Maybe because Ceylan does. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 21, 2015
4/4 55% 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 98% About Elly (2015) "It is perhaps Farhadi's richest, most complex and ambitious. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 7, 2015
2/4 59% 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 84% 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
3/4 80% Dior and I (2015) "Fascinating, suspenseful, illuminating, and ultimately moving. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 30, 2015
2/4 44% Adult Beginners (2015) "Fittingly, the film has an adult beginning before slowly sinking into infantile platitudes. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 23, 2015
1.5/4 19% 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 78% 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 54% 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
62% Unfriended (2015) "You might want to take along your smartphone to keep yourself entertained. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 16, 2015
1.5/4 28% 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
Posted Apr 9, 2015
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 67% 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 16% 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
3.5/4 94% A Tale of Winter (1992) "This winter romance by Rohmer, then in his 70s, demonstrates that faith and art can work miracles. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 12, 2015
2/4 77% 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
Posted Mar 5, 2015
100% Humpback Whales "Humpback Whales offers stunning shots that are both intimate and immense. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 4, 2015
86% Ballet 422 (2015) "A perfect match of form and substance ... " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Feb 26, 2015
14% The Lazarus Effect (2015) "There are lessons to be learned from this minimalist thriller. The first is that scaring people requires more than just tossing furniture around, turning the lights off and on, and basically sneaking up from behind and shouting "Boo!" " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Feb 26, 2015
3/4 96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) "A farce nearly on a par with "Zoolander" (2001), "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," (2006) and that gold standard of inanity, "Three Amigos!" (1986). " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Feb 19, 2015
3.5/4 99% Timbuktu (2015) "Sissako achieves the daunting task of humanizing the villains by playing on audience expectations and preconceptions. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Feb 19, 2015
71% The DUFF (2015) "A Derivative Unimaginative Forgettable Film. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Feb 19, 2015
2/4 81% Human Capital (2015) "Though it initially shows signs of overcoming its creakiness, "Capital" loses value when its screenwriters try too hard to be clever. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Feb 12, 2015
88% Actress (2014) "Combining artifice with vérité documentary style, [Greene] underscores the inextricability of real life and make-believe, of genuine behavior and self-conscious performance. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Feb 5, 2015
2.5/4 38% Black or White (2015) "Despite the best of intentions, a career-best performance from Kevin Costner, and outstanding work by Octavia Spencer and child actor Jillian Estell, "Black or White" succumbs to some of the same stereotypes it tries to dispel. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 30, 2015
3.5/4 93% The Duke Of Burgundy (2015) "Sexy stuff. In the deepest sense. Unhealthy erotic stimulation for the mind. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 30, 2015
2.5/4 35% Project Almanac (2015) "[It] could have been a lot worse. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 30, 2015
1.5/4 49% Cake (2015) "Perhaps a more imaginative director might have brought some genuine feeling or grace to this bathos, but Barnz merely allows Aniston maximum screen time and shoots her to highlight her artfully ratty hair and crosshatched skin. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 22, 2015
2/4 11% The Boy Next Door (2015) ""The Boy Next Door" may end up as one of the worst movies of 2015, but it is also one of the most entertaining. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 22, 2015
4/4 100% Blade Runner (The Final Cut) (2007) "Perhaps on its deepest level, "Blade Runner" explores ... a theme as old as Genesis and the myth of Prometheus, and iterated in "Paradise Lost," Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein," and in Blake's arcane, visionary mythology. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 22, 2015
1.5/4 76% Beloved Sisters (2015) "If nothing else, "Beloved Sisters" is one of the most visually striking biopics around. Too bad you have to wade through so much verbiage in order to enjoy it. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 22, 2015
3/4 98% Paddington (2015) "True, a lot of marmalade gets spread around, and at times the zaniness gets a bit too slap-sticky, but it's all good clean fun. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 15, 2015
1.5/4 56% Spare Parts (2015) "Though based on a true story, "Spare Parts," like every other studio product, rehashes clichés from other movies so as not to unduly challenge the audience. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 15, 2015
3/4 84% Predestination (2015) "A messy but affecting parable about fate, gender, and identity. And time, which combines the three. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 12, 2015
1.5/4 46% The Gambler (2014) "It's just like the Kenny Rogers song says: "You've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em." It's time for this "Gambler" to walk away. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Dec 26, 2014
2/4 91% The Way He Looks (2014) "Ribeiro lacks a sense of dramatic construction, with the narrative stumbling about thoughtlessly, retracing the same ground over and over. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Dec 18, 2014
No Score Yet Nova Express "The repeated, retro images eventually coalesce into a tawdry, otherworldly miasma, suitable for Burroughs's gravelly monologue - a cross between Raymond Chandler and Rimbaud. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Dec 12, 2014
2/4 83% Zero Motivation (2014) "It is much like the first season of a TV series that has gotten off to a slow start. " ‐ Boston Globe
