2.5/4 95% Boy and the World (O Menino e o Mundo) (2015) "This Brazilian film isn't strong on story, but it does have incredible visuals. From abstract design to dazzling cityscapes, this is like seeing "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" for 80 minutes. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Feb 10, 2016
4/4 95% Son of Saul (2015) "This Oscar-nominated Hungarian film is a remarkable look at a single life in the Holocaust. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Feb 10, 2016
2/4 64% A Perfect Day (2016) "The movie's got a great concept, and Benicio Del Toro is terrific, but the black-comedy tone feels off from the very beginning. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Feb 10, 2016
2.5/4 93% The Lady In The Van (2015) "The film has its witty moments, although it seems too smoothly rounded-off to be really memorable. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Feb 10, 2016
3/4 58% The Finest Hours (2016) "Part 21st-century effects movie, part old-fashioned Hollywood flick, this account of a 1952 Coast Guard rescue raises some real shivers. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 29, 2016
4/4 96% 45 Years (2015) "A devastating portrait of the damage that can be done by secrets. The two actors are superb. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 29, 2016
3/4 95% Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) "Filmmaker Kent Jones captures the spirit of the book, even if the documentary strays into generalized observations about Hitchcock's art. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 29, 2016
2.5/4 79% Ip Man 3 (2016) "Built around cheerfully broad emotional deck-stacking, regularly-spaced fight scenes, and charismatic actors, Ip Man 3 delivers its punches with confidence. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 22, 2016
2/4 83% Lamb (2016) "Lamb clearly wants to make a thoughtful exploration of two lost people, yet the intentions get waylaid by the sheer weirdness of the situation. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 22, 2016
2/4 71% The World Of Kanako (Kawaki) (2015) "This frantic, fractured movie is unpleasant in a variety of ways, and is probably for fans of Japanese cult movies only. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 22, 2016
1/4 7% Norm of the North (2016) "The film's visual style is extremely basic, and the lame jokes and scattered storytelling make you appreciate how focused the best animated films are. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 15, 2016
1.5/4 13% Ride Along 2 (2016) "Where the first movie let peppy Kevin Hart riff on absurd situations while Ice Cube stood around looking stone-faced, this sequel is overwhelmed by plot and a lack of comedic set-ups. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 15, 2016
2.5/4 69% Dreams Rewired (2015) "The entertaining Tilda Swinton narrates, from a high-falutin' academic script, but it's the images that provide the fascination. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 15, 2016
62% Concussion (2015) "The film is respectable to the point of stuffiness. Even Will Smith's effortless movie-star charisma can't enliven his saintly character. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 14, 2016
92% Anomalisa (2015) "Anomalisa is lemon-sucking sour, but there are enough gimmicks-and enough lacerating humor-to make the film memorable. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 14, 2016
2.5/4 11% The Forest (2016) "Some of the jolts are pretty good, and the movie doesn't cheat with its big revelations. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 8, 2016
82% The Revenant (2015) "This is a film of simple ideas and overwhelming images-but at the movies, for better or worse, images win. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 7, 2016
100% Aferim! (2016) "Despite subject matter that involves slavery, torture, and relentless bigotry, the film is wildly, bitterly funny. " ‐ Film Comment Magazine
Posted Jan 4, 2016
98% Appropriate Behavior (2015) "What seems most promising about Akhavan's directing talent is her very specific eye. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 2, 2016
3/4 79% Flowers (Loreak) (2015) "They don't give Oscars for floristry, but if they did, this movie would win in a walk. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 1, 2016
3/4 93% Carol (2015) "Blanchett and Mara are superb at executing one of the cinema's great gifts: the exchanged glance, held long enough to scorch even the well-mannered Fifties. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 29, 2015
2.5/4 31% Daddy's Home (2015) "There's just enough of that kind of oddness to keep Daddy's Home recognizably, and acceptably, Ferrellesque. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 29, 2015
3/4 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) "What redeems the sourness of The Hateful Eight is the pleasure in yarn-spinning (and tangling). " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 29, 2015
78% R100 (2015) "I think the film veers off too far into such strangeness (could there be a Japanese TV game show spun off from all this?), but connoisseurs of this kind of thing will find the ripeness hard to resist. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 21, 2015
99% Song Of The Sea (2014) "Song is absolutely dazzling in its visual presentation and not so thrilling in its conventional storytelling. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 21, 2015
93% Hard to be a God (2015) "We are shown that the world is a cesspool, in repetitive detail, for three hours. It's an incredible-looking and -sounding immersion, but not quite a conversation. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 21, 2015
99% Leviathan (2014) "No shocker that Leviathan is one of this year's Oscar nominees for Best Foreign Language Film. The movie is ambitious and serious and takes on issues of society, all ingredients for nominee status. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 21, 2015
96% Girlhood (2015) "Girlhood stands on its own as a thoughtful, nonjudgmental look at a lost teen who finds definition over the course of a few rocky months. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 21, 2015
35% Song One (2015) "There's something just too precious about it all. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 21, 2015
93% The Duke Of Burgundy (2015) "Dressing these everyday anxieties in bondage gear gives the movie an undercurrent of droll humor, which becomes part of its sneaky appeal. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 21, 2015
89% Mommy (2015) "You can see the talent that lies beneath Dolan's aggressive method, and the promise of something great in his future. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 21, 2015
97% Two Days, One Night (2014) "That's what is so devastating about this superb film: We might have Sandra's dilemma as the focus of our attention, but every one of these people has a comparable story. In these circumstances, that realization is heartbreaking. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 21, 2015
2.5/4 60% Sisters (2015) "At this point Fey and Poehler have perfected that kind of in-sync comic timing. If they can apply that to movies that are actually good, they may still make some classics. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 18, 2015
2.5/4 73% Youth (2015) "This is an uneven movie, but it does offer pleasure: all those handsome surfaces and green hills. If our culture fetishizes youth, this movie at least comes down on the side of experience and age, even as it chronicles the pains of growing old. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 18, 2015
2/4 70% The Danish Girl (2015) "The Danish Girl is content to quietly admire its own importance, and assume you will too. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 18, 2015
3.5/4 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "It's a relief to see a big, splashy movie that actually maintains a sense of childlike play. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 16, 2015
99% Selma (2015) "The feeling that the victories of 1965 can be viewed through our 2015 eyes as unfulfilled promises gives Selma its present-day juice. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 12, 2015
3/4 91% James White (2015) "Abbott's performance is serious and committed; James White is constantly fuming in an interior dispute with the rest of the world. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 11, 2015
3/4 93% Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015) "Director Amy Berg interviews Joplin's old colleagues, and it's good to hear people speak of her without turning her into a plaster saint. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 4, 2015
2/4 82% Chi-Raq (2015) "Lee is really letting it rip here. And although in a variety of ways Chi-Raq is overbearing and stilted, the thing is so unusual you can't help keeping your eyes glued to the screen. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 4, 2015
1/4 13% Asthma (2015) "It must be possible to make a movie in which the hero is a trust-fund baby/heroin addict/car thief and still maintain some rooting interest in the story's outcome. Asthma is not that movie. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 1, 2015
2.5/4 83% In the Basement (Im Keller) (2015) "We're never quite sure how much the director is ridiculing his subjects, or simply allowing them to be. Either way feels plenty creepy. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 1, 2015
3.5/4 98% Brooklyn (2015) "Saoirse Ronan plays this interior drama with intelligence and a sincerity that seems true to the film's era. In some ways she's an innocent abroad, but she's nobody's patsy. What a refreshingly authentic character to root for. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Nov 20, 2015
3/4 31% By The Sea (2015) "Failed effort though it may be, I liked watching this film. The thing is easy on the eyes, for starters, but I also admire the go-for-it level of foolish ambition here. Say what you will about Angelina Jolie, but she's not playing it safe. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Nov 20, 2015
3/4 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) "The good news is that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 2 reminds us of why Collins' dystopian trilogy caught fire in the first place. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Nov 20, 2015
0.5/4 33% My All American (2015) "This is the kind of movie they make you watch in grade school. It's meant to be good for you, and the entry-level script has every cliché in the playbook. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Nov 13, 2015
3/4 96% Spotlight (2015) "Spotlight creates excitement from the day-to-day business of recognizing uncomfortable facts. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Nov 13, 2015
88% Backcountry (2015) "Sometimes you eat the bear, sometimes the bear eats you, as the philosopher Sam Elliott said. Backcountry succeeds by not straying far from that core belief. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Nov 12, 2015
90% Amour Fou (2015) "Austrian director Jessica Hausner has fashioned a formal, feminist, wickedly humorous variation on history. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Nov 12, 2015
63% The Water Diviner (2015) "The Water Diviner feels almost too careful in its desire to hit all the right notes and do justice to all sides. Which makes it more of a war memorial than a living, breathing movie. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
