83% Monk With a Camera (2014) "Monk With a Camera has a placid air about it, an air of acceptance, perhaps. That it embodies a certain Buddhist calm is appropriate, although it doesn't make for the most exciting movie-watching experience. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Nov 12, 2015
88% A Fuller Life "If you are already a fan of Samuel Fuller's uncompromising pulp cinema, you'll be delighted by this new documentary tour covering the life and career of the director,writer, and producer. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Nov 12, 2015
79% Ned Rifle (2015) "As much as I generally enjoy revisiting Hartley's world, there's a touch of half-baked off-off-Broadway theater about Ned Rifle. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Nov 12, 2015
3/4 77% The Assassin (2015) "Could Hou have gotten his effects and still provided a little more storytelling clarity? Maybe. But after a while, the movie's countless fogbanks and smoke clouds become as much its subject as the petty intrigues of some long-forgotten political dispute. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Nov 9, 2015
3/4 87% Tab Hunter Confidential (2015) "Hunter comes across as genial and private, a gentle fellow who prefers raising horses (a lifelong interest) to showbiz. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Nov 9, 2015
3/4 64% Spectre (2015) "Some of the episodes are faintly absurd, but then this is a James Bond movie. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Nov 6, 2015
3/4 95% The Wonders (2015) "An oddball coming-of-age tale that creates loopy magic by the end. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Nov 6, 2015
3.5/4 88% Experimenter (2015) "A compelling experience, a film of ideas that is almost a tone poem, too " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 30, 2015
1.5/4 68% The Keeping Room (2015) "The Keeping Room has large things to say about war, and how war fosters rape and dehumanization. This timely message is wielded in a blunt-force manner -- so blunt that the idea becomes unintentionally sensationalized. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 30, 2015
3/4 94% Rosenwald (2015) "The wonderful true story told in Rosenwald is a terrific history lesson, and an inspirational portrait of how one person can make a difference. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 30, 2015
3/4 29% Burnt (2015) "Burnt is an enjoyable entry in this subgenre, anchored by a rangy Bradley Cooper performance and marbled with food. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 30, 2015
2.5/4 61% Extraordinary Tales (2015) "The fact that an author who died 166 years ago continues to be a draw for moviemakers says something about Edgar Allan Poe's imagination. And here's a feverish new animated Poe feature -- released just in time for Halloween. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 23, 2015
3/4 75% Labyrinth Of Lies (2015) "The historical material is strong enough (and the period sufficiently re-created) to carry the film. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 23, 2015
89% A Most Violent Year (2015) "Chandor is paying respect to a serious American moviemaking style employed 40 years ago by directors like Sidney Lumet and Francis Ford Coppola, in which a system's structure is brought into the cold, hard light. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Oct 20, 2015
3/4 90% Mississippi Grind (2015) "Above all, the movie offers the electric snap of an actor stretching out in his full powers. Ben Mendelsohn just went all in. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 16, 2015
3/4 91% Beasts of No Nation (2015) "It's hard to watch, as expected, but also compelling. There's no phony uplift or redemption offered, just a set of character studies and a clear vision of how violence sustains itself. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 16, 2015
3.5/4 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "Bridge of Spies feels like two movies laid end-to-end, but both are so deftly handled that the divide hardly matters. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 16, 2015
89% The Drop (2014) "Gandolfini, of course, owns this turf, and the late actor goes out strong -- he can suggest a lifetime's frustration just by the way he shoulders his bulk out of a car. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Oct 10, 2015
60% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "Such ingenuity is at the service of a project that lost its emotional core when Jackson decided to take Tolkien's relatively streamlined novel and pump it up into three plus-sized movies. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Oct 10, 2015
3/4 92% The Creeping Garden (2015) "The Creeping Garden is indeed a fascinating film about slime mold, and that it fulfills the documentary objective of informing us about a subject we know little about. The film flies bravely in the face of the world's ignorance of slime mold, in fact. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 9, 2015
3/4 71% He Named Me Malala (2015) "The delightful thing is that Malala is too distinctive to simply stand on a pedestal for a do-gooder movie. Her quick, observant personality comes shining out of this project, as though eager to move past her biographer and get on with it. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 9, 2015
95% Wild Tales (2015) "Wild Tales is a showy exercise, and Szifr├│n has undoubtedly punched his ticket for bigger and better things. He'll have to deliver something more than a scattering of gotchas next time. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Oct 3, 2015
85% John Wick (2014) "If you can put up with the constant gunfire and the aggressive score, John Wick offers ridiculous but satisfying action. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Oct 3, 2015
2.5/4 92% The Martian (2015) "I like movies about solving problems, and Damon gives a skillful performance, and Scott's ability to put you in the middle of a howling Martian gale is impressive. But man, The Martian is corny. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 2, 2015
3/4 77% Racing Extinction (2015) "As an example of image-dissemination, Racing Extinction is skillful, right down to the evocative (but nonstop) music by J. Sharp. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Sep 25, 2015
2.5/4 84% Meet The Patels (2015) "Meet the Patels is a funny, lightweight look at the weight of cultural traditions. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Sep 25, 2015
2.5/4 81% The New Girlfriend (2015) "If this movie had been made 20 years ago, it might have had a little more kink to it; but now, although it's expertly done, it's a little late to the transgressive party. Even bad boys lose their edge. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Sep 18, 2015
3/4 89% Horse Money (2015) "osta's impoverished landscape is visualized in a series of beautifully composed, carefully lighted images. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Sep 18, 2015
2.5/4 48% Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) "It's not anything groundbreaking in the young adult genre, but these films make the questions tangibly teenage and an absolute blast to watch. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Sep 18, 2015
3/4 70% Slow Learners (2015) "Although it is difficult to believe that the people on screen would actually do the things they do, the movie is undeniably funny. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Sep 11, 2015
3/4 79% The Mend (2015) "Say this for John Magary's indie drama: You can't predict where it's going from one moment to the next. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Sep 11, 2015
98% The Babadook (2014) "[Writer/director Jennifer Kent] skillfully keeps us locked into the moment-by-moment thrills of a monster movie, but also insists that this Babadook is clearly a stand-in for the other problems that inflict the lonely household. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Sep 11, 2015
97% It Follows (2015) "It's been a while since a movie made me feel that way, but David Robert Mitchell's It Follows creates that kind of constant anxiety. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Sep 1, 2015
74% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "Writer/director Joss Whedon balances comedy and derring-do with dexterity, and this sequel to 2012's top grosser doesn't stall the franchise. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Sep 1, 2015
2.5/4 64% Digging For Fire (2015) "The large, talented cast is clearly thriving in the freewheeling style. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 28, 2015
2/4 55% Ten Thousand Saints (2015) "The movie feels like a quickly-sketched version of something much, much bigger. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 28, 2015

Posted Aug 21, 2015
2/4 18% Jellyfish Eyes (2015) "Whatever theories Murakami has perfected in his visual art, he's miscalculated in his feature-filmmaking dabble. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 21, 2015
3/4 72% American Sniper (2015) "Kyle is ably played by a hulked-up Bradley Cooper, who leaves out neurotic shadings in favor of a straightforward turn that seems fittingly non-complex. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 14, 2015
3/4 95% A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014) "Amirpour, an experienced hand at short films, is content to let the movie float along on its gorgeous monochrome look and punk attitude. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 14, 2015
3/4 98% Phoenix (2015) "Phoenix is an extremely well-made picture, with fine lead performances by Hoss and Zehrfeld, who acted together in Petzold's fascinating Barbara. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 14, 2015
3/4 77% Tom at the Farm (2015) "There's something urgent going on with this French-Canadian director, and youth has a great deal to do with it. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 14, 2015
2.5/4 76% People Places Things (2015) "People is an easy watch if you're a fan of Clement, who not only maintains his droll delivery but seems to have real chemistry with the actresses who play his daughters, Aundrea and Gia Gadsby. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 14, 2015
1.5/4 70% The Wanted 18 (2015) "Taken separately, there is nothing wrong with political documentaries, animation, or talking animals. Put them together, and you have my kryptonite. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 7, 2015
4/4 96% The Look of Silence (2015) "Whether the events of 1965 will ever entirely bend toward justice is hard to predict, but these films, with their bold and unsettling tactics, will have played a role in that process. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 7, 2015
2.5/4 78% Jimmy's Hall (2015) "The tensions in Ireland after independence are fascinating but complicated, and Loach and Laverty haven't found a way to bundle those tensions into a movie that breathes on its own. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 7, 2015
2/4 52% Boulevard (2015) "[Williams] remains a presence of grace in a film that is otherwise not up to his very particular talents. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jul 31, 2015
3/4 82% Our Man in Tehran (2015) "The story's a good one (already familiar if you saw Argo), and it's interesting to see the real-life versions of characters portrayed by Ben Affleck, etc. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jul 31, 2015
3/4 100% Court (2015) "The movie is simply called Court, and the generalized title is as potent here as it is with Kafka's nightmare novel The Trial. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jul 31, 2015
2/4 84% Do I Sound Gay? (2015) "There are enough amusing observations and anecdotes to make the film diverting. Thorpe's own adventure in speech therapy... looks suspiciously like something a documentary filmmaker would do to give his movie a through-line. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jul 24, 2015
3/4 96% Tangerine (2015) "What tips the scales in justifying the movie's screwball-comedy approach is the sheer human vitality of the people on screen, especially Rodriguez and Taylor. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
