1/4 8% Mother's Day (2016) "The film is so labyrinthine it's scattershot -- introducing new characters only to forget about them until it's convenient to revisit -- which renders the film entirely forgettable. " ‐ National Post
Posted Apr 28, 2016
2.5/4 83% Afternoon (Na Ri Xia Wu) "Some have called "Afternoon" more a "DVD extra" than a real film, but I disagree-like other Tsai films, it establishes its own slow representation of time and the way human interactions and performances play out. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 1, 2016

2/4 87% A Gay Girl in Damascus: The Amina Profile (2015) "The film tries too hard to sensationalize a real-life story that has already been sensationalized enough - the kind that's too strange for fiction - but in doing so undermines the narrative's own weirdness. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Aug 21, 2015
2.5/4 64% Ricki And The Flash (2015) "Regardless of its flimsy emotional interior, Ricki is a worthy addition in this year's growing canon of strong female-centred films, and it would be wise to remember Streep's stunning performance come awards season. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Aug 7, 2015
2.5/5 73% The Wanted 18 (2015) "As promising as this sounds, the filmmakers don't probe their subjects enough to get a nuanced perspective of these experiences. " ‐ The Dissolve

2.5/5 64% Drunktown's Finest (2015) "Drunktown's Finest oscillates between servicing banal plot machinations and the beautiful, symbolic simplicity of the culture it's representing. " ‐ The Dissolve

83% Eden (2015) "Though the film defines Paul's life by his relationships, Eden fails to muster the kind of emotional intensity its story dictates. " ‐ Movie Mezzanine
Posted Sep 13, 2014
91% Love & Mercy (2015) "The result is a disorienting and disappointing experience that finds one thinking a bit too obsessively about how little Dano and Cusack look alike. " ‐ Movie Mezzanine
Posted Sep 13, 2014

Posted Sep 13, 2014
89% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) "It's a genuine pleasure watching these two talented actresses engage on everything from boy troubles to the aesthetic considerations of superhero movies. " ‐ Movie Mezzanine
Posted Sep 13, 2014

Posted Mar 20, 2014
.5/4 12% The Right Kind of Wrong (2014) "The film is so in love with its unoriginal premise that it can't see the forest for the trees, treating reality like an occasionally relevant prop and stalking as a sweetly romantic gesture. " ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Mar 12, 2014
B- 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) "This beautiful film is at its best when it so delicately underscores one of its major ideas, that of learning to let go of a past - a romantic way of life, a virtuous belief system, genteel traditions and rituals - in order to move on with the present.

.5/4 8% Savannah (2013) "The film is impossible to take seriously as a commemoration of Moultrie's life or Allen's prolific status because of its plethora of contrivances. " ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Aug 14, 2013
2/4 77% Kid-Thing (2013) "Its main character's moral predicament with a woman inside a pit becomes a muddle of confused symbolism and trite psychoanalysis. " ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Aug 8, 2013
2/4 63% The Rise (Wasteland) (2013) "At heart a heist movie, snappy and dry in its humor, clever in its elaborate robbery scheme, and somewhat bloated and unspooled in its storytelling. " ‐ Slant Magazine

Posted Jun 13, 2013
1/4 14% As Cool As I Am (2013) "The film is the cinematic equivalent of a teenager, making everything more melodramatic than it needs to be, and impatient with the subtle details of life. " ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jun 6, 2013
4/4 98% Badlands (1974) "It's a testament to Bruce Greenwood's acting that Adan never becomes entirely as insufferable as the words that come out of his mouth. " ‐ Slant Magazine
