1.5/4 84% Animals (2015) "The trajectory of "Animals" is obvious in the opening minutes of this numbing if well-acted junkie drama. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted May 14, 2015
3/4 No Score Yet Always Watching: A Marble Hornets Story (2015) "Based on the engrossing web series "Marble Hornets," this unnerving ghost story presents random, split-second appearances by a faceless, silent ghoul ... that presage a lethal insanity overtaking his victims. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted May 14, 2015
3/4 85% Tangerines (2015) "It is difficult not to be moved by "Tangerines," which begins to feel like a legend despite one's nagging sense something is missing from the film's hasty third act. " ‐ Seattle Times

Posted Apr 30, 2015
3/4 27% After the Ball (2015) "If Shakespeare had a go at "Cinderella," and the result was later adapted for a 21st-century romantic comedy, it might look something like "After the Ball." " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Apr 23, 2015
1.5/4 8% The Forger (2015) "As the film's title suggests, there is something inauthentic about it all. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Apr 23, 2015
3/4 79% Deli Man (2015) "Gruber's sense of a calling to tradition is a common denominator among the many deli owners we meet in this fun and interesting film, mostly stressed-out men who somehow find deep satisfaction in being part of a long history. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Apr 17, 2015
3/4 89% White God (2015) "A mixed-genre fable that evokes Dickensian melodrama, coming-of-age tropes and outright horror. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Apr 9, 2015
1.5/4 75% Welcome To New York (2015) "Circles a point about spiritual corruption without ever landing on it. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Apr 2, 2015
2/4 89% Spring (2015) "This oddball film's mashup innovations often come at the price of storytelling discipline and, to some extent, common sense. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Mar 27, 2015
3/4 43% Lost And Love (2015) "Peng's eye as a director is more pictorial than visually adventurous, but she can underscore the urgent heart of a scene - no matter how busy - with impressive speed. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Mar 20, 2015

Posted Feb 26, 2015
2.5/4 36% Hits (2015) "While the film is well-intended and scores points for skewering disposable idolatry, it seems off the mark, murky, about its acerbic message. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Feb 12, 2015
2/4 74% Amira & Sam (2015) ""Amira & Sam" is all over the map in terms of tone. But it does score a few points as an unusual tale about the casualties of war. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jan 29, 2015

Posted Jan 22, 2015
3/4 98% Appropriate Behavior (2015) "Akhavan's most effective resource as a storyteller is her own face, a sometimes Chaplinesque blend of farce and pathos. She is a big talent to watch. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jan 20, 2015
2/4 28% Before I Disappear (2014) ""Before I Disappear" would be a better movie if would-be triple-threat talent Shawn Christensen got out of his own way. " ‐ Seattle Times

Posted Dec 26, 2014
3/4 85% Zero Motivation (2014) "A series of absurd vignettes set in a remote military unit that is running on its own nutty, internal rules and values, this comedy's bite grows sharper the longer one watches. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Dec 11, 2014
3/4 87% Kung Fu Panda (2008) "There's something about the look of Kung Fu Panda that is so novel and pleasing. Perhaps it's just that we haven't seen this vintage, Far East world in a computer-animated movie before. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Dec 7, 2014

Posted Nov 6, 2014
3/4 29% Autómata (2014) "One gets the feeling of witnessing some kind of primordial origin story about parallel destinies for the human race and the intelligent machines we make. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Oct 9, 2014
3/4 No Score Yet Pacific Aggression (2014) "This is a film in which the holding of hands by two people is a harder-won achievement than climbing 4,000 feet to Mailbox Peak. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Oct 2, 2014
3.5/4 66% Jimi: All Is by My Side (2014) "The film's own spontaneous experimentation provides dazzling context for the musician's impact on the world. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Sep 26, 2014
3.5/4 13% The Man on Her Mind (2014) "How do we know when we're truly living authentic lives, or have fully given ourselves over to passion and trust with another? It wouldn't occur to most romantic comedies to ask those questions. "The Man On Her Mind" answers them. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Sep 11, 2014

Posted Sep 4, 2014
3.5/4 80% A Letter to Momo (2014) "Despite the hand-drawn film's supernatural edge, one of Okiura's lyrical strengths is acquainting a viewer with the poetry of the real - animated reflections of ordinary, beautiful things we see in everyday life without actually noticing them at all. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Sep 4, 2014
3.5/4 58% Finding Fela! (2014) ""Finding Fela!" is an apt title for this dynamic and thorough documentary by Alex Gibney. " ‐ Seattle Times

Posted Aug 7, 2014
3.5/4 No Score Yet Burkholder "In the end, "Burkholder" is about what we owe each other in loyalty, sacrifice and kindness. This very human film deserves a wide audience. " ‐ Seattle Times

Posted Jul 24, 2014

Posted Jul 17, 2014
3/4 86% Korengal (2014) "Most fascinating is the seemingly unanimous feeling that while deployment in Korengal was hard and heartbreaking, these veterans would do it all again just to stay together, to remain brothers who mutually understand something no on else will ever know. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jul 3, 2014
3/4 93% Bound By Flesh (2014) "Both tragic and almost incomprehensibly strange. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jul 3, 2014
3.5/4 83% Evergreen: The Road to Legalization in Washington (2014) "A taut, thorough chronicle of the 2012 campaign to pass Initiative 502 - which proposed legalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana for recreational use - "Evergreen" is an energetic study of a hard-fought battle. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jun 26, 2014
2.5/4 88% The Discoverers (2014) "Schwarz can't make enough out of that goofy notion - visually or narratively - to get a comic steam going. But there are sidebar pleasures to be found ... " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jun 19, 2014
3/4 95% The Dance of Reality (2014) "Part of the dance in "The Dance of Reality" is between one's own destiny and uncontrollable forces. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jun 19, 2014
2/4 32% Lullaby (2014) "A tortured weepie that can't quite figure out what sort of movie it is, "Lullaby" wears out its welcome fairly quickly. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jun 12, 2014
2.5/4 63% Rigor Mortis (2014) "Even if Mak's drawn-out special effects seem like overkill, the bottom line is that he spins a good campfire yarn. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jun 5, 2014
2/4 46% Miss Lovely (2014) "What it is exactly is a little uncertain, given the film's curiously sluggish pace for a retro-thriller and discouragingly murky camerawork that makes action sequences, especially, hard to follow. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jun 5, 2014
3/4 79% Before You Know It (2014) "A bittersweet documentary that follows three gay men in different parts of the country who feel time and change breathing down their necks. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jun 5, 2014
3/4 71% Documented (2014) "The film is at its best when Vargas, like a good journalist, probes the subject of immigration and talks to people about their experiences and opinions. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted May 30, 2014
1.5/4 63% Filth (2014) "Exhausting in its relentless depravity, "Filth" nevertheless is reminiscent of a much better movie also adapted from a novel by Irvine Welsh: Danny Boyle's 1996 "Trainspotting." " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted May 29, 2014
3/4 73% The German Doctor (2014) "Puenzo masterfully balances the film's thriller edge with disturbing details about Mengele's obsession with genetic experimentation, as well as the community of German expatriates in Argentina helping old Nazis elude arrest. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted May 22, 2014
4/4 86% Cold in July (2014) "Movies incorporate plot twists all the time, but rarely with the mind-blowing relish of "Cold In July." " ‐ Seattle Times
