Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
80% Unsane (2018) Unsane is funny and wholly disconcerting, not alternately but in tandem, a tension of clashing moods that exaggerate the paranoia and surreality of the plot.‐ MUBI

90% Isle of Dogs (2018) Leave it to Wes Anderson to find his own eccentric way to pay loving tribute in a fantastical, funny and moving stop-motion animated adventure. ‐ MUBI

92% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) Whedon's humanism and his reverence for horror movies have made for a winning cocktail in television, and now, cinema.‐ MUBI

No Score Yet Romancing in Thin Air (Gao hai ba zhi lian II) (2012) Characters are superseded by the images they project on one another. To shows us a world ruled by sentimental idealism of the movies in and provides an ending according to their rules, but one where the characters remain trapped in fictional romance.‐ MUBI

89% Bernie (2012) While Carthage's citizens may not have gotten the final word on Bernie's fate, Linklater provides them with a consolation: the gift of shaping this film.‐ Cinema Scope

No Score Yet Mary Queen Of Scots (2014) The film fails to come together as anything beyond rudimentary, and that failure is distinctly directorial. ‐ Cinema Scope

78% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) While Scorsese's latest resembles After Hours in its absurdist tone and progressively exhausting succession of wild occurrences, it's GoodFellas that is clearly Wolf's closest cousin in the director's oeuvre.‐ Cinema Scope

94% The Treasure (2016) [Treasure] is an inadvertent journey back into Romania's history, a search for the nameless treasure buried beneath decades of disappointment, dictatorship, and war.‐ Cinema Scope

96% Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) Hitchcock/Truffaut isn't just an invaluable in-depth study of one of cinema's greatest masters, it's also an incredible text about two artists who admired each other. ‐ Cinema Scope

28% Every Thing Will Be Fine (2015) Every Thing Will Be Fine is downright strange. Some of the visual choices really feel like conscious decisions to do something interesting with the format, but the strain is palpable and the subject matter is handled embarrassingly.‐ Cinema Scope

91% No Home Movie (2016) Akerman may have been left with questions about existence that she herself couldn't answer, but she asked them beautifully, often painfully, and we are privileged to be able to continue searching along with her timeless, powerful images.‐ Brooklyn Magazine

81% Sunset Song (2016) From its opening image, a beautiful sweeping shot over a golden field that arrives at the protagonist, the beautiful and modest Chris (Agyness Deyn), one feels the urgency and conviction that lies behind it.‐ Brooklyn Magazine

80% How Heavy This Hammer (2015) How Heavy This Hammer seems to be driven sincerely by human compassion and curiosity, and firmly establishes Radwanski as one of Canada's best working filmmakers.‐ Brooklyn Magazine

88% The Big Short (2015) Dramatically, it's a bit stilted and awkward, with uneven storytelling and a lack of real character development-but the film's performances, momentous editing, and prevailing attitude of sheer anger and frustration overshadow its lesser parts.‐ Brooklyn Magazine

3/5 96% Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) It's hard not to be infectiously drawn in by the passion on display here.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 59% Joy (2015) Joy is a film about life's defiance of expectations. It defies them right back.‐ Little White Lies

96% Gangs of Wasseypur (2014) This epic crime saga sprawls across seven decades and three generations of characters -- like all three parts of The Godfather rolled into one, with an injection of boisterous Bollywood flavour.‐ Georgia Straight

2.5/4 95% Carol (2015) Surprisingly dull and weightless...the direction of the image is often bland and functional.‐ Movie Mezzanine

2.5 46% Irrational Man (2015) One of Allen's most twisted and enjoyable films from the past few years.‐ Movie Mezzanine

2/4 82% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) Flat and feeble‐ Movie Mezzanine
