93% Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe (2017) Aenne Schwarz and Barbara Sukowa give strong performances as the author's second and first wives, respectively, but this is Hader's movie. His is one of the great performances of recent years. - Village Voice EDIT

3/4 82% The Armstrong Lie (2013) Gibney's film paints a picture of an overly ambitious man whose supreme, almost clinical, self-confidence severed his connection to reality and truth. - EDIT

4/4 94% All Is Lost (2013) Here is a formidable opus whose real spiritual relative is Tennyson's "Ulysses". Yes. "All is Lost" is that good. - EDIT

3/4 88% Hannah Arendt (2013) Von Trotta's direction is assured and the film has an incredibly strong performance at its core, and it asks a number of important questions, even though it doesn't dare to answer them. - EDIT

33% Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) There's nothing more terrifying than looking at one's food, and seeing on it larval insects. - House Next Door EDIT
