8/10 78% This is Home: A Refugee Story (2018) Given the current climate on the subject of immigration, it remains pertinent and perhaps even necessary.‐ Paste Magazine

7.9/10 No Score Yet It Will Be Chaos (2018) Whatever your vantage point, this film should make it pretty clear that we need to be a lot more agile about handling humanitarian crises. It doesn't offer any clear answers, but the whole issue is that there might not really be any.‐ Paste Magazine

8.2/10 92% John McCain: For Whom the Bell Tolls (2018) HBO would like to offer you the following answer: "No, you shouldn't respect John McCain because he has stage IV brain cancer." It has a lot of other reasons why you should. And you'll agree or you won't.‐ Paste Magazine

9.1/10 98% The Tale (2018) Please do not call The Tale "a #MeToo movie." It's reductive. And this beautiful, gripping, disturbing film deserves to be looked at with as much nuance as it offers. It's not a damned hashtag-anything movie.‐ Paste Magazine

34% Fahrenheit 451 (2018) Now it's an HBO movie that wants to turn that idea into a skillet and whack it right into the squishy spots where the bones in your head don't quite come together. ‐ Paste Magazine

8.5/10 100% Mercury 13 (2018) Honestly, if this film doesn't grab you by the heart, check your pulse to make sure you still have one.‐ Paste Magazine

7.9/10 No Score Yet Symphony for Our World (2018) It holds your attention. It's a good concept. But it could have been much more.‐ Paste Magazine

8.9/10 No Score Yet I Am MLK Jr. (2018) I Am MLK Jr. is more than a biographical documentary: It is equally about the issues facing Dr. King that we still face today.‐ Paste Magazine

8.5/10 100% Dolores (2017) This documentary's not exactly perfect, but it's thorough, sincere and real and a great primer if you're one of the many to whom her name is unfamiliar.‐ Paste Magazine

8.9/10 90% Arthur Miller: Writer (2018) [It] is a thorough and thoroughly excellent documentary about a very significant 20th century writer. It's also thoroughly excellent in its presentation of the larger and more universal quandaries around how children understand their parents‐ Paste Magazine

7.2/10 No Score Yet Agents of Change (2016) This is such an important subject. It changed higher education in the United States, indelibly. It was deeply complex. It deserves more than a congratulatory gloss.‐ Paste Magazine

9.1/10 100% Atomic Homefront (2017) This film won't be easy to watch, but I strongly recommend you do it. And maybe check the maps and be very aware of whether there are untreated Superfund sites near where you live.‐ Paste Magazine

8.4/10 No Score Yet Behind the Movement: The Rosa Parks Story (2018) This film is beautifully acted and richly scripted and well worth watching.‐ Paste Magazine

8.2/10 75% Winnie (2017) This documentary is frank, personal, and totally unapologetic.‐ Paste Magazine

4.9/10 No Score Yet The Vatican Deception (2018) It is far enough to one end of the docu-spectrum that it shares a border with "advertorial," though I think it would be mean-spirited and beside the point to call it propagandistic. It seeks to educate. It doesn't do a very thorough job of it.‐ Paste Magazine

No Score Yet Diana - Her Story (2017) Honestly, I think this might be the closest I have been to literally crying from boredom while watching a PBS doc.‐ Paste Magazine

92% Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy (2017) This documentary is also in the "pathologically respectful" category, but it at least has a focus that makes clear that it understands its own purpose. ‐ Paste Magazine

No Score Yet Diana: In Her Own Words (2017) A markedly, deliberately one-sided piece, constructed entirely from Diana's own voice over archival footage, it's compelling, well-executed, and gives a sense of the personal, the intimate-the sense that this is the "real" Princess Diana.‐ Paste Magazine

No Score Yet Princess Diana: Tragedy or Treason? (2017) This is, first of all, a wretchedly bad piece of television ... But it certainly gets at the other side of the coin.‐ Paste Magazine

6.8/10 66% Victoria & Abdul (2017) For fans of Judi Dench, Victoria and Abdul will be utterly worth it-but as much as it pains me to say it, this film suffers from a lack of bravery.‐ Paste Magazine

7.9/10 No Score Yet Agnelli (2017) If style and charm are enough to keep you riveted for two hours, you'll love this film; it does what it does very, very well. And I now know a lot about what Gianni Agnelli wore and whom he slept with.‐ Paste Magazine

8.7/10 94% The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee (2017) It's a fully rendered portrait of a man who loved journalism and became one of the most influential newsmakers of the 20th century.‐ Paste Magazine

5/10 No Score Yet The Lost Wife of Robert Durst (2017) Honestly, if you're looking for drama, keep looking. ‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 62% Maya Dardel (2017) That's not a way of saying, "Don't bother with this movie." By all means, bother. Just know that the human munition in the title role is so screen-filling that the actual story is a little flat by comparison.‐ Paste Magazine

9/10 100% Wasted! The Story of Food Waste (2017) As this movie clearly illustrates, people need to pay attention. ‐ Paste Magazine

4.8/10 9% Tulip Fever (2017) Things about it are good, and it just isn't. Part of that blames lies with the story, a terribly ponderous and silly affair that gives far too much relevance to billowing cloaks, a drunk guy ... and the general presence of Cara Delevigne‐ Paste Magazine

100% Chasing Coral (2017) I strongly recommend watching Chasing Coral, after which I urge you to please log the hell off and unplug the freaking television. Because seriously, folks. You don't want this.‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 46% Everything, Everything (2017) Everything, Everything is one of the best young adult novels I've read in the last few years, and it has now been made into one of the best teen films I've seen in a while.‐ Paste Magazine

5/10 85% The Death of Louis XIV (La mort de Louis XIV) (2017) We're not in a museum. We're watching a movie. They call them "movies" because they move.‐ Paste Magazine

8.3/10 98% The Last Laugh (2017) The Last Laugh is a multifaceted and extremely thought-provoking documentary about the place of comedy in contending with the Jewish genocide during WWII. ‐ Paste Magazine

6/10 70% Contemporary Color (2017) The result yields a film chock-full of enthusiastic people and talented performances that nonetheless falls short in harnessing the power (and delivering the narrative punch) otherwise present.‐ Paste Magazine

4/10 No Score Yet Decanted. (2016) The blend is off. Or it might even just have the wrong name and label-once you're expecting one thing, getting something else is confusing.‐ Paste Magazine

4.5/10 35% The Great Wall (2017) In other words, it's another tedious special-effects-fest that has flimsy wisps of completely pat and predictable story blowing around interminable swaths of stuff that would 100% kill people but doesn't, and none of the characters are that interesting.‐ Paste Magazine

5.6/10 No Score Yet Me, Myself & Her (Io e lei) (2015) Me, Myself and Her is a mixed bag.‐ Paste Magazine

71% No Pay, Nudity (2016) No Pay, Nudity has a quality that has become increasingly rare in contemporary film: it is profoundly human‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 81% Girl Asleep (2016) Girl Asleep is wall-to-wall quirky, frequently very funny, and occasionally hints at the actual horror of being an adolescent girl in a pretty compelling way.‐ Paste Magazine
