3/5 88% Whitney (2018) Much more a portrait of Whitney and the Houstons than a focused survey of the woman and her remarkable career.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

3/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) The tight-knit ensemble delivers a fun, small-scale caper that's delightfully self-contained.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

3/5 67% Ocean's 8 (2018) Ocean's 8 is a good heist flick and comedy, but more so it's a first-rate fairy tale of crashing one of the world's most exclusive famous people parties.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

3.5/5 86% Alex Strangelove (2018) Combining elements from everybody-must-get-laid film franchises like Porky's and American Pie, with the suburban melodrama of John Hughes romances, Alex Strangelove finds novel and occasionally hilarious ways to spin the familiar into something fresh.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

Read More | Posted May 24, 2018
45% Measure of a Man (2018) Coming-of-age dramedy isn't that original, but still manages to be a sweet summer tale.‐ Film Journal International

3/5 86% Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (2018) The editing and chronology are fluid, and demand that viewers just keep up... what this film does well is capture the artist at work.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

3/5 85% Disobedience (2018) Peeking through the obvious melodrama are brilliant facets of truth to keep the story grounded. ‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

94% RBG (2018) Beyond lighthearted looks at Notorious R.B.G. memes and t-shirts, the film states a more urgent case examining the substance of Ginsburg's life and legal career.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

11% Kings (2018) Strange and evocative, but not really satisfying.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
4/5 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Somehow nearly every story that's been started in this cinematic universe gets serviced. That's no small feat for a series that centers on more than a dozen different characters, and yet still manages to make every one of them count. ‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

74% Little Pink House (2018) A levelheaded nurse fights to save her home and neighborhood from demolition in this disjointed but still-affecting drama.‐ Film Journal International

82% Beirut (2018) Set in war-torn Lebanon, the hostage thriller Beirut is frustratingly murky both in its message and its mise en scène.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2018
4/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) A Quiet Place achieves a certain grace through its sound design and cinematography in adopting the various family members' perspectives on silence, particularly that of daughter Regan, who happens to be deaf and is portrayed by Simmonds, who is deaf.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
70% Finding Your Feet (2018) Much like a laughably slow-paced vehicular getaway that putters through mid-movie, Finding Your Feet doesn't reach full speed.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
79% What We Started (2018) What We Started hauls out some of EDM's biggest guns for this solid documentary overview of dance-music DJs.‐ Film Journal International
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
3/5 80% Unsane (2018) Ultimately, Unsane takes on the gleeful pace of a slasher pic, and even provides a meaty role, as Sawyer's concerned mom, for Amy Irving, an Oscar-nominated actress well-acquainted with cinematic suspense.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

39% Gringo (2018) Only intermittently amusing.‐ Film Journal International

3/5 83% Game Night (2018) Jesse Plemons nearly steals the movie as Max and Annie's freshly-divorced cop neighbor Gary, who's all kinds of funny... The co-directors might overdo the heartfelt interludes, but they add just the right amount of Gary to the insane mix.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

3.5/5 80% The Party (2018) Although the characters tend to fit too tidily into types... the performances add dimension that deepens the mounting mysteries. The revelations start to trickle out, pouring forth to the point of deluge.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

57% The Young Karl Marx (Le jeune Karl Marx) (2018) An intellectually engaging, if not terribly exciting, biography of Marx and his cronies launching a movement.‐ Film Journal International

4/5 94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) Penetrating and poignant, A Fantastic Woman speaks with Marina's powerful, daring voice, sounding a clarion call demanding she be treated with dignity and respect, and on behalf of all the LGBTQ fighters who refuse to be erased.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2018
No Score Yet Above & Beyond Acoustic: Giving Up The Day Job (2018) The film is preachy, too, in its own way, using images of mesmerized concert attendees to proselytize on behalf of loving this band.‐ Film Journal International

Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
3/5 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Phantom Thread is extremely well made - it's a rich confection, salty and sweet - but it has an ending many will outright despise.‐ Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
75% Sheikh Jackson (2018) Quiet drama Sheikh Jackson tells a coming-of-age story and a come-back-to-God story that barely meet in the middle. ‐ Film Journal International
