A- 100% 3 And 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets (2015) While "Justice for Jordan" may have been served, the words - and Davis' story - are yet another reminder of a nation that remains fractured by inequality, desperately in need of change. - indieWire EDIT

B 89% What Happened, Miss Simone? (2015) We may now have jarring insights into the mother, the activist and the tortured soul at the root of Simone's career, but it's the legendary songstress who ultimately shines through. - indieWire EDIT

B+ 82% Jagga Jasoos (2017) Where visuals, tone and treatment are concerned, Basu has given us a film unlike anything we've seen in recent Indian cinema, proving, if nothing else, the endless possibilities of a boundless imagination. - indieWire EDIT

C 21% Tubelight (2017) Ultimately, the film asks us to just "believe" in way too much else that's indigestible. - indieWire EDIT

C 50% Irada (2017) In not knowing whether it wants to be a heartfelt, chilling or activist story, Irada ends up being none, suggesting that perhaps good intentions aren't always enough. - indieWire EDIT

C 50% Dishoom (2016) It amounts to little more than frothy summertime entertainment-occasionally fun, but almost immediately forgettable. - indieWire EDIT

C+ 38% Mohenjo Daro (2016) This is a movie of remarkable scale; on the level of sheer craftsmanship, it offers some appeal. If only Gowarikar had put the same level of effort into the story. - indieWire EDIT

C+ 92% Slow West (2015) While that makes for an intriguing experiment, the results are at times befuddling -- and, even more often, underwhelming. - indieWire EDIT

B+ 53% The D Train (2015) The screenplay for The D Train, which is rooted in humor, lends itself to an entertaining take on a worthy, if not entirely original, message. - indieWire EDIT
