91% City Of Gold (2016) "Gold's decades of writing on LA's food scene are as much a story of immigration and the American dream as they are tacos and curry - and they'll make you very, very hungry. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Mar 17, 2016
46% Knight of Cups (2016) "As beautifully (though in my case nauseatingly) photographed as ever, putting a rich, moving (literally moving) sheen on a hollow story. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Mar 4, 2016
68% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) "Aside from a couple of tone-deaf casting choices, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is a funny and illuminating story of female empowerment in the malest of environments. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Mar 4, 2016
19% Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (2016) "A sequel that, this many years hence, no one was clamoring for. " ‐ L.A. Biz

Posted Feb 26, 2016
98% Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016) "A beautiful meditation on memories and dreams, and an excoriating indictment on cultures lost. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Feb 26, 2016
61% Race (2016) "An inspiring, feel-good story with a deferential protagonist perhaps more palatable to those who took issue with Beyoncé's politically charged Super Bowl performance. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Feb 26, 2016
78% Where to Invade Next (2016) "[Moore's] findings - on workers' rights and women leaders, on education and school lunches, on prison systems and drug policies - are at once enlightening and depressing. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Feb 12, 2016
84% Deadpool (2016) "An antihero who's sarcastic, profane, self-aware and funny as hell, a cathartic break from the portentous comic-book flicks saturating the release slate these days. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Feb 12, 2016
59% Eisenstein In Guanajuato (2016) "A film by a cineaste for cineastes, "Eisenstein" ... reveals less about the filmmaker's style behind the camera than between the sheets. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Feb 4, 2016

Posted Feb 4, 2016
93% 2016 Oscar Nominated Shorts - Live Action (2016) "Of the five, "Everything Will Be Okay" delivers the biggest punch to the gut. ... Young actress Julia Pointner in her first credited role is a stunning discovery. " ‐ L.A. Biz

Posted Jan 22, 2016

Posted Jan 8, 2016

Posted Dec 11, 2015
43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "The structure puts the climactic action in the middle of the movie. Nothing that follows can live up to that raggedy bull cracking the "Essex" like a nut. " ‐ L.A. Biz

Posted Nov 6, 2015
65% Spectre (2015) "007's most personal mission yet ironically fails to inspire an emotional response, and its creepy Octopussy-themed credits and outdated sexual mores are frustratingly passé. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Nov 6, 2015
29% Burnt (2015) "Director John Wells deftly navigates the trajectory of the story, helped by Rob Simonsen's frothy score. " ‐ L.A. Biz

Posted Oct 16, 2015
91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "A vigorously patriotic film, touting the American justice system and constitutionally protected human rights, without demonizing the other side. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Oct 16, 2015
27% Pan (2015) "Pan's playful design and cultural anachronisms present intriguing ideas amid a rather pedestrian script. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Oct 9, 2015
86% Steve Jobs (2015) "Rigorous cinema at its finest, wielding dialogue, setting, cinematography, editing and performance to create ... an "impressionistic portrait" of the face of Apple. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Oct 9, 2015
84% The Walk (2015) "It's worth wading through the hokey first act to get to the planning and execution of the scheme and especially the stunt itself. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Oct 2, 2015
92% The Martian (2015) "A stunning piece of filmmaking by director Ridley Scott, who, with D.P. Dariusz Wolski, has created a fearsome yet alluring Mars landscape. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Oct 2, 2015

Posted Sep 25, 2015
73% Everest (2015) "The views of course, are stunning, and Kormákur and D.P. Salvatore Totino wield the camera to give a dizzying perspective on what the climbers are up against. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Sep 18, 2015
75% Black Mass (2015) "Depp is electric in the role, not least because of the physical transformation of the dark-haired, dark-eyed actor into a man so pale and blonde he's nicknamed "Whitey." " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Sep 18, 2015
86% Goodnight Mommy (2015) "Austerely photographed and sparsely, ethereally scored, Goodnight Mommy is a haunting feature debut. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Sep 11, 2015

Posted Sep 11, 2015
76% Steve Jobs: Man in the Machine (2015) "The movie comes off as less a portrait of a complicated man than a pendulum swing from deity to devil. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Sep 4, 2015
45% A Walk In The Woods (2015) "For as profound an experience as it portrays, A Walk in the Woods in retrospect feels as slight as its title. " ‐ L.A. Biz
