Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016)

"Huppert is the film's chief asset, and her assured performance as Nathalie is a joy to watch." ‐
Posted Dec 9, 2016

Manchester by the Sea (2016)

"It's not a flashy film, nor is it perfect, but there is an honesty and deep-felt compassion that cannot be ignored." ‐
Posted Dec 2, 2016

Nocturnal Animals (2016)

"It's a gorgeously designed work that hides its savage commentary beneath a glossy veneer." ‐
Posted Nov 29, 2016

Arrival (2016)

"Arrival does what science fiction at its best should do: it make us look to the future in a way that allows us to think about the present in new ways." ‐
Posted Nov 29, 2016

Doctor Strange (2016)

"It delivers a fun and at times even thoughtful new entry in the Marvel cinematic universe." ‐
Posted Nov 11, 2016

Gone Girl (2014)

"In a sense, Fincher gives us a perversely perfect first date movie with Gone Girl. It's an in-depth examination of a long-term relationship that makes you wonder if it's possible to really know or trust anyone." ‐
Posted Nov 9, 2016

Berberian Sound Studio (2013)

"Director Peter Strickland makes us hear horror in a new way." ‐
Posted Oct 14, 2016

Compliance (2012)

"Zobel does a great job of just making you uncomfortable, making you want to just yell at the screen and tell the characters to just stop." ‐
Posted Oct 14, 2016

Godzilla Resurgence (Shin Godzilla) (2016)

"Godzilla Resurgence may not be Godzilla at his very best but for fans of the giant monster, it's a welcome relief to have him back in Toho Studio's hands" ‐
Posted Oct 14, 2016

Demon (2016)

"A swift, elegant film about something dark and harrowing resurfacing from the past to cause havoc in the present." ‐
Posted Oct 7, 2016

Don't Breathe (2016)

"The script generally relies on manipulation in order to get everything to play out." ‐
Posted Sep 2, 2016

Morgan (2016)

"Morgan is frustrating because it does exhibit some early promise." ‐
Posted Sep 2, 2016

Hell or High Water (2016)

"Hell or High Water is something rare. It's a film for adults and by that I mean it's smart, it has something to say, and it doesn't condescend to the audience." ‐
Posted Aug 19, 2016

Can We Take a Joke? (2016)

"The ideas presented are more complex than Can We Take A Joke? is able to fully address, but they are ideas that desperately need to be discussed." ‐
Posted Aug 1, 2016

The Infiltrator (2016)

"The film also gives us strong female characters in Diane Kruger's surprisingly savvy young agent and Amy Ryan's tough boss." ‐
Posted Jul 22, 2016

Swiss Army Man (2016)

"A highly inventive, deliciously refreshing and even poignant film." ‐
Posted Jul 8, 2016

The Neon Demon (2016)

"A ravishing piece of cinematic seduction." ‐
Posted Jul 1, 2016

De Palma (2016)

"If you love movies, see De Palma. Then you need to cue up his films and start watching or re-watching his entire filmography." ‐
Posted Jun 17, 2016

Weiner (2016)

"Why? Why? Why? That's the big question that permeates the documentary. It is also what rivets us to the screen." ‐
Posted Jun 10, 2016

The Lobster (2016)

"There is much about this film that I love, and yet I can't embrace it fully. But I adore how Lanthimos creates a kind of ominous oppressiveness combined with a goofy absurdism." ‐
Posted May 27, 2016

Dragon Inn (Long men ke zhen) (1966)

"If you don't know the name King Hu, now's the perfect opportunity to remedy that." ‐
Posted May 20, 2016

Baskin (2016)

"Baskin boasts a darkly seductive visual style and builds tension effectively." ‐
Posted May 13, 2016

Green Room (2016)

"Saulnier gets props for creating a claustrophobic horror film that delivers some hardcore goods. It builds tension well and doesn't flinch from effective gore." ‐
Posted May 5, 2016

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"Highly entertaining." ‐
Posted May 5, 2016

Wild (2014)

"Wild is too artistically tame to get wild about but it's to be appreciated as a a sincere and personal tale of healing." ‐
Posted Apr 26, 2016

Mr. Right (2016)

"For me, there was too much cute and not enough of Rockwell." ‐
Posted Apr 14, 2016

Hardcore Henry (2016)

"The film's not for anyone who gets nauseous watching handheld camera footage or who's looking for insightful drama. This is simply a grade A, 100 percent pure adrenaline fix for action junkies." ‐
Posted Apr 8, 2016

Remember (2016)

"A superb example of Egoyan at his best and most polished." ‐
Posted Apr 1, 2016

Knight of Cups (2016)

"Definitely not a film for everyone and it's not meant to be. But for those of us who worship in Malick's cinematic temple, it rewards our faith." ‐
Posted Mar 18, 2016

The Wave (Bolgen) (2016)

"The film delivers on genre thrills and effects but keeps the drama more down to earth." ‐
Posted Mar 10, 2016

Triple 9 (2016)

"The film serves up a compelling and disturbing tale but it falls short of Hillcoat's best work, The Proposition. But I admire it for sticking to its bleak outlook and not pulling any punches." ‐
Posted Mar 3, 2016

Bone Tomahawk (2015)

"Wow! What a grueling, richly rewarding and meticulously crafted film." ‐
Posted Feb 19, 2016

Hail, Caesar! (2016)

"As with the Coens' other films, a single viewing doesn't always reveal what the film's true intentions and meaning are." ‐
Posted Feb 12, 2016

45 Years (2015)

"An intelligently crafted film in which the pyrotechnics are all in the performances." ‐
Posted Jan 29, 2016

The Revenant (2015)

"I think Iñárritu has something more on his mind than revenge, but the potential complexity of his ending is lost in DiCaprio's hands." ‐
Posted Jan 15, 2016

Carol (2015)

"All of these things add up to create a film where nothing happens by accident and everything enriches the storytelling." ‐
Posted Dec 29, 2015

The Hateful Eight (2015)

"It's the performances and not a resurrected format that make this film worth seeing." ‐
Posted Dec 29, 2015

Youth (2015)

"Italy's Paolo Sorrentino is one of the most exciting filmmakers around." ‐
Posted Dec 21, 2015

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

"Abrams may not have taken a lot of risks - perhaps that's for a later film - but with "The Force Awakens" he's fashioned a perfect sequel that knows exactly where it stands in a galactic-sized franchise." ‐
Posted Dec 16, 2015

Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015)

"It conveys not just the artistry of a popular director but also captures a passion for cinema as a way of life." ‐
Posted Dec 10, 2015

Black Sea (2015)

"This is a case where the dangers of the ocean depths prove far less lethal than a screenwriter with a lack of imagination." ‐
Posted Dec 8, 2015

Spectre (2015)

"It's a solid, serious spy film that still has a playful glint in its eye." ‐
Posted Dec 7, 2015

Experimenter (2015)

"Director Almereyda is as much an experimenter and illusionist as his subject." ‐
Posted Dec 4, 2015

Goodnight Mommy (2015)

"The pay off at the end is not quite as satisfying as I was hoping for but it holds up for the most part and does make for a chilling moment or two." ‐
Posted Dec 4, 2015

Crimson Peak (2015)

"The story quickly grew predictable and bland, and the design of the ghosts and the role they played in the story left me feeling disappointed." ‐
Posted Dec 4, 2015

Trumbo (2015)

"Trumbo is a film with something to say and the passion and wit to say it well." ‐
Posted Dec 4, 2015

James White (2015)

"Both Nixon and Mond invest James White... with a raw honesty that makes James White a compelling drama about the demands and rewards of family." ‐
Posted Dec 3, 2015

Creed (2015)

"Despite being a bit too long, Creed reveals Coogler as a solid writer and director. He manages to remain true to his indie roots while working on a mainstream Hollywood film." ‐
Posted Dec 1, 2015

Kill Me Three Times (2015)

"Kill Me Three Time isn't even worth a single viewing." ‐
Posted Nov 9, 2015

I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story (2015)

"I Am Big Bird is not great filmmaking but it pays fitting tribute to Spinney and the character into which he invested so much of his own personality." ‐
