8/10 62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) As with all dramatized stories of real lives, artistic license hammers messy reality into a watchable film. Dramas are not documentaries. The essential emotions of Freddie's life and the history of the band are here. ‐ Film Threat

7/10 No Score Yet Trouble Is My Business (2017) Tom Konkle's Trouble is My Business is a revisit to the thrilling days of yesteryear black and white crime drama in the tradition of The Maltese Falcon and a generation of films like it.‐ Film Threat

7/10 86% Mountain (2018) The actors sell it amazingly well without words. Wam Siluka, Jr in the lead is particularly striking in his ability to register nuances in facial expression to fill the verbal gap. ‐ Film Threat

5/10 No Score Yet The Dawnseeker (2018) After 90 minutes trying to determine why this film exists, I've got nothing. I took a cheap CGI plasma rifle bullet for you, dear viewer. Learn from my mistake.‐ Film Threat

8/10 79% The Forest of the Lost Souls (A Floresta das Almas Perdidas) (2018) While the runtime is a bit short at just a little over an hour, it works well. There's no wasted motion or extraneous dialog. The film is exactly what it should be.‐ Film Threat

7/10 100% Her Composition (2015) The film is engaging, a quiet study in artistic genius and inspiration as well as an observation on empowerment.‐ Film Threat

7/10 85% The Captain (Der Hauptmann) (2018) The film-craft is high quality, with the passion and care taken evident. Schwentke brings the brutal winter during wartime to realistic life.‐ Film Threat

5/10 No Score Yet No Postage Necessary (2018) In summary, a romantic comedy/hacker heist turns sticky sweet positive affirmation meme. ‐ Film Threat

7/10 78% Dark River (2018) The film is beautifully executed with grace and lavish cinematography. Tone plays a crucial part in Dark River.‐ Film Threat

6/10 No Score Yet 6 Dynamic Laws for Success (In Life, Love & Money) (2018) Black and white in Indie film has become a gimmicky and pretentious signature at this point, but director Gregory Bayne uses it here to great effect to maximize his production value and give the film an interesting noir patina.‐ Film Threat

5/10 No Score Yet How Long Will I Love U (2018) The film begins with a cool initial conceit, but is then executed out of step with the American audience, immediately dating itself. Perhaps we've done enough time travel for now.‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet No Alternative (2018) Dickerson seamlessly blends a coming-of-age tragedy with the transitioning music scene of the mid '90's and a push for awareness of the stigma around mental illness.‐ Film Threat

8/10 89% Pass Over (2018) Nwandu's dialog shapes street language into poetry and a compelling narrative, unique to these men and this place.‐ Film Threat

8/10 60% Always at the Carlyle (2018) I highly recommend spending time with Always at the Carlyle. There's great joy in the history with the Carlyle staff, music over the years, and fun times had in one of the most amazing of places.‐ Film Threat

6/10 71% Flames (2017) Taking a step back: the last half hour saves the film, framing the relationship and the story with narrative distance and objectivity. If you were stuck watching only the first hour it would be infuriatingly pointless. ‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet Goran (2016) Goran is a tight, darkly humorous, extremely violent drama about passions run amok in the Croatian highland winter when a birthday party goes horribly awry.‐ Film Threat

6/10 60% American Circumcision (2018) If you're a person who cleaves to evidence based science, it's a hard film to watch because the scientific method takes a beating in all the emotional histrionics.‐ Film Threat

6/10 No Score Yet Ravens (2017) Grey death hangs over this film as though the reaper himself were lounging just off-camera. Skillful cinematography does frame those grey shades of the decaying farm beautifully.‐ Film Threat

6/10 No Score Yet Glossary of Broken Dreams (2018) Johannes Grenzfurthner makes films and has given us 97 head-spinning minutes of core dump rage and frustration that is also entertaining and witty.‐ Film Threat

9/10 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) Isle of Dogs is a densely detailed gift to enthusiasts of many esoteric domains...A master filmmaker at the peak of his powers created this art for you with a cast and crew of equally fine performers and artisans. ‐ Film Threat

7/10 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Boyega's trademark energetic charm and swagger grounds the whole film, making it fun and lively.‐ Film Threat

7/10 No Score Yet Thy Kingdom Come (2018) [Javier Bardem] becomes the perfect neutral sounding board where they can express the depths of their pain. If it is a performance, it's a great one, same as you'd expect from a priest.‐ Film Threat

8/10 46% Allure (2018) This is an exquisite portrait of human suffering. Particularly for first-time writer/directors the film is a marvel, a brilliant objet d'art that is incredibly unpleasant to watch.‐ Film Threat

9/10 87% Alt-Right: Age of Rage (2018) No person of conscience can watch this film without wanting to stand and howl in rage.‐ Film Threat

5/10 36% The Chamber (2018) Another flaw is that the script borrows heavily... ok, let's be honest, practically cribs it's entire plot from James Cameron's 1989 film The Abyss...Overall, despite some good moments, The Chamber is a near miss.‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet Perfect Bid: The Contestant Who Knew Too Much (2017) Even if you're not a game show fan, this film is fascinating.‐ Film Threat

7/10 90% The Last Dalai Lama? (2017) Lemle's exceptional film frames the life of the Dalai Lama, his Buddhist spiritual journey, and the future of Tibet in terms of the political situation in China and explains how this might play out.‐ Film Threat

8/10 No Score Yet Above & Beyond Acoustic: Giving Up The Day Job (2018) The film is agreeable and light...This film will work best with a good sound system turned up loud. Come for the stylish brit-pop, stay for the EDM experience.‐ Film Threat

9/10 No Score Yet Point of No Return (2017) Noel Dockstader and Quinn Kanaly have created a beautiful document of a dream given form. ‐ Film Threat

6/10 No Score Yet Coffee (CaffĂ©) (2018) The film is an ambitious and interesting novelty that succeeds moderately well.‐ Film Threat

6/10 59% Entanglement (2018) Annoyingly, the idea evaporates in the third act twists and turns...it's light diversion that aspires to the glory of its quirky rom-com ancestors but misses the mark by taking itself too seriously. It's also tonally off in the approach to mental illness.‐ Film Threat

6/10 30% The Clapper (2018) I expect shade will be thrown because of the film's low ambition, and it truly is (intentionally?) sloppy and doesn't have great production values, but the benchmark for stories is whether they can touch an audience and The Clapper does. ‐ Film Threat

6/10 No Score Yet Buttleman (Harold Buttleman, Daredevil Stuntman) (2002) John Hawkes is always a power source on screen and Harold Buttleman is worth seeing for this early performance.‐ Film Threat

6/10 79% American Folk (2018) The actors are both accomplished folk musicians, so the music is amazing. The film is quiet and peaceful as they journey in a forced slow pace back to the epicenter.‐ Film Threat

8/10 74% Bernard and Huey (2018) Mirvish has stylishly blended the past and present for a comfortable vibe that makes the film fun and cool despite the ridiculous relationship chaos swirling around.‐ Film Threat

8/10 100% Pick of the Litter (2018) Hardy and Nachman's film is the uncommon near-perfect documentary: the filmic elements fade, done so well the viewer focuses on the dogs and their journey.‐ Film Threat

3/10 No Score Yet Back at the Staircase (2018) Think The Big Chill with no sympathetic characters or story you care about. This might translate better as a stage play.‐ Film Threat

3/10 No Score Yet The Bill Murray Experience (2017) This is not a film so much as an extended video blog entry.‐ Film Threat

7/10 76% In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) (2017) Katja's story is heartbreaking and intimate. Akin pulls no punches as you watch it spiral toward the dramatic climax.‐ Film Threat

6/10 82% Love and Saucers (2017) The doc has no framing mechanism, it's an hour of Huggins talking or other UFO believers talking about him. We are never told whether the filmmaker is a UFO believer or not. This is problematic. ‐ Film Threat

7/10 62% The Tribes of Palos Verdes (2017) The Tribes of Palos Verdes is one version of a story you've seen before. Sometimes cautionary tales bear repeating and when it's this beautifully photographed you'll be drawn in quickly and enjoy the ennui with the California sunsets.‐ Film Threat
