Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
89% A Ciambra (2017) A film that takes its time and earns its narrative twists gradually.‐ RogerEbert.com

90% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2017) A visually mesmerizing film, even as it captures a nightmarish situation.‐ RogerEbert.com

71% Borg vs McEnroe (Borg McEnroe) (2017) Fails to turn its title characters into three-dimensional people, leaning into their public personas instead of sketching in the details that would make them feel genuine.‐ RogerEbert.com

60% The Lodgers (2017) A near-miss for this hardcore horror and Gothic thriller fan. It tries to get underneath, but remains skin-deep.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
70% On Chesil Beach (2018) A solid drama made from a stellar book, but if you see it even just for the two performances, you won't be disappointed.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
96% I, Tonya (2017) The dark comedy approach to the story of Tonya Harding that you had no idea you needed as badly as you do.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
86% Beast (2017) Features a truly breakthrough performance (maybe two) and announces writer/director Michael Pearce as a talent to watch.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
80% Who We Are Now (2017) Who We Are Now just ticks too many cliched boxes, particularly in the dialogue department.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
92% The Other Side of Hope (Toivon tuolla puolen) (2017) While Kaurismaki's deadpan sense of humor remains, his humanist side feels more prominent than ever before.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
71% The Square (2017) It's a visually striking, well-performed film that some people will adore and others will hate. I suspect it will be divisive, kind of like all great art, and I think that's exactly how Ostlund wants it.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
62% Happy End (2017) It too often feels like Happy End is a bunch of ideas in search of a movie.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
100% Jane (2017) A mesmerizing documentary, filled with incredible footage of Goodall in the field and modern-day interviews, all set to the best score from Philip Glass in years.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
91% Disobedience (2017) I wish the rest of the movie felt as fully realized as [McAdams'] performance because, like the relationship at its center, there's potential here for something beautiful that feels just out of reach.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
79% Thelma (2017) A beautifully modulated thriller, and it comes with a message that feels valuable-it's not homosexuality that will bring about the devil but its repression.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
86% The Third Murder (Sandome no satsujin) (2017) A good film that falls short of the masterful director's best work by virtue of being too leadenly plotted in the second half, when it turns into a surprisingly flat courtroom drama.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
55% Manhunt (2017) It's a dozen movies thrown into a blender, but Woo didn't hit 'puree' long enough.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
No Score Yet Revenge (2017) Ample style, remarkable tension, decidedly French black humor, and more blood than I believe the human body actually contains.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
92% Bodied (2017) Offers an entertaining window into a culture that most people probably know very little about, but it's also a clever take on a generation more aware of what's offensive and what's not than any before.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
94% The Disaster Artist (2017) Franco remains one of the most fascinating performers of his generation, even if his directing ability needs a little work.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
60% The Ritual (2017) Starts with an effective inciting incident but devolves into something that feels overly familiar.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
20% Downrange (2017) Downrange sees the director of Versus and Midnight Meat Train saddled with an inexperienced cast, a tin ear for dialogue, and a thin premise.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
No Score Yet The Crescent (2017) No energy, no rhythm, and no atmosphere, unless you think paint swirls and cellos are terrifying.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
90% Mom & Dad (2017) Kind of feels like half a movie and only half of that is any good.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
88% Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres!) (2017) If this is your thing, if you loved their previous movies, don't miss one. If you see film more as a storytelling vehicle than a visual medium, avoid it.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 67% mother! (2017) At times horrifying, at times riveting, at times baffling, and at times like nothing you've ever seen before.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
94% First Reformed (2017) A film of fascinating conversations, anchored by Hawke's completely genuine performance.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
83% Darkest Hour (2017) An acting exercise weighed down by costumes, make-up, and over-lighting that has a few things to say about the backbone of a great world leader but nothing you haven't really heard before.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
1.5/4 42% Suburbicon (2017) This startling misfire is a tonal disaster from start to finish.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
96% The Shape of Water (2017) One of [del Toro's] deepest, most complex, most rewarding, and flat-out beautiful films.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
4/4 97% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) One of those truly rare films that feels both profound and grounded; inspirational without ever manipulatively trying to be so.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
2.5/4 86% Battle of the Sexes (2017) There's a better version of Battle of the Sexes that focuses even more fully on King, villainizing Riggs and his grotesque culture of sexism in a way this movie disappointingly seems scared to do.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2017
2/4 71% Breathe (2017) The performances and the inherent power of the true story keep it from being a complete disaster, but one hopes Serkis moves on to more challenging material with his follow-up.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2017
68% Downsizing (2017) Throughout Downsizing, I kept asking myself what the point of all of this was, never engaged by its hodgepodge of themes. I wish the filmmakers had asked that question too.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
3/4 95% Stronger (2017) Stronger transcends your standard inspirational drama mostly through two fantastic performances, but also in the way it understands that trauma isn't inspirational to the people who suffer it.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
3.5/4 79% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) With uniformly great performances throughout the cast and Lanthimos' stunning eye for detail and composition, this is one of the most unforgettable films of the year.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
4/4 97% The Florida Project (2017) A film of small notes that combine to form something major, the kind of movie that sneaks up on you and sticks with you‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
2/4 26% The Vault (2017) Ultimately, The Vault isn't silly enough to be horrendously memorable or tense enough to be effective as the genre exercise it could have been. It falls into that underdeveloped gap in the middle.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
1/4 42% Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) A movie that lacks the energy, wit and heart of its predecessor and is the kind of project that probably never should have happened.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
1.5/4 52% England Is Mine (2017) For the majority, Lowden feels restrained by a director who has a very specific, flat vision of a musical legend.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
1/4 40% Death Note (2017) The ending will have you switching off your Netflix app in disgust. If you don't die from boredom before you get there.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
3/4 98% In This Corner of the World (Kono sekai no katasumi ni) (2017) An elegant reminder that we can never forget what life during wartime does to the human soul.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
2/4 59% What Happened to Monday (2017) Wirkola stages a few excellent set pieces and Rapace is fantastic, but the general lack of entertainment value has to be considered disappointing given the potential of the entire piece.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
1.5/4 0% Naked (2017) Tiddes never leans into the insanity of his concept in a way that makes it work. Believe it or not, it's too boring.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
3/4 68% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Has echoes of the original film, and works more with mood and less with cheap scares than either Annabelle or The Conjuring 2, resulting in a truly effective genre flick.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
3.5/4 88% Good Time (2017) Good Time is a movie that can't sit still, and I mean that in the best possible way. There's a palpable sense of anxiety and panic that comes through in every heated frame.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
2/4 81% 68 Kill (2017) The kind of piece that needs to move 100MPH from first scene to last for you to overlook its flaws. It slows down for too long to recommend the ride.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
3/4 91% Icarus (2017) An imperfect film ... but the pacing of the final 3/4s of Icarus is remarkable, as we watch a man's life and safety circle the drain.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
1.5/4 16% The Dark Tower (2017) More forgettable than loathsome, the kind of movie that occasionally rubs salt in your wounds by reminding you what could have been, but mostly just dissipates from memory as it's playing.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
2.5/4 78% Brigsby Bear (2017) It often feels as if Brigsby Bear has such an 'unusual' concept that the creators were then scared to lean into it, making everything about its delivery feel like it's designed to soften the sharp edges and lighten its darker tones.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
3.5/4 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) A shockingly memorable movie, the kind that gets better as you dissect and discuss how much it does right after the lights have gone up.‐ RogerEbert.com
