T-Meter Title | Year
98% The Lighthouse (2019) The Lighthouse is a dizzying, joyous celebration, a riot of smell and clanging noise dressed up in formally austere arthouse clothing, whose unsettling crescendo of derangement pushes the spectator into a state of semi-rapture. - Pajiba EDIT

82% Port Authority (2019) Lessovitz has promise but might need to find a less touchy subject for her next outing as a director. - Pajiba EDIT

83% Share (2019) Bianco handles this tricky material with immense care and judiciousness, choosing to refract the violence and trauma in inventive ways - in part, she manages to internalize these facets through the candid performance that she elicits from her lead actor. - Pajiba EDIT

89% Bull (2019) "Lost souls who find solace in each other" is such a hoary old subject for a film, but with Bull Annie Silverstein manages to find something fresh and involving in the format, not least because she mostly manages to avoid cliche. - Pajiba EDIT

53% The Dead Don't Die (2019) Nothing comes to compensate for the script's tired routines, neither in terms of visual spectacle, or wit, or insights. - Pajiba EDIT

100% The Climb (2019) Covino displays tremendous promise with this first film, which sits like an oddity in the landscape of current American cinema, and this flawed movie is a worthy calling card for a clearly searching mind. - Pajiba EDIT

90% Capernaum (Capharnaüm) (2018) Some will find the film's politics belaboured, but Labaki has earned the right, with her fully evidenced inquiry into destitution, to ram points home. - Sight and Sound EDIT

100% Leave No Trace (2018) There's a lot to watch and enjoy in this film that takes the time to look at faces properly and that constructs a totally believable world of misfits and underdogs. - Pajiba EDIT

96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Alongside this jarring tonal mishmash, Lee seems to have forgotten to throw any filmmaking smarts at the movie, which results in scenes that peter out, poorly edited musical choices, ugly split-screen, and a truly bizarre shot selection... - Pajiba EDIT

98% BPM (Beats Per Minute) (120 battements par minute) (2017) The confidence and clarity of Robin Campillo's writing is evident from the film's opening scene. - Sight and Sound EDIT
