3.5/5 81% Blade of the Immortal (Mugen no jûnin) (2017) There's philosophy under the surface.‐ National Post

2/5 No Score Yet Stegman Is Dead (2017) By the time the film wraps it's clear there's not much more to enjoy than these few scattered chuckles.‐ National Post

4/5 67% Paradise (Ray) (2017) The director introduces an interesting framing device, interviewing his main characters dressed in plain clothes and facing a camera, the full significance of this reality-show type setup only becoming apparent at the end of the film. ‐ National Post

3.5/5 84% Wonder (2017) Sometimes you have to just let go and surrender yourself to the wonder.‐ National Post

5/5 94% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) McDonagh's genius is evident in the way he tugs and pushes the boundaries of good behaviour, often providing just enough motivation to mess with our sense of what's justified, and when.‐ National Post

3/5 62% The Star (2017) Overall, The Star is content to deliver its news to the faithful. It's not out to change minds, although it does suggest that even a stubborn donkey can find a new purpose at Christmas.‐ National Post

5/5 88% Thelma (2017) The less you know about the film going in the better. Trier's careful direction and screenplay (penned with his writing partner, Eskil Vogt) ensure that we're never lost in the narrative, even as the questions and uncertainties start to pile up.‐ National Post

2/5 40% Justice League (2017) [Justice League] occasionally finds its footing but often stumbles just at the moment it should soar.‐ National Post

1/5 17% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) It you go, it'll cost you one hour and 40 minutes. It just seems longer.‐ National Post

5/5 100% Lady Bird (2017) Lady Bird will definitely hold your attention.‐ National Post

3.5/5 80% My Friend Dahmer (2017) Director Marc Meyers brings a steady gaze and some sterling production values to the picture. It truly looks like 1978 Ohio, where Dahmer went to school. And by treating its subject seriously, we're invited to do the same. ‐ National Post

3/5 67% Infinity Baby (2017) Infinity Baby feels a little underdone. It's good company while it lasts, but before you know it you're on your own again.‐ National Post

4/5 100% Jane (2017) Chuckles aside, the documentary Jane also shows the young scientist dealing with professional and personal adversity.‐ National Post

3.5/5 89% The Divine Order (Die göttliche Ordnung) (2017) The movie is a lovely diversion, and a reminder of how recent some changes to women's rights have been.‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
3.5/5 99% God's Own Country (2017) God's Own Country is a love letter to the land, but also to an unconventional romance, struggling against intolerance.‐ National Post

4/5 98% Dina (2017) This gap is sometimes heartbreaking, occasionally funny and most often both.‐ National Post

2/5 28% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) It may be the season for giving, but I've already given this film two stars (one for Baranksi) and that's enough.‐ National Post

4.5/5 87% Novitiate (2017) Betts navigates a narrow path between praising the Church and damning it. ‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
4/5 80% The Square (2017) Between the long running time, a few loose ends, and a random bonobo in Moss's apartment, The Square doesn't deliver the kind of concentrated thinking person's entertainment as Östlund's previous film. ‐ National Post

3.5/5 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Put your brain in neutral and enjoy!‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
3/5 83% Deliver Us (2017) The director doesn't judge; her doc is shot straight on, with as little editorial bias as she can muster.‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2017
2/5 25% Suburbicon (2017) Ultimately, Suburbicon might have been better split into two movies, with each one given the space it needed to breathe. And isn't that what the suburbs promised?‐ National Post

3/5 72% Wonderstruck (2017) If you can surrender yourself to the movie's charms, there are rewards to be found in this cinematic cabinet of wonders.‐ National Post

3.5/5 77% Thank You for Your Service (2017) The film remains watchable because there's real drama and camaraderie behind its message. ‐ National Post

4/5 93% Human Flow (2017) Ai's message is clear; the refugee crisis may take the form of faceless millions, but each pixel in that image of misery is a human being. It's a lesson worth remembering, and reflecting on.‐ National Post

3/5 40% The Fortress (2017) Without giving too much away, there's something for everyone here. ‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
2.5/5 76% Take Every Wave: The Life of Laird Hamilton (2017) The film ends with a two-minute-and-15-second shot of him on such a board, riding a rolling wave far out in the ocean. It might not be worth the two-hour journey to see it, but what a beautiful image. ‐ National Post

1/5 33% Leatherface (2017) This Chainsaw bites, and not in a good way.‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
1.5/5 8% The Snowman (2017) The plot is a confused mess of dismembered bodies, postcard clues and go-nowhere scenes like the bunny-suited guy who is cleaning mould from Harry's apartment building. ‐ National Post

3.5/5 89% Only the Brave (2017) On the whole, the film balances its moments of relative calm, domestic upset and raw terror. Best of all, it explains the techniques of brush-clearing, controlled burns and "air attack" without turning it into a lesson.‐ National Post

2/5 66% Breathe (2017) It's a lovely romantic story, no question, but one suspects there was more depth and even darkness than we're given in this telling.‐ National Post

4/5 76% Una (2017) It doesn't shy away from the power dynamics at play. ‐ National Post

3.5/5 98% BPM (Beats Per Minute) (120 battements par minute) (2017) The film runs to more than two and a quarter hours, yet the pacing seldom flags.‐ National Post

2/5 32% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) In the end, Felt's real story is more exciting - or at least potentially so - than the version that plays out on the screen.‐ National Post

3/5 76% The Limehouse Golem (2017) The solid cast, including Eddie Marsan as a theatre impresario nicknamed Uncle, and Daniel Mays as Kildare's trusted lieutenant, helps keep the story afloat. ‐ National Post

3.5/5 89% 78/52: Hitchcock's Shower Scene (2017) Even the most informed Hitchcock fan will learn something - for me, it was the realization that when Leigh's character gets in the tub, she first stands beneath the showerhead and THEN turns on the water. Who does that? ‐ National Post

2.5/5 95% The Florida Project (2017) For all that kitschy beauty, I wouldn't want to spend one more minute with Moonee, here or anywhere else.‐ National Post

3/5 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) It must be said that the film offers a soaring conclusion. The story may get a bit lost in its own hundred-acre wood, but it finds its way home eventually.‐ National Post

3.5/5 45% My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) I am neither a seven-year-old girl nor a Bronie (look it up), but I can spot a decent film about anthropomorphic miniature horses when I see one.‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
4/5 98% Lucky (2017) It's a beautiful portrait of a kind of dogged stubbornness in the face of the inevitable.‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
1.5/5 42% The Mountain Between Us (2017) The path of the story and its conclusion are telegraphed early on. When you crash on the top of a mountain, the only way you can go is down.‐ National Post

5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) So let's not call Blade Runner 2049 a sequel. Call it the spiritual successor to one of the greatest science-fiction stories ever told. And it lives up to that billing.‐ National Post

No Score Yet Great Great Great (2017) Great Great Great doesn't quite deserve that three-handed title, but it comes pretty close.‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
2.5/5 80% Loving Vincent (2017) The style of one conversation after another, intercut with black-and-white memories and recreations of events in Van Gogh's life, makes the story play out like a televised police procedural. ‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
No Score Yet White Night (2017) Overall, White Night crafts a convincing portrait of the city - including its homelessness and violence - and manages mostly believable, often amusing interactions among its sprawling cast of characters.‐ National Post

67% Don't Talk to Irene (2017) An above-average entry in the loveable-misfits comic sub-genre, Don't Talk to Irene is the kind of low-budget gem that can get lost in the glare of the Toronto International Film Festival.‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
87% The Midwife (Sage femme) (2017) It's the work of actor-turned-writer/director Martin Provost, whose light touch with the material makes this a made-in-France pleasure. ‐ National Post
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
87% American Made (2017) If comedy is indeed tragedy plus time, then we've had just enough time since the 1980s to chuckle at one of its more tragic narratives.‐ National Post

65% Victoria & Abdul (2017) There may yet come a more documentary account of Victoria's late-life infatuation with one of her subjects. For now, enjoy this one with a grain of salt and a hearty chuckle.‐ National Post
