Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B+ 88% I don't feel at home in this world anymore. (2017) Blair's neo-noir-comedy-thriller is that rare story that seems to have come along at just the right time.‐ Consequence of Sound

C 33% Girlfriend's Day (2017) Stephenson has a rocky time bringing this alternate reality to life, if only because the premise at its core is such an inherently silly (and oddly specific) one.‐ Consequence of Sound

B 65% The Land (2016) The Land is dedicated to exposing the human story behind inner-city crime, and the film deserves credit for exploring a diverse cross-section of humanity.‐ Consequence of Sound

B 70% The Infiltrator (2016) The Infiltrator works best when it sticks to that strange moral grey area that everyone - regardless of their experience busting drug cartels - can relate to.‐ Consequence of Sound

C 87% Belladonna of Sadness (Kanashimi no Beradona) (1973) Belladonna of Sadness is a delirious hodgepodge of ideas that lands somewhere between Faustian fantasy and feminist screed. If you're looking for an experiential analogy, imagine dropping acid before heading into a Women's Studies course.‐ Consequence of Sound

C- 91% Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words (2016) Zappa's fans and true believers will already be familiar with many of these clips, so the most Eat That Question can offer is fresh context. The fact that it seems to actively avoid contextualizing, then, is a problem.‐ Consequence of Sound

D+ 5% The Do-Over (2016) A central plot device in the film is a key that's been stuffed up a corpse's rectum, and that's a decent metaphor for Sandler's Netflix-era output: Sure, it stinks, but it still fits somewhere.‐ Consequence of Sound

C 87% Dheepan (2016) What begins as an uncommonly nuanced portrayal of the immigrant experience ends as a glorified, arthouse version of Taken.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 19, 2016
B- 73% Louder Than Bombs (2016) Louder Than Bombs doesn't provide much catharsis. There are no grand speeches, no violent screaming matches, and only quiet modes of resolution.‐ Consequence of Sound

A 96% Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016) Embrace of the Serpent is a clearly beautiful film, with images as poetic as its study of humanity's destructive impact on the earth and on each other‐ Consequence of Sound

B- 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) Hail, Caesar! satisfies that one criterion that matters most in Hollywood, and will for time immemorial: it's entertaining as hell.‐ Consequence of Sound

C 97% Theeb (2015) Theeb is a frustrating, undeniably beautiful piece of art that gets a lot of things right and a few crucial things wrong‐ Consequence of Sound

B 65% Krampus (2015) Krampus may be the feel-bad movie of the holiday season, but its horrors come gift-wrapped in a surprisingly attractive package.‐ Consequence of Sound

A- 97% Brooklyn (2015) Director John Crowley has fashioned a film that feels like a natural evolution from the Victorian novel, one in which the circumstances are deceptively modern even if everything else feels somewhat old-fashioned.‐ Consequence of Sound

B- 86% Experimenter (2015) ...a strange, disjointed, and occasionally beautiful biopic about the controversial social psychologist Stanley Milgram.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2015
B+ 91% Beasts of No Nation (2015) The world depicted in Beasts is almost certainly like nothing you've ever seen. It will leave you appalled, restless, upset, and emotionally disheveled...‐ Consequence of Sound

C- 55% Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015) Hotel Transylvania needed a sequel about as much as Kevin James needs a hamburger.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2015
B 87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) Straight Outta Compton's ambition occasionally exceeds its grasp, and it's probably too clumsy to be considered a great film. But it never stops feeling important.‐ Consequence of Sound

B+ 97% Tangerine (2015) "Los Angeles is a beautifully wrapped lie," one character says, and Tangerine is perhaps the direct inverse of that: a slippery kind of truth, minus the gift wrapping of a major studio film.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2015
D 16% The Gallows (2015) The Gallows is the kind of film that drives a man to drink after a noontime screening, and it might be what finally turns me off found-footage horror.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jul 9, 2015
D+ 38% The Face Of An Angel (2015) The Face of an Angel takes too many detours and breaches its viewers' trust too many times to be taken seriously. ‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2015
B 75% Rubble Kings (2015) Real life is a messy, bloody, haphazard affair, punctuated by soaring highs and crushing lows. Bless the documentarian who strives to make his work the same.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2015
D+ 32% Poltergeist (2015) Poltergeist's obsession with gimmicks stems from its near-pathological desire to feel "new." It doesn't feel new, and the sad irony is that, 30 years from now, this film will likely feel hopelessly dated. ‐ Consequence of Sound

B+ 98% Iris (2015) Iris is much more a celebration of life than it is a rumination on death, and it packs more laughs into its lean 78 minutes than most comedies manage in two hours.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 14, 2015
D- 23% Little Boy (2015) A confused mess of Christian morality parading as entertainment, and one that no benevolent God would wish upon the world.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2015
C+ 62% The Water Diviner (2015) The Water Diviner is a promising debut. Russell Crowe probably has many years left before he delivers his tour de force, but at least he's given us a tour worth attending.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2015
D+ 31% Desert Dancer (2015) As impressive as its dance sequences may be, Desert Dancer cannot overcome an intellectually lazy script that's as subtle as an eye-high leg kick. ‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2015
A- 99% Song Of The Sea (2014) Song of the Sea is an impressive feat of animation, made all the more enjoyable by the fact that it's not trying to sell anything.‐ Consequence of Sound

A- 89% Mommy (2015) Xavier Donlan extracts astounding levels of emotional depth from his trio of lead actors, all of whom respond to his direction with revelatory performances. ‐ Consequence of Sound
