No Score Yet The Ataxian (2016) "The Ataxian" has moments of inspiration, beauty, even euphoria. But its lasting contribution is in making the world a little more familiar with this disease, and a little less lonely for the families struggling against it.‐ New York Times

No Score Yet The Rolling Stones: Olé Olé Olé! - A Trip Across Latin America (2016) Directed slickly by Paul Dugdale, "Olé" is less a concert film or travelogue than a historical account - swiftly, smartly assembled, reflecting events only six months old.‐ New York Times

94% Starving The Beast (2016) Academics used to joke that campus politics were so vicious because the stakes were so small. That's no longer the case, at least where the stakes are concerned, as "Starving the Beast" makes clear.‐ New York Times

88% Other People (2016) Inherently melodramatic, the film belongs to Ms. Shannon, who vividly etches Joanne in a full end-of-life range: funny, loving, angry, regretful, exhausted, resigned.‐ New York Times

93% I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016) A well-filmed indie that doesn't let its low budget get in the way of some true chills.‐ New York Times

33% Operation Chromite (2016) The wooden dialogue gives Liam Neeson little to do beyond bite on his corncob pipe and berate subordinates who dare question him.‐ New York Times

20% The Brooklyn Banker (2016) So much pedigree, so little payoff.‐ New York Times

71% Ants on a Shrimp (2016) Mr. Redzepi is a restless soul, and Maurice Dekkers's engaging "Ants on a Shrimp" follows him on an adventure that seems almost recklessly impulsive.‐ New York Times

29% Outlaws and Angels (2016) Virtually every character has a dark side, and every victim has it coming. That gets old, too.‐ New York Times

57% Free to Run (2016) "Free to Run" prefers nothing more than an easy jog down memory lane.‐ New York Times

91% Last Cab To Darwin (2016) Smartly directed by Jeremy Sims, this sweet-hearted film mostly manages to avoid triteness even as it casually packs an emotional punch.‐ New York Times

45% Phantom of the Theatre (2016) Like one of its unfortunate acrobats, the movie spins out of control.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 5, 2016
100% Class Divide (2016) What "Class Divide" does exceptionally well is capture the sense of change at warp speed. In their bones, the public-housing kids know that it's only a matter of time before they're forced to leave.‐ New York Times

67% Marinoni: The Fire in the Frame (2016) For all the access he grants, Mr. Marinoni is not very open. It's left to his fans to attest to his bikes' superior quality - and his cranky ways.‐ New York Times

No Score Yet The Birth of Saké (2016) "The Birth of Sake" is an engrossing introduction to the traditional cultivation of the rice-based alcohol that is part of Japan's cultural heritage. But the film's true focus is an endangered way of life.‐ New York Times

93% A Space Program (2016) As a tribute to NASA, "A Space Program" is rich in the core elements that have always propelled humanity's flights of fancy: imagination and the right tools.‐ New York Times

55% Hyena Road (2016) "Hyena Road" is a skillfully filmed reminder, if one is needed, about why Afghanistan earned its status as the "graveyard of empires."‐ New York Times

No Score Yet A Strange Course Of Events (2016) The unexamined life is not worth living, but "A Strange Course of Events" reminds us that the inspected one is not always worth watching.‐ New York Times

92% Requiem For The American Dream (2016) This well-paced and cogent seminar spotlights a man who, now 87, seems at the height of his intellectual powers.‐ New York Times

67% All Mistakes Buried (2016) Mr. Trammell's drug-induced stammers and tics don't by themselves add up to a compelling portrayal, nor is this drama of the down and out at all gripping.‐ New York Times

56% Noma: My Perfect Storm (2015) Less a documentary than a glittering souvenir, but it's still a record of a legend.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Dec 17, 2015
50% Mojin - The Lost Legend (2015) "Mojin" wastes some fine actors ... on predictable, one-dimensional characters, and once the tomb is entered, the underground sets become all but interchangeable. What starts eerie becomes strictly cartoonish.‐ New York Times

No Score Yet The Genital Warriors (2015) The movie just barely avoids being insufferable because of its low-key humor and quick pace.‐ New York Times

93% Censored Voices (2015) An essential amendment to the historical record, "Censored Voices" reminds us that no war is entirely virtuous and makes clear that, even at the time, the dangers of becoming an occupying force were evident.‐ New York Times

93% Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict (2015) Ms. Vreeland has paced her documentary well, a chapter to each era, with hundreds of beautiful images spanning decades of artists, galleries, parties, scenes.‐ New York Times

94% Palio (2015) Despite its oversights, the film - shot and scored beautifully - is an enthusiastic introduction to this delirious event and its peposo of passion, style and intrigue.‐ New York Times

95% How To Change The World (2015) This absorbing account is hardly definitive, but it teaches movement building without denying the high costs paid by true believers.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2015
No Score Yet City Slickers Can't Stay with Me, the Coach Bob Larsen Story (2015) The director, Robert Lusitana, who ran for Larsen himself, has assembled a touching celebration of a coach and mentor.‐ New York Times

50% Mi America (2015) "Mi America" is not just about a murder case but about how residents of divided communities share a history and deal with one another, sometimes hopefully, always warily.‐ New York Times

No Score Yet Homemakers (2015) Ms. McKeon throws herself into this amped, exhausting role, but in the end, as her bandmates know, a little Irene goes a long way.‐ New York Times

73% Unbranded (2015) What lingers ... are stirring vistas of the backcountry West, and admiration - for the Aggies' achievement, Mr. Masters's imagination and Mr. Baribeau's skill in chronicling it all.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Oct 8, 2015
100% Western (2015) A layered, atmospheric chronicle of living traditions like bullfights and rodeos, mariachi bands and Texas two-steps.‐ New York Times

100% Wildlike (2015) The "Wildlike" landscapes are exhilarating, but when the film works, it's because of the interiors.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2015
64% The Man Who Saved the World (2015) "I was just at the right place at the right time," Mr. Petrov says, a simple truth that becomes shocking when considering the alternative. For that alone, this account of a Cold War near miss deserves a wide audience.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2015
100% Songs From The North (2015) Scattering history lessons and ambiguous imagery amid Ms. Yoo's engagement with North Koreans, her film implicitly asks: What must they think of us?‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2015
No Score Yet The Moving Creatures (2015) A chilling reminder that a simple life is no shield against the disastrous or the devastating, and that the parent-child relationship is at least as essential to the parent as it is to the child.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2015
0% Chloe & Theo (2015) There's a line between a narrative that's deliberately simple and one that's painfully childish, and it's not all that fine. But it's one "Chloe & Theo" crosses repeatedly.‐ New York Times

No Score Yet Fever (2015) Ultimately feels unsatisfying.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2015
45% No Escape (2015) Among the most terrifying scenes is an early shot of Mr. Brosnan in the hotel bar, shouting lyrics to a Huey Lewis tune. Oh, the horror.‐ New York Times

73% Slow Learners (2015) Only a few scenes fail to draw laughs in a movie that's unexpectedly smart and consistently amusing.‐ New York Times

94% Rosenwald (2015) [A] rich and fascinating biography.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2015
47% One & Two (2015) The film tries, unsuccessfully, to walk the same eerie, atmospheric trail as "The Village" by M. Night Shyamalan, or any number of Stephen King works.‐ New York Times

65% That Sugar Film (2015) The food-doc shelf is crowded with good-for-you movies, including "Fed Up," "Fast Food Nation," "Food Inc." and, yes, "Super Size Me." "That Sugar Film" is a worthy addition, entertaining while informing.‐ New York Times

10% Paulo Coelho's Best Story (2015) To be fair, dramatizing an author's process is never easy: Paulo bangs away on his typewriter, smokes, tosses pages.‐ New York Times

35% Ardor (2015) "Ardor" lacks tension, maybe because the actors are playing archetypes: Little is said, and there are few surprises.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2015
100% Famous Nathan (2015) A portrait of a classic rags-to-riches success, and a tough boss who was fanatical about the quality of his fare and the speed of its delivery.‐ New York Times

92% Mala Mala (2015) While affirming the dignity of its subjects, "Mala Mala" shows there's little glamour attached to the pursuit of selfhood.‐ New York Times
