76% The Ballad of Lefty Brown (2017) Moshe relates his tale of can-do vengeance with an unfussy clarity and an obvious fondness for the oaters of yesterday's Hollywood - an affection that ... imparts a winning sincerity.‐ Village Voice

67% Kaleidoscope (2017) Studiously crafted and dutifully unsettling scenes with conclusions that are either emotionally obvious or needlessly muddied.‐ Village Voice

94% 1945 (2017) The resultant sensation of uncomfortable prying underlines the boiling suspicions that power the plot.‐ Village Voice

50% Killing Gunther (2017) It's little more than a diverting sketch, but its characters justify its ninety minutes, and Killam's unremitting enthusiasm is occasionally contagious.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
85% Sylvio (2017) A work of gentle whimsy and surprising pathos, Sylvio proposes a buddy-comedy scenario involving a most unlikely screen pair.‐ Village Voice

No Score Yet Cinema Novo (2016) In the end, Rocha succeeds at communicating the restless spirit - if not quite the underlying substance - of the movement he documents.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2017
77% Crown Heights (2017) Most of Crown Heights ... suffers from structural confusion.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
89% Marjorie Prime (2017) Leave it to Michael Almereyda to make a science fiction movie that consists of little more than scenes of two characters talking in plushly appointed living rooms.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2017
96% Unforgiven (1992) Unforgiven is a stark western in slow motion, obsessed with reflection, not action.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2017
70% Water and Sugar: Carlo Di Palma, the Colours of Life (2016) Water and Sugar misses the mark. Instead of close readings, or even just a clean, simple biographical sketch, the movie proceeds rather like a celebrity version of Guess Who?‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
70% Bleed For This (2016) Teller's fierce evocation of the man's extreme, at times uncomfortable resolve makes Bleed for This the rare boxing movie in which watching the hero win is difficult.‐ Village Voice

46% Dog Eat Dog (2016) Why watch the nihilistic Dog Eat Dog ... when Schrader has made so many other movies that deal far more tenderly - and equally brutally - with characters of a similar ilk - his criminals, outsiders and losers?‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2016
78% American Honey (2016) Most of American Honey sees Arnold either mounting vague attempts at naturalistic detail or satisfying more facile, disingenuous instincts.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2016
86% Sully (2016) The movie is more than worth seeing ...‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2016
98% Hell or High Water (2016) Hell or High Water's deliberate pacing gives it the feel of a heist story with its feet stuck in mud - and that's a good thing.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2016
56% For the Plasma (2014) For the Plasma finds genuine, almost innocent-seeming delight in its own swerves in style and rhythm.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2016
90% My Golden Days (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeunesse) (2016) There is serious pain in this movie - pain that endures throughout the years - but also a sincere love for life lived, and life remembered.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2016
85% Lamb (2016) An uneasy and intermittently revealing adaptation of Bonnie Nadzam's 2011 novel ...‐ Village Voice

Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2015
82% The Overnight (2015) Brice ... needs only to sit back and let his actors excel in their comfort zones.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2015
100% 3 And 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets (2015) Though Silver's non-trial instincts are mostly conventional, his wealth of access ... is substantial and rewarding.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2015
88% L For Leisure (2015) What makes L for Leisure more than just a collection of clever, well-photographed jokes is the utter sincerity embedded within the constant sarcasm.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted May 14, 2015
20% Bravetown (2015) Satisfies mainly due to its affecting ensemble and considerable emotional intelligence.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted May 5, 2015
82% These Final Hours (2015) Hilditch gets good mileage out of his cast.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2015
21% White Rabbit (2015) White Rabbit's grave, problematic conclusion attempts to broaden the movie's scope in a way that ultimately feels more unwarranted and distasteful than it does organic to the material.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2015
31% Loitering With Intent (2015) Suffers from a thrown-together vibe that is only rarely eclipsed by its overqualified supporting cast.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2015
36% After The Fall (2014) Scanlon's desperate dive into a life of armed robbery is simply not believable, despite Bentley's best efforts.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2014

100% The Invisible Front (2014) The movie convincingly conveys the inspiring legacy Luksa and his group left behind.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2014
71% 1,000 Times Good Night (2014) Poppe's closeness to the material ensures a level of passion, but he still fails to create a truly specific dynamic for Rebecca and Marcus's family ...‐ Village Voice

55% White Bird in a Blizzard (2014) If the results are occasionally broad and schematic, the actors (Woodley especially) are anything but ...‐ Village Voice

87% Heaven Knows What (2015) Together, the images and the sounds turn Harley's reality into a pulverizing grind from which escape is barely even a distant thought.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2014
87% Stray Dogs (2014) An extreme, compassionate magnification of the minutiae of second-to-second existence (brushing teeth, counting money).‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2014
No Score Yet The Quitter (2014) As The Quitter progresses, Jonathan merely grows nicer and nicer, rendering the character's obligatory, runtime-padding third-act doubts false and unconvincing.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2014
No Score Yet Serena and the Ratts (2012) None of the actors appear confident carrying out the physical tasks - cocking a gun, brandishing a knife, strangling a target, even just talking on the phone - they've been assigned to perform.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2014
75% Once Upon a Time Veronica (2014) Guedes's complex performance leaves no doubt regarding the fragility of Veronica's psyche.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2014
63% Fanny (2014) Fanny has a stagy sensibility, but Auteuil displays flashes of genuine, old-school craft.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2014
46% Honour (2014) Khan's orchestration of suspense impresses; he proves especially skilled at dropping well-timed close-ups on objects that immediately add conflict to a situation ...‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jul 9, 2014
80% Han Gong-ju (2013) The cumulative impact of the delayed story revelations and Chun's startling vulnerability is both an elegant gut-punch and a furious indictment ...‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2014
No Score Yet Lost Persons Area (2009) It's the gestures that elevate the film: What Strubbe's handheld and intimate approach lacks in originality it makes up for in specific and spontaneous tactility.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2014
63% The Homestretch (2014) The movie's investigation into teen homelessness is more panoramic than the intimate, three-person structure might suggest ...‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2014
73% A Coffee in Berlin (2014) Gerster's film is agreeably modest: an 85-minute, black-and-white, jazz-scored film, with a Frances Ha tone, about a day in the life of twentysomething law-school dropout Niko Fischer.‐ Village Voice
