C+ No Score Yet The Wall (2017) Smaller than the sum of its stones, this taut psychological thriller is still sturdy enough, and every bit as compelling as some studio fare 10 times its size.‐ indieWire

B+ No Score Yet Get Me Roger Stone (2017) Get Me Roger Stone never asks you to root for its eponymous agent of chaos, but he's a more compulsively watchable villain than any Marvel or DC movie has ever had. ‐ indieWire

C- 29% Sandy Wexler (2017) Adam Sandler's third Netflix comedy arrives as something of a mission statement, finding a loose moral justification for all of his bad movies.‐ indieWire

C- 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) The worst Fast and the Furious movie, it betrays almost everything that fans have come to love about the series.‐ indieWire

A- 72% All These Sleepless Nights (2017) Michal Marczak's unclassifiable wonder is the movie that Terrence Malick was trying to manufacture with Song to Song.‐ indieWire

C- 30% Salt and Fire (2017) The worst movie that Werner Herzog has ever made.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2017
B+ 95% Karl Marx City (2017) A hypnotic work of cinematic autobiography that leverages one woman's fear to exhume the paranoia that once defined an entire country.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
C- 62% Carrie Pilby (2017) A golden example of what can go wrong when a coming-of-age story shares the same insecurities as its lead character.‐ indieWire

Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
B- 95% Prevenge (2017) If The Boss Baby offered the family-friendly suggestion that having a child is akin to a corporate merger, Alice Lowe's gleefully demented Prevenge makes the far less pacifying argument that carrying one is more like a hostile takeover. ‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
B- 58% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) A fundamental sense of empathy may not be especially cinematic, but that's no reason to ignore it (and Chastain, who strikes a wonderful balance with Heldenbergh, is masterful at expressing stoicism without ever tipping into sanctimony).‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
C+ 67% Little Boxes (2017) As perceptive as it is precious and predictable.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2017
D 45% The Most Hated Woman In America (2017) [The film] makes it abundantly clear that Madalyn Murray O'Hair was a riveting human being whose story is worth telling in our messed up times, but the film never has the slightest idea of what that story might be about.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2017
C- 47% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) A mega-budget reboot that's embarrassed of the TV show it's bringing to the big screen.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2017
A- 94% After the Storm (Umi yori mo mada fukaku) (2017) Hirokazu Kore-eda only makes good movies, but this tender, accessible drama is one of his very best. ‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
B+ 100% Most Beautiful Island (2017) A short, stressful, and utterly spellbinding debut that transforms the immigrant experience into the stuff of an early Polanski psychodrama, Ana Asensio's Most Beautiful Island is a worthy winner of the SXSW Grand Jury Prize for best narrative feature.‐ indieWire

B 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) Scotland's four favorite dope fiends are still fun to watch, even if they don't have all that much on their minds.‐ indieWire

Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2017
B- No Score Yet DRIB (2017) This unclassifiable docu-joke has a pretty decent punchline.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2017
B- 63% Small Crimes (2017) The film ties together in such a perfect bow that it's tempting to forgive all of the knots it took to get there.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2017
C+ 67% Dara Ju (2017) The story ultimately frays apart by tugging at its flimsiest threads, but Onah hits on too many things with too much force for his debut to be dismissed as a result.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2017
C- 53% The Boss Baby (2017) The Boss Baby might pacify kids, but this dirty diaper of a movie is further proof that Hollywood animation is in need of a change.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2017
B- 100% The Last Laugh (2017) Ferne Pearlstein's The Last Laugh is a rather safe and genteel documentary about the limits of humor (especially as they pertain to the Holocaust), but it opens with a subtly provocative sequence of events that's hard to shake.‐ indieWire

D 21% The Ottoman Lieutenant (2017) Joseph Ruben's The Ottoman Lieutenant tries to snatch a love triangle from out beneath the Armenian Genocide but fails to get any of the angles right.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
C+ 37% Brimstone (2017) Reverent and ridiculous in equal measure, Martin Koolhoven's latest epic is a wild pseudo-Western that trembles beneath the biblical weight of its comically grim story. ‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2017
B- 72% Headshot (2017) A bone-crunching Indonesian bloodbath that stars the same actor from The Raid and feels like it was cut together from that film's deleted footage.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
D+ 22% Table 19 (2017) A woeful wedding farce in which the cake is the most interesting character.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2017
B- 66% Before I Fall (2017) The movie might be little more than a Groundhog Day remake set in high school, but if you're going to make a ripoff of Groundhog Day, then high school is one hell of a place to set it.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2017
D+ 22% Collide (2017) The kind of low-rent action movie that only exists because everybody involved knew that nobody in the Western world would ever see it.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2017
B 92% Logan (2017) Better as an agitated Western than as a fading superhero movie (or a listless cross-country chase), the most cantankerous X-Man's final outing is a scaled-back affair that nevertheless knows how to swing for the fences.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
B- 100% Keep Quiet (2017) The film disturbs the water in a way that is hard to ignore.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2017

B+ 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) 2017's only good story about a self-obsessed cartoon billionaire who gets money from Steve Mnuchin. ‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2017
C 17% The Space Between Us (2017) Mars is such a perfectly natural setting for a genre that has wasted millions upon millions of dollars searching for signs of life. Alas, there are none to be found in this otherwise guileless and good-natured YA love story.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
C 74% Ingrid Goes West (2017) The movie never digs beneath the most obvious layers of its L.A. stereotypes. ‐ indieWire

Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
B 43% The Discovery (2017) The Discovery is poised to dive off the deep end and follow Will as he pioneers new layers of space and time, but the film lends him a trail map that deprives him - and us - the satisfaction of finding some measure of truth for himself. ‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
B+ 100% Dina (2017) Alternately comic and tragic and best when its both at once, Dina humanizes a world of people who were only dehumanized because we allowed them to be.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
C- 58% Crown Heights (2017) Too crammed and hectic to convey the immensity of the systemic evils that run through its ruptured heart. ‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
B 83% Wind River (2017) This bitter, visceral, and almost parodically intense thriller knows what it takes to survive.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
B+ 47% Person to Person (2017) Once you settle into its groove the movie becomes much more than the sum of its parts.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
B+ 69% Dayveon (2017) Quietly moving to watch [Dayveon] find something he can old on to between all the stupid that surrounds us.‐ indieWire
