Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 100% Dawson City: Frozen Time (2017) As an act of preservation, Frozen Time is a marvel, a miracle, a complete good. As an act of storytelling, it's still a bit too cold for the nitrate to catch fire.‐ indieWire

B+ 44% Vincent N Roxxy (2017) For a movie that doesn't quite know what it's trying to say about violence, it sure knows how to say it with vigor.‐ indieWire

B 63% Dean (2017) The lessons that Dean learns are pat and predictable, but this disarmingly winsome film is comfortable in the knowledge that universal truths can be the hardest things for people to discover for themselves.‐ indieWire

B 89% Sami Blood (2017) Sami Blood tells a very familiar story, but the hyper-specificity of its telling renders it a wholly new and quietly profound experience.‐ indieWire

86% 24 Frames (2017) In an age where people are so preoccupied with the size of the screen on which we watch things, it's fitting that Kiarostami's final work reminds us that no screen is too small, and that no screen is ever big enough.‐ indieWire

B- 67% The Day After (Geu-hu) (2017) Slight, contained, but ineffably soulful.‐ indieWire

A 100% Visages, villages (2017) Varda has always possessed a warm and compulsively watchable screen presence, and the pint-sized iconoclast still has more pep in her step than most of us have ever had. ‐ indieWire

B+ 73% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) This is Lanthimos' most scattered and sedate film, but it's his scariest as well.‐ indieWire

A- 74% The Beguiled (2017) Coppola's film is told with surgical precision and savage grace.‐ indieWire

A- 89% Promised Land (2017) Sprawling and brilliant.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted May 24, 2017
B+ 88% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) Frustrated, lonely, and struggling to get over the feeling that he should just accept his brokenness, Danny is a vintage Baumbach man, and Sandler's mustached performances makes the character feel like someone you know, or someone you might be. ‐ indieWire

C+ 29% Jupiter's Moon (Jupiter holdja) (2017) Staggeringly well-shot but painfully strained.‐ indieWire

B- 86% A Ciambra (2017) A Ciambra is more successful when unpacking the cause of Pio's identity crisis than it is when searching for solutions.‐ indieWire

B- 93% Let the Sunshine In (Un beau soleil intérieur) (2017) A good bit of fun scrambling about in the darkness.‐ indieWire

Read More | Posted May 18, 2017
B+ 88% The Teacher (Ucitelka) (2016) If The Teacher fails to convey the particulars of its climactic uprising, Hřebejk's lesson plan -- a needle-sharp take on the perils of doing the wrong thing for the right reasons -- still touches a nerve.‐ indieWire

B 100% School Life (2017) [The film] thrives whenever it regards Headfort as a place suspended between an ancient institution and an overgrown home, one that fosters both the transient children and the adults who have become part of the furniture.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
C- 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Part Game of Thrones, part Snatch, and almost all bad, Guy Ritchie's latest is one of those generic blockbusters that has nothing to say and no idea how to say it. ‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted May 9, 2017
B 74% A Woman's Life (Une vie) (2017) The rare period piece that feels observed rather than pretended, Stéphane Brizé's "A Woman's Life" finds the prolific French filmmaker applying his ruggedly naturalistic style to some very different source material. ‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted May 7, 2017
B+ 100% Last Men in Aleppo (2017) An unforgettable and essential documentary about something that demands to be seen, even if it can never hope to be understood.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted May 3, 2017

Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
C+ 69% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
B+ 89% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2017
C- 28% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
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- 74% 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

B 89% SHOT!: The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock (2017) David Bowie's favorite photographer gets his close-up in this candid and compelling documentary.‐ 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- 65% 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

B 95% I Called Him Morgan (2017) A bittersweet documentary about the woman who saved a jazz legend's life, and then killed him. ‐ 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- 60% 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 43% 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- 46% 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- 96% 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 16, 2017
B+ 100% Lucky (2017) A wise and wistful love letter from one remarkable character actor to another.‐ 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- 58% 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- 51% 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 20% 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
