Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
95% The Florida Project (2017) The Florida Project is ultimately a beautiful, rough portrait of childhood set against the backdrop of the remains of the dreams of adults, which, like so many Florida oranges, have become overripe and rotten.‐ Bust Magazine

86% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) If anything, Professor Marston demonstrates the need for more portrayals of a diverse range of relationships and romances, because then the stories we tell will be as unconventional and original as each relationship we tell them about.‐ Bust Magazine

97% Columbus (2017) Aside from Wes Anderson movies (most notably The Grand Budapest Hotel), I'd never seen a movie that took such care in composing each and every shot... ‐ Bust Magazine

No Score Yet Almost Adults (2016) Almost Adults is a clear labor of love and prompts some genuine laugh-out-loud moments, even if the momentum disappears in the second half of the narrative. ‐ Bust Magazine

5.1/10 29% The Queen of Spain (La reina de España) (2017) Tonally, the movie can never quite find its footing. ‐ Paste Magazine

No Score Yet Feed (2017) Beyond the brutal depiction of the toll of eating disorders, though, Feed is a powerful examination of grief, and what it means to love someone and lose them without losing oneself in the process.‐ Bust Magazine

68% This Beautiful Fantastic (2017) This Beautiful Fantastic wants to have it both ways: the odd-duck, pretty girl who changes the lives of the men around her for the better, but who is also the main character in her own story, and the effect is murky and downright unsettling.‐ Bust Magazine

4.5/10 50% Mascots (2016) The jokes land for the most part, but nothing in Mascots provokes the same actual humor of Guest's other works.‐ Paste Magazine

65% Carrie Pilby (2017) Watching Carrie Pilby try to navigate her life is often cringeworthy for me in particular, but that desire to cringe and cover my face with embarrassment attests to the strength of the character and of Powley's performance.‐ Bust Magazine

6.3/10 91% Mindhorn (2016) Mindhorn, on the whole, isn't much of a humorous story. Indeed, it functions almost as a warning against the dangers of unchecked nostalgia, disguising a rather sad story with the veneer of broad comedy.‐ Paste Magazine

3.5/5 80% Embers (2015) A beautifully shot film (shot on an Alexa camera), combining a heavy emphasis on close-ups of the actors' faces with wide, textured visuals of the utter chaos and destruction surrounding the survivors.‐ The Mary Sue

95% Tramps (2016) Tramps is overall a winning film, proving once again that some of the best romantic comedies can be light on plot: all we need is an excuse for beautiful people to fall in love.‐ Bust Magazine

47% The Most Hated Woman In America (2017) Essentially, The Most Hated Woman in America does far more harm than good in how it presents the story of Madalyn Murray O'Hair.‐ Bust Magazine

89% I don't feel at home in this world anymore. (2017) The disjointedness that characterizes the earlier parts of the film and makes Ruth's misanthropy seem so grounded and relatable shifts into more banal and predictable material by the end.‐ Bust Magazine

88% Jackie (2016) Pablo Larraín's direction ties every loose strand together with ease and grace, his camera condemning, challenging, coaxing out meaning, and wringing beauty from a bloodstained pink suit.‐ Bust Magazine

93% Little Sister (2016) While Little Sister has its strong points, such as a quietly emotive lead performance from Addison Timlin as a nun-in-training visiting her family, the movie tries to juggle far too many narrative balls.‐ Bust Magazine

88% Other People (2016) Chris Kelly's Other People [is] empathetic, drily humorous, and based in part on his own life.‐ Bust Magazine

87% Divines (2016) These girls are allowed to be obscene, rude, messy, and flawed, leading to an exhilarating and ultimately heartbreaking viewing experience.‐ Bust Magazine

94% Arrival (2016) Arrival champions the importance of being able to work with and understand one another without resorting to violence, even in the face of the oft-terrifying unknown -- particularly important in today's increasingly fractured global political climate.‐ Bust Magazine

1.5/5 39% Morgan (2016) For a film that is ostensibly about a being with almost supernatural intelligence, Morgan is just not that smart.‐ The Mary Sue
