3/5 34% Jigsaw (2017) Jigsaw isn't any less competent than the best of its predecessors, but it is little more than a capable rehash of things these films have done over and over.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 41% The Mountain Between Us (2017) This is not a great movie. But it's a fun one we shall remember fondly.‐ Little White Lies

100% Oh Lucy! (2017) Atsuko Hirayanagi's directorial debut is the darkly comic story of a middle-aged Japanese woman in crisis.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
84% Mom & Dad (2017) What could have been a cynical, sadistic and cold deconstruction of the family unit-The Belko Experiment set in the home rather than at the office-is much more good-natured and straightforwardly enjoyable than this synopsis may suggest.‐ Cinema Scope

No Score Yet Suleiman Mountain (2017) A roller coaster ride that ends on a moving note of stillness. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
No Score Yet The Other Side of Everything (Druga strana svega) (2017) It's a vivid and nuanced portrait of a country too often judged from the outside, still divided by what happened, and conscious of the fact that there can be no easy solutions.‐ Seventh Row

No Score Yet The Judge (2017) Director Erika Cohn pragmatically and fairly addresses every side of the issue with inspiring assurance and clarity.‐ Seventh Row

Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017

84% Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (2017) Rarely has a combination of filmmaker and subject been so thrillingly perfect.‐ Seventh Row

90% Zama (2017) Out of the hypnotic rhythm of the film regularly bursts the harsh violence of colonialism. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
73% Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc (Jeannette l'enfance de Jeanne d'Arc) (2017) This singular musical gloriously combines gorgeous beachside settings, idiosyncratic non-actors, beautifully low-key singing, and heavy metal for one of the most joyous experiences the festival has to offer.‐ Seventh Row

2/5 34% American Assassin (2017) Kitsch's performance is almost indistinguishable from O'Brien's, and there is no sense that one character is more insane or evil than the other.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
31% Salt and Fire (2017) ... sure enough Herzog's continued thematic exploration of the often fraught cohabitation between man and nature comes through.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
95% First Reformed (2017) What keeps us alert as viewers is not the slow disintegration of this man's faith, but the deep ambiguity about where the film's sympathies actually lie.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
2/5 87% Wind River (2017) A terrible shame to use such an interesting setting for such a conventional story.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
1/5 40% Death Note (2017) A project that feels both overdetermined and underdeveloped.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2017
1/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) Not even bad enough to be fun.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 19, 2017
100% Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016) [Huppert] carries the film through its most surprising and heart-wrenching moments. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
94% Being 17 (Quand on a 17 ans) (2016) Being 17 cleverly embraces its own silliness in a way that is both reassuring and endlessly pleasurable. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
94% Strike a Pose (2017) Strike a Pose is very direct and gripping in how it addresses "the closet" and the sometimes traumatising emotions it may create.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
83% Kiki (2017) Kiki serves as a reminder that in parts of American and Western society, minorities are still rejected from the mainstream on the basis of dated, racist, and homophobic prejudices.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
48% Porto (2017) Gabe Klinger's Porto is a prime example of a seemingly romantic film that is insidiously misogynistic which uses multiple film stocks as an aesthetic gimmick.‐ Seventh Row

3/5 68% Cars 3 (2017) Nothing exceptional but I am still moved just thinking about that ending.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
70% Café Society (2016) Nothing can prepare you enough for the film's brutal sexism. Slim pickings, indeed.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
80% Personal Affairs (2016) Even in these more dramatic moments of truth, the film keeps its sense of humour and levity. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
78% American Honey (2016) American Honey persistently tries to conjure "movie magic" moments, which might work if they weren't so predictable. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
3/5 88% It Comes At Night (2017) Rather disappointing in the end, but Shults delivers a few memorable scares.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2017
No Score Yet Just Like Our Parents (Como Nossos Pais) (2017) After a slow start to the Berlinale film festival, Lais Bodanzky's Just Like Our Parents emerged as one of the highlights.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
92% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) In the end, A Fantastic Woman proves a subtle and poignant statement on what we accept as 'normal'.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
100% Close Knit (Karera ga honki de amu toki wa) (2017) Close-Knit leaves a lasting impression not simply of the injustice faced by transgender people, but also of what joy there could be if society were more tolerant.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
88% Let the Sun Shine In (Un beau soleil intérieur) (2017) A tale of frustrations and desires, otherness and encounters, Denis' first true comedy - or shall we say, her first genuinely humorous film - proves just as profound and attuned to the complexity of human relationships as her previous work.‐ Seventh Row

4/5 98% Kedi (2017) This is the film the world needs right now.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
67% Los Perros (2017) Los Perros does not only remind us that all lives are inherently political. It also draws attention to how difficult it is for women to uphold their political stance within a system that regularly discredits them.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2017
4/5 73% Gifted (2017) Films that are so good in so many ways do not come around very often.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
96% The Rider (2018) Heavy-hearted cowboys, wild horses and broken dreams: The Rider is a great film about what it means to be a man.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
4/5 95% The Love Witch (2016) The film offers a brilliant spin on the genre's despicable gender politics, all the while relishing in the pleasures of its outmoded visual style.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2017
4/5 80% Patriots Day (2017) Berg deserves more recognition than he gets - he's Michael Bay with a social conscience.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2017
4/5 83% The Founder (2017) A special, worthwhile film that promises more confrontational Hollywood films in the future.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
3/5 45% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) This threequel thankfully shares some of the delightfully trashy action excesses of the late '90s and early 2000s that made the first film so fun. Yet it stops short of the manic sincerity which elevated that film's hilarious narrative leaps.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2017
1/5 15% Collateral Beauty (2016) Beyond the psychotic awfulness of the scenario, there is something inherently off about the film's attempt to reconcile the existential topic of grief with the more materialistic world of business affairs.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2016
1/5 41% Office Christmas Party (2016) A disturbing ode to capitalism and an ill-conceived waste of talent.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2016
89% Lady Macbeth (2017) Screenwriter Alice Birch has cannily relocated the story from Russia to 19th-century Somerset, where the idyllic rural setting soon becomes more stifling than relaxing.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2016
2/5 74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) A disappointment that underlines how great the original Harry Potter films were.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
2/5 22% American Pastoral (2016) The direction of the film is so matter-of-fact, the storytelling so obvious, the lack of nuance so palpable, that it seems to actually take its alarmist and patronising attitudes towards change at face value.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2016
98% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) This supremely humane and moving film concludes that kindness and courage can help one do the only thing that is truly possible: make the best out of the situation.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2016
4/5 83% Deepwater Horizon (2016) Purely and simply a great action movie.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
3/5 75% Wiener-Dog (2016) The film is more successful as an exercise in style than it is as a gripping observation of the real world.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2016
2/5 35% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) Like watching an interesting hot person waste time on his embarrassingly mediocre, unfunny friends.‐ Little White Lies
