Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
9/10 88% Closeness (Tesnota) (2017) Tesnota does not offer explicit moral lessons, but its matter-of-fact narrative still conveys a sense of claustrophobia and dread in a racially divided city.‐ PopMatters

9/10 100% A Man of Integrity (Lerd) (2017) Rasoulof keeps the action apace, but his characters never explain or narrate. A Western viewer must piece together town relationships as a puzzle.‐ PopMatters

8/10 85% Okja (2017) Tilda Swinton is doubly funny as twin corporate CEOs: the batty one in pink who places the piglets, and the fiendish one with a bad haircut who later sends the grown superpigs to the slaughter.‐ PopMatters

8/10 29% Jupiter's Moon (Jupiter holdja) (2017) The results are flawed, but occasionally compelling.‐ PopMatters

6/10 87% The Student ((M)uchenik) (2017) Uchenik eventually tells us little about the current state of high school education or religious orthodoxy in Russia.‐ PopMatters

8/10 79% American Honey (2016) Sasha Lane's nuanced performance helps to make sense of Star's experience as they range between magical and the capitalist realities.‐ PopMatters

8/10 92% I, Daniel Blake (2017) Loach's downtrodden heroes usually find some way to sustain hope, in family or in humor, in individual ingenuity or collective kindness. But this time, the filmmaker's own anger at systemic, interminable inequities threatens to overcome his optimism.‐ PopMatters

6/10 97% Clash (Eshtebak) (2016) The result conveys a pacifist message with an exacting punch.‐ PopMatters

9/10 87% Wind River (2017) A suspenseful and dark revenge tale.‐ PopMatters

71% Dayveon (2017) As the film unfolds, it surprises by mixing casual violence with casual tenderness. ‐ PopMatters

100% Whose Streets? (2017) Like earlier documentaries about police violence, The Murder of Fred Hampton (1971) and Attica (1974), Whose Streets? serves both as an archival record and a tool to be used in an ongoing struggle.‐ PopMatters

6/10 100% Roxanne Roxanne (2017) As a delightful rap tribute to Shanté by young NAS at the end of the film suggests, the beat of Shanté's spoken performances are key to conquering the tribulations of her personal life.‐ PopMatters

8/10 98% The Big Sick (2017) As Emily, Kazan is fantastic, unselfconscious and deadpan, a welcome respite from typical romcom leads so often preoccupied with sorting out the rules of dating.‐ PopMatters

93% Theater of Blood (Theatre of Blood) (Much Ado About Murder) (1973) Theater of Blood reprises the multiple-revenge theme of the Phibes films, but injects new life into the concept with a superior script and stellar cast.‐ PopMatters

35% Super Troopers (2002) While it does not pretend to be anything more than a largely plotless, gross-out comedy, it nevertheless has some appeal, as an indie tribute to American popular culture of the 1970s.‐ PopMatters

33% Romeo Must Die (2000) The film passes over an opportunity to make subtler comments about racial and ethnic conflicts in the contemporary U.S.‐ PopMatters

60% Kikujiro (2000) Instead of trying to repeat the critical success of Central Station and similar poignant but predictable films, Kitano uses the child's point of view to refract his own sense of color, action, and humor.‐ PopMatters

0% 3 Strikes (2000) 3 Strikes is unlikely to break new ground as yet another attempt by rap musicians and producers to reach white Multiplex audiences with a low-budget comedy.‐ PopMatters
