93% Toni Erdmann (2016) Toni Erdmann is seriously funny, yes, but there are also very real emotional stakes behind every joke.‐ The Daily Beast

91% Elle (2016) At once a perverse psycho-sexual thriller and a venomous comedy of manners, Elle boldly wears its contractions on its sleeve.‐ Brooklyn Magazine

A- 84% Listen Up Philip (2014) Like its central character, Listen Up Philip exudes a kind of highbrow affectation that charms more than it alienates.‐ indieWire

C- 64% The Foxy Merkins (2014) Olnek is clearly a talented writer, and it's unfortunate for a film with such a promising premise that the one-liners and situational humor don't add up to more than the sum of their parts.‐ indieWire

B+ 83% Rezeta (2012) Frank in its depiction of eroticism and emotion alike, Frias' ability to articulate the ephemeral aspects of human connection elevates his film to something greater than the sum of its itinerant parts, establishing him as a talent to watch.‐ indieWire

B+ 66% Laggies (2014) Even if the film doesn't leave much to ponder past the closing credits, it's enjoyable while it's unfolding, doing justice to the strengths of Shelton's ever-expanding filmography.‐ indieWire

B 89% Remote Area Medical (2014) Genuinely moving but never maudlin, Remote Area Medical lays bare the injustice of a system that fails to provide for those who need it most.‐ indieWire

A- 94% Whiplash (2014) Revealing both the dangers and payoffs of artistic ambition, Whiplash is sure to establish Chazelle as a directorial force to be reckoned with.‐ indieWire

58% The Neon Demon (2016) Teasing the audience with prolonged suspense is one of Refn's specialties, and at its best, the sensation manifests itself viscerally.‐ Brooklyn Magazine
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2016
B+ 81% Infinitely Polar Bear (2015) Cynics may scoff at the fact that Infinitely Polar Bear glosses some of the filmmaker's darker memories, but they'll need an ice bucket handy if they intend to avoid its warmth altogether.‐ indieWire

90% Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013) Kechiche's visual style combined with the actresses' truly astounding performances make this film impossible to view from a safe distance.‐ Guernica
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2016
98% Love & Friendship (2016) Streaked with the director's decidedly modern strain of cynicism, Love & Friendship might very well be the most faithful translation of Austen's biting humor and highly practical feminism to date.‐ Film Comment Magazine
Read More | Posted May 3, 2016
B+ 78% Viktoria (2016) Vitkova renders this highly personal story with great pathos that showcases her truly inventive sense of humor.‐ indieWire

84% While We're Young (2015) Beneath the onslaught of contemporary in-jokes and one bad fedora, Baumbach manages to articulate, with a great deal of poignancy, the timeless challenge of aging ‐ Film Comment Magazine

41% In Secret (2014) Like any adaptation, the film glosses over some of the finer details of the novel, but it preserves the author's moral ambiguity towards his characters.‐ Film Comment Magazine
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2014
97% The Selfish Giant (2013) The physicality of the overgrown Swifty and exceptionally runty Arbor make them a particularly endearing odd couple to watch, and their friendship feels real, from start to tragic finish.‐ Film Comment Magazine
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2013
93% Le passé (The Past) (2013) Forcing his characters into moral gray zones, the director weakens the notion of objectivity, allowing the viewer's allegiances to shift freely among the household's denizens-even if as individuals, none of them is particularly sympathetic.‐ Film Comment Magazine
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2013
96% Sister (2012) Scorn may give way to momentary solicitude, but Sister is by no means a tenderhearted morality tale.‐ Film Comment Magazine
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2013
92% Silver Linings Playbook (2012) But Silver Linings Playbook never induces a roll of the eyes, even if it never really surprises.‐ Film Comment Magazine
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2013
94% Lore (2013) The bleak backdrop is rendered with great beauty-so much so that perhaps the sensory poetics of the visuals linger beyond their darker implications.‐ Film Comment Magazine
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2013
68% Trance (2013) The muddled mental states of the characters (and that of the audience) are mirrored by the film's visual style, which oscillates between languorous dreamscapes and frenetic action sequences.‐ Film Comment Magazine
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2013
86% What Maisie Knew (2013) Scott McGehee and David Siegel's adaptation commendably preserves the book's child perspective even if it doesn't quite match the characteristically dark shades of the author's moral fare.‐ Film Comment Magazine
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2013
86% The Attack (2013) The result is a quiet power-so quiet in fact that the score is almost non-existent-that never risks sentimentality or exploitation.‐ Film Comment Magazine

91% Blue Jasmine (2013) Blanchett, wielding a stiff cocktail in one hand and a bottle of anti-anxiety pills in the other, gives her character a skillful shove from neurotic towards psychotic.‐ Film Comment Magazine

86% The Patience Stone (2013) The film loses the palpable tension it manages to set up in the beginning‐ Film Comment Magazine
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2013
36% Touchy Feely (2013) The result is a disjointed and inconsequential film whose chakras are in urgent need of realignment.‐ Film Comment Magazine
