Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Well, here it is, then: a story you didn't know that maybe didn't need to be told.‐ Washington Times

82% Indignation (2016) Mr. Lerman and Mr. Letts are forging a remarkable two-man tet-a-tet that is worthy of the intimacy of the Albee stage.‐ Washington Times

94% The Innocents (Les innocentes) (2016) Films like The Innocents, which is so rich in substance, moral complexities and clashes of faiths and rectitude, are a rarity, and should be rightly celebrated.‐ Washington Times

96% Weiner (2016) Exquisitely fascinating.‐ Washington Times

80% Sunset Song (2016) The acting, production design and costuming are all first-rate. Mr. Davies directs with a deft master's touch, even if he is trigger-unhappy in the editing room.‐ Washington Times

89% The Clan (El Clan) (2016) A reverse-police procedural, with the perpetrators not only known at the outset but abetted by a society that is too blind from corruption to even bother turning away.‐ Washington Times

83% The Wave (Bolgen) (2016) There's not precisely much new here, but what the film does it does well.‐ Washington Times

87% The Club (El Club) (2016) The cinematography, by Sergio Armstrong, is shrouded in vivid and pale blues that bring out the malificence in the sea nearby while bathing the actors in unflattering lighting that is meant to foster a sense of a purgatory for these broken humans.‐ Washington Times

No Score Yet Crossing Bhutan (2016) The star of the show, unquestionably, is the photography by Larkin Donley and Mr. Henretig, which absolutely must be experienced on as large a screen as possible.‐ Washington Times

74% The Hateful Eight (2015) Sadly, The Hateful Eight is too often a yawner, with long passages of relative stillness punctuated by moments of adrenaline.‐ Washington Times

93% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) It's good to have the Force back on our side, and it will be thrilling to see how the story develops over the next two films.‐ Washington Times

76% Tales of Halloween (2015) More levity humor would have been nice, but too many of the directors take the subject matter as serious melodrama - as if they forgot that part of the thrill of horror is the necessary gallows humor.‐ Washington Times

62% Truth (2015) How you feel ultimately about Truth may well depend on your personal politics, but how I felt about it came down to the uncomfortable disquiet at a film that tries perhaps a little too hard to lionize loose journalistic practice and shifty ethics.‐ Washington Times

38% Love (2015) Can Love - or any film - be enjoyed on its own value if the real sex were perhaps substituted with its less-risque R-rated approximations? In the case of Love, I found the answer to be a resounding negative.‐ Washington Times

94% All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records (2015) His directorial hand is both sure and to-the-point in All Things Must Pass, wasting little screen real estate in the tight running time and avoiding as much cheap sentimentality as possible in the closing chapters of the Tower saga.‐ Washington Times

89% What Our Fathers Did: A Nazi Legacy (2015) The film labors at times to overstate its case, but no more fascinating three subjects could be found for this story.‐ Washington Times

96% Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) While not especially revelatory of either filmmaker -- or their interactions -- a half-century on, the new film nonetheless does film historians a service by pulling back the curtain on one of the 20th century's most important meeting of the minds.‐ Washington Times

72% Youth (2015) If [Michael] Caine is the film's avatar, [Rachel] Weisz is its anchor.‐ Washington Times

73% Black Mass (2015) Depp keeps Bulger's sizable temper and immense evil professionally in check until it explodes diabolically in scenes of sudden, searing violence -- much of it played out before witnesses, and sometimes in broad daylight.‐ Washington Times
