A No Score Yet The Academy of Muses (La academia de las musas) (2016) "The Academy of Muses draws viewers in and forces them to take sides along with Pinto's skeptical apprentices. By its end, the movie has transcended the boundaries of the classroom to become an educational experience in more ways than one. " ‐ indieWIRE

A- 93% Kate Plays Christine (2016) ""We are a society of gawkers," asserts one newsperson as Sheil wrestles with the task at hand. By the end of Kate Plays Christine, Greene seems to argue that we're all complicit in that indictment. " ‐ indieWIRE
Posted Aug 22, 2016
D 9% The Sea of Trees (2016) "The most confounding element of Sea of Trees is that Van Sant has already made a far better movie about two men struggling to live another day in the middle of nowhere -- his minimalist 2002 drama Gerry. " ‐ indieWIRE

Posted Jul 19, 2016
B+ 90% Summertime (La Belle Saison) (2016) "Summertime owes less to its plot development than the credibility of its performances among this trio of women as they present a fascinating set of conflicting perspectives. " ‐ indieWIRE
Posted Jul 18, 2016
B+ 95% Manchester by the Sea (2016) "Manchester stands out for doing an old routine just right. It's not the next best thing, but it does justice to a familiar playbook. " ‐ indieWIRE
Posted Jul 18, 2016
B- 83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "While "Star Trek Beyond" lacks a center, it compensates with an endless parade of distractions. When the movie moves along at a breezy clip, it's partly because it feels so purposeless. " ‐ indieWIRE
Posted Jul 15, 2016
B- 66% The Infiltrator (2016) "After a few initial missteps, Cranston's good-natured character can do no wrong, and The Infiltrator takes cues from his progression by creating the sense that his scheme is so perfectly realized it can just glide along to a perfect finish. " ‐ indieWIRE
Posted Jul 14, 2016
C+ 44% Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru (2016) "By existing entirely within the confines of the world [Robbins has] created, the movie actively resists any possible skepticism about his unique skill. " ‐ indieWIRE

Posted Jun 23, 2016
B 88% Cosmos (2016) "t's often hilarious, confounding and downright strange; if not the director's most polished work, it nevertheless delivers a demented philosophical puzzle that's fun to scrutinize in all of its baffling uncertainties. " ‐ indieWIRE
Posted Jun 15, 2016
B- 51% The Neon Demon (2016) "This grotesque, hyperstylized treatise on the fashion industry recaptures some of the zany images and B-movie abstractions of Refn's crossover effort, "Drive," though it never quite gels on the same level of inspiration. " ‐ indieWIRE

Posted May 14, 2016
B 70% CafĂ© Society (2016) "Aided by an anxious Jesse Eisenberg and the gently expressive Kristen Stewart, "Cafe Society" works about as a well as a decent-but-not-great Allen movie can. " ‐ indieWIRE

Posted Mar 21, 2016
B+ 86% Don't Breathe (2016) "The ending leaves room for a sequel, but it's not just a half-baked teaser. As with all strong horror stories, the conclusion of one dangerous scenario feeds the fear of more to come. " ‐ indieWIRE
