0% The Gracefield Incident (2017) So formulaic and unoriginal that its poster should accompany the dictionary definition of derivative ...‐ Hollywood Reporter

38% Bronx Gothic (2017) Despite some undeniably powerful moments, Bronx Gothic, both the show and the film, suffers from an overall pretension.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Cartels (2017) This vehicle is one of seven - count 'em, seven - movies that Seagal made last year, and anyone still ponying up to see them has to be considered a sucker.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Undercover Grandpa (2017) Gives grandparents a bad name.‐ Hollywood Reporter

50% Hickok (2017) A perfectly serviceable Western featuring a comfortingly familiar storyline, Hickok will tide genre fans over until more substantial offerings come along.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2017
No Score Yet Dark Harvest (2017) Although it never manages to transcend its genre conventions, Dark Harvest... effectively holds its own against the similar B-movie exercises commonly seen on late-night cable.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% Mali Blues (2017) Mali Blues should appeal both to world music fans and anyone interested in the increasing tensions between secular and religious forces in Africa.‐ Hollywood Reporter

17% Inconceivable (2017) Something that both Nicolas Cage and Faye Dunaway will want to leave off their filmographies, and at this point that's saying something.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2017
0% Darkness Rising (2017) This is a low-budget horror film so generic you'll forget everything about it, including its title, just hours after watching it.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
No Score Yet Home Truth (2017) Chronicling the years-long efforts of a mother to strengthen the legal rights of victims of domestic violence, Home Truth is a harrowing and deeply moving portrait of a woman determined not to let her children's deaths be in vain.‐ Hollywood Reporter

91% In Pursuit of Silence (2017) In Pursuit of Silence doesn't really tell you much that you didn't already instinctively know - silence is good, loud noise is bad - but it does provide a sporadically interesting overview that could well have you rethinking your next vacation plans.‐ Hollywood Reporter

43% Can't Stop, Won't Stop: A Bad Boy Story (2017) By the time Can't Stop Won't Stop: A Bad Boy Story reaches its conclusion, viewers will know that the rapper/businessman wears Calvin Klein boxer briefs. And that a room in his home is devoted entirely to candy.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2017
No Score Yet No Dress Code Required (Etiqueta no rigurosa) (2017) Long before the movie's over you'll be as much in love with its subjects as they obviously are with each other.‐ Hollywood Reporter

14% Hare Krishna! The Mantra, The Movement And The Swami Who Started It All (2017) There's certainly a good film to be made about Srila Prabhupada and the spiritual movement he founded that became an international sensation starting in the mid-1960s. But John Griesser's documentary isn't it.‐ Hollywood Reporter

15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Anyone capable of explaining the near-incomprehensible storyline deserves a prize of some sort. ‐ Hollywood Reporter

83% F(l)ag Football (2017) F(l)ag Football reveals that gay athletes can be just as dull as straight ones when they become the subject of documentaries.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
29% Camera Obscura (2017) Camera Obscura squanders its intriguing premise with a ham-fisted execution.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2017
70% Moscow Never Sleeps (2017) The jumble of storylines inevitably results in narrative confusion, and the relationships linking them, some of which are only revealed late in the proceedings, don't resonate strongly.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
95% Night School (2017) Feeling particularly relevant these days because of the ever-growing obstacles faced by less-educated people struggling for economic gains, the moving film depicts the American dream in action.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
88% Almost Sunrise (2017) Exploring the ramifications of that tragic state of affairs while introducing a concept dubbed "Moral Injury," Almost Sunrise makes for powerful viewing.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
80% Ascent (2017) Exerts fascination with its haunting imagery of what it informs us is still an active volcano that may well erupt again (the last time was in the 1700s).‐ Hollywood Reporter

17% Air (2015) If an apocalypse ever does occur, one hopes that whatever survivors are left will have better material to draw from when they make the inevitable films about it.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% Dawson City: Frozen Time (2017) Documentarian Bill Morrison delivers a worthy follow-up to his classic 2002 film Decasia with another cinematic tone poem dedicated to the glories of silent cinema.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2017
75% The Incomparable Rose Hartman (2017) The Incomparable Rose Hartman doesn't quite make the case for lengthily profiling its irascible and not particularly interesting subject.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2017
81% Letters From Baghdad (2017) Despite such rich source material, however, Letters From Baghdad proves oddly unsatisfying.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
83% Spirit Game: Pride of a Nation (2017) The clips from the two championship matches go on far too long, ultimately proving more numbing than exciting for any but the sport's most ardent fans.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 28, 2017
19% Baywatch (2017) A character acknowledging that the proceedings resemble an "entertaining but far-fetched TV show" isn't enough to make Baywatch anything more than the cynical cash grab that it is.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
100% Legion of Brothers (2017) Viewers may at times be hard pressed to keep track of what exactly is going on, but the essential truths about combat, including post-traumatic stress, are vividly conveyed.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
No Score Yet Devil's Domain (2017) [A] generic horror movie featuring a skeletal plot, barely developed characters, recycled clichés, and subpar special effects.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
No Score Yet PACmen (2017) A depressing portrait of a political system that has gone hopelessly off the rails, PACmen is essential viewing for anyone seeking to understand some of the reasons why.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% Elián (2017) For the most part the film chronicles the complex tale cogently and effectively, using extensive archival footage as well as contemporary interviews that help put the events in context.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 15, 2017
No Score Yet 32 Pills: My Sister's Suicide (2016) Rough-hewn stylistically and occasionally bordering on self-indulgence, 32 Pills: My Sister's Suicide nonetheless packs a powerful emotional punch with its unflinching portrait of two siblings dealing with past and present demons.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
No Score Yet My Life Without Air (2017) Visually poetic but often feeling as air-deprived as its shaven-headed subject, My Life Without Air would have benefited from more narrative oxygen.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
No Score Yet This Cold Life (2017) If the film succeeds in attracting an audience, it may very well drive up the tourism that this remote town so desperately needs. At least as shown here, it seems like a pretty cool (pun intended) place to visit.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
No Score Yet Out of Thin Air (2017) A stylishly executed but narratively muddled effort that confounds as much as it engrosses.‐ Hollywood Reporter

43% Mr. Chibbs (2017) Never proves compelling.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 6, 2017

Read More | Posted May 1, 2017
No Score Yet No Man's Land (2017) [An] intensely visceral documentary which shows just how far some fringe segments of the population are willing to go to stand up for their beliefs.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 1, 2017
100% Natasha (2017) A coming-of-age tale is infused with complicated emotional and sociological dynamics in award-winning writer David Bezmozgis' adaptation of his book Natasha and Other Stories.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
22% Below her Mouth (2017) An undeniably steamy effort that delivers plenty of heat in its profusion of sex scenes while falling significantly short in dramatic terms.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
No Score Yet A Thousand Junkies (2017) The problem is that, as anyone who has spent time with junkies knows, they're not a terribly interesting lot.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
100% A Gray State (2017) A riveting combination of political commentary and true crime story.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2017
No Score Yet The Sensitives (2017) A documentary so affecting and effective it will make viewers feel grateful they are healthy enough to see it in a theater.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2017
0% Psychopaths (2017) Keating fails to effectively transmit his love of pushing the horror genre to new heights, with the result that we feel less gleefully complicit than merely voyeuristic.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2017
No Score Yet Thumper (2017) Thumper fails to overcome its numerous clichés.‐ Hollywood Reporter
