1/4 33% Compadres (2016) "I only stayed to the end out of professional obligation. " ‐
Posted Apr 22, 2016
81% Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns) (2016) "For a time the movie feels like a cross between "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and a vintage Three Stooges short. And then there are the mutated chickens. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 21, 2016
2.5/4 78% Wedding Doll (Hatuna Meniyar) (2016) "The integrity of the filmmaking and the luminosity of Rosenblatt's performance are undeniable. And I suppose the fact that I was affected as I was by "Wedding Doll" is testimony to its emotional effectiveness. " ‐
Posted Apr 15, 2016
2/4 21% Colonia (2016) "Watson and Bruhl give it their best, and Nyqvist makes a powerful villain, but "Colonia" winds up being a movie that wants to get its way on too many levels, and winds up not satisfying on most of them. " ‐
Posted Apr 15, 2016
80% The First Monday in May (2016) "The movie is sloppy: A section concerning Asian stereotypes discusses the vintage film star Anna May Wong, but indiscriminately includes images of Ona Munson in "The Shanghai Gesture." "First Monday" also coddles its interview subjects. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 14, 2016
2.5/4 48% One More Time (When I Live My Life Over Again) (2016) "The whole cast ... sinks its teeth into the material, which is reasonably meaty. " ‐
Posted Apr 8, 2016
2/4 53% Demolition (2016) "The scenario does contain a couple of unexpected stings in its tale, which almost makes the inevitable redemption payoff play a little less pat than it might have under different circumstances. But not THAT much less pat. " ‐
Posted Apr 8, 2016
48% Hardcore Henry (2016) "Its dour eccentricity gives Hardcore Henry a potency above and beyond that of standard-issue show-off action fare. That doesn't mean it's not still obnoxious, though. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 7, 2016
86% Afternoon (Na Ri Xia Wu) "Obviously, this is not a film for viewers unfamiliar with Mr. Tsai's work. But its insistently austere format does suggest a purpose beyond its immediate context. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Mar 31, 2016
2/4 21% I Saw the Light (2016) "In the end, "I Saw The Light" doesn't illuminate enough to show us an entirely compelling Williams. " ‐
Posted Mar 25, 2016
2.5/4 66% Valley Of Love (2016) "It's in the way that Depardieu and Huppert can convey an aspect of phenomenological rue that gives this sometimes muddled movie its ultimate value. " ‐
Posted Mar 25, 2016
1.5/4 40% They're Watching (2016) "An hour and fifteen minutes of tedium is too long to wait for two or three minutes of pleasantly cheesy. " ‐
Posted Mar 25, 2016
98% April and the Extraordinary World (Avril et le monde truqué) (2016) "Who says they don't make mind-bending French science-fiction animated movies like they used to? " ‐ New York Times
Posted Mar 24, 2016
1.5/4 33% The Bronze (2016) "This ostensibly edgy comedy didn't wring a single laugh out of me until maybe fifteen minutes before the finale. " ‐
Posted Mar 18, 2016
84% Sweet Bean (An) (2016) "The movie, beautifully shot and acted, earns its ultimate sense of hope by confronting real heartbreak head-on, and with compassion. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Mar 18, 2016
27% The Perfect Match (2016) "While its title suggests a narrower focus, "The Perfect Match" is largely an ensemble rom-com, and a pretty enjoyable one. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Mar 12, 2016
1.5/4 37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) "It's one of those movies that's barely a movie; scenes don't follow any discernable logic, the action is incoherent when it's not deliberately inane, and so on. " ‐
Posted Mar 11, 2016
2.5/4 50% Lolo (2016) "For all of its non-commonplace perspectives, the movie finally feels a bit thin. " ‐
Posted Mar 11, 2016
100% Here Come the Videofreex (2016) "Concise and informative ... " ‐ New York Times
Posted Mar 8, 2016
2.5/4 92% Emelie (2016) "The result is reasonably satisfying, but the direction shifts from tensile to muddy in the run-up to the finale. " ‐
Posted Mar 4, 2016
97% Cemetery of Splendor (2016) "There's a cultural specificity to this movie that will make it, for Western audiences, even more enigmatic than it is in its Thai context. This ought not be a stumbling block, though. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Mar 3, 2016
29% Marguerite & Julien (Marguerite et Julien) (2016) "The excruciating experience of "Marguerite & Julien" need only be endured by viewers with an obsessive interest in the least constructive aesthetic currents in contemporary French cinema. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Feb 26, 2016
2.5/4 93% The Last Man On The Moon (2016) "The filmmakers, attempting to jazz up their material, get in the way a lot. " ‐
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3/4 100% King Georges (2016) ""King Georges" reminds us that a singular dining experience can often be the expression of a very singular personality, singular temperament, singular discipline. " ‐
Posted Feb 26, 2016
93% Mei ren yu (The Mermaid) (2016) ""The Mermaid" is no ordinary fantastical rom-com ... encompassing as it does weaponized sea urchins, incredibly delicious roasted chickens, man-octopus self-mutilation and other comic oddities. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Feb 20, 2016
3/4 43% Forsaken (2016) "It has a solid story to tell, and tells it with no winks and few, if any, frills. It's involving and ultimately exciting. " ‐
Posted Feb 19, 2016
86% We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! (2016) "A comprehensive and sometimes harrowing portrayal of the grind a working bar band in the 1970s had to endure to get by. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Feb 18, 2016
1/4 53% Standoff (2016) "To give credit where it's due, this lukewarm mess of a movie delivers what its title promises. " ‐
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3.5/4 91% A War (Krigen) (2016) ""A War," as tough to watch as it can be, is an extremely rewarding and disquieting experience. " ‐
Posted Feb 12, 2016
79% Bad Hurt (2016) "Throughout, the filmmakers live up to the movie's title. But as the story comes to a close, they opt to wrap it in comforting cliché, and they turn a miserable but credible viewing experience into a confounding one. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Feb 11, 2016
0% Cabin Fever (2016) "Who benefits from the existence of this film? " ‐ New York Times
Posted Feb 11, 2016
3/4 23% Zoolander 2 (2016) "I laughed so much my wife thought I was going to have a stroke. " ‐
Posted Feb 11, 2016
15% Regression (2016) "Tripped up by its subject matter, the movie is ultimately a tepid and frustrating experience. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Feb 5, 2016
1/4 8% Misconduct (2016) "Such a ragged and desultory muddle is "Misconduct." " ‐
Posted Feb 5, 2016
90% I Knew Her Well (Io la conoscevo bene) (1965) "While it's hardly subtle, it is compelling. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Feb 5, 2016
4/4 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "A comic fable that's both deftly clever and irrepressibly goofy. It is also, from stem to stern, the sweetest and sunniest film the Coens have ever made. " ‐
Posted Feb 3, 2016
41% Jane Got a Gun (2016) "Whatever feminist angle the film might have once aspired to is lost in its listless shuffle. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 29, 2016
3/4 86% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) ""Be the best you you can be" is this movie's message, and writers Jonathan Aibel & Glenn Turner, and directors Alessandro Carloni & Jennifer Yuh heed their own advice throughout this brisk romp. " ‐
Posted Jan 28, 2016
5% Exposed (2016) "In certain mutilated pictures, you can detect the lineaments of greatness: Consider Orson Welles's "The Magnificent Ambersons." Here, that's not the case. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 23, 2016
0/4 11% Dirty Grandpa (2016) "I began giggling with a kind of metaphysical embarrassment for everyone involved in the enterprise, and, eventually, for all of humanity itself. " ‐
Posted Jan 22, 2016
1/4 7% Martyrs (2016) "Both the French and U.S. iterations of "Martyrs" are transparently voyeuristic cheaply ginned-up Guignol peep shows with intellectual pretensions. " ‐
Posted Jan 22, 2016
2.5/4 30% Mojave (2016) "There is something kind of funny about these two bro-styled men arguing about the accuracy of a George Bernard Shaw quote while kicking the crap out of each other, but I'm not sure how much Monahan knows that, smart as he is. " ‐
Posted Jan 22, 2016
3.5/4 50% Bleak Street (La calle de la amargura) (2016) "[A] sense of surreality within a mode of social realism (the scenario, believe it or not, was actually inspired by true event) ... gives the movie its off-kilter power. " ‐
Posted Jan 20, 2016
3/4 71% A Perfect Day (2016) "They say that war is hell. War relief doesn't look like any kind of picnic either ... " ‐
Posted Jan 15, 2016
1/4 74% Band Of Robbers (2016) "I think it's a bad idea that's badly done in at least two ways, maybe three, but however many there are they're all fatal. " ‐
Posted Jan 15, 2016
8% Norm of the North (2016) "The title character of "Norm of the North" may be a bear, but the movie is a dog. Actually, that assessment is unfair to dogs - real, anthropomorphic and metaphorical. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 14, 2016
3.5/4 93% The Treasure (2016) "It's good absurdist stuff, a little reminiscent of the work of Aki Kaurismäki, albeit without that filmmaker's wooly-headed whimsy. " ‐
Posted Jan 8, 2016
92% Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art (2016) "A cogent, brisk, sometimes thrilling documentary ... " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 7, 2016
77% Yosemite (2016) "The material aspires to powerful terseness, but its seemingly conscientious refusal to ramp up too much drama ultimately renders it thinly anecdotal. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 31, 2015
4/4 100% Only Yesterday (2016) "Like "Kaguya," it functions as a highly sensitive and empathetic consideration of the situation of women in Japanese society-but it's also a breathtaking work of art on its own. " ‐
Posted Dec 31, 2015
91% Zangiku monogatari (The Story of the Last Chrysanthemums) (1979) "I was struck not just by newly visible detail in the frame itself, but also the spectacularly effective nuances of performance from the entire cast, particularly the leads. " ‐ New York Times
