88% Sollers Point (2018) Characters like this one can be infuriating. But Mr. Lombardi imbues Keith with an ordinary likability...‐ New York Times

88% Pope Francis - A Man of His Word (2018) The interview sections are fascinating, and scenes of the pope's travels, during which he frequently washes the feet of those who come to him, are moving.‐ New York Times

1/4 0% Dark Crimes (2018) A movie that is not just muddled in the conventional ways but down to its core.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 82% The Escape (2018) Tara is a role that she has to inhabit without flash, and Arterton does so, and movingly, in every frame in which she appears.‐ RogerEbert.com

83% Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat (2018) Basquiat's art - raw, inventive, socially engaged - continues to speak to us even as the artist himself cannot.‐ New York Times

No Score Yet Ladies First (2018) "Ladies First" tells a tale that is indeed incredible and inspiring.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
100% Layla M. (2016) A brisk, involving film that depicts "radicalization" from a humanist angle while applying proper consideration to the political and cultural currents from which such transformations stem.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 8, 2018
83% First Match (2018) Ms. Emanuelle's performance as Mo is certainly spectacular, but I don't think I've seen better screen acting in 2018 than Yahya Abdul-Mateen II's work as Darrel.‐ New York Times

2.5/4 82% The 12th Man (2018) When Baalsrud, played with resilience by Thomas Gullestad, isn't dodging Germans, his fights against the elements bring to mind films such as The Revenant.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 34% Racer and the Jailbird (Le Fidèle) (2018) The work by the two leads is consistently committed, not to mention oozing with old fashioned movie-star charisma.‐ RogerEbert.com

28% Overboard (2018) None of the proceedings are sidesplittingly funny, but they grow increasingly sweet-natured.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
89% Angels Wear White (2018) This all sounds grim, and it is. But the story grabs you. Ms. Qu shoots the sturdily constructed scenario with unshowy sharpness.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
53% Bad Samaritan (2018) Devlin...handles the proceedings like Adrian Lyne (who directed "Fatal Attraction") on HGH supplements (and divested of over a third of Mr. Lyne's visual elegance, such as it is).‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
2.5/4 11% The Escape of Prisoner 614 (2018) Writer/director Zach Golden, making his feature debut, does all right by the silly but warmhearted character dynamics and the retro-diner humanism.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
4/4 89% Let the Sunshine In (Un beau soleil intérieur) (2018) The film's confidence comes in part from the acceptance of the things that can't be known.‐ RogerEbert.com

29% Modern Life Is Rubbish (2018) Much of the movie...is an advertisement for male emotional immaturity.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2018
12% Kings (2018) In tying its story to this particular moment in American history, the movie bites off more than it can coherently chew.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2018
100% Rogers Park (2018) The superb actors, given opportunities to go for broke, make each one count, and make the movie worth watching.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2018
2/4 77% Little Pink House (2018) The movie often seems to have a hard time making up its mind whether it wants to be The Insider or Mean Girls.‐ RogerEbert.com

32% Super Troopers 2 (2018) This non-indulger will attest that you don't have to be high to find this long-impending sequel to 2002's "Super Troopers" very funny indeed.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
63% Beyond the Clouds (2018) Persistent sentimentality - manifested most in the music score by A.R. Rahman - undercuts "Beyond the Clouds" at almost every turn.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
70% This Is Our Land (Chez nous) (2018) The drama is well-paced, and all of the actors are wonderful.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2018
1.5/4 60% 10x10 (2018) The opening scenes of this thriller look and feel like something I've seen dozens, maybe hundreds, of times before.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 64% Come Sunday (2018) The movie itself, overall, feels kind of bloodless.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018

Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
72% Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc (Jeannette l'enfance de Jeanne d'Arc) (2018) "Jeannette" throws the modern back at the medieval, making no distinction between religious ecstasy and that experienced in certain contemporary contexts of music and ritual.‐ New York Times

18% Submergence (2018) Ms. Dignam's script distills the novel into middlebrow Hollywood treacle.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2018
52% Rampage (2018) As for Mr. Johnson, one hesitates to level a charge of "phoning it in" against him. He's a generally reliable performer, but I have to say it seems he had less fun here than he did in the recent Jumanji.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
3/4 95% Sweet Country (2018) A movie of visuals first and foremost.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
2.5/4 47% The Miracle Season (2018) This movie goes for the heartstrings and tear ducts more than the sports-conscious. The results are pretty mixed.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% The Heart of Nuba (2018) The film is worth seeing because it's a moving and remarkable story and it represents a great cause.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
96% The Endless (2018) This idea may at first seem both dumb and highly implausible, but viewers eager to poke holes in the scenario should give it time. "The Endless" rewards patience with mind-bending twists and turns.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
80% Where Is Kyra? (2018) As a statement about the economic insecurity inherent in American capitalism, "Where Is Kyra?" has grim power.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
86% Wilde Salomé (2013) "Wilde Salomé" is most fascinating as a portrait of a superstar actor who, for all his wealth and privilege, encounters unusual frustrations as he pursues genuine artistic ambitions.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
100% Personal Problems (2018) For all its rough edges, "Personal Problems" retains a vitality and an integrity that practically bounds off the screen.‐ New York Times

1.5/4 80% Dave Made a Maze (2017) I had never felt happier to be approaching senior citizenship.‐ RogerEbert.com

9% Game Over, Man! (2018) This almost laugh-free comedy ... is distinguished by a relentless level of outrageous yet strangely listless vulgarity.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
2.5/4 79% I Kill Giants (2018) There's still something about I Kill Giants that feels projected, a work more informed by empathy than experience.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
3/4 73% Final Portrait (2018) An apt tribute to both the artist and art itself.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018

Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
86% A Bag of Marbles (Un sac de billes) (2018) The writing and its attendant characterizations have an undeniable integrity, the particular historical detail offered by the story is not common in films about this era, and the lead performers are moving.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) As sequels to sci-fi action thrillers showcasing giant metallic fighters go, "Pacific Rim Uprising" is adroit and enjoyable.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
92% Love, Simon (2018) The emotional resonance may be surprising given the movie's relentless gloss, but it's real.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
100% Keep the Change (2018) "Keep the Change" is not a seamlessly crafted movie, but it's awfully tenderhearted and thoroughly disarming. It deserves to be widely seen.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
48% Allure (2018) The filmmakers seem less concerned with telling a story than in convincing the audience (and maybe themselves) that they can handle this provocative and potentially exploitive material ... with what's conventionally considered "appropriate" sensitivity.‐ New York Times
