Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 89% RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World (2017) The stories that the movie tells after Wray's are mostly well-done and frequently moving mini-movies.‐ RogerEbert.com

No Score Yet Mister Universo (2016) "Mister Universo" is a disarming and humane picture, an unexpected delight.‐ New York Times

3.5/4 80% Amnesia (2017) The film has a personal tone that is not always detectable in his other movies. It enhances a film that's one of the most thoughtful in Schroeder's body of work.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 87% The Fencer (Miekkailija) (2017) The sincerity with which the clichés get served up, and so on, make a relatively smooth viewing experience. But they also render what would have been an at times harrowing real-life story into something safe and bland.‐ RogerEbert.com

86% The Midwife (Sage femme) (2017) Even when portraying the needy, nearly shambolic Béatrice in "The Midwife," Ms. Deneuve is capable of vibrating with an elegance that implies both hauteur and froideur.‐ New York Times

88% Santoalla (2017) The threads that remain hanging imbue this peculiar story of paradise lost with a tragic resonance.‐ New York Times

3/4 88% Almost Sunrise (2017) 'Almost Sunrise' presents a journey that is very much worth the time of anyone who's concerned about the effect war has on our brothers and sisters who fight -- which should translate to 'everyone.'‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 58% Footnotes (Sur quel pied danser) (2017) While Footnotes works up a certain provisional charm at moments, it's too determinedly low key as a whole to make a really memorable impression.‐ RogerEbert.com

83% That Most Important Thing: Love (L'important c'est d'aimer) (1975) Zulawski's third feature and his first made in France, is in certain respects among his most restrained. (It may be a good introduction to his work.)‐ New York Times

38% Bronx Gothic (2017) In the end, Ms. Okpokwasili's often academic-sounding exegeses of her work become repetitive.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2017
81% The Rehearsal (2016) Your mileage may vary, but for myself "The Rehearsal" delivers a good hour and a half of engagement and intrigue only to top it off with a cherry that left me asking "Really?"‐ New York Times

3/4 93% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) A comprehensively crowd-pleasing success.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 72% 13 Minutes (Elser) (2017) A genuine achievement on an inexhaustible subject.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% Mali Blues (2017) Despite the urgency of the situation the musicians face, when they're not doing their work, the movie is quiet, observant, taking in the austere beauty of the land and the people.‐ New York Times

95% The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography (2017) [An] enjoyable but also profound movie.‐ New York Times

3/4 71% Good Fortune (2017) He's a pleasure to spend time with, which is one reason this movie goes down so easy.‐ RogerEbert.com

89% The Ornithologist (O ornitólogo) (2017) Mr. Rodrigues ultimately delivers an intriguing, daring film that is likely to surprise both his fans and moviegoers unfamiliar with his work.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2017
2/4 91% SCORE: A Film Music Documentary (2017) This is a movie that is too frenetic and basic to make a substantial impression. I appreciated a kernel of observation here and there, but not enough for me to give it a whole-hearted embrace.‐ RogerEbert.com

16% All Eyez on Me (2017) Not only a clumsy and often bland account of his life and work, but it also gives little genuine insight into his thought, talent or personality.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
No Score Yet The Boom (Il boom) (1963) Written by Cesare Zavattini, who did the screenplays for many of De Sica's best-known works, the movie skewers the mendacity inherent in the postwar economic resurgence in his country.‐ New York Times

3.5/4 90% Maudie (2017) This film shows instead of tells, and what it shows is sad, disturbing, beautiful, and moving, sometimes all at once.‐ RogerEbert.com

67% Cars 3 (2017) If you can roll with it, the movie is both breezy fun and a pain-free life lesson delivery vehicle.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2017
85% Moka (2017) The movie's climax has sufficient twists and turns for a conventional payoff. But the movie, adapted from a novel by Tatiana de Rosnay, is ultimately more concerned with the genuinely tragic dimensions of the story than its suspense angles.‐ New York Times

1/4 76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) Michell's direction is both overstated and incoherent.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
100% Dawson City: Frozen Time (2017) An instantaneously recognizable masterpiece.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2017
1.5 15% The Mummy (2017) It's amazingly relentless in its naked borrowing from other, better horror and sci-fi movies.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2017
80% Ascent (2017) Ultimately, "Ascent" is a genuinely poetic portrait of a place, and various people's relation to it.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2017
100% Midnight Return: The Story of Billy Hayes and Turkey (2017) The movie is not quite as successful at telling Mr. Hayes's story... But sparks fly once Mr. Hayes joins the Midnight Express entourage when it plays the 1978 Cannes film festival.‐ New York Times

80% Becoming Bond (2017) Sufficiently winning.‐ New York Times

3/4 78% Past Life (2017) A striking and thought-provoking picture.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2017
2/4 64% Dean (2017) A movie with which it is easy to find fault, and if you're a particular kind of person, you'll find fault with it without even trying too hard.‐ RogerEbert.com

95% Radio Dreams (2017) There are traces of early Wim Wenders in this story of immigrants adrift in a world not their own, trying to make the best of things.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 31, 2017
81% Letters From Baghdad (2017) Ms. Swinton's performance of Bell's letters convey Bell's skills as a writer, but the movie is ultimately too conceptually labored for its own good - or that of its subject.‐ New York Times

49% Churchill (2017) The movie's ambition is the good news. The bad news is that it is a hash, choosing to jumble the historical record and frame a Churchill bout with depression against the D-Day invasion of France by Allied forces.‐ New York Times

4/4 100% Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of The Grateful Dead (2017) These multivalent tales of the Dead are awe-inspiring and thought-provoking without fail.‐ RogerEbert.com

83% Hermia & Helena (2017) A peculiar film, one both steely and delicate.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 25, 2017
76% Berlin Syndrome (2017) The movie identifies Ms. Shortland as a talent to watch. And it should constitute some kind of breakthrough for Ms. Palmer, who has not been given much of interest to do since she arrived in Hollywood a little over a decade ago.‐ New York Times

62% Buena Vista Social Club: Adios (2017) Both an exemplary sequel and a vital, informative companion piece.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 24, 2017
1.5/4 19% Baywatch (2017) A full feature with a storyline that an enterprising six-year-old might have thought was a little too rudimentary.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 75% Wakefield (2017) Wakefield is kind of a wonder.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria and the Rise of ISIS (2017) A mostly impressive array of experts ... adds to the merciless clarity of this tragic picture.‐ New York Times

81% Afterimage (Powidoki) (2017) This is an angry, vivid, passionate film.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 17, 2017
1.5/4 68% The Wall (2017) The posturing leads to an ending that's unsatisfying even on the level of pessimism it aspires to.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 79% Violet (2017) I wound up admiring the movie for its ambition while unsatisfied with its achievement.‐ RogerEbert.com

96% Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe (2017) One need not admire Zweig's writing to recognize the worth of this thoughtful treatment of one of the countless real-life tragedies of 20th-century history.‐ New York Times

50% The Drowning (2017) Distinguishes itself by applying a depth of psychological observation that yields a genuinely unsettling vision.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 9, 2017
71% Manifesto (2017) As an installation, "Manifesto" may have seemed like a sensory onslaught. As a movie, it's a very elaborate intellectual exercise, immaculate in every technical detail.‐ New York Times

3/4 97% Burden (2017) A consistently fascinating documentary.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 50% Julian Schnabel: A Private Portrait (2017) The movie is never uninteresting but is often surprisingly low-energy and, even more surprisingly, visually drab.‐ RogerEbert.com

80% Like Crazy (La pazza gioia) (2017) An energetic, visually attractive but ultimately irritating comedy-drama.‐ New York Times
