90% Blindspotting (2018) I unabashedly admire the movie's aims, and think "Blindspotting" ought to be seen by the widest audience possible.‐ New York Times

2.5/4 92% Dark Money (2018) It's not an insult to call this an exemplary PBS documentary; let's just say you should make sure you are really in the MOOD for a PBS doc before you check out Dark Money.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 8% Siberia (2018) Sometimes you have to wonder if it's the director's actual inability to set up a mood, or if he just doesn't care.‐ RogerEbert.com

85% Milford Graves Full Mantis (2018) You can get a lot of facts about Mr. Graves and his discography on the internet (and I recommend you do). This movie gives you, well, the man's heart, and it's a beautiful one.‐ New York Times

59% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) Returning a third time as director, Genndy Tartakovsky lends his usual graphic savvy, providing a not-quite-saving grace.‐ New York Times

3/4 83% Under the Tree (Undir trénu) (2018) What makes it a better-than-average satire on the unthinking hostilities that human beings are prone to is its steady intelligence, combined with a humor sometimes so dry as to be undetectable.‐ RogerEbert.com

83% The Citizen (Az Allampolgar) (2018) A careful, compassionate and beautifully acted character drama with a social conscience.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
75% Constructing Albert (2017) The film... shows how these meals are built from the ground up, and with backbreaking work. It also addresses, albeit not with too much specificity, the economic anxieties of creating these businesses.‐ New York Times

27% Bleeding Steel (2018) At 64, Mr. Chan is still the most talented and witty athlete in cinema.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
1.5/4 53% The First Purge (2018) The social commentary portions of the movie are simplistic even by the low standards generally set by genre films.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 20% Hover (2018) All of [its] nuances, as well as whatever satirical social commentary the movie wanted to make, are lost in the climax.‐ RogerEbert.com

66% Uncle Drew (2018) It's not every day that you can say, "Shaquille O'Neal was the best actor in that movie." ‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
83% Love, Cecil (2018) The documentary, "Love, Cecil," directed with energy and affection by Lisa Immordino Vreeland, doesn't grapple with that question, and doesn't have to.‐ New York Times

100% Rock Rubber 45s (2018) There is something about Mr. Garcia's life story that makes him uniquely qualified to tell it.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
2.5/4 25% Spiral (2018) The anecdotal, multi-narrative approach is useful in personalizing the phenomenon, but the movie still brought me up short.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 76% Never Steady, Never Still (2018) If you don't treat yourself to this movie, you will indeed be missing out on one of the best pieces of acting 2018 cinema has to offer.‐ RogerEbert.com

32% The Catcher Was A Spy (2018) Berg and Heisenberg conduct most of their dialogue, when they finally meet, in chess moves. And the movie tantalizingly leaves open the question of whether the game ended in a mate or a resignation.‐ New York Times

91% Araby (Arábia) (2018) Thanks to Mr. de Sousa's superb performance, the movie often convincingly portrays not just the exploited condition of laborers such as Cristiano, but the nagging sadness of life itself.‐ New York Times

86% Alex Strangelove (2018) "Alex Strangelove" is witty, compassionate and enjoyable throughout; a charming movie and in many respects an enlightened one.‐ New York Times

2/4 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Bloodless, soulless, bereft of personality or idiosyncrasy, delivering only meticulously engineered thrills based on repeating what has worked in the past.‐ RogerEbert.com

0% Gotti (2018) That the long-gestating crime drama Gotti is a dismal mess comes as no surprise. What does shock is just how multifaceted a dismal mess it is.‐ New York Times

1.5/4 54% Tag (2018) A lazy, vulgar celebration of White Male American Dumbness.‐ RogerEbert.com

60% Straight Into a Storm (2018) Deer Tick's iteration of an earnest, gruff-voiced, white-guy musical incorruptibility doesn't float my boat, but it is what it is.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2018
51% Superfly (2018) In this film's 21st-century Atlanta, "The Man" never really manifests. Greed and corruption are themselves the magnetic fields that pull together would-be players - white, Latino and African-American.‐ New York Times

1/4 6% 211 (2018) A cavalcade of crap. Loud crap.‐ RogerEbert.com

76% Bernard and Huey (2018) Devoted Feifferites, not to mention fans of Mr. Rash and Mr. Koechner, who get to flex their muscles nicely here, will be well sated.‐ New York Times

69% The Quest of Alain Ducasse (La Quête d'Alain Ducasse) (2018) I found "The Quest of Alain Ducasse," a near-hagiographic documentary on the celebrated chef, a less than satisfactory experience.‐ New York Times

59% Hotel Artemis (2018) Mr. Pearce is...well-versed in staging and shooting decent action scenes, and building suspense enough to keep "Hotel Artemis" diverting in its overstuffed ambition.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2018
52% A Kid Like Jake (2018) "A Kid Like Jake" is humane, compassionate and strangely detached, almost to the point of inconsequentiality.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
85% Upgrade (2018) The movie manages to be pretty funny; and the grisliness of the action, while in a sense entirely deplorable, adds to the kicks.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
92% Nossa Chape (2018) The movie the directors have made doesn't have the passion that its subjects do.‐ New York Times

0% Future World (2018) I'd say it looked like what Corky St. Clair of "Waiting for Guffman" would come up with if he had a mind to make a "Mad Max: Fury Road" knockoff, but that would be insulting to Corky St. Clair.‐ New York Times

1/4 38% Feral (2018) Director Young shoots his unimaginative opus with an eye of getting all the value of the gore makeup department's work on screen. In this respect, he does a bang-up job.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 44% In Darkness (2018) I did find myself wishing that all films this narratively misguided were so directorially sure-footed. Makes getting through them a lot less painful. ‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 74% The Misandrists (2018) The Misandrists presents an unusual atmosphere, one mainstream cinema can not even conceive of, let alone get on a screen.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% Les Parents Terribles (The Storm Within) (1948) Cocteau's dramatic model, as ever, never strays too far from Greek tragedy and resolves appropriately.‐ New York Times

82% That Summer (2018) Sheds further light on the Beales with footage shot before the making of "Grey Gardens."‐ New York Times

86% Sollers Point (2018) Characters like this one can be infuriating. But Mr. Lombardi imbues Keith with an ordinary likability...‐ New York Times

89% 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
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
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 86% 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

2.5/4 24% Breaking In (2018) James McTeigue has a fleet, efficient visual style that keeps the suspense set pieces percolating.‐ RogerEbert.com

95% Filmworker (2018) The portrait he creates of his former boss reveals a man of great curiosity, generosity and creativity, but also a frequently imperious and unreasonably demanding perfectionist.‐ New York Times

88% 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
