Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 90% Gook (2017) There's not much to take away from the movie besides its sound and fury.‐ RogerEbert.com

93% Marjorie Prime (2017) There's more going on in this movie's 90-plus minutes than in many summer blockbusters nearly twice its length.‐ New York Times

86% The Wound (Inxeba) (2017) Mr. Trengove shoots the film in intimate wide-screen, getting in close to the performers as their characters tamp down explosive feelings, often letting the spectacular landscapes behind them break down into soft-focus abstractions.‐ New York Times

2.5/4 67% Pilgrimage (2017) It's interesting as far as it goes, but you wish it would have gone farther.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 31% The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) Wants to be a short story by Cheever or Updike or Roth but can't help but being what it inescapably is, an impotent cry of 'Yes I Can Do Literary' from a screenwriter whose idea of literary has been permanently Hollywoodized.‐ RogerEbert.com

98% Whose Streets? (2017) This is direct and frequently powerful filmmaking that doesn't much care about meeting my aesthetic standards.‐ New York Times

3.5/4 82% The Trip to Spain (2017) The Trip films constitute the only movie franchise that matters.‐ RogerEbert.com

94% After Love (L'économie du couple) (2017) An irritating movie about irritating people.‐ New York Times

3/4 100% It's Not Yet Dark (2017) Both heartbreaking and awe-inspiring.‐ RogerEbert.com

.5/4 36% Kidnap (2017) Kidnap isn't schlock, it's garbage.‐ RogerEbert.com

86% 4 Days in France (Jours de France) (2017) While Mr. Reybaud has exemplary artistic confidence and an interesting vision, this is a movie that in many ways defines or justifies the "not for everybody" critical hedge.‐ New York Times

87% Wind River (2017) An actor before he was a screenwriter, Mr. Sheridan clearly spent a lot of his time learning about filmmaking on movie sets; his direction is assured throughout.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
94% Step (2017) This is a highly pertinent story told in an entertaining way.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
2.5/4 31% From the Land of the Moon (Mal de pierres) (2017) The story could have used a little less Under the Tuscan Sun and a little more All That Heaven Allows.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 87% Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk (2017) You don't have to be a Green Day fan to find this movie interesting, but you'll definitely be more inherently invested in it if you are.‐ RogerEbert.com

5% The Last Face (2017) As well meaning as this movie is, it is also a turgid, muddled one.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
78% I Dream in Another Language (Sueño en otro idioma) (2017) It's delectably watchable.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
8% The Emoji Movie (2017) This movie's "believe in yourself" message is borne out, in a perverse way, by the very fact that it even exists. And yet the whole thing remains nakedly idiotic.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
No Score Yet Mister Universo (2016) "Mister Universo" is a disarming and humane picture, an unexpected delight.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
3.5/4 74% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
2/4 84% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
83% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2017
83% Santoalla (2017) The threads that remain hanging imbue this peculiar story of paradise lost with a tragic resonance.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
2/4 62% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
44% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2017
3/4 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) A comprehensively crowd-pleasing success.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2017
3/4 75% 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

96% The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography (2017) [An] enjoyable but also profound movie.‐ New York Times

3/4 75% Good Fortune (2017) He's a pleasure to spend time with, which is one reason this movie goes down so easy.‐ RogerEbert.com

87% 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

2/4 92% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
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 88% Maudie (2017) This film shows instead of tells, and what it shows is sad, disturbing, beautiful, and moving, sometimes all at once.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
68% 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
86% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2017
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 16% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2017
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
