3/4 80% The Other Side (Louisiana) "An immersive, almost harrowingly naturalistic plunge into the lives of marginal Louisianans obsessed with guns, drugs and belligerent resentments. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 20, 2016
4/4 86% A Monster With A Thousand Heads (Un Monstruo de Mil Cabezas) (2016) "The movie deserves to be known, first of all, as a terrific example of intelligent, captivating film craft-further proof of the recent strength of Mexican cinema. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 11, 2016
3.5/4 95% Dark Horse (2016) "It would be hard for any fictional treatment to beat the pleasures of Osmond's genial, enthralling documentary. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 6, 2016
2/4 73% Sworn Virgin (Vergine giurata) (2016) "The film obliges viewers to puzzle out the nature of the sworn virgin tradition, and even at the tale's end, it may not be clear. This can only be counted a virtue by those who count obscurity and bafflement as artistic assets. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 22, 2016
100% The Witness (2016) "Thoughtful and satisfying. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 18, 2016
1/4 No Score Yet Sky (2016) "Are the French especially prone to this kind of unintended silliness? "Sky" almost seems determined to prove they are. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 15, 2016
3.5/4 No Score Yet Class Divide (2016) "To the filmmakers' credit, they seem to approach their subjects with no simplistic agenda but a genuine desire to engage and understand everyone they meet. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 13, 2016
2/4 92% Neon Bull (Boi Neon) (2016) "The characters are given no real depth-they're types more than people-and the narrative has practically zero dramatic tension or development. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 8, 2016
3/4 No Score Yet The Blue Hour (Onthakan) (2016) "While "The Blue Hour" opens in a way suggesting a typical gay coming-of-age tale, it quickly veers away from conventional formulas and expectations by using that genre to springboard into different and much darker ones. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 8, 2016
3/4 71% Take Me To The River (2016) "The film exemplifies a very distinctive vision that marks it as one of the year's most promising debuts. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 18, 2016
3/4 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) "While Hood's film says very little about American policy in this area, it does suggest that its terrible subject is likely to be with us for a long time to come. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 11, 2016
2/4 90% City Of Gold (2016) ""City of Gold" offers no evidence of Gold ever penning a negative review. This is why it ultimately comes off more as a cinematic puff piece than a "real" documentary. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 11, 2016
2.5/4 89% Songs My Brothers Taught Me (2016) "An earnest, smartly mounted film about life on a present-day reservation. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 2, 2016
3/4 22% Backtrack (2016) "Along with excellent work by cinematographer Stefan Duscio and composer Dale Cornelius, Petroni elicits sharp performances from his estimable cast, especially Adrien Brody. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3.5/4 86% Mountains May Depart (Shan he gu ren) (2016) "Whatever Jia shows us and wherever he takes us, we're always aware of being in the hands of one of the contemporary world's great filmmakers. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 12, 2016
2/4 59% Eisenstein In Guanajuato (2016) "Greenaway ... hasn't made a really good film in a quarter-century, so the disappointments of "Eisenstein in Guanajuato" come as no surprise. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 5, 2016
3/4 91% Requiem For The American Dream (2016) "In large part because Chomsky is a very good speaker with a wealth of incisive ideas to share, the result is a film that feels less like a lecture than a provocative X-ray of current American political realities. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jan 29, 2016
2.5/4 39% Synchronicity (2016) "Having such a small number of characters, like the limitations caused by budgetary constraints, might sound like a recipe for creative claustrophobia, but Gentry turns these givens to his advantage ... " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jan 22, 2016

Posted Dec 4, 2015
3/4 89% Mediterranea (2015) "Offers a deliberately muted, finely textured account of the ordeals many Africans endure both before and after voyages to Europe in search of better lives. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 20, 2015
2.5/4 76% Trumbo (2015) "It's another of those simplistic, made-to-order films about the Hollywood blacklist in which the blacklisted movie folks are all innocent, in every conceivable way. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

Posted Oct 30, 2015
3.5/4 89% Experimenter (2015) "Bracing, original and thought-provoking. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 16, 2015
3/4 95% Winter on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom (2015) "Though the film is limited by a point of view that's too polemically reductive, the idealistic, difficult, sometimes lethal struggles it covers are undeniably revelatory and moving. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 9, 2015
1.5/4 9% Stonewall (2015) "Although handsomely crafted, well-acted and made with transparently noble intentions, Roland Emmerich's "Stonewall" is a movie that seems destined to please almost no one. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

Posted Sep 18, 2015
1.5/4 86% A Brilliant Young Mind (2015) "With one exception, Nathan's relationships with people go nowhere.

Posted Sep 11, 2015

Posted Jul 31, 2015
3/4 89% Cartel Land (2015) "Not for the faint of heart, it sometimes puts its cameras right it the middle of gun battles, for a result that is extremely dramatic even if it also leaves a number of important questions regrettably unanswered. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 3, 2015
3.5/4 76% A Murder In The Park (2015) "Besides being a riveting true-crime story ... "A Murder in the Park" is a film that makes a powerful case that some cherished liberal beliefs aren't always congruent with the truth; in fact, sometimes they are the exact opposite. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 26, 2015
3/4 89% A Borrowed Identity (2015) ""A Borrowed Life" emerges as one of the most engaging and polished of recent Israeli films, and as such is well worth the attention of anyone interested in the cultures and issues it limns. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

Posted May 20, 2015
1.5/4 92% Slow West (2015) ""Slow West" must be counted one of the most unintentionally ridiculous Westerns to come down the pike in a long, long while. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 15, 2015
3.5/4 85% The Seven Five (2015) "This kind of story has been told endlessly in dramatic movies and TV shows, but rarely has a film offered characters like these telling their own stories. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 8, 2015
3/4 98% Iris (2015) "Maysles was undoubtedly the ideal cameraman to enter Iris' life and simply observe her non-stop activity, and his visual eloquence is an understated but constant asset to "Iris." " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 29, 2015

Posted Mar 20, 2015
3.5/4 69% Futuro Beach (2015) "Its considerable satisfactions ... come mainly from the way the story is told, which spells nothing out, and in fact is so reticent that the viewer is constantly drawn into the creation of meaning. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
