Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016)

"Whenever the movie teeters on the edge of poetic madness-like when Manduca voices his belief that Theo represents the redemption of the white colonials-Guerra's commitment to thesis is there to pull it back into the literalism." ‐AV Club

Mountains May Depart (Shan he gu ren) (2016)

"There's no denying the poignancy of its themes, phrased and developed wordlessly, though props and gestures-a wedding invitation found covered in dust, spare sets of keys carried like memories, and so on." ‐AV Club

Eisenstein In Guanajuato (2016)

"Greenaway's obsessions with sex, food, and vengeance sometimes cover up the fact that he has no idea how to explain why people want anything, but not here." ‐AV Club

B- 85%

Hail, Caesar! (2016)

"Somewhere in there are stretches of the Coens' funniest comedy since The Big Lebowski; it just takes a little patience." ‐AV Club

Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)

"Kung Fu Panda 3 is often inspired as animation, and tired as everything else." ‐AV Club

Exposed (2016)

"The confused, heel-dragging mystery drama Exposed suggests an especially dour, arty episode of Law & Order: SVU, minus any reasons to keep watching." ‐AV Club

The 5th Wave (2016)

"A kids-trained-to-kill sci-fi flick that turns mildly subversive right before taking a headlong dive into sub-Twilight soap ..." ‐AV Club

Mojave (2016)

"Does the movie know it's a joke?" ‐AV Club

Moonwalkers (2016)

"Perhaps it was only a matter of time before we started seeing movies by people who consider Guy Ritchie a formative influence." ‐AV Club

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016)

"A cool 90-minute action flick padded out into a lumbering ooh-rah male weepie." ‐AV Club

B 94%

In The Shadow of Women (2016)

"Perhaps, having made so many movies that feel like ghost stories, Garrel deserves to take it easy for once." ‐AV Club
Posted Jan 14, 2016
B+ 93%

The Treasure (2016)

"Though it almost overplays its hand with a Robin Hood storybook motif, The Treasure manages a tricky balance between low-key social satire and total fantasy." ‐AV Club
Posted Jan 7, 2016
D 21%

Diablo (2016)

"Roeck aims for an homage to Eastwood Sr.'s revisionist Westerns (think The Outlaw Josey Wales, Unforgiven, etc.), but the result is pretentious and pointless." ‐AV Club
Posted Jan 7, 2016
A 97%

Chimes at Midnight (1965)

"The best and most touchingly personal of all Shakespeare adaptations, Chimes At Midnight is pervaded by melancholy and loneliness, even though its characters are almost seen never alone." ‐AV Club
Posted Dec 31, 2015
D+ 9%

Point Break (2015)

"Boldly reimagining Kathryn Bigelow's cult favorite as a movie where absolutely nobody seems to be having any fun, the new Point Break drops the original's Zen-like balance of macho mysticism and camp in favor of dour humorlessness." ‐AV Club
Posted Dec 31, 2015
C+ 60%

Joy (2015)

"Rough even by Russell's standards, this grab bag of dropped plot points, visual metaphors, and theatrical cues looks like the underdrawing of a comic drama, only half covered in bright impasto strokes." ‐AV Club
Posted Dec 17, 2015
A- 75%

The Hateful Eight (2015)

"Shot in 70mm, but largely set in one room, this is the writer-director's take on the betrayed promise of America: a perverse vision of sadistic men comforted by false causes." ‐AV Club
Posted Dec 16, 2015
B 43%

In the Heart of the Sea (2015)

"If In The Heart Of The Sea has its share of clunks and groans, it also looks suspiciously like bona fide big-screen art." ‐AV Club
Posted Dec 10, 2015
B+ 89%

Arabian Nights: Volume 3, the Enchanted One (As Mil e Uma Noites: Volume 3, O Encantado) (2015)

"Arabian Nights locks ordinary struggles and scrubby Portuguese country sides into Byzantine framing devices, faithful to the credo that any story can be interesting if it's told in an interesting way." ‐AV Club

C 80%

Chi-Raq (2015)

"It's a movie where a viewer would be hard-pressed to point out anything that really works; it's too gooey to bite as satire, and too much of a cartoon to be a sincere cri de coeur for the Second City's metastasized gang culture." ‐AV Club
Posted Dec 3, 2015
C 27%

Every Thing Will Be Fine (2015)

"Its bizarre throwaway lines and shrugged-off subplots brings to mind Tommy Wiseau instead of Douglas Sirk-an impression underscored by extensive, largely mismatched dubbing." ‐AV Club
Posted Dec 3, 2015
B 95%

Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015)

"Hitchcock/Truffaut packs plenty of cogent observations into a modest package, but avoids turning into a Cliff's Notes version of the book, instead using it and its history as a jumping-off point for new insights." ‐AV Club
Posted Dec 3, 2015
C+ 69%

The Danish Girl (2015)

"There's a lot stewing here-perhaps more than Hooper's upscale, designer-eclectic direction can pick through." ‐AV Club

A 100%

Out 1, Noli Me Tangere (1971)

"Uniquely ambitious, Rivette's film (technically a serial) spends nearly 13 hours stitching paranoia, loneliness, comedy, and mystical symbolism into a crazy quilt big enough to cover a generation." ‐AV Club
Posted Nov 5, 2015
C+ 41%

Love (2015)

"Ironic that a movie that's so explicitly about intimacy should only feel intimate when it gets its characters to leave the house." ‐AV Club

C+ 29%

Burnt (2015)

"Is it too much to ask for a film about creative self-destruction to have a few loose screws of its own?" ‐AV Club
Posted Oct 29, 2015
D 18%

Jem and the Holograms (2015)

"Its one saving grace is that Chu's direction is so wildly inconsistent that it manages to produce a handful of genuinely gorgeous images alongside all of the cruddy ones." ‐AV Club
Posted Oct 22, 2015
C+ 16%

The Last Witch Hunter (2015)

"The Last Witch Hunter ends up crumbling into another generic showdown of murky fantasy effects and snatched artifacts, with a final shot that is literally framed around a door to possible sequels." ‐AV Club

Beasts of No Nation (2015)

"One could claim that the film is meant to present a perspective desensitized to violence-but then what is the movie sensitive to, aside from tastefully composing widescreen in thirds?" ‐AV Club

The Assassin (2015)

"The Assassin is one of the most flat-out beautiful movies of the last decade, and also one of the most puzzling." ‐AV Club

Bridge of Spies (2015)

"An ode to holding fast to moral principles, geopolitics be damned, becomes a hurrah for old-fashioned big-screen storytelling." ‐AV Club

B 61%

Yakuza Apocalypse (2015)

"Yakuza Apocalypse is the kind of free-for-all only Miike could stage-pitting not merely different characters, but different genres and tones against each other, until the world cracks in two under the weight." ‐AV Club

Pan (2015)

"It's hard to make the case that any of this means anything, or is even supposed to ..." ‐AV Club

Shanghai (2015)

"Håfström directs it like he's sucking too hard on a cigarette, in a quick, over-and-done-with style that results only in fitful coughs of smoke." ‐AV Club
Posted Oct 1, 2015
C 73%

He Named Me Malala (2015)

"Malala functions less as a movie than as an audiovisual package-just another method of delivery for Yousafzai's biography and cause, innocuous, information-packed, and utterly inessential." ‐AV Club

B+ 88%

Office (Hua li shang ban zu) (2015)

"For his first official foray into the genre, To brings his usual knack for cutting movement and stunningly composing figures against space to a world of pure stylization." ‐AV Club
Posted Sep 24, 2015
C 74%

The Keeping Room (2015)

"Another lurid exploitation film classed up with moody lighting and character monologues, with none of the authentic regional flavor or amateur energy that gave real grindhouse flicks their tang." ‐AV Club
Posted Sep 24, 2015
C- 9%

Stonewall (2015)

"The big problem is that Stonewall is fundamentally confused, mixed up to the point where a viewer wouldn't be able to tell why the Stonewall Riots happened if they didn't already know." ‐AV Club
Posted Sep 24, 2015
C+ 69%

Wolf Totem (2015)

"The movie lacks the kind of animating vision that would make its big-screen National Geographic covers ... into something more." ‐AV Club
Posted Sep 10, 2015
B 64%

The Visit (2015)

"Following a creative low period that found the director trying his hand at effects-driven fantasy and sci-fi, it can't help but come across as a comeback." ‐AV Club
Posted Sep 10, 2015
B- 15%

The Transporter Refueled (2015)

"Refueled isn't a good movie by most metrics, but it is consistently committed to mainlining the basest action-movie pleasures at the expense of damn near everything else." ‐AV Club
Posted Sep 3, 2015
C 35%

Dragon Blade (Tian jiang xiong shi) (2015)

"Lee displays only glimmers of the cartoonish, gonzo sensibility that once made him seem like an interesting talent. In its place is strained seriousness and a butt-ugly digital palette of tan and sand." ‐AV Club

Queen of Earth (2015)

"Not all of Queen Of Earth gels perfectly, but when it does, it can be breathtaking." ‐AV Club
Posted Aug 25, 2015
C- 45%

No Escape (2015)

"Despite its illegible chase scenes, awkward slow-motion shots, and fumbling attempts at political commentary, No Escape manages to be intermittently interesting, thanks to an off-beat supporting turn from Pierce Brosnan." ‐AV Club

American Ultra (2015)

"It's demented, occasionally inspired, and often very funny." ‐AV Club

She's Funny That Way (2015)

"Broad, occasionally clunky, sometimes funny, scattered with poignant grace notes, and, in its own peculiar way, endearing." ‐AV Club

Air (2015)

"At least it's interesting to look at, if only at first." ‐AV Club

Straight Outta Compton (2015)

"There's little to distinguish the movie from any number of overlong hit-by-hit music biopics of the nodding-approvingly-from-behind-a-mixing-console variety." ‐AV Club
Posted Aug 13, 2015
B 65%

Ricki And The Flash (2015)

"As in Demme's best early work (Handle With Care, Melvin & Howard), there is both an affection for a uniquely American type of oddball and a clear-eyed sense of their foibles." ‐AV Club
Posted Aug 6, 2015
C+ 56%

Paper Towns (2015)

"Despite its glimmers of self-awareness, Paper Towns works neither as a teen romance nor as a subversion of the same." ‐AV Club
