4/10 67% Golden Exits (2018) Unfortunately, the women in Golden Exits don't have much to do other than brood, stew, and complain about the men in their lives.‐ Under the Radar

76% Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres!) (2018) This is a quintessential Midnight Madness-emphasis on the "madness"-experience. It may not hold together, and it may be style over substance to the nth degree, but it's a unique and singular vision...‐ Under the Radar

78% The Day After (Geu-hu) (2018) The Day After is very slight, which isn't a problem, just an observation that it's incredibly slice-of-life.‐ Under the Radar

70% Kodachrome (2018) The emotional resonance is there, even if it's cloying and manipulative. Kodachrome is often funny, and the cast plays off one another with comfortable ease. ‐ Under the Radar

99% Lady Bird (2017) There are certain films that strike a personal chord, and Lady Bird is one of those despite the fact that I am both male and Canadian and this is set in Sacramento featuring Saoirse Ronan as the lead.‐ Under the Radar

9/10 87% Annihilation (2018) The kaleidoscopic Annihilation is bound to dazzle and frustrate, spark debate and dismissal.‐ Under the Radar

1/10 28% Leatherface (2017) Obviously, the lesson that will be gleaned from all this will be an origin story of Jaws. ‐ Under the Radar

6.5/10 75% Wakefield (2017) Robin Swicord put the film in head and at the hands of Cranston's Howard, not to champion his decisions or character, but to show the audience a portrait of a man who needs to win even when he loses.‐ Under the Radar

7/10 84% My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea (2017) Despite the numerous problems with character and the generally flat script, it's an exhilarating piece of animation that breaks conventions and teases at further possibilities in future projects.‐ Under the Radar

3.5/10 18% Queen of the Desert (2017) [Queen of the Desert] lacks even the remotest hook beyond curiosity about the primary subject, and even that fades.‐ Under the Radar

7/10 93% Neruda (2016) Larrain's film is still worth watching for its highs and despite the odd misstep, it's a fine film that flirts with being something greater.‐ Under the Radar

7.5/10 100% Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016) Things to Come is a quiet and reflective piece worth a contemplative look.‐ Under the Radar

5/10 25% Five Nights in Maine (2016) While inherently fascinating in its analysis of grief ... it has difficulty finding its hook.‐ Under the Radar

3/10 55% Can We Take a Joke? (2016) The answer isn't necessarily one way or the other, but Can We Take a Joke? doesn't explore this societal issue with any depth or nuance.‐ Under the Radar

4/10 68% Diary of a Chambermaid (Journal d'une femme de chambre) (2016) Diary of a Chambermaid would make a decent first act to a television miniseries. As a film, it ends in an unfortunate whimper.‐ Under the Radar

5/10 12% Papa: Hemingway in Cuba (2016) There are elements of truth and sublimity, but it wanders too much into clichés and easy plot devices.‐ Under the Radar

7/10 88% Havana Motor Club (2016) Havana Motor Club should be accessible for automobile aficionados and novices alike.‐ Under the Radar

1/10 29% Backtrack (2016) Other than the poor CGI and the sleepy performances, there's nothing memorable, which is [Backtrack's] biggest crime.‐ Under the Radar

6/10 81% Southbound (2016) Anthology movies, almost by definition, are mixed bags ... Southbound is no different.‐ Under the Radar

5/10 73% A Perfect Day (2016) It's frustrating how close this is to being a good movie. The pieces are there. The follow through isn't.‐ Under the Radar

6/10 43% Over Your Dead Body (Kuime) (2014) Instead of relying on frenetic insanity and buckets of viscera, this movie sets an uneasy tone where tension slowly crawls to its peak.‐ Under the Radar

8.5/10 95% Son of Saul (2015) Son of Saul hammers the theme of helplessness, and it sometimes gets a bit redundant, but it carves out a series of images that will be incredibly difficult to suppress.‐ Under the Radar

5.5/10 58% The Emperor's New Clothes (2015) The Emperor's New Clothes is a scathing indictment of the rich.‐ Under the Radar

8/10 79% Flowers (Loreak) (2015) Javier Agirre's cinematography is beautifully composed. Shot after shot would be at home in a photography magazine.‐ Under the Radar

3/10 10% Asthma (2015) Like its protagonist, the film is doomed by how small of an imprint every aspect leaves.‐ Under the Radar
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2015
2/10 28% Momentum (2015) Momentum is caught between being pulpy, mindless entertainment and socially-conscious commentary on government. It doesn't do either competently.‐ Under the Radar
