T-Meter Title | Year Review
100% The Work (2017) ... The Work is a beautiful film, all the more so because of its willingness to step into the fear and find a raw, unremitting beauty in the witnessing of healing. - 4:3 EDIT

Recommended 71% Napalm (2017) t's in the natty particulars and the way Lanzmann remembers them-slow, honest, sometimes arduous-that Napalm finds its value as a cultural document and political statement. - 4:3 EDIT

Recommended 88% Searchers (Maliglutit) (2016) Maliglutit might not be the rollicking high-energy masterpiece of its predecessor, but its value lies elsewhere, in its meticulous preservation of an endangered lifestyle. - 4:3 EDIT

Not Recommended 86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Instead of a war film about a brave hero's comeuppance, Gibson has remade his Christ film, this time with his martyr in khaki. - 4:3 EDIT

Highly Recommended 86% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) This is a riot of a movie, drenched in sunny naivete and paced at an open, lackadaisical beat. - 4:3 EDIT

Recommended 63% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) The times they are a-changin': a frat comedy with a gender-balanced main cast, a non-judgemental gay wedding and nary a frat boy in sight. - 4:3 EDIT
Read More | Posted May 18, 2016
Strongly Not Recommended 22% The Boss (2016) The Boss is a smug, tacky and indefensible cavalcade of free-market conservative values dressed up in innocent buffoonery, too vulgar for children and too dumb for adults. - 4:3 EDIT

Not Recommended 74% Louder Than Bombs (2016) Louder Than Bombs feels at times so heavily burdened by its own sense of self-seriousness that it ultimately comes off as paper-thin. - 4:3 EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2016
Recommended 95% Son of Saul (2015) Son of Saul is a sober cinematic aide-mémoire that lives and breathes with the testimony of a thousand others. - 4:3 EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 4, 2016
Not Recommended 91% The Martian (2015) When it comes time for the inevitable 'triumph-of-the-human-spirit' that necessitates this regurgitated survival narrative, all that computes is smugness and nationalism. - 4:3 EDIT

Recommended 93% Queen of Earth (2015) Elizabeth Moss gives a scorchingly down-to-earth performance as Catherine, a woman on the cusp of a colossal mental breakdown. - 4:3 EDIT

Recommended 60% Joy (2015) It's laissez-faire in cheap white-gold jewelry; an Old Hollywood knock off with more personality than the real thing. - 4:3 EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2016
Recommended 46% Knight of Cups (2016) There is much to see -- and to feel -- in Knight of Cups, a film about reaching beyond the superficial in order to redeem enlightened perspectives. - 4:3 EDIT

Not Recommended 78% The Revenant (2015) Iñárritu's film has a few brief moments of promise, revelation and sheer visceral gratification, but it's ultimately bloated with artless mimicry. - 4:3 EDIT
