71% The Hallow (The Woods) (2015) "John Nolan's old-school effects are wicked good, and Martijn van Broekhuizen's mossy photography is pleasingly sinister." ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 5, 2015
41% Love (2015) "As if all its artistic energy had been gobbled up by the fornication, "Love" has nothing left with which to build its characters or set them in motion." ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 29, 2015
53% I Smile Back (2015) "A wearying loop of slug-snort-crash that leaves Ms. Silverman out on a ledge and the audience with no way to reach her." ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 22, 2015
89% Bone Tomahawk (2015) "A witty fusion of western, horror and comedy that gallops to its own beat." ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 22, 2015
61% Extraordinary Tales (2015) "The best sections reverberate with the power of Poe's words. As such, they serve as apt tributes to yarns that will always be more formidable on the page than on the screen." ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 22, 2015
92% In My Father's House (2015) "Watching Mr. Tillman as he cheerfully embraces sobriety to please his son, and is rebuffed by his former street pals for doing so, we see a poignant meditation on how our expectations of loved ones can become a burden that not everyone can carry." ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 8, 2015
No Score Yet A Woman Like Me "The rambling, uncertain tone engendered by Ms. Sichel's striving to align her Buddhist beliefs with the harsh realities of terminal illness also weakens her story's gravitational pull." ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 8, 2015
79% Northern Soul (2015) "Funny and feisty, gritty and sometimes grim, this first feature from the photographer Elaine Constantine delivers a sweaty snapshot of a very specific time and place." ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 1, 2015
62% This Changes Everything (2015) "If, as many seem to believe, we are presiding over the possible annihilation of our species, then maybe we need a kick in the pants more than a reassuring hug." ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 1, 2015
98% Finders Keepers (2015) "Shockingly funny, weirdly touching ..." ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 1, 2015
96% #DEL Do Not Merge "Shockingly funny, weirdly touching ..." ‐ New York Times
Posted Sep 25, 2015
11% Pay the Ghost (2015) "Sludgy greens and smudged blacks assault the eyes, and crashing sound cues accompany every scare - dead giveaways of a director, Uli Edel, who trusts neither his audience nor his images." ‐ New York Times
Posted Sep 25, 2015
79% Racing Extinction (2015) "If you've ever wondered what a breaking heart sounds like, it's right here in the futile warble of the last male of a species of songbird, singing for a mate that will never come." ‐ New York Times
Posted Sep 17, 2015
86% Goodnight Mommy (2015) "Brahms's "Cradle Song" might play at the beginning, but that doesn't mean anyone here has the slightest chance of sleeping." ‐ New York Times
Posted Sep 10, 2015
78% Z For Zachariah (2015) "This minimalist but deeply affecting morality play slowly tugs you in." ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 27, 2015
74% 7 Chinese Brothers (2015) "Considering how aimless its screenplay, how lost its hero and how unglamorous its setting, Bob Byington's "7 Chinese Brothers" is remarkably appealing." ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 27, 2015
40% She's Funny That Way (2015) "There's barely a whiz-bang punch line or smoothly executed setup to be found in a movie that longs to be a sparkling bedroom comedy and winds up a tortured, fizz-free farce." ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 20, 2015
8% Hitman: Agent 47 (2015) "Dumb as dirt and just as generic, "Hitman: Agent 47" trades brains for bullets and characters for windup toys." ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 20, 2015
88% Guidance (2015) "Pursuing his character's self-destructive, often tasteless agenda, Mr. Mills (drawing on his own experiences and doing triple duty as the director and screenwriter) gives a performance of rancid single-mindedness." ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 20, 2015
89% Meru (2015) "Thankfully free of the usual triumph-of-the-will score, "Meru" is an ultrasmooth blend of conventional documentary techniques - the talking-head interview; the back-in-the-day photograph - and uncommon ambition." ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 13, 2015
78% Assassination (2015) "Brimming with characters - many in near-identical military garb - and bristling with double crosses, this unnecessarily lengthy homage to resistance chooses breadth over depth at every turn." ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 6, 2015
68% Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet (2015) "This collection of eight mini-sermons falls flat." ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 6, 2015
14% Jenny's Wedding (2015) "One of the many irritants in this trite, well-intentioned lecture on tolerance: The audience is always several moves ahead of the script." ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 30, 2015
72% Five Star (2015) "Slow and steady, and with remarkable assuredness, Keith Miller's "Five Star" plays mean-streets drama in the lowest of keys." ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 23, 2015
No Score Yet Guidelines "This deceptively simple documentary by Jean-François Caissy regards the turbulence of adolescence as a negotiation between risk and restraint." ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 20, 2015
No Score Yet Northern Limit Line (2015) "This jingoistic war-at-sea movie, redeemed by neither narrative momentum nor fully formed characters, will test the patience of the most ardent military fanatic." ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 17, 2015
74% What We Did on Our Holiday (2015) "A damp-eyed comedy whose banal title isn't the only thing needing improvement." ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 9, 2015
52% Escobar: Paradise Lost (2015) "Nick might usurp most of the screen time, but it's Mr. Del Toro, face flickering from benevolent to vicious and body heaving with literal and symbolic weight, who seizes the film." ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 25, 2015
81% Batkid Begins (2015) "Marveling without questioning, the movie is content to package the phenomenon and coast on its feel-good wave. Yet, somewhere around the midpoint, I began to wonder who was most thrilled by all this fuss." ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 25, 2015
83% Eden (2015) "Perceptive and compassionate, "Eden" recognizes how the thrill of artistic freedom can curdle in the heat of the marketplace and the demands of daily life. Yet the movie's refusal to foster regret, or have Paul repudiate his passion, is telling." ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 19, 2015
38% The Face Of An Angel (2015) "Rambling, frustrating and wholly uninvolving, "The Face of an Angel" swarms with ideas that have no place to land." ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 19, 2015
90% District 9 (2009) "The wonder is that despite its obvious roots, District 9 feels staggeringly original. " ‐ NPR
Posted Jun 17, 2015
0% The 11th Hour (2015) "A troubling example of what can only be called a fertility thriller." ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 11, 2015
86% Doomsdays (2015) "Wrapping an existential question in the random rhythms of the road movie, "Doomsdays" comes at you sideways, its melancholy catching you off guard." ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 4, 2015
0% Unfreedom (2015) "A hard-line thriller derailed by messy editing and narrative silliness." ‐ New York Times
Posted May 29, 2015
63% The True Cost (2015) "Offering few solutions beyond a single fair-trade fashion company, "The True Cost" - whose serene interludes compete with sickening recordings of Black Friday shopping riots and so-called clothing haul videos - stirs and saddens." ‐ New York Times
Posted May 28, 2015
94% I Believe in Unicorns (2015) "Like its heroine, "I Believe in Unicorns" is faltering and undeveloped, but with a wiry core that belies its apparent uncertainty." ‐ New York Times
Posted May 28, 2015
92% When Marnie Was There (2015) "Beneath its calm, exquisitely detailed surface, "When Marnie Was There" bubbles with half-formed ideas and undeveloped themes." ‐ New York Times
Posted May 21, 2015
19% The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) (2015) "So much effort; so little entertainment." ‐ New York Times
Posted May 21, 2015
76% The Connection (2015) "How can you dislike a film that signals a killing with "Bang Bang" and a villain with "The Snake"?" ‐ New York Times
Posted May 14, 2015
66% Dark Star: HR Giger's World (2015) "This disordered portrait seems heavily influenced by its equally jumbled setting." ‐ New York Times
Posted May 14, 2015
16% Playing It Cool (2015) "Proceeding with a strained quirkiness that infects much more than the names of its main characters, this first feature by Justin Reardon is a paean to the kind of narcissism that sucks the air out of every scene." ‐ New York Times
Posted May 7, 2015
70% Marie's Story (2015) "Though based on a remarkable true story, this clichéd tear-jerker is barely interested in Marguerite's revolutionary teaching methods, focusing instead on the intensity of her connection to Marie." ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 30, 2015
72% Soul Boys Of The Western World (2015) "You won't be convinced that Spandau Ballet was the best band of the 1980s. Even if they did have the best bums." ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 28, 2015
79% 24 Days (2015) "Sadly, "24 Days" isn't nearly as involving as it should be." ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 23, 2015
77% Felix & Meira (2015) "This tenderly observed love story (by the director, Maxime Giroux) isn't about religion - or its lack - but about the attraction of difference and the undeniable need to feel alive." ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 16, 2015
60% In The Courtyard (2015) "Falling back repeatedly on in-your-face symbolism - especially with regard to the specter of decline - Mr. Salvadori seems content to idle in neutral." ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 9, 2015
63% The Harvest (2015) "There may be little to give you the collywobbles, but there's quite a lot to enjoy, with Ms. Morton heading the list." ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 9, 2015
91% Manos Sucias (2015) "The light is menacing, the mood watchful and the action scenes have a crude, desperate energy that gets the job done." ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 2, 2015
57% The Girl Is In Trouble (2015) "Onah - whose movie began life as his thesis project at New York University - seems more keen on showing how the tensions of immigration and gentrification have shaped the Lower East Side than on fashioning a credible thriller." ‐ New York Times
Posted Apr 2, 2015
87% 52 Tuesdays (2015) "A frustratingly fragmented yet warmly intimate portrait of an evolving bond that frays but doesn't sever." ‐ New York Times
