4/4 75% The Way Back (2011) "The man-versus-the-natural world story is in Weir's wheelhouse, and Harris and Farrell get into a scene-stealing duel. Worth the trek. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 12, 2016
3/4 95% The Woodmans (2011) "This intimate film is a fascinating glimpse into the emotions and art of a New York family whose bright star committed suicide 30 years ago at age 22. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 12, 2016
2/4 89% Applause (Applaus) (2010) "Though much of Applause... feels confining and self-aggrandizing, there's no denying that you can't take your eyes off star Paprika Steen. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Apr 8, 2016
61% Concussion (2015) "In the midst of an ongoing debate, Concussion takes a side, but it's not bullheaded, nor is it fearful. Like the best films of its genre, it knows veracity is the best defense. " ‐ TIME Magazine
Posted Dec 24, 2015
3/4 81% Chi-Raq (2015) "It's got seriousness and a hotbed of styles, but most crucially, the disarming 'Chi-Raq' never loses its cool. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 3, 2015
1/4 26% Every Thing Will Be Fine (2015) "The first 3-D movie that makes you think nothing is there. " ‐ New York Post
Posted Dec 3, 2015
34% By The Sea (2015) "Jolie Pitt, directing herself for the first time, is as brave as ever, even when making a movie filled with opaque, Euro-style artiness. " ‐ TIME Magazine
Posted Nov 12, 2015
74% Trumbo (2015) "A sly, admirable but single-minded bio-pic. " ‐ TIME Magazine
Posted Nov 5, 2015
65% Spectre (2015) "Mendes, a cerebral director who balances action and erudition, lets us savor every conspiracy, chase and exotic locale. " ‐ TIME Magazine
Posted Nov 5, 2015
8% Rock the Kasbah (2015) "Its music-industry gags sit awkwardly next to war-zone jokes and cultural quips, landing all involved on a peace train to nowhere. " ‐ TIME Magazine
Posted Oct 22, 2015
91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "In his fourth pairing with Hanks, Spielberg again examines the furtive face of justice and issues another masterful ruling. " ‐ TIME Magazine

Posted Sep 24, 2015
4/5 93% A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story (2015) "She's inexhaustible, seemingly everywhere at once and, throughout director Sara Hirsh Bordo's unblinking, well-directed film, she is absolutely and fearlessly herself. Which is exactly as it should be -- the world needs Lizzie Velasquez. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 24, 2015
5/5 79% Racing Extinction (2015) "If a documentary can be both alarming and oddly reassuring, it's the gripping splash of cold cinematic water "Racing Extinction." " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 21, 2015
4/5 72% Pawn Sacrifice (2015) "The challenge of "Pawn Sacrifice" was to capture the colorful Cold War '70s, the inner strategies of one man's paranoid mind and make chess cinematic. Check, and mate. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 18, 2015
3/5 75% Black Mass (2015) "Black Mass isn't The Departed, and it's a bit too black and white. But movie mobster fans can relax, cause the movie doesn't need to have a hit taken out on it. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 17, 2015
4/5 94% Sicario (2015) "This dramatic thriller finds a spot somewhere between your brain and your stomach, and drills in. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 17, 2015
3/5 93% Breathe (2015) "Sarah's story doesn't track with reality, which is easy enough to predict. But what's overwhelming is how Laurent's film seems to understand the ache of tentative teenage friendship. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 10, 2015
3/5 86% A Brilliant Young Mind (2015) "The sensitive young genius story has been done to death, but apparently there's still room for the gentle nuance presented in "A Brilliant Young Mind." " ‐ New York Daily News

Posted Sep 9, 2015

Posted Sep 8, 2015
2/5 67% Break Point (2015) ""Break Point" looks good, and it has a big serve, but it's hard to love wholeheartedly. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 4, 2015
3/5 45% A Walk In The Woods (2015) "While older audiences will go for it, even viewers who haven't acquired the wisdom of age can learn something. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 3, 2015
2/5 22% Before We Go (2015) ""Before We Go" has to use every bit of its lead actors' appeal to overcome a script stuffed with practiced nonchalance and false notes. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 3, 2015

Posted Sep 3, 2015
4/5 76% Steve Jobs: Man in the Machine (2015) "The fact is that Jobs is a slippery subject who often attempted to windowshade the truth. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Sep 3, 2015
3/5 74% 7 Chinese Brothers (2015) "Call it quirky or observational or shaggy, but almost everything works. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 26, 2015
3/5 92% Queen of Earth (2015) "It's rare when a psychological drama gets us into a character's head without tricks or a voiceover. This drama from Alex Ross Perry burrows so deep that it's scary. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 26, 2015
2/5 45% No Escape (2015) "There's no fleeing the clunkiness in "No Escape." " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 25, 2015
3/5 97% Being Evel (2015) "Those who came of age during Knievel's rise, rise and fall will enjoy the fun moments. But this family-sanctioned film comes up short in terms of objectivity. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 20, 2015
1/5 8% Hitman: Agent 47 (2015) ""Hitman: Agent 47" is a by-the-numbers schlock action sequel that writes its own epitaph when a character mutters the dusty insult, "You're dead, too. You just don't know it yet." " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 20, 2015
3/5 66% Digging For Fire (2015) "There's a lot under the surface in director Joe Swanberg's "Digging for Fire." The lived-in atmosphere makes the mood right to bring up emotions that the characters - or the audience - may not see coming. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 20, 2015
2/5 43% American Ultra (2015) ""American Ultra" is an American-style movie that needed more ultra. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 19, 2015

Posted Aug 19, 2015
2/5 38% After Words (2015) "Feldman trusts his actors to charm us, which they do - up to a point. But there's only so much that can be wrung out of this spinster-meets-exotic stud, "Summertime"-lite affair. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 19, 2015
0/5 27% Final Girl (2015) "Breslin, whose recent resume hasn't lived up to her Oscar nomination for "Little Miss Sunshine," needs to find something worthy of her talents. An Oscar nominee shouldn't even watch "Final Girl," much less star in it. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 13, 2015
4/5 83% Mistress America (2015) "Full of smarts, sly insight and New York personality. As a feather in its jaunty hat, the movie also reinvigorates the art of screwball comedy. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 13, 2015
1/5 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "It's slow, lethargic, utterly lacking in charm and undeserving of the Cold War setting that is its best trait. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 13, 2015
1/5 25% Dark Places (2015) "Dingy and dumb. Instead of a quickened pulse, it results in multiple yawns and a "So, that's it? Meh." " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 7, 2015
2/5 68% Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet (2015) "A work of words as lovely as "The Prophet" deserves a better artistic interpretation than this animated venture, which consists mostly of pedestrian, '70s-quality visuals. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 6, 2015
1/5 9% Fantastic Four (2015) "A self-destruct mode is apparently automatically included in any film adaptation of Marvel's "First Family of Superheroes." This is the third attempt at a movie franchise - and the third lame result. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 6, 2015
2/5 65% Ricki And The Flash (2015) "The story here, like a lot of bar bands, goes loud to cover up mediocrity. When Streep sings, though, so does the film. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Aug 6, 2015
3/5 94% Best Of Enemies (2015) "The bruises inflicted that summer are now visible daily on so many channels, but they're often inflicted by combatants who are far less mighty. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jul 28, 2015

Posted Jul 28, 2015
3/5 56% Paper Towns (2015) "If you're searching for smart, soulful teen entertainment, you can start looking inside "Paper Towns." " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jul 23, 2015
0/5 16% Pixels (2015) "Moronic jokes, lame action and depictions of middle-aged neuroses. In other words: a Sandler movie. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jul 22, 2015
2/5 61% Southpaw (2015) "When boxing cliches work, they can deliver a knockout. When they don't, as in "Southpaw," we get just punch-drunk. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jul 22, 2015
1/5 83% The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015) "The experiment's inherent drama is exacted with a tin ear and a cheesy style. " ‐ New York Daily News
Posted Jul 16, 2015
3/5 100% Famous Nathan (2015) "There's a lot to chew on in this family-centered documentary, but the wonderful archival footage of Coney Island adds enough garnish to justify the time. " ‐ New York Daily News
