51% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Luc Besson returns to sci-fi with a CGI wonderland of characters, setting, and action.‐ Popular Mechanics

2/5 17% The House (2017) Broad comedies are always something of a roll of the dice. And while The House isn't an absolute disaster, it's undeniable that this is one that's crapped out.‐ New York Daily News

92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Peter Parker aka Spider-Man aka the wise-crackin', science-tinkerin', shy-around-girls neighborhood crime-fighter is back. Not just back-home.‐ Popular Mechanics

86% Okja (2017) The movie zips around like a dropped firehose a bit when it comes to tone -- lovable, scary, silly, morbidly depressing, back to silly -- but good art can and maybe should do that.‐ Thrillist

16% The Mummy (2017) A corporate initiative masquerading as entertainment. They should have kept this under wraps.‐ Popular Mechanics

57% Redoubtable (Le redoutable) (2017) Hazanavicius is one of our weirder directors. His schtick is to parrot other styles, either with his parody Bond films (the two OSS 117 movies) or The Artist. But Le Redoutable is his best work, I think.‐ Vanity Fair

95% The Women's Balcony (Ismach Hatani) (2017) This light and predictable movie, with its overwhelming box office success, still offers tremendous insight into day-to-day Israeli society.‐ Village Voice

5/5 100% Visages, villages (2017) Visages, Villages is a movie about itself: the subjects are so warm and wonderful it's a wise move.‐ Guardian

88% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) If all this sounds complex, don't worry. Baumbach is nothing if not a careful screenwriter, and he teases out these relationships with grace and, above all, humor.‐ Vanity Fair

5/5 96% The Florida Project (2017) Things look grim for Halley and Moonee, but we can expect a lot from the people who brought their marvelous story to light.‐ Guardian

3/4 69% Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary (2017) Informative and, at times, touching. ‐ amNewYork

4/4 89% Norman (Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer) (2017) A minor New York masterpiece.‐ amNewYork

92% A Quiet Passion (2017) A Quiet Passion is one of the most unique and mesmerizing films of the year.‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2017
96% Graduation (Bacalaureat) (2017) What makes Graduation so marvelous is how the texture of the film springs from the situation. Each new complication to the script feels like a surgical insertion, mirroring Adrian's profession.‐ Vanity Fair

3/5 60% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) There are simply way too many [poorly executed] moments ... to recommend this without serious reservations.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2017
53% The Belko Experiment (2017) What pushes this movie past "dumb" into "reprehensible" is its glib attitude regarding the consequences of its own images.‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
2/5 43% The Most Hated Woman In America (2017) Its desultory storytelling and seesaw of tonal shifts is frustrating in a way that so many poor biographical films tend to be. It's a pity, as O'Hair is a heck of a historical figure and Melissa Leo is, in many scenes, quite gripping.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2017
4/5 43% Song to Song (2017) A beautiful, melancholic rush of imagery, dizzying the senses at every turn. ‐ Guardian

73% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) May just be the most British movie ever made. ‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
90% Raw (2017) Yes, it's true: this movie is gross as all hell. But it's also incredibly sharp, sensitive, and engaging, a coming-of-age story that everyone can relate to-minus, perhaps, a plot twist about eating human flesh.‐ Vanity Fair

4/5 14% Planetarium (2017) There are plenty of movies about movies that put a spotlight on creating movie magic. This may be the first one about actual magic in movies.‐ Guardian

1/5 24% Table 19 (2017) Goes from (alleged) comedy to serious drama with all the subtlety of a ten year-old playing Mario Kart.‐ Guardian

4/5 99% Get Out (2017) [Jordan] Peele's first feature is strong‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
5/5 98% Whose Streets? (2017) Whose Streets? depicts injustices that have always beleaguered the African American community, but this is a film that could only have been made now.‐ Guardian

4/5 27% Fist Fight (2017) Vulgar, brutal, surreal and extremely funny.‐ New York Daily News

10% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) This movie is a trash masterpiece.‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
42% A Cure For Wellness (2017) This movie's oddball structure isn't "dream logic"; it's more like sitting there as someone describes to you this crazy dream he had.‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2017
78% Brigsby Bear (2017) Brigsby Bear's strongest asset (well, after the gobs of in-universe verbiage that come spilling from James' mouth) is Kyle Mooney's extraordinary performance.‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2017
98% The Big Sick (2017) The Big Sick doesn't need resuscitation from cheap jokes; its strength comes from a deeper place.‐ Vanity Fair

70% Golden Exits (2017) Watching this tremendous, droll micro-masterpiece is like rummaging through a box of privileged misery and holding it up to a light.‐ Vanity Fair

100% Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of The Grateful Dead (2017) [This] film will make those who normally scoff at those patchouli-smelling ersatz flower children tap their feet, maybe even join them for a dance. ‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
98% Columbus (2017) A clever and compelling exploration into how physical structures can come to represent emotional landmarks in our personal lives.‐ Vanity Fair

Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2017
4/5 100% Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (2017) Self-deprecating bon mots, wordplay, song lyrics and perfectly timed occasional moans are what elevate this beyond simple "Keeping Up With" material.‐ Guardian

96% Paterson (2016) Jim Jarmusch and Paterson: here is the most beautiful match in the world.‐ Vanity Fair
