3/4 67% Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary (2017) Informative and, at times, touching. ‐ amNewYork

4/4 86% Norman (Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer) (2017) A minor New York masterpiece.‐ amNewYork

91% 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
97% 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 58% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) There are simply way too many [poorly executed] moments ... to recommend this without serious reservations.‐ Guardian

49% 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

2/5 50% 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

4/5 45% 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

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 18% Planetarium (2016) 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 20% Table 19 (2017) Goes from (alleged) comedy to serious drama with all the subtlety of a ten year-old playing Mario Kart.‐ Guardian

3/4 78% Kiki (2017) Positivity sparkles in every sequence‐ amNewYork

4/5 99% Get Out (2017) [Jordan] Peele's first feature is strong‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
5/5 100% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
5/5 96% Mudbound (2017) Mixing poetic voiceover and gorgeous cinematography, time and again the frame fills with extraordinary observations and grace notes.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2017
9% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) This movie is a trash masterpiece.‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
41% 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
94% 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
97% The Big Sick (2017) The Big Sick doesn't need resuscitation from cheap jokes; its strength comes from a deeper place.‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
67% 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
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
No Score Yet Long Strange Trip (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
100% 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 26, 2017
3/5 31% The Yellow Birds (2017) Moors excels at creating mood.‐ Guardian
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
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
95% Paterson (2016) Jim Jarmusch and Paterson: here is the most beautiful match in the world.‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2016
17% Assassin's Creed (2016) A picture bound to please just about no one.‐ Vanity Fair

C+ 31% Passengers (2016) "If you aren't nauseated by the ethics, it's quite engaging."‐ The Playlist

4/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) This is a movie made for fans.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2016
41% Office Christmas Party (2016) The familiar dinguses can actually be quite entertaining.‐ Vanity Fair

19% Inferno (2016) When you want to put down Sky Mall for a few minutes, Inferno will be right there, on the back of the seat in front of you.‐ Vanity Fair

100% Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016) A career-best performance by the increasingly essential Isabelle Huppert‐ Vanity Fair

40% Why Him? (2016) For airplane viewing or something to stream, the answer is: Sure, why not?‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2016
3/5 54% Rules Don't Apply (2016) It doesn't make sense as a comedy, it doesn't quite work as a drama, and it doesn't follow the typical roadmap of a biopic, but Rules Don't Apply is strangely compelling nonetheless.‐ Guardian

90% Elle (2016) I can't exactly call Elle a movie I feel good about liking, but I can't get it out of my head, either.‐ Vanity Fair
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2016
4/5 92% The Eagle Huntress (2016) In addition to the feelgood, family-friendly aspects (along with Daisy Ridley, Star Wars' Rey, narrating), there are wonderful glimpses of this unique society's non-ornithological customs.‐ Guardian

4/5 100% Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang (2016) Even the most art-averse cynic will recognise the blood, sweat and tears that went in to creating this strange and beautiful experience.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2016
4/5 100% Zoology (Zoologiya) (2016) Zoology isn't just about a person who has grown a tail, but a tale of personal growth.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2016
4/5 96% 13th (2016) "Prisons are the new plantations!" may seem like sloganeering from a far-left protestor, but DuVernay's effective film draws a strong, straight line from the abolition of slavery to today's mass incarceration epidemic, explaining its root cause: money.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2016
1/5 No Score Yet Clinton, Inc. (2016) Another lo-fi attempt to sway the election crashes into select cinemas with a set of vicious attacks and a lack of anything resembling a revelation.‐ Guardian

1/5 33% Masterminds (2016) A tooth extraction without painkillers would have been far more enjoyable.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2016

4/5 64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) Tim Burton's best (non-musical) live-action movie for 20 years.‐ Guardian

4/5 57% The Limehouse Golem (2016) Just when you think you never want to see another 1880s London prostitute get stabbed by a mysterious psychopath, along comes a movie like this that puts a nice spin on it.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2016
4/5 62% Carrie Pilby (2017) This is, ultimately, a very happy and upbeat film, and one with a very clear moral center.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2016
4/5 80% Barry (2016) Barry is a real movie about real problems, that just happens to be about a real person.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
2/5 57% Trespass Against Us (2017) Moments of excitement don't make up for what is ultimately a slow burn study of characters that aren't nearly as interesting as the movie thinks they are.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2016
64% Voyage of Time: Life's Journey (2016) I can hear some of your rolling your eyes all the way from here, but if anyone is going to take you on said voyage, let it be a filmmaker as skilled as Terrence Malick.‐ Vanity Fair
