56% 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

96% 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

89% 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

5/5 100% 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 63% Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary (2017) Informative and, at times, touching. ‐ amNewYork

4/4 87% 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

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 61% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) There are simply way too many [poorly executed] moments ... to recommend this without serious reservations.‐ Guardian

52% 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

4/5 45% Song to Song (2017) A beautiful, melancholic rush of imagery, dizzying the senses at every turn. ‐ Guardian

72% 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 24% Table 19 (2017) Goes from (alleged) comedy to serious drama with all the subtlety of a ten year-old playing Mario Kart.‐ Guardian

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

5/5 96% Mudbound (2017) Mixing poetic voiceover and gorgeous cinematography, time and again the frame fills with extraordinary observations and grace notes.‐ Guardian

9% 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

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

97% The Big Sick (2017) The Big Sick doesn't need resuscitation from cheap jokes; its strength comes from a deeper place.‐ Vanity Fair

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

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

100% Columbus (2017) A clever and compelling exploration into how physical structures can come to represent emotional landmarks in our personal lives.‐ Vanity Fair

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

95% Paterson (2016) Jim Jarmusch and Paterson: here is the most beautiful match in the world.‐ Vanity Fair

3/5 55% 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

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

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

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

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
