No Score Yet Girls with Balls (2018) Girls With Balls scores some points for its Z-movie conceits but could have benefited from stronger writing and direction.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion (Astérix - Le secret de la potion magique) (2018) Unlike other Gallic attempts at this kind of big budget tongue-in-cheek cartoon, at least the directors know how to pull theirs off with slick efficiency and a fair amount of wit, even if the scenario itself feels far too simplistic.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2018
No Score Yet A Man in a Hurry (Un homme pressé) (2018) Luchini's indelible turn goes a long way, making for a virtual one-man-show that can be both funny and emotional, even if the character he plays is a total corporate snob.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet A German Youth (Une Jeunesse Allemande) (2015) This densely layered documentary reveals how members of a disillusioned post-war generation gradually transformed into left-wing militants whose actions would have deadly consequences for all involved.‐ Hollywood Reporter

78% Liz and the Blue Bird (2018) Yamada has a very keen eye for depicting adolescent malaise in visually evocative terms, and Liz and the Blue Bird could have benefited from even more flights of fancy than she allows for here.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
No Score Yet An Impossible Love (Un amour impossible) (2018) An intimate, well-played if overstretched family saga.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2018
No Score Yet Sophia Antipolis (2018) A compelling exploration of a hidden and haunting part of France.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2018
No Score Yet Belleville Cop (Le Flic de Belleville) (2018) It's a B-level throwback to the 1980s with zero sophistication or irony, offering up a few shout-outs to the epoch... but ultimately feeling like it was made back then and haphazardly dug up in a DVD bargain bin. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2018
No Score Yet Nothing to Hide (Le jeu) (2018) Both deftly conceived and a tad too superficial, probing our technology-driven times but never digging far enough beneath the surface.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2018
100% Lindy Lou, Juror Number 2 (2017) A sobering study of death and remorse.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2018
No Score Yet The Brand New Adventures of Aladdin (Alad'2) (2018) Watchable in the sense that if you were on one of those airplanes where they only show movies on an overhead screen, and this was playing, well then maybe you'd watch it without sound.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2018
No Score Yet Ma fille (2018) As a portrait of modern-day Paris and its discontents, Ma Fille packs a subtle punch.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2018
No Score Yet Paris Pigalle (L'amour est une fête) (2018) Basically plays out like a French Boogie Nights, with a comparable amount of sex, drugs, celluloid and music montages, but without compelling characters or conflicts.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2018
80% Mothers' Instinct (Duelles) (2018) Half the time, you don't know if you should be rolling or shuddering in your seat, though you mostly do the latter.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2018
54% The Wind (2018) It's refreshing to see such an original stab at this type of indie genre-bender, especially one told from a strictly female point of view.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2018
80% Ghost Fleet (2018) A chilling account of modern-day slavery.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
82% Blind Spot (2018) Blind Spot gradually wears out its welcome by failing to add enough substance in front of the camera, even if what's happening behind the camera remains of interest.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
37% Viper Club (2018) A movie that, despite an intriguing subject matter and a surprise ending that leaves you with more questions than answers, ultimately feels stronger in its message than in its execution.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2018
No Score Yet The Dive (2018) A movie that can be a bit hard to relate to at first but eventually lures you in with its strong writing and performances.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2018
No Score Yet The Great Darkened Days (La grande noirceur) (2018) Gradually works its magic as a beaten and bewildered Philippe enters the final phase of his long, strange trip.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2018
72% Maya (2018) Very much a Hansen-Love affair: from its gentle and meandering narrative to its fine sense of detail to its tender chronicle of a character gradually overcoming trauma and seeing life anew.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
85% High Life (2018) The director's ardent fans will likely find much to admire here - especially the fact that the 72-year-old Denis remains a fearless filmmaker who, in her own way, has gone this time where no man (or woman) has gone before.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
50% A Faithful Man (L'homme fidèle) (2018) A Faithful Man shows that Garrel has promise as a filmmaker, with a knack for directing actors and a welcome sense of Gallic wit.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
No Score Yet Ulysses & Mona (2018) A touching, deadpan portrait of the artist as a disheveled Frenchman.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2018
43% Jessica Forever (2018) Jessica Forever sits on the border that separates the art house from the grindhouse, even if it never fully convinces in either sense. But it deserves credit for remaining so stubbornly in between two worlds.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2018
100% Before the Frost (Før frosten) (2018) A bleak and fiercely acted tale of rural strife.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2018
79% Hotel Mumbai (2019) The film is both gripping in its execution - although a two-hours-plus running time feels a bit stretched - and totally bland in what it's trying to say, with characters who don't really stand out on screen.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2018
No Score Yet Her Job (2018) A well-observed study of one woman's unlikely liberation.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
33% The Predator (2018) Black's movie is so cleverly over-the-top that it's easy and pleasurable enough to watch, though never exactly scary or suspenseful.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
No Score Yet Tel Aviv on Fire (2018) A witty and warm-hearted look at a divided land.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2018
No Score Yet Keep Going (Continuer) (2018) This tense and engrossingly performed two-hander feels a bit truncated in its final act but otherwise makes for a solid addition to Lafosse's string of anxious, edgy and sometimes deadly family affairs.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
No Score Yet The Crosses (Las cruces) (2018) A stark and chilling reflection on a crime that went unreported for several decades and remains unpunished to this day.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
100% Keep an Eye Out (Au Poste!) (2018) Like Dupieux's other movies Keep an Eye Out is chock full of bizarre happenings that don't really add up to much but are nonetheless well orchestrated and amusing to watch.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2018
86% Black Tide (Fleuve noir) (2018) A compelling, if over-the-top, French noir.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2018
70% Four Corners (2013) An intense if somewhat overwrought foray into South African street violence.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
No Score Yet Looking for Teddy (Le Doudou) (2018) Teddy takes a decent concept and rushes it to the screen without bothering to get the script right, and the result is a few good gags mixed with lots of caricature and phony sentiment.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
83% Chuck Steel: Night of the Trampires (2018) If you're willing to just sit back and enjoy all the nods, winks and over-the-top violence, Chuck Steel is a rather fun ride, with Mort and his animation team faithfully re-creating the slick and sleazy aesthetics of bargain-bin action and horror flicks.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2018
No Score Yet Funan (2018) A realistic and moving account of a major 20th century atrocity.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2018
No Score Yet Seder-Masochism (2018) Despite the nuttiness of the whole project (this film is not for everyone), we're ultimately left with an understanding of what Passover is and what is isn't, or rather, what it could be.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2018
No Score Yet The Tower (2018) An evocative view of the Palestinian crisis.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
No Score Yet Wall (2017) A fascinating study of the Israeli-Palestinian divide.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
No Score Yet The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir (2018) A winsome if all-too-saccharine migration adventure.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2018
No Score Yet MILF (2018) Movie I'd Like to Forget.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 29, 2018
100% The Snatch Thief (El Motoarrebatador) (2018) A well-observed drama of deceit.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 19, 2018
76% Knife + Heart (Un couteau dans le coeur) (2018) A deliciously campy slasher flick exploring the dark side of desire.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
No Score Yet To the Four Winds (Libre) (2018) Even if the film leaves one with a bitter aftertaste there is no denying Herrou's valiant efforts to aid his fellow man.‐ Hollywood Reporter
