Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet 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

64% 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

No Score Yet Ghost Fleet (2018) A chilling account of modern-day slavery.‐ Hollywood Reporter

80% 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

No Score Yet 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

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

64% 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

93% 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

No Score Yet 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
No Score Yet 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
No Score Yet Before the Frost (Før frosten) (2018) A bleak and fiercely acted tale of rural strife.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2018
77% Hotel Mumbai (2018) 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
34% 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
No Score Yet 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
No Score Yet Black Tide (Fleuve noir) (2018) A compelling, if over-the-top, French noir.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2018
78% 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

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
70% 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
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
0% Gotti (2018) The film is pretty terrible: poorly written, devoid of tension, ridiculous in spots and just plain dull in others.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
50% At War (En guerre) (2018) A generally gripping account of workers taking on the man.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018

100% Sir (2018) A modest yet effective tale of love and class.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
No Score Yet Cassandro the Exotico! (2018) It's a moving and sometimes amusing portrait of grit and glitter overcoming adversity...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
83% Woman at War (Kona fer í stríð) (2018) Offbeat, poignant and visually exquisite.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
22% Girls of the Sun (Les filles du soleil) (2018) At once mildly harrowing and completely over-the-top, intermittently intense yet so unsubtle it winds up doing damage to its own worthy discourse.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 13, 2018
No Score Yet Alone at My Wedding (Seule à mon mariage) (2018) A well-observed tale of one woman's exile and unhappy engagement.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 12, 2018
No Score Yet Treat Me Like Fire (Joueurs) (2018) It's not always credible, especially in terms of human behavior, but there's a stylized verve to the action that makes it fun to watch, while the filmmakers toss in a few good twists that pull the rug out from under you.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
75% To the Ends of the World (Les confins du monde) (2018) This skillfully crafted and superbly shot war movie suffers from some familiar plot mechanics and an overwhelming sense of doom, yet remains a compelling look at a conflict seldom depicted in French cinema.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
95% Birds of Passage (Pájaros de verano) (2018) A beautifully crafted, slow-burn crime saga steeped in native traditions.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
No Score Yet The Other Woman (Amoureux de ma femme) (2018) The Other Woman is an embarrassing and rather abject attempt by the otherwise talented Daniel Auteuil to direct a sexy rom-com for the 50-and-over set.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 1, 2018
100% Charm City (2018) Despite its dreary outlook, the film does offer a semblance of hope in the generosity, good humor and tenacious sang-froid of the people it portrays.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2018
No Score Yet Taxi 5 (2018) Truly a five-car pileup of a comedy, with jokes hitting the lowest common denominator and then hitting the ground, and a director at the helm who doesn't seem to know the first thing about his craft.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
84% Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero (2018) The well-assembled period piece could...appeal to children old enough to grasp its themes, while serving as a valuable educational tool to teach them about a war that ended nearly a century ago.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
50% Just a Breath Away (Dans la brume) (2018) The film ultimately lacks the emotional charge it needs.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2018
