Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet A Paris Education (Mes provinciales) (2018) There's a conviction to the storytelling that can't be denied, and no matter what your tastes are it's hard not to be moved by Etienne's struggle to find his voice amid so much doubt and disillusion.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Eva (2018) An enticing premise that fails to catch fire.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Die Tomorrow (2017) For a movie about such a grim subject matter, the result can be surprisingly pleasant and even uplifting.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Return of the Hero (Le Retour du Héros) (2018) A comedy that offers one or two good jokes amid lots of shouting matches and easy bouts of slapstick.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet The Apparition (L'apparition) (2018) Overstays its welcome and fails to deliver in the final stretch.‐ Hollywood Reporter

11% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Seriously, is this the best we can offer adults who don't want to watch Marvel movies?‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
No Score Yet Taste of Cement (2017) An arresting mediation on construction and destruction.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2018
No Score Yet Les Tuche 3 (2018) Laughs are rather few and far between in this episode, which, at least, has the merit of clocking in at only 92 minutes and flies by quickly enough.‐ Hollywood Reporter

57% The Commuter (2018) Thoroughly enjoyable to watch if totally forgettable once you leave the theater, The Commuter feels like one of those films they simply don't make anymore, at least in Hollywood.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2017
No Score Yet The Lady in the Portrait (Le Portrait interdit) (2016) The film turns into a tedious affair that becomes increasingly benign despite all the heavy themes it tries to tackle.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2017
No Score Yet The Blessed (Les bienheureux) (2017) A haunting portrait of Algerians coping with the aftereffects of war.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2017
No Score Yet Christmas & Co (Santa & Cie) (2017) A clever holiday comedy that just about nails the right mixture of offbeat humor and Yuletide cheer.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
No Score Yet Vienne avant la nuit (2017) An intimately haunting mix of the personal and the historical.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2017
No Score Yet Diane Has the Right Shape (Diane a les épaules) (2017) A well-observed portrait of a woman embarking on a new romance while also having a baby - though one that isn't hers to keep.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2017
No Score Yet Maryline (2017) As a work entirely dedicated to revealing the artistry of its lead performer, Gallienne's sophomore effort ultimately does the trick, and by the time the curtain falls one longs to see what d'Hermy will do next.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2017
No Score Yet Le Brio (2017) The characters are compelling enough to avoid turning into major clichés, while stars Camelia Jordana and Daniel Auteuil prove to be a winning pair.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
No Score Yet Jealous (Jalouse) (2017) The directors get much mileage out of Nathalie's toxic behavior, with Viard drawing laughs from what's actually an extremely sad, borderline disturbing tale of one fiftysomething woman's downward spiral into alcoholism, resentment and general misery.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet All That Divides Us (Tout nous sépare) (2017) All That Divides Us is like one of those cartoons of a caveman beating a woman with a club and then dragging her off by her long mane. There's practically nothing in this movie that rings true ...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2017
No Score Yet Carbone (2017) The problem is that the more Marchal embellishes things, the less credible his film ultimately becomes, and by the time Antoine's story comes full circle Carbon is mostly running on fumes.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2017
No Score Yet See You Up There (Au revoir là-haut) (2017) Mixes high craft, surrealist humor and extremely dark themes - of trauma, death, corruption and manipulation - in ways that hold together rather well.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2017
No Score Yet Chemical Cut (2016) There's hardly anything that comes across as original in Conrad's story, although the nitty-gritty details on modeling offer up some peculiar examples of fashion's ugly underbelly.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2017
No Score Yet Coexister (2017) Worthy intentions aren't enough to overcome a half-baked scenario and a bunch of jokes that never seem to have been developed beyond the nesting stage.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
77% Realive (2017) ... an inventive if somewhat mawkish sci-fi melodrama in which a terminally ill hipster finds himself regenerated in the near-distant future, only to learn that he may have been better off dead.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2017
No Score Yet My Son (Mon Garçon) (2017) It's got a nervously eerie feel to it that's grounded in Canet's gripping turn as a daddy out to do good for his estranged family.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
100% The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales (Le grand méchant renard et autres contes) (2018) Renner and Imbert spend more time dishing out jokes than they do weaving the kind of meaningful narrative that made Ernest & Celestine so special, yet while Fox is more of a slaphappy romp than a morality play, there's still a method to the madness.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
No Score Yet Scaffolding (2017) A tough and moving educational drama.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
8% Euphoria (2017) Once the plot kicks in after the first reel, things head pretty much where you'd expect and all the sisterly bouts of love, hate and lamentation can grow rather tedious ...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
88% Ravenous (Les affamés) (2017) Sure, his script is yet another tale of several strangers teaming up to fight the flesh-eaters, but the director favors a more eclectic approach that's equal parts George Romero, Robert Bresson and Monty Python.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2017
20% If You Saw His Heart (Si tu voyais son coeur) (2017) There's not much to chew on beyond all the pretty pictures and the two attractive leads.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2017
60% The Cured (2018) It's a clever concept that's fairly well executed, if a tad contrived in spats, with tension that slowly boils to the surface as the zombies inevitably come back for a bite.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2017
40% Diving (Plonger) (2017) This moody, heavy-handed tale of mourning and loss never quite reaches its intended emotional catharsis, even if there's an impressive scope to what Laurent is trying to accomplish.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2017
50% Razzia (2017) A sprawling cri de coeur set in the heart of modern-day Casablanca, Nabil Ayouch's Razzia is an intense network narrative that nearly collapses under the weight of its own ambitions.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
No Score Yet Number One (Numéro une) (2017) If Number One doesn't always convince on a thematic or dramatic level, it's propped up by an excellent cast - beginning with Devos, who manages to appear both poised and completely flustered in the same shot ...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
41% The Mountain Between Us (2017) An easily digestible love story-cum-survival tale that tosses two excellent actors in the snow and lets them do their thing.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
No Score Yet Catch the Wind (Prendre le large) (2017) A tough and sentimental expat drama.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
100% The Guardians (Les Gardiennes) (2018) A sober, quietly affecting wartime drama.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
55% The Upside (2018) There's something so disarming about Phillip and Dell's relationship that you're gradually sucked into it without asking too many questions.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2017
95% Bodied (2017) If the movie runs long in places, the vibrant performances from Worthy and the rest of the cast help push things ahead, and there are enough dynamo battles from start to finish to keep hungry rap fans satisfied.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2017
67% Papillon (2017) There's no real voice in the storytelling, nothing distinctive about the imagery, if it's not a doubling up on the violence and gore, and the result doesn't remotely resonate in the same way.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
20% The Price of Success (Le Prix du succès) (2017) A compelling if somewhat cliched look at the downside of fame.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
No Score Yet Oblivion Verses (Los Versos del Olvido) (2017) Haunting and perplexing.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2017
60% Reinventing Marvin (Marvin) (2017) It's all a bit overlong and over-the-top, although the lead turn from rising star Finnegan Oldfield (Nocturama) is almost enough to make it work.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2017
No Score Yet Nobody's Perfect! (Bonne pomme) (2017) Deneuve. Depardieu. A picturesque French village. What could possibly go wrong? How about almost everything?‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2017
79% The Son of Bigfoot (2017) This mildly entertaining and very family friendly outing will play best with tykes who aren't quite ready for the more sophisticated meta-fictions of Pixar or DreamWorks.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
41% The Jungle Bunch (Les as de la jungle) (2017) The pacing is fast enough to gloss over the movie's rather limited imagination. And although it's not exactly on par with the major studios, the animation work is nonetheless impressive ...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
No Score Yet Lola Pater (2017) A thoughtful, albeit predictable, look at transgender issues ...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
No Score Yet Sales gosses (2017) An awful if affable mash-up of Dirty Grandpa and Meatballs that follows a bunch of senior citizens and their reluctant 20-something counselor over the course of one wet hot Gallic summer.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2017
100% The Girl Without Hands (La Jeune fille sans mains) (2017) A Brothers Grimm tale is given a rather grim if beautifully rendered makeover in The Girl Without Hands (La Jeune fille sans mains), which marks the feature debut of French animation director Sebastien Laudenbach.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2017
No Score Yet Wallay (2017) A documentary-style feature that uses its unique setting to drive an otherwise minimalist coming-of-age story.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2017
29% Radin! (2016) This one-trick pony gets in a few good gags during the opening reels before heading to the most predictable and clichéd places imaginable.‐ Hollywood Reporter
