Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A- 100% Jane (2017) More than being a standard biographical doc, the film serves as a cautionary tale against the perils of male chauvinism.‐ The Film Stage

B- 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Rather than going for a greatest hits approach with Tigger's attention span, the film would've been quite magical if it had used Eeyore's wistfulness as inspiration.‐ The Film Stage

C+ 66% Breathe (2017) Turn after turn the film is unabashedly old school, with gold hue flashbacks and vignettes that lionize Robin more than they advance the plot.‐ The Film Stage

A- 96% Ex Libris: New York Public Library (2017) Who knew a documentary about the library could turn out to be the most thrilling political film of the year?‐ The Film Stage

B- 48% Year by the Sea (2017) [Year by the Sea] is not a film trying to show the extraordinary in the mundane, but rather create a space for characters like Joan to figure out what they can become. ‐ The Film Stage

C 50% England Is Mine (2017) A muddled portrait of a young man unaware of the creativity within him.‐ The Film Stage

C 50% The Glass Castle (2017) When you're lacking a magnetic star in the lead, and the screenplay is trying to decide whether it wants to be Dardenne or Disney, it's nothing but a structure meant to shatter.‐ The Film Stage

B 93% Escapes (2017) Almereyda makes the most of this Dickensian hero's qualities by having him share some of his most unique anecdotes.‐ The Film Stage

B+ 89% Girls Trip (2017) An important reminder of how the rest of American culture needs to catch up when it comes to cultural appropriation and the way black women are talked about and portrayed.‐ The Film Stage

B 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets doesn't always work because Besson tries to imbue it with too much and all at once, but when it does, it's unlike anything you've seen.‐ The Film Stage

B- 87% The Midwife (Sage femme) (2017) Béatrice is perhaps the polar opposite of what we think about when we think Deneuve, and yet, as with all the other eccentrics she's played, the actress grounds her through an otherworldly grace and humanity. ‐ The Film Stage

B 86% bwoy (2017) John G. Young might have very well made the film that best encompasses what online dating feels like.‐ The Film Stage

B 72% Sleight (2017) If Sleight wasn't so entertaining, one might be tempted to define it as a social drama in which we are witnesses to the lack of opportunities young black men are provided.‐ The Film Stage

B 92% Obit (2017) Rarely does the idea of death elicit the warmth and utter charm as it does in this documentary.‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2017
C- 64% The Finest Hours (2016) A lush disaster film that assumes audiences will undoubtedly root for love at all costs, even if it's just a device used to avoid constructing a solid dramatic structure.‐ The Film Stage
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2016
C+ 56% Lazer Team (2016) Effective, low-budget visual effects, bro-ish jokes, and a self-aware love of geekdom that's completely free of cynicism.‐ The Film Stage

5/10 No Score Yet The Trip to Bountiful (2014) This Lifetime version of The Trip to Bountiful feels appropriate to remind people to go to the theater, to go seek why shows keep being turned into films and TV miniseries. The Trip to Bountiful, as it is here, isn't always worth the ride.‐ PopMatters

8/10 98% Call Me Kuchu (2013) With this heartbreaking premise, directors Malika Zouhali-Worrall and Katherine Fairfax Wright directed Call Me Kuchu, a revealing documentary that takes a look at how a small group of people are working hard to take Uganda out of this dark ages.‐ PopMatters

9/10 96% My Fair Lady (1964) Even if the story is quite simple, the film, as directed by the legendary George Cukor, achieves various levels of depth, particularly because of the way in which he turns it into a keen gender study.‐ PopMatters
