30% The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again (2016) Ortega's production is full of curious directorial choices like this. A few hit. Many miss.‐ Elle

100% Nico, 1988 (2018) Because [Susanna] Nicchiarelli gets all of that, Nico, 1988 never devolves into a sob story.‐ Pitchfork

92% David Bowie: The Last Five Years (2017) Bowie's untimely death was a tragedy, but at the very least, it finally got us really discussing his body of work. The Last Five Years continues that necessary conversation.‐ Pitchfork

83% Detroit (2017) Detroit, however, suggests [director Kathryn Bigelow] - and her current screenwriter - still can't quite tell the difference between an impactful film and an important one.‐ Mic.com

69% mother! (2017) Mother!... is just as gorgeous, bombastic and uninterested in presenting fully formed characters as those movies, but it's also pretty spectacular.‐ Mic.com

8% CBGB (2013) Unless you're morbidly curious about how one of the loudest, strangest, and most irreverent and original moments in rock history can be transformed into a jukebox musical for the entertainment of precisely no one, there's no need to see CBGB.‐ Flavorwire

89% Venus in Fur (2014) Lighthearted as it is, Venus in Fur has the rare effect of filtering the viewer's life through its own extreme lens.‐ Flavorwire

84% Pulp: a Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets (2014) Whatever the reason, this truly is a film about life, death, and supermarkets, which means it's a far better film about Pulp than any mere record of their final concert would have been.‐ Flavorwire

90% Wetlands (2014) ... The film is packed with subtle, feminist riffs on romantic movie clichés... ‐ Flavorwire

72% Pasolini (2014) Pasolini may not be the film we were promised, but it turns out to be something better: a thought-provoking - if not quite masterful - cinematic portrait of an artist whose visionary oeuvre remains poorly understood.‐ Flavorwire

91% Dear White People (2014) ... an incisive look at not only how smart, ambitious people of all different skin tones and experiences talk about race in America, but also what's behind those words.‐ Flavorwire

85% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) ... the novel Thomas Hardy actually wrote would have made for a much more thrilling film.‐ Flavorwire

98% Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015) Of the many films that have been made about Kurt Cobain, documentary and fiction, [director Brett] Morgen's is the best because what it leaves us with is the one thing that most defined his life: empathy.‐ Flavorwire

39% Love (2015) That philosophical freedom is what gives his earlier films value, and the lack of it is what makes Love, with its adherence to worn-out binaries, a disappointment.‐ Flavorwire

80% The Revenant (2015) Ultimately, The Revenant suggests no deeper or more nuanced truths than a medieval morality play.‐ Flavorwire
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
96% Heart of a Dog (2015) ... it restores a sense of calm to its subject without evading the most haunting questions.‐ Flavorwire

74% Gaga: Five Foot Two (2017) ... Five Foot Two feels intriguingly raw.‐ Pitchfork
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
78% We Are X (2016) What drives [director Stephen] Kijak's film, and adds a universal dimension to a singular band's narrative, is the drama inherent in a group of strong personalities who live for music attempting to create and perform it together.‐ Pitchfork
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
43% Song to Song (2017) ... just another minor variation on Malick's favorite theme-the power of love and spirituality to transcend the life-poisoning curses of ambition and greed-and not a very effective one, at that.‐ Pitchfork
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
95% Gimme Danger (2016) ... by getting Iggy to talk about his art rather than his antics, Jarmusch performs the delicate feat of elucidating a beloved rock'n'roll persona without exploding it.‐ Pitchfork

5/5 100% Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (1970) Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders enjoys a richly deserved place in the international canon of timeless coming-of-age stories.‐ The Dissolve
