Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
90% I, Tonya (2018) ... I, Tonya is a shockingly stark portrait of what chronic, escalating domestic violence might actually look like.‐ Vogue

95% The Florida Project (2017) The pleasure of The Florida Project is that we lose ourselves in Moonee's Eden: its aesthetics; its logic.‐ Vogue

92% Good Time (2017) It's a testament to the Safdies' incredible control as storytellers that neither the genre exercise nor the social commentary detracts from the emotional heft of this film.‐ Vogue

74% Landline (2017) If Obvious Child offered a quick sketch of its broader universe, Landline, Robespierre, Holm, and Slate's latest collaboration, is a carefully rendered study.‐ Vogue

86% Trainwreck (2015) On the one hand there's banter; on the other, there's knowing what you want and bluntly requesting (or demanding) it. Schumer's movie is a study in the difference.‐ Vogue

73% A Very Murray Christmas (2015) And it's true: The production values are not high. The transitions are awkward. The scripted jokes do not land. The actors seem unrehearsed. Many of the songs do not work. But, somehow, Bill Murray still charms.‐ Vogue

89% Fresh Dressed (2015) If you want a graduate degree in the history of hip-hop fashion, look elsewhere; if you're looking for an entry level course, Fresh Dressed is a great primer.‐ Vogue

88% Dope (2015) There are plenty of reasons to love Dope: breakout performances... an irresistible, caper-filled plot that's perfect for carefree early summer. But the film's spot-on reinterpretation of late eighties and nineties fashion is also a major draw.‐ Vogue

80% Colossal (2017) Vigalondo's thought-provoking monster mash is a fantastically weird and wild ride that's not for everyone. But when real life gets as surreal as it has in 2017 America, why wouldn't fiction follow suit?‐ Vogue

No Score Yet Gaza Surf Club (2016) Politics is not the point of Gaza Surf Club -- it is, in fact, barely mentioned -- but the political situation there informs every part of this project.‐ Vogue

43% Song to Song (2017) A long, strange, unexpected trip that's visually beautiful and unsettling in a way that lingers.‐ Vogue

100% The Dresser (2015) The best part of The Dresser is watching Hopkins and McKellen, two actors at the peak of their considerable powers, playing off each other.‐ Vogue

30% Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time (2017) Trumped is among the first filmic takes on the election, but it surely won't be the last. And being so quick off the starting block may actually be a liability.‐ Vogue

81% Barry (2016) Barry is sensitive, charming, and measured -- a lot like the man its main character will go on to become.‐ Vogue

74% Miles Ahead (2016) Cheadle makes good use of Davis's penchant for sly one-liners, adapting his aphorisms into dialogue.‐ Vogue

No Score Yet Spring Broke (2016) Ellwood uses archival TV interviews to give some context for why college kids were suddenly magnetically drawn to party on the beach.‐ Vogue

88% Harry Benson: Shoot First (2016) It's a breezy, enjoyable portrait of a man for all seasons, a likeable, charismatic, visual raconteur who would do anything -- who has done almost everything -- to get his shot.‐ Vogue

90% Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing (2016) It's [Patrick Downes' and Jessica Kensky's] story, still so unresolved, that hits home the hardest.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2016
91% Elle (2016) No matter how you cut it, serious or satire, thriller or comedy, Elle is a film for these times.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
98% Moonlight (2016) Moonlight, then, is subtle and evocative, as much a sensory experience as a linear journey.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2016
100% Tower (2016) Those animations swirl in and out, replaced occasionally by archival footage and photographs. The result is immediate, gripping, suspenseful, and at times, a little bit trippy.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2016
96% 13th (2016) The film also recasts the conversation about race in this country in terms that are appropriately shocking.‐ Vogue

84% Hockney (2016) A picture is worth a thousand words, but Wright's film, if only for a few seconds at a time, takes us inside the head of one of our greatest living artists.‐ Vogue

91% The Measure of a Man (La loi du marché) (2016) Brizé's film offers a compelling case study in how a good man with tragically bearish fortunes might find himself in bed with the most bullish of capitalists.‐ Vogue

67% A Tale of Love and Darkness (2016) A Tale of Love and Darkness maps the chaos of the founding of the modern Jewish state onto the dissolution of this family.‐ Vogue

93% Tickled (2016) There's stranger than fiction, and then there's stranger than stranger than fiction. Tickled, the new documentary from New Zealand filmmakers David Farrier and Dylan Reeve, falls into the latter category.‐ Vogue

77% Tig (2015) It's an emotional and moving portrait of life after cancer, and of the sort of equanimity that can come out of tragedy. ‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2016
60% Concussion (2015) Much like the character he plays, Will Smith is a force to be reckoned with. And watching him science the NFL into a corner? Not a bad way, it turns out, to spend a couple hours.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2016
81% Sunset Song (2016) So lovingly does cinematographer Michael McDonough's camera track the rural landscape that it's just as true to say that Davies's film is about Scotland itself, and about the intrinsic link between the land and the people born to it.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2016
94% Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) Ultimately, Lo and Behold is less a documentary about technology, and more one about people. Herzog is a character who adores characters. In his hands, the Internet, vast, scary, unknowable, alien, mystifying, suddenly seems all too human.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2016
78% Viktoria (2016) Viktoria is absurd, often funny, surreal, and beautifully shot.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2016
72% Youth (2015) The world of Youth, confined for the most part to the sanatorium and the mountains that surround it, can feel hermetically sealed.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2016
89% The Lady In The Van (2015) Miss Shepherd may have almost nothing to her name, but Smith plays her as imperiously as she does the Dowager Countess of Grantham on Downton Abbey.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2016
90% Mediterranea (2015) Mediterranean [is] a beautiful, tough-to-take look at the plight of migrants. It's also a bit of a wrist slap, and a necessary one.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2016
83% Equal Means Equal (2016) Equal Means Equal can be a slog; then again, so is life as a woman in America.‐ Vogue
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2016
83% Captain Fantastic (2016) Captain Fantastic ties its many loose ends into charming little bows, pats itself on the back for its own ingenuity, and skips along on its merry way.‐ Vogue
