T-Meter Title | Year
7/10 97% Your Name. (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2017) Your Name. is an engaging if saccharine universal tale of self-discovery. It's also a visual masterwork. - PopMatters EDIT

8/10 87% Donnie Darko (2001) It remains an aesthetically filmed blend of off-beat comedy, mind-boggling sci-fi, and subjective storytelling that serves as a singular and timeless piece of cinema. - PopMatters EDIT

7/10 80% Personal Shopper (2017) Personal Shopper can be categorized as a character study within the frame of an anti-horror flick, and character studies always demand patience. Those who are willing to meet Assayas halfway will find the film rewarding. - PopMatters EDIT

7/10 73% Nocturnal Animals (2016) By the end credits, Nocturnal Animals feels well worth the ride, even if it runs out of track in its final few minutes. It's far from perfect, but also hardly needs to be in order to provide an intoxicating cinematic experience. - PopMatters EDIT

10/10 98% Moonlight (2016) Despite its melancholy, and at times upsetting subject matter, Moonlight is a film with a genuine, openhearted message: love survives. Surely the hardest of hearts would be moved by this beautiful film. - PopMatters EDIT

4/10 77% My Love, Don't Cross That River (2016) It's hard not to feel a twinge of frustration. - PopMatters EDIT

4/10 14% Autumn Lights (2016) What remains are the bones of a decent genre flick, with the aspirations of a Nicolas Winding Refn film. Perhaps Aulakh will get there one day, but there are several kinks to smooth first. - PopMatters EDIT

6/10 98% Don't Think Twice (2016) Its greatest achievement, though, is its refusal to let the viewer abide by the third rule of improv: don't think. - PopMatters EDIT
