Your Sister's Sister (2012)

"With this convoluted set-up in place, three actors with extraordinary chemistry play it all out to the end, and somehow the feeling deepens, even as the jokes spiral out of control." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 22, 2012

Natural Selection (2012)

"I'm still reeling at how high a level of difficulty this film worked at, with its bold tonal shifts, meshing of truly dark material and spastic physical comedy." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 14, 2012

Damsels in Distress (2012)

"Stillman is in fine form, depicting this campus as a kind of Ivy League Idiocracy." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Oct 18, 2011

Brighton Rock (2011)

"Brighton's "not what she used to be," says one gangster, and that sure is a shame: The 1947 adaptation was so much more, and so much more strange." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Aug 29, 2011

Circumstance (2011)

"The film doesn't feel weighed down with the burden of representation: It's too free-flowing for that, too plot-heavy, too stylish, too romantic, too hot." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Aug 29, 2011

Friends With Benefits (2011)

"Fast-paced and fabulously fake, Friends With Benefits is the Red Bull of romantic comedies, unapologetically delivering a hyperactive, synthetic buzz." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Aug 2, 2011

Winnie the Pooh (2011)

"After a summerlong rampage of Hollywood's obnoxious misbehavior, Pooh is mercifully without sting." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jul 14, 2011

Horrible Bosses (2011)

"Still, Day's scene involving a mountain of cocaine is hyperspeed-hilarious, Farrell's unhinged, irrational fuming is marvelously cretinous, and Aniston's fully committed sex-addict sexpot act is wickedly absurd." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jul 8, 2011

Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest (2011)

"it's Rapaport's mistake to spend so much time and energy unpacking something so much more obvious, and so much less interesting, than Tribe's music. " ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jul 7, 2011

Monte Carlo (2011)

"Even within the manipulative Princess-for-a-Day genre, Disney Channel product Selena Gomez's Monte Carlo is a chintzy knockoff. " ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jul 1, 2011

Cars 2 (2011)

"...by Pixar's outrageous standards of Oscar shoo-in virtuosity, this sequel is a disappointment at best." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jun 24, 2011

Mr. Popper's Penguins (2011)

"Jim Carrey's farts-and-flippers comedy, which, though exceedingly dumb, is at least very smart about what appeals to 4- to 10-year-old kids, fans of Happy Feet, March of the Penguins, and YouTube animal videos." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jun 17, 2011

Priest (2011)

"When you watch Bettany, you can't help wondering why the hell a talented actor is stuck in such an ungodly mess." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 13, 2011

Jumping the Broom (2011)

""The comedy is as familiar as the ceremony at a cookie-cutter wedding factory: Much feels old or borrowed; nothing feels new."" ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 6, 2011

Something Borrowed (2011)

""Inept and implausible in almost every way, Something Borrowed is the smug rom-com answer to the Apatowian man-child comedy."" ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 6, 2011

Water for Elephants (2011)

""Pattinson's beauty crowds out just about everything else."" ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 22, 2011

Super (2011)

"For all its indie posturing, Super feels as callow as any other big studio flick to court Comic Con: A B-movie splatter flick dressed up as a critique, dressed up as a black comedy, dressed up as a spoof, and capped with an ironic epilogue." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 4, 2011

Drive Angry (2011)

"It's the worst kind of bad: Boring bad." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 25, 2011

Fanny & Alexander (1982)

"This premiere of the original cut, running at 312 minutes, leaves room for more than a story of one life." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Dec 1, 2008

The Betrayal - Nerakhoon (2008)

"Even in a city bursting with extraordinary immigrant stories, this film about a Laotian-American family's journey to Brooklyn is unusually moving." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 17, 2008

Stranded: I Have Come from a Plane That Crashed on the Mountains (2008)

"Somber and exhaustive, the film manages to avoid exploitation while still conveying the harrowing ordeal of its subjects." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Oct 20, 2008

Let the Right One In (2008)

"Tomas Alfredson somehow takes a wild premise -- a ravenous 12-year-old bloodsucker who strikes up a romance with a bullied young boy in small-town Sweden -- and executes it with restraint and style." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Oct 20, 2008

Nights and Weekends (2008)

"Joe Swanberg and Greta Gerwig nail the everyday rhythms of stuttering indecision." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Oct 6, 2008

Louise Bourgeois: The Spider, the Mistress and the Tangerine (2008)

"Remarkably and unsentimentally self-reflective, the artist talks to filmmakers Marion Cajori and Amei Wallach about a lifetime of tough work and tougher questions. Fascinating stuff." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jun 23, 2008

Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008)

"Penn and Cho's stoner slapstick will doubtless please their obsessive fans." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 25, 2008

Dark Matter (2008)

"Director Chen Shi-Zheng is inconsistent from one scene to the next, alternating clichés with convincing, specific details. The film never quite earns its whopper of a finale." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 7, 2008

Water Lilies (2008)

"The drama never merely titillates, instead developing a convincing dynamic among the three." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 31, 2008

Meduzot (Jellyfish) (2008)

"The film is shot through with keen observations and dry wit, and has a refreshing, easygoing sense of flow." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 31, 2008

Stop-Loss (2008)

"Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Pearce attempts to anchor the Iraq War debate in the lives of a specific subset of soldiers and nearly pulls it off. But her promising premise runs into a rut of incompatible accents and melodramatic excess." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 24, 2008

Sleep Dealer (2009)

"[This] lo-fi sci-fi debut is jam-packed with sly satirical gestures that more than compensate for its more-traditional shortcomings." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 24, 2008

CJ7 (2008)

"Even fans of Stephen Chow should probably skip his latest, kid-friendly flick. It's only sporadically funny, and often grating, and at some point you realize that you've been suckered into watching an extended advertisement for a toy." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 3, 2008

Still Life (Sanxia Haoren) (2006)

"More than any other director, the extraordinarily gifted Chinese filmmaker Jia Zhang-ke has a talent for locating the future in the present day." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 11, 2008

Civic Duty (2006)

"Jeff Renfroe's film stirs up some timely anxieties, including the War on Terror, racial profiling." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 30, 2007

American Cannibal: The Road to Reality (2006)

"Reality TV has rarely cared much about truth -- and maybe this is the doc it deserves. The crass truthiness here is far more apt than any of the glossy satire in American Dreamz." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 16, 2007

Cocaine Cowboys (2006)

"Sure, the bombast is extreme, and, yes, it spends more time on tall tales than impact reports, but this vigorous, energetic doc captures the allure of a business that has never thrived on subtlety." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Oct 23, 2006

A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints (2006)

"Montiel's debut packs a visceral punch that most coming-of-age tales do not." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Sep 25, 2006

Saint of 9/11 (2006)

"Certainly, this documentary honors Judge's memory, but one wishes for something greater." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Sep 7, 2006

Red Doors (2005)

"A few of the plot threads are woven more neatly than others, but the film makes for a promising debut." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Sep 7, 2006

Man Push Cart (2006)

"Ramin Bahrani's striking debut tracks a Pakistani street-cart vendor with a mysterious past as he pushes his steel box through Manhattan." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Sep 7, 2006

Sherrybaby (2006)

"Cranky and desperate, Gyllenhaal is impeccable, but this is such a familiar tale that the resolution cannot help but feel predetermined." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Sep 7, 2006

Bad Education (2004)

"It still exerts an uncanny power: Like the best of Almodóvar's work, it throws you a first-love sucker punch that will stagger your heart, mind, and soul." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 27, 2005

The Polar Express (2004)

"Strap yourself in and try not to vomit, because this is more of a theme-park event than a movie -- Pirates of the Caribbean in reverse, a wild ride stripped of its story, down to a rattling series of obvious, underwhelming effects." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jan 16, 2005

Overnight (2004)

"The latest entry in the ever-expanding Harvey Weinstein demonology, this jittery documentary is as raw as the filmmakers' rattled nerves." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 23, 2004

Alexander (2004)

"Stone rises to his own challenge." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
