30% Rebel in the Rye (2017) It's not that Rebel in the Rye is an unusually phony Hollywood biopic -- it is familiarly phony.‐ Esquire Magazine

83% 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

71% 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

75% Damsels in Distress (2012) Stillman is in fine form, depicting this campus as a kind of Ivy League Idiocracy.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

51% 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

85% 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

69% 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

90% Winnie the Pooh (2011) After a summerlong rampage of Hollywood's obnoxious misbehavior, Pooh is mercifully without sting.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2011
69% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2011
90% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2011
38% 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

39% Cars 2 (2011) ...by Pixar's outrageous standards of Oscar shoo-in virtuosity, this sequel is a disappointment at best.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2011
48% 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

15% 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
Read More | Posted May 13, 2011
56% 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
Read More | Posted May 6, 2011
15% 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
Read More | Posted May 6, 2011
60% Water for Elephants (2011) "Pattinson's beauty crowds out just about everything else."‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2011
49% 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

46% Drive Angry (2011) It's the worst kind of bad: Boring bad.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2011
100% 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
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2008
93% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2008
91% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2008
98% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2008
89% Nights and Weekends (2008) Joe Swanberg and Greta Gerwig nail the everyday rhythms of stuttering indecision.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2008
88% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2008
52% Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008) Penn and Cho's stoner slapstick will doubtless please their obsessive fans.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2008
40% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2008
77% Water Lilies (2008) The drama never merely titillates, instead developing a convincing dynamic among the three.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2008
88% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2008
64% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2008
70% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2008
50% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2008
92% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2008
56% Civic Duty (2006) Jeff Renfroe's film stirs up some timely anxieties, including the War on Terror, racial profiling.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2007
64% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2007
69% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2006
76% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2006
84% Saint of 9/11 (2006) Certainly, this documentary honors Judge's memory, but one wishes for something greater.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2006
59% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2006
88% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2006
75% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2006
88% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2005
56% 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
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2005
78% 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

16% Alexander (2004) Stone rises to his own challenge.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
