87% Whitney: Can I Be Me (2017) It's not as good as Amy, the 2015 knock out documentary about singer Amy Winehouse's life, but there are some potent moments in this film about the supremely talented and complicated Whitney Houston. ‐ Urban Cinefile

89% 20th Century Women (2017) Although there are some great insights into the era (late 70s) and the struggle to counter the generation gap is effective, the film feels like a contrivance, despite Bening's superb and refreshingly 'real' portrayal‐ Urban Cinefile

52% The Boss Baby (2017) It may lack the finesse of Pixar, but the film has some inspired & imaginative touches as the exposition takes us on a journey that is a mix of conspiracy theory, sibling rivalry and importance of family. As for Alec Baldwin, he steals the film..‐ Urban Cinefile

75% Miss Sloane (2016) Dialogue heavy but astute in its observations of the world of political lobbying, Miss Sloane is a formidable platform for the talents of Jessica Chastain, whose Elizabeth Sloane pops pills, pays for sex and does whatever it takes to win.‐ Urban Cinefile

96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) There are no contrivances, no manipulations, no false notes.
