74% The Mercy (2018) If you're tempted to see this well-acted but dour drama, you might best be advised to read up on Crowhurst first: you still may not like it, but at least you'll better be able to appreciate the kind of movie that director James Marsh has made.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

94% The Favourite (2018) The Favourite is a film that will be admired more than loved, but there's nothing at all wrong with that. ‐ The Public (Buffalo)

58% The Front Runner (2018) [Jackman] captures the self-confidence bordering on arrogance that blinded Hart to the precariousness of his position...‐ The Public (Buffalo)

88% What They Had (2018) It's heartfelt, and generally thoughtful, but nonetheless awfully familiar. But that hardly matters when you have a cast like this.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

98% Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) The moment that will be McCarthy's Oscar clip (there's no doubt she'll get a nomination) comes when she stands before a judge and manages to be both contrite and yet triumphant...‐ The Public (Buffalo)

90% RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World (2017) You're likely to be surprised at how much of a factor it has been in shaping our popular music, from blues and jazz through rock and roll and up to hip-hop.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

80% Chasing the Blues (2018) A moderately pleasant movie that you keep wishing had a bigger budget and one more script re-write to develop more of its potential.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

87% Colette (2018) The film is less about Colette in particular than it is about this unusual relationship of a dozen years, during which the traditional understandings of marriage were sundered on all sides.‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2018
66% Lizzie (2018) While [Sevigny's] performance is subtle, the story is anything but, hewing for the most part to known facts but filling them in with speculative details that make Lizzie a heroine for the modern era.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

84% The Wife (2018) What's left is an uninvolving movie about characters that, despite the considerable abilities of the two stars, I found it impossible to care about.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

93% Wanda (1971) It's not without it's rough edges, but it's well worth seeing, and wondering what might have been had Barbara Loden made more films.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

100% Pick of the Litter (2018) Aside from more music than is necessary, Pick of the Litter eschews the schmaltzy, trusting the material to speak for itself.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

57% Memoir of War (La douleur) (2018) Thierry's stoic performance and Finkiel's evocation of atmosphere envelop the viewer in a fever dream of dread. ‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
82% Juliet, Naked (2018) Juliet, Naked doesn't have much of value to say about contemporary relationships, at least nothing that Hornby hasn't already worked to death, but it's generally good-humored.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

55% The Bookshop (2018) No film that stars Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, and Patricia Clarkson could be counted as unwatchable, but this one has to go down as a dreary disappointment.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

65% The Little Stranger (2018) Part ghost story (or maybe not), part dissection of the British class system, The Little Stranger envelops you in gloom in the model of great Gothic tales‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
83% Puzzle (2018) That Puzzle comes across as sincere but overdetermined may be the fault of its director, Marc Turtletaub...Puzzle certainly isn't a bad movie. It's mostly disappointing because it seems that it should be better than it is.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman shows that entertainment and education do not have to part company in the hands of a skilled filmmaker.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) It's great that commercial films are being made to appeal directly to groups that have previously been relegated to Hollywood's sidelines, but I can't get excited that they're being marketed the same generic crap as the rest of us.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

99% McQueen (2018) The nexus between [McQueen's] work and the personal demons that led him to commit suicide at the age of 40 aren't always clear, but they make for consistently vivid cinema.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

98% The Cakemaker (2018) The Cakemaker is a movie of subtle, melancholy pleasures.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

76% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) This is clearly one of van Sant's mainstream projects, though not without a certain amount of directorial flair.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

96% Three Identical Strangers (2018) With an eye on what brings audiences in to see a documentary these days, director Tim Wardle has carefully fashioned his material with the structure of a thriller-at least, as best he could.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

100% Leave No Trace (2018) The movie's steady pacing and first-rate acting keep us interested through a running time of close to two hours...‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2018
97% Yellow Submarine (1968) It's hard not to overstate the role of Yellow Submarine in the growth of animated film, even if it took many of those whom it influenced a few decades to start producing their own work.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

91% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) Nick Offerman brings his bearish charm to a leading role...It's not a great film, but it's pretty irresistible.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

88% American Animals (2018) Most poignant for me was the fact that what troubles them the most is an incident of violence that would barely even be noticed in a fictional movie about such a "heist." ‐ The Public (Buffalo)

87% Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (2018) [It] includes both concert footage and an examination of the private woman behind the flamboyant stage performer.‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
70% Adrift (2018) The way the story plays out is not inaccurate, but it is misleading, and hampers the effect you would think a story like this would most want to provide.‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
68% On Chesil Beach (2018) That this likeable young couple won't be able to get past their problem will not come as a surprise to fans of McEwan, though the way that he and director Dominic Cooke present it evokes our empathy.‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
89% Hereditary (2018) Hereditary is undeniably scary and unusually well-crafted, but eventually less than the sum of its parts.‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
93% Beast (2018) [Jessie Buckley's] increasingly unhinged performance is reason enough to see the film, as is the assured direction of newcomer Michael Pearce, even if his skills as a writer are less obvious.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

97% The Rider (2018) It so often seems that filmmakers who were not born in this country have produced some of the most discerning portraits of that region. ‐ The Public (Buffalo)

86% Let the Sunshine In (Un beau soleil intérieur) (2018) Binoche gives the character her considerable all, and she's a delight to watch, but that doesn't stop us from growing frustrated with this woman.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

84% Pope Francis - A Man of His Word (2018) [Pope Francis: A Man of His Word] is genuinely inspirational, and these days that counts for something.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

No Score Yet Goodland (2018) If the Coen brothers classic of rural noir and jet black humor set a high bar for those who follow it, debuting writer-director Josh Doke acquits himself admirably.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

97% 1945 (2017) 1945 benefits from its leanness. [...] The film's 90 minutes are unhurried but inexorable.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

31% Super Troopers 2 (2018) It doesn't have too many big laughs, but I chuckled pretty consistently form beginning to end.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

34% I Feel Pretty (2018) I Feel Pretty is the apparent result of someone advising Amy Schumer to tone down her edginess in order to win a wider audience.‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2018
85% Love After Love (2018) Maybe the most damaging factor is that [director Russ] Harbaugh does nothing to establish that the paterfamilias, first seen in reasonably good health at a family gathering, is such an emotional touchstone to his wife and sons. ‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2018
89% You Were Never Really Here (2018) It seems to me that Ramsey's achievement here is to take an unpleasant genre exercise and make it into one that is merely frustrating.‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2018
74% Final Portrait (2018) It's a most unstodgy movie about that dullest of dramatic premises, the Artistic Process.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

88% The Road Movie (2018) If you only have time for one film this week, by all means get to the jaw-dropping The Road Movie.‐ The Public (Buffalo)

36% The Leisure Seeker (2018) It's a particular pleasure to see Sutherland in a leading role, as he's so seldom ever in his long career been given the opportunity to carry a film.‐ The Public (Buffalo)
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
78% The Last Suit (El último traje) (2018) [Pablo] Solarz may be able to claim that it is based on a true story, but drama requires more than that.‐ The Public (Buffalo)
