3/4 93% Obit (2017) [T]he film is, despite the protests of its subjects, about death. It's just not about death in a way that the people within the film have accepted yet.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) Alien: Covenant may follow what seems like a blueprint at this point ... but the film provides a tantalizing combination of effective horror and troubling ideas.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 87% One Week and a Day (Shavua ve Yom) (2017) Polonsky's debut feature is a strong one -- a comfortable comedy mixed with unavoidable truths about grief.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3.5/4 84% Risk (2017) Risk doesn't want to put a label on [Assange], but it gives us as good a picture of him as we're likely to get.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 86% My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea (2017) It exists as some kind of fantastical wish-fulfillment, in which the guy whom nobody likes ... gets to have all of his assumptions confirmed and his opinions justified.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
3/4 100% The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki (Hymyilevä mies) (2017) The major reason the film works is because [screenwriters Mikko] Myllylahti and [director Juho] Kuosmanen don't see this as a love story or even a story about boxing...‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 81% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) [A]n entertaining space adventure that cares more about jokes than action sequences and that, ultimately, cares more about its characters than the jokes.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

1.5/4 15% The Circle (2017) It's a modern-day fable with a moral that's arrived at by way of a monologue and a smile.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2017
2/4 27% Unforgettable (2017) Screenwriter Christina Hodson and first-time director Denise Di Novi are clearly trying to go against the grain here. It's just a shame that it still feels so routine.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

1.5/4 16% Queen of the Desert (2017) The story is mostly formless and, as a result, rather disorienting.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
3/4 89% Frantz (2017) Ozon frames this story as a romance, but that is the filmmaker doing his own act of deception.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
2/4 58% Cezanne and I (Cézanne et Moi) (2017) This story of the turbulent bond between two geniuses ... cares far too much about the turbulence and not nearly enough about the genius.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
3/4 95% After the Storm (Umi yori mo mada fukaku) (2017) [W]riter/director Hirokazu Koreeda's deliberate, observant film [is] about a man who will not let go of the past, because he cannot see a future for himself or his life.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
3/4 79% Colossal (2017) It's a smart and funny film, but it's also an unexpectedly perceptive one.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
2.5/4 73% The Void (2017) It's tempting to grade The Void on a bit of a curve, if only because [directors] Gillespie and Kostanski do more than a competent job with the material's inherent obstacles. ‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
1/4 30% Salt and Fire (2017) Salt and Fire is a hodgepodge of inexplicable characters, half-considered ideas, and a rambling plot.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
2/4 16% Mine (2017) The second half sees survival, oddly, as a form of therapy.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
1.5/4 46% Going in Style (2017) Going in Style [is] a particularly inferior remake and pretty bad on its own.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
1/4 31% The Assignment (2017) [I]ts biggest sin isn't cultural, political, or anything of that nature. No, the biggest problem is that it's dull.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
2.5/4 38% Aftermath (2017) Strangely, reality gets in the way of a hardened, difficult story about loss and guilt in Aftermath.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
3/4 98% Your Name. (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2017) A gorgeous animated film from director Makoto Shinkai, Your Name is a sweet combination of naïve romantic sentimentality and thought-provoking science-fiction.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
