Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C 75% Ma' Rosa "Even Tangerine, the movie famously shot on an iPhone 5s, looks better. Not that a sharper image would much improve this chaotic portrait of police corruption. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 19, 2016
B+ 94% Aquarius "Sonia Braga gives the performance of her long, storied career in Aquarius. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 19, 2016
B- 58% The Unknown Girl (La fille inconnue) "An admirably humanistic outlook, to be sure, but the Dardennes usually demonstrate a lighter touch with their grace. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 19, 2016
C 39% It's Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde) "This is one of those dysfunctional-family angstfests that one finds either powerfully cathartic or nigh-well intolerable. I fall into the latter camp. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 19, 2016
B 100% Gimme Danger (2016) "Jarmusch clearly adores Iggy and wants to ensure that The Stooges receive their due as one of the most influential forces in music history. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 19, 2016
B 91% Graduation (Bacalaureat) "An expertly calibrated portrait of what happens when someone starts down a slippery slope of well-intentioned malfeasance. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 19, 2016
B 99% Love & Friendship (2016) "Beckinsale is the main attraction, delivering hilariously cutting lines with the casual cheeriness of someone who can't even conceive of caring what others might think of her. But she's ably supported by the entire ensemble ... " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 12, 2016
B+ 89% A Monster With A Thousand Heads (Un Monstruo de Mil Cabezas) (2016) "The movie's title is metaphorical, but its multiple viewpoints -- many of which represent one of those thousand heads, even if only for a minute or two -- ensure that it never feels like a bombastic lecture. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 11, 2016
B- 23% Being Charlie (2016) "The movie has a core of rueful sincerity that's frequently affecting, and a spiky sense of humor that's been missing from Reiner's movies for ages. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 5, 2016
B- 80% Viva (2016) "Perugorría is such a terrific, soulful actor that he makes Viva's predictable dramatic trajectory ... seem a bit less moldy. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 28, 2016
C+ 67% The Wait (L'attesa) (2016) "What should be the movie's emotional core gets frittered away in mind games. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 28, 2016
C 81% Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns) (2016) "The film is grotesque and bizarre without ever really being funny, and while the sight of Mikkelsen as a nebbishy loser is initially bracing, the novelty wears off fast, leaving little else. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 21, 2016
D+ 3% Nina (2016) "Nina has been so thoroughly misconceived, on virtually every level, that the only less interesting portrait imaginable would be one that takes place entirely when Nina Simone was in utero. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 21, 2016
B 92% The Measure of a Man (La loi du marché) (2016) "The Measure Of A Man's beating heart is Lindon's performance ... " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 14, 2016
C- 21% An Eye for Beauty (Le règne de la beauté) "Beautiful people living in beautiful houses surrounded by stunningly beautiful Canadian landscapes dominate the aptly titled An Eye For Beauty, which unfortunately also demands a stomach for tedium. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 14, 2016
B- 90% Neon Bull (Boi Neon) (2016) "There's considerable talent on view here, even if it's mostly expended on local color, incidental moments, and random weirdness. Maybe Mascaro should try grabbing the horns next time, rather than the tail. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 7, 2016
F 67% 11 Minutes (11 Minut) (2016) "An extravagantly pointless exercise in protracting the buildup to some meaningless carnage, garnished with metaphysical pretension so cutesy and vague that it feels actively insulting. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 7, 2016
B- 73% Miles Ahead (2016) "Cheadle demonstrates some talent behind the camera ... He's also predictably charismatic as Davis, capturing the man's raspy voice, hard stare, and infinite swagger. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
C+ 82% Standing Tall (La Tête Haute) (2016) "Everything feels realistic and acutely observed, but there's not a lot of variation involved. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
B- 72% Valley Of Love (2016) "It's such a pleasure to be in Huppert and Depardieu's joint company that the film's failure to coalesce is to some degree forgivable, or just ignorable. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 24, 2016
C 5% Get a Job (2016) "Not only is this ensemble unemployment comedy labored and witless, but it bears the unmistakable scars of a protracted and ultimately failed struggle in the editing room. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 22, 2016
C 88% Sweet Bean (An) (2016) "While this is Kawase's most straightforward, accessible movie, it's also perhaps her dullest, sustaining a single maudlin note for nearly two hours. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 17, 2016
C+ 58% The Program (2016) "There is nothing remotely likable, or even relatable, about Lance Armstrong in The Program. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 17, 2016
B 71% Remember (2016) "The trashier the movie gets-and each of Zev's encounters with a Rudy Kurlander is more lurid than the one before-the more its implausible, button-pushing premise works for it rather than against it. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 10, 2016
A- 92% River of Grass (1995) "Reichardt subverts expectations at every turn, while simultaneously painting a vivid portrait of southern Florida (the title refers to the Everglades, and the film goes back and forth between Broward and Dade County) in all its sun-drenched seediness. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 10, 2016
B+ 82% The Wave (Bolgen) (2016) "Familiarity can be fatal in art cinema, but in this context the stock situations and types function more like comfort food, with the absence of Americans providing a little welcome spice. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 3, 2016
B- 89% Songs My Brothers Taught Me (2016) "Viewers will be torn between admiring its laid-back naturalism and wishing it possessed just a little more oomph. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 2, 2016
C+ 57% Sundays and Cybele (Les Dimanches de Ville d'Avray) (1962) "Expect more resistance than usual to the implication that it's a classic ripe for the canon. Changing times do evolve past some things. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 28, 2016
A 96% Ran (1985) "This is one of the year's major cinematic events. It's well worth leaving the house for, should that opportunity arise. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 25, 2016
C 70% Snowtime! (2016) "Dialogue is witless (though at least there are no pop-culture references), and the kids are all generic types with pre-packaged personalities. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 18, 2016
C+ 43% Forsaken (2016) "Cassar, who's worked almost entirely in television (most notably on 24), lacks the formal brio to compensate for the script's mundane dialogue and lapses in logic, shooting mostly in undistinguished small-screen close-ups. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 18, 2016
C 81% Glassland (2016) "Jean is such a monster, and John such a put-upon sweetheart, that Glassland offers little more than undiluted bathos for over an hour. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 11, 2016
B 91% A War (Krigen) (2016) "The film is low-key and evenhanded to a fault, resisting opportunities for melodrama at every turn; it radiates intelligence and fairness, which, while admirable, don't exactly inspire a strong emotional response. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 11, 2016
B- 69% Tumbledown (2016) "That Tumbledown sort of works in spite of all its clichés is a testament to the gifts of its two lead actors. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 4, 2016
B+ 95% Rams (Hrútar) (2016) "Sigurjónsson and Júlíusson build on this in their distinct performances (one's angry, the other more sorrowful), silently conveying the weight of whatever long-ago betrayal led to their estrangement. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 4, 2016
C 65% Rabin, the Last Day (2016) "The movie is almost literally a trial to watch, demonstrating all the passion and excitement of an unedited C-SPAN broadcast. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 28, 2016
C+ 56% Lazer Team (2016) "Given the low budget, special effects-which range from serviceable to amateurish-aren't much of a draw here. Neither is the story, which leans heavily on cheesy formula ... " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 28, 2016
B- 98% Aferim! (2016) "Shot in widescreen black-and-white on 35mm, the film combines the structure of a classic Western with the look of Eastern European films from the 1960s, to reasonably absorbing effect. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 21, 2016
C+ 50% Bleak Street (La calle de la amargura) (2016) "The true story that inspired it raises eyebrows, but those raised eyebrows are all the film provokes, as well. That just isn't enough. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 21, 2016
C 50% Intruders (2016) "Intruders ultimately comes across like basic-cable schlock (or is it Netflix schlock now?), slightly redeemed by the germ of a great idea, even if said idea never truly germinates. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 14, 2016
B- 71% A Perfect Day (2016) "On a moment-to-moment basis, A Perfect Day is reasonably engaging, mostly because of its novel milieu ... " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 14, 2016
D+ 31% Anesthesia (2016) "Employs a dozen or so cardboard characters as mouthpieces for singularly unilluminating thoughts about the ways in which people struggle to bury their unhappiness. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 7, 2016
A- 92% Anomalisa (2015) "Anomalisa, in common with virtually every film Kaufman has written, struggles to make peace with the knowledge that we are all fundamentally alone. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 31, 2015
B 78% Where to Invade Next (2016) "Moore here makes his strongest bona fide argument in ages, albeit one that still gleefully stacks the deck and avoids examining possible downsides too carefully. He even comes across as genuinely patriotic, in his own way. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 23, 2015
C- 30% Don Verdean (2015) "This may well be the year's most tepid movie, in any genre-the cinematic equivalent of flat, warm soda pop. It's not that the jokes don't land, so much as that they're often too drab and listless to even be clearly identifiable as attempts at humor. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 10, 2015
C+ 83% Stinking Heaven "Unfortunately, more thought appears to have been expended on these aesthetic decisions than on the largely improvised drama they capture. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 8, 2015
B 73% Youth (2015) "It's music for the eyes. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 3, 2015
C+ 80% Macbeth (2015) "While no movie that stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard could signify nothing, this one doesn't signify a whole lot. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 3, 2015
B+ 100% Christmas, Again (2015) "The film amounts to a collection of indelible moments, many of them piercingly lovely and delicate. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 3, 2015
C 24% Victor Frankenstein (2015) "The first words spoken in Victor Frankenstein are "You know the story," and anyone who simply mutters "Yep," gets up, and heads back to the box office for a refund will be well ahead of the game. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 25, 2015
A- 94% Carol (2015) "It's been a long time since the movies have seen a fuse of pure ardor burn this slowly and steadily, leading to such an unexpectedly moving explosion of resolve. " ‐ AV Club
