91% Gloria Bell (2019) There is a kind of daring in the film's very modesty, in Lelio's decision to forego the thrills of melodrama and the lure of glamour to follow an unexceptional woman through the peaks and valleys of her days. - Film Comment Magazine EDIT

No Score Yet Gator (1976) Structurally, Gator is a bit of a mess, largely because of the civilizing and romantic influence Reynolds has brought to the randy domain of the redneck action film. - Village Voice EDIT

95% Call Me by Your Name (2018) Call Me by Your Name is more invitingly heartfelt and less baroque than the director's previous films, and skillfully captures ... the languor of the summer mood. - Film Comment Magazine EDIT

48% Cake (2015) It will be a pity if viewers are too put off by the subject to see Aniston's bravura turn, a tour de force that also tells us something about what we can and can't accept in women's performances, our threshold for unlikability and unprettiness. - Film Comment Magazine EDIT

85% Still Alice (2015) It's the intent of this moving film to capture something that for obvious reasons is rarely attempted in memoir or movie, i.e., the experience of the deadly disease from the perspective of the sufferer rather than the caregivers. - Film Comment Magazine EDIT

33% Little Fauss and Big Halsy (1970) Rotten to the core without a surface ripple in its moral superiority. - Village Voice EDIT

93% Nashville (1975) I think that the power and the theme of the film lie in the fact that while some characters are more "major" than others, they are all subordinated to the music itself. It's like a river, running through the film, running through their life. - Village Voice EDIT

60% The Out-of-Towners (1970) Because Simon is dealing with a place -- and a commonplace -- rather than people, it is only too easy to see the jokes coming long before they arrive. - Village Voice EDIT
