42% Sand Castle (2017) Sand Castle isn't exactly a modern classic in the tradition of Platoon, but it feels authentic in a way that I suspect those touched by war will find cathartic and comforting. ‐ Missoula Independent

66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) No one thinks these are good movies. The question becomes, "Did this film numb your senses enough to forget the troubles of your life for 2 hours and 19 minutes?" Sort of!‐ doghatesfilm.com

66% Before I Fall (2017) I can't quite recommend Before I Fall to grownups, but for teenage girls still battling social hierarchies [...] this might be just the ticket.‐ Missoula Independent

94% Moneyball (2011) There is Rookie of the Year, Angels in the Outfield and Major League levels of feel-good inspiration at play, with an added layer of realism and intelligence.‐ Missoula Independent

33% Cut Bank (2015) Cut Bank is a pretty terrible film that I've developed a misplaced affection for anyway. ‐ Missoula Independent

49% The D Train (2015) Black and Marsden are truly great in these roles. The script is dumb and has them doing idiotic, inexplicable things, but the characters they embody have serious depth and range. ‐ Missoula Independent

89% White God (2015) An astounding, crushing film. ‐ Missoula Independent

49% Tomorrowland (2015) For those who prefer character development and cohesive storytelling, you may do better to watch some old episodes of "Stargate" or "Sliders."‐ Missoula Independent

80% Personal Shopper (2017) If you're anything like me, you'll leave the theater feeling sad, invigorated, and, if the film's really working on you, just a little bit ashamed of yourself.‐ Missoula Independent

40% Wilson (2017) Should you see Wilson? I don't know. How bored are you?‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
90% I don't feel at home in this world anymore. (2017) The movie works primarily because of the warmth and humanity that Lynskey and Wood bring to their characters.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
81% God Knows Where I Am (2017) One of those rare, beautiful films that has the courage to dwell in its own sadness.‐ Missoula Independent

99% Get Out (2017) This is Guess Who's Coming to Dinner meets Six Flags' Kingda Ka roller coaster after surviving a car wreck while winning the lottery.‐ Missoula Independent

99% I Am Not Your Negro (2017) I Am Not Your Negro is a rare and special film that evokes Baldwin's work at a pivotal time, for a generation that may have otherwise overlooked it.‐ Missoula Independent

90% Elle (2016) One of the most provocative, sexy and complex films of 2016.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
93% La La Land (2016) It's too long, the music isn't great, and I can't stand all the brightly colored twirling skirts. ‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2017
93% Fences (2016) These performances are killer, the source material is smart, and there's a lesson beneath the heavy-handedness that makes it worth the endeavor‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2016
89% Loving (2016) The lessons here strike me as entirely too safe for the current political climate.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2016
96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) Lonergan has a particular talent for laying people bare and showing how they work. You see yourself in his characters, and you want to help put them back together again.‐ Missoula Independent

82% Les Cowboys (2016) This is an intense, thoughtful film about family, obsession and man's search for grace in a world gone mad.‐ Vanguard Seattle
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2016
18% Intruder (2016) This is a consummate B-movie that follows the tropes of a stalker thriller in predictable but satisfying ways.‐ Vanguard Seattle

96% Nuts! (2016) I'm convinced that above anything else, Lane is a master of tone; it makes me eager to see what project she takes on next.‐ Vanguard Seattle
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2016
91% Microbe and Gasoline (Microbe et Gasoil) (2016) Microbe and Gasoline handles predictable scenes in unpredictable ways, and the weird stuff is so fun and strange that it makes up for anything pat.‐ Vanguard Seattle
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2016
87% The People vs. Fritz Bauer (Der Staat Gegen Fritz Bauer) (2016) The film consists mostly of serious white men standing in rooms, talking and sometimes arguing with one another. This isn't a criticism, per se. A serious German story deserves a serious German film -- but it's worth knowing this ahead of time.‐ Vanguard Seattle
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2016
36% Before I Disappear (2014) This is a humorous, emotional and engrossing film.‐ Vanguard Seattle

97% The Love Witch (2016) [The Love Witch] is different from any other movies you'll see in this or any other year.‐ Vanguard Seattle
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2016
93% In Pursuit of Silence (2016) Makes a valid case for why we might sometimes need to go out of our way to reach a place of quiet, and why that effort matters.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2016
91% Always Shine (2016) Always Shine makes for an absorbing, entertaining and surprisingly deep cinematic experience.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2016
91% A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) (2016) The film has so many clichés, well-trodden plot points, precious characters and heavy-handed sentiment that I almost can't believe I'm recommending it, but here we are. ‐ Missoula Independent

98% Moonlight (2016) I'm in love with these characters. I can't stop thinking about them. And I can't wait to see this movie again.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
92% Certain Women (2016) This film is not about plot. It's about people, specifically women, and their often-unceremonious place in the world.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2016
83% Denial (2016) A smart, serious and largely effective treatment of an important real life case that only occasionally disappointed me with too much sentiment.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2016
44% The Girl on the Train (2016) You may not see the plot twist coming, but that's only because the characters are so thin that everyone's a plausible suspect.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
70% Café Society (2016) Café Society has all the elements of a good Allen picture. The characters are nuanced and intelligent, and yet that burning, romantic feeling is mysteriously absent.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
98% Hell or High Water (2016) I can't think of another film in recent memory that has had so much respect for every one of its characters.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
79% Obit (2017) Overall, this is a competently made, elegant and insightful film that celebrates life and writing far more than it languishes in the tragedies of death.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
93% The Innocents (Les innocentes) (2016) The Innocents is the best foreign film I've seen this year.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
99% Don't Think Twice (2016) There's an honesty and urgency to the characters' plight that thoughtful viewers can't help recognize.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2016
100% I Am the Blues (2015) If I learned anything new from this picture, it would have to do with the contradictory nature of what it means to "be the blues." The music both comes out of and is an antidote for suffering, and the result is often joyful and exultant.‐ Missoula Independent

77% Wiener-Dog (2016) [Wiener-Dog] marks a triumphant return to form for Solondz.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2016
97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) Hunt for the Wilderpeople shows us a cruel, unsentimental and thankless world, and yet we're made to love that world anyway. ‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2016
35% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) Mike and Dave is dumb and sloppy, but there's a certain levity and joy among these four leading actors that make it hard for me to dismiss it entirely.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2016
31% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) Resurgence is a lot like the original, but worse.‐ Missoula Independent
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2016
80% Unlocking the Cage (2016) The film is at its best when it allows us to eavesdrop in the courtroom. When Wise argues in front of the New York Supreme Court, the judges ask tough, probing questions, and both the questions and answers are given their proper shrift.‐ Missoula Independent

89% The Lobster (2016) Claws down, The Lobster is the weirdest movie I've seen this year. ‐ Missoula Independent
