2/4 83% Afterward (2020) While Bloch's emotions and thoughts about the Holocaust and the Israeli occupation are deeply felt, the documentary's finer points are a little less clear. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

44% Three Christs (2020) Follows a relatively well-tread formula, which is perhaps why it feels so inert. It's a good, relative surface-level reading of events, but the man-on-a-crusade approach feels so much more dramatic than it needs to be. - TheWrap EDIT

98% Midnight Family (2019) "Midnight Family" is both a compassionate portrait of a working-class family and a frightening ride through a broken healthcare system that risks the lives of both patients and providers like the Ochoa family. - TheWrap EDIT

1.5/4 37% Seberg (2020) However well-intentioned the effort to unearth Seberg's legacy and open this shameful chapter in American History, the movie's simplistic approach doesn't quite do her memory justice. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

2.5/4 72% The Aeronauts (2019) The thrill of The Aeronauts lies in its death-defying stunts. - RogerEbert.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2019
No Score Yet En Brazos de un Asesino (2019) The movie's few bright spots feel unintentional, like mistakes left in because no one else noticed the absurdity of some scenes or the comic potential in others. - TheWrap EDIT

100% Mickey and the Bear (2019) Through these complicated dynamics, Morrone navigates her character's many highs and lows with a touching sense of authenticity. - TheWrap EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2019
67% Un Traductor (2018) Infused with equal measures of work and domestic drama and a sense of helplessness in his situation, the movie is full of emotional moments, brought to life on the screen by a talented cast. - Remezcla EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2019
80% The Longest Night (La mala noche) (2019) Under the disguise of a compelling woman-led thriller, Dana's suffering had a purpose after all. - Remezcla EDIT

100% Everybody's Everything (2019) It's as if the documentary is a wake, a chance for people to swap stories and memories while the subject is lying in a coffin in the next room. - TheWrap EDIT

2.5/4 65% Lady and the Tramp (2019) As far as feel-good fantasies go, it isn't so bad. - RogerEbert.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2019
95% The Apollo (2019) There's probably a multi-part documentary series that could be built out of all that footage that zips by, from Ella Fitzgerald regally singing at the mic to a young Lauryn Hill bombing on amateur night. - TheWrap EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2019
3/4 93% Light from Light (2019) For a movie about grief, it's surprisingly even-handed, not too melancholic, heavy or existential but mostly pensive. - RogerEbert.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2019
1.5/4 62% Paradise Hills (2019) There are a few good ideas, and a few good twists at the end, but it's not enough to make up for the rookie mistakes that undercut its potential. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

67% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Their adventures take on delicious new turns but never stray too far from the original idea of what it means to be a family when most of humanity has turned into brain-eating corpses. - TheWrap EDIT

41% Wasp Network (2019) It is neither for nor by us, on either side of the Cuba-U.S. divide, but from another outside perspective entirely. - Remezcla EDIT

2.5/4 11% Jexi (2019) Unfortunately, the phone can't fix all of the movie's problems. - RogerEbert.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2019
100% Emanuel (2019) It is a tribute to those who lost loved ones, but it's also a movie with a message, one that emphasizes some survivors and family members' willingness to forgive Roof just mere days after he walked into their church. - TheWrap EDIT

37% In the Tall Grass (2019) While it's not the sharpest of King's stories, Natali's cast redeems the film's shortcomings. - Polygon EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2019
No Score Yet The Ship of Monsters (La Nave de los Monstruos) (1960) A wildly energetic oddity that defies expectations. - Remezcla EDIT

80% August (Agosto) (2019) While the movie may serve as a dark reminder of this not-so-distant past, it's also a testament to the idea that life does not stop because of politics. - Remezcla EDIT

73% Blackbird (2019) While not all the notes in this film may work in harmony, it's the love in the story -- between the characters and in the actors' performances -- that holds the movie together. - RogerEbert.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2019
97% Ordinary Love (2020) There's a push and pull between two great actors that keeps the air between them charged. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2019
1/4 22% Lucy in the Sky (2019) There's a point at which this joke stops being funny and turns sad, and it's very early in its over two hours runtime. - RogerEbert.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2019
89% The Two Popes (2019) A surprisingly witty and illuminating look at the theologies of the two most recent popes. - Remezcla EDIT

87% Hustlers (2019) Hustlers recreates the riveting crime story for a semisweet feel-good movie that's entertaining from start to finish. - Remezcla EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2019
2/4 82% Judy (2019) Try as she might, Zellweger's Judy never goes beyond an impression of the multi-talented artist; her all-caps version of acting fails to allow the role to feel natural. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

93% Monos (2019) As Landes explores the psychology of a group of kids being asked to grow up too fast, he redirects some of our sympathy for the doctor to the kids who are swept up in something they (and by extension, the audience) may not fully understand. - TheWrap EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2019

60% The Moneychanger (Así habló el cambista) (2019) That extra layer of meaning that makes Humberto's saga so enticing. - Remezcla EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2019
86% Ms. Purple (2019) Each layer is so beautifully, subtly explored, you can get lost in the characters' emotions or just be swept away by Ante Cheng's cinematography, which graciously soaks in the street and neons light of Los Angeles. - TheWrap EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2019
No Score Yet Long Gone By (2019) It's a movie with a message - but one harder to grasp when hidden by sensationalism. - Remezcla EDIT

3/4 88% Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) In much of the same way seasoned runners make a marathon look easy, Bell makes leading this comedy look effortless. - RogerEbert.com EDIT

No Score Yet Too Beautiful: Our Right to Fight (2018) Whether she's running up several flights of stairs or punching sandbags in the yard, the movie consistently keeps the energy up. - Remezcla EDIT

97% Tigers Are Not Afraid (Vuelven) (2019) While del Toro puts his characters into historical conflicts, López is right at home spinning a modern-day fairytale that directly addresses the cost of daily violence. - TheWrap EDIT
