Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Bad Exorcists (2015) Bad Exorcists remains laugh-out-loud funny until the very end, when things resolve on a flat note.‐ Willamette Week

3/4 79% Without Name (2016) Fans of Altered States, The Wicker Man and The Witch will enjoy Finnegan's psychedelic montages, Eric's descent into madness, and the forest's meditative unease.‐ Willamette Week

4/4 91% A Dark Song (2017) This ritualistic haunter is scary, the mood rarely breaks, and for once we get a horror movie with a functional character arc.‐ Willamette Week

4/4 92% Obit (2017) The writers' stories are juxtaposed snugly beside the details of their subjects to create an exceptionally tight, often hilarious film.‐ Willamette Week

1/4 85% The Death of Louis XIV (La mort de Louis XIV) (2017) Aside from Louis' demise, little happens aside from the fretting of charlatan doctors and hand-wringing of courtly devotees. Jean-Pierre Léaud's star performance is masterful, but cannot breathe life into this exquisite corpse.‐ Willamette Week

3/4 75% We Are the Flesh (Tenemos la carne) (2017) The dialogue is as poetic as the story is ambiguous, but strong performances and a muted, artful visual style keep this from straying into exploitation territory. Bring a long attention span and a strong stomach.‐ Willamette Week

A 100% One More Time With Feeling (2016) While he's a compelling subject on his own -- and remarkably vulnerable -- it's his relationships with his musical partner Warren Ellis and his wife, Susie Bick, that anchor Cave's ability to work through his grief.‐ Willamette Week

97% Mavis! (2016) Today, at 75, [Mavis Staples has] been rediscovered by this fantastic HBO production that's directed, produced and edited by only women.‐ Willamette Week

No Score Yet Jaco (2015) Using color Super 8 footage from Jaco's early life and funding from Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo to great effect, Jaco spares no expense in telling the tragic story of this incredible musician.‐ Willamette Week

No Score Yet Korla (2016) It's a remarkable and puzzling mystery, unraveled in this engaging film.‐ Willamette Week

80% We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! (2016) Even if you're not a fan of the music or image, We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! is an inspirational testament to faith, courage and big hair.‐ Willamette Week

B- 95% Gimme Danger (2016) Jarmusch leaves no fingerprints, making this documentary a rather straightforward, artless exercise. Nevertheless, the film is carried by its subject matter, the music and a handful of long interviews with Iggy Pop that largely serve as narration.‐ Willamette Week

A 96% The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years (2016) Howard can't help but overshoot the mark here, extending the story into a bit more of a biography than the subtitle calls for, but that's also what makes this film a worthwhile gateway for the uninitiated.‐ Willamette Week

C+ 76% Lights Out (2016) A general audience will be unnerved, occasionally scared out of their wits, and probably satisfied by this old-fashioned exploration of fear of the dark. Horror enthusiasts will bemoan this tepid, overly safe foray.‐ Willamette Week

C 57% The Neon Demon (2016) Patient fans of eye candy may get their money's worth from Neon Demon, but those craving a good story will be better served with another viewing of Black Swan.‐ Willamette Week

A No Score Yet Morphine Journey of Dreams (2014) The best music documentaries simultaneously humanize and immortalize their subjects... the viewer should walk away with a deeper understanding, appreciation and emotional involvement with the artist. Shuman's doc succeeds on all levels.‐ Willamette Week

B+ No Score Yet The Lives Of Hamilton Fish (2016) Once you're in its thrall, Mason's dramatic indie-folk score is surprisingly effective, tempering the darkness of Marissa Nadler with a hint of Yoko Ono.‐ Willamette Week

B+ 91% Love & Mercy (2015) Fans will delight in the picture-perfect re-creations of Wilson's parties, photo shoots and recording sessions.‐ Willamette Week
