Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B+ 98% The Fits (2016) There's much to ponder in its metaphysical poetry, thoughtful camera work and editing and, above all else, its persistent fly-on-the-wall curiosity, the camera a soulful twin to Toni's ever-searching eyes.‐ Film Experience

86% Closet Monster (2016) It's the best English language teen LGBT film in recent years.‐ Film Experience

C- 42% Love (2015) This 3D sex movie is much more banal both visually and narratively than you'd expect.‐ Film Experience

B+ 66% Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story) (2016) The storyline may be nothing more than a naked French version of classic coming-of-age running-wild drama but what's special here is the filmmaking.‐ Film Experience

B 79% The Family Fang (2016) It doesn't always nail its more ambitious attempts to be about the emotional cost of art for artists but it's highly watchable and interesting.‐ Film Experience

B 61% High-Rise (2016) If you can get past the nihilism and poor treatment of animals, the film has plentiful pleasures including a smart performance from Hiddleston and rich filmmaking from every department.‐ Film Experience

B 83% Hello, My Name is Doris (2016) It manages to be both funny and endearing because Field knows to play both the external comedy and the internal drama.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Apr 15, 2016
C+ 22% The Boss (2016) The results are, shall we say, uneven so be in the right mood for it if you're going.‐ Film Experience

16% Gods Of Egypt (2016) The result is a hilarious hodgepodge of styles, accents, and wildly varying degrees of success at self-amusement.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2016
87% The Club (El Club) (2016) Fans of disturbing cinema might admire Larraîn's chutzpah but everyone else should steer clear. ‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2016
B 100% Ixcanul (2016) Bustamante's well crafted film is authentically steeped in a nearly alien culture but its humanity is entirely familiar.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2016
A- 98% Mustang (2015) Mustang has successfully rowdy comedic moments, an earthy non-exploitive sensuality, often clever visual framing, and even a hard-won scrappy optimism to balance out its tough reality checks. In short: it's excellent.‐ Film Experience

82% Glassland (2016) Jack Reynor (future star) ably carries the movie until Collette intermittently pops up to seize the camera and devour her desperate son's entire life force.‐ Film Experience

87% Phantom Boy (2016) Highly recommended.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2016
No Score Yet Invisible (Imbisibol) (2015) The pace is excruciating in the way only art films can be when they aren't careful about when to hold a shot and when to let one go since there's actually no scene there.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2016
B 100% As I Open My Eyes (À peine j'ouvre les yeux) (2016) The combative but loving mother/daughter relationship which starts as the subplot and gradually takes over is unexpectedly compelling by the melancholy older-but-wiser end.‐ Film Experience

No Score Yet Eva Doesn't Sleep (Eva No Duerme) (2015) What did I just watch? I think it was good.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2016
91% The Witch (2016) It's hard to describe how spectacularly creepy and perverse it all feels in the last half hour.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2016
A- 97% 45 Years (2015) The film is cooly mounted, not just in its color palette and the weather but in its chill vibe; nothing at all is really happening but everything is being considered and reframed.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2016
63% Magic Mike XXL (2015) Despite a bunch of trouble in the final act, I wouldn't dream of telling anyone not to see the picture.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2015
C+ 45% A Little Chaos (2015) How to describe that thing where you thoroughly enjoy watching something that is neither objectively good, nor enjoyably bad?‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2015
75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) Age of Ultron's first act is basically one long doozy of a set piece, which manages to give us time alone with every principle character and give them some connective tissue in battle together, too.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2015
B 85% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) Such as it is then, Far From the Madding Crowd, is a mixed bag, but one that's easy to recommend.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2015
97% Tangerine (2015) Again we find Baker looking at places others haven't thought to look -- or at least haven't looked at with anything like the same affectionate humor and nuanced humanity.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2015
C- 73% Miles Ahead (2016) Miles Ahead has no center apart from Cheadle's commanding presence and his raspy Davis whisper.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2015
D 20% I Saw the Light (2016) The inertia arrives very early and settles in for good.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2015
52% Demolition (2016) Unfortunately [Gyllenhaal is] running rings around the movie.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2015
B+ 81% Labyrinth Of Lies (2015) Labyrinth of Lies is glossily made (perhaps too glossy?), well acted, and moving with a constant throughline of the need for survivors to tell their stories and for people to understand their own country's history and face their own demons.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2015
97% Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016) Ciro Guerra's third film wraps itself all around you with otherworldly danger.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2015

Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2014
B+ 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) Like watching a less soulful Toy Story movie on a sugar binge. I mean this as (mostly) a compliment.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2014
B+ 87% Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter (2015) The film's great strength is in its eerie expressive visuals.‐ Film Experience

75% Enemy (2014) I kinda dug it but I have no idea if it's any good or what happened or where I am anymore and what aiiiiiiiieeeeeeee that last sound/shot. WTF ‐ Film Experience

c 87% Abuse of Weakness (2014) It's as if Breillat is determined to make the same mistakes all over again, botching her own would be exorcism. ‐ Film Experience

Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2012
D+ 72% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) Loses the pop pleasure and inspiration of the original trilogy while never making a case for its own existence.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2012
B+ 92% Farewell, My Queen (2012) Psychologically knotty and bracingly immediate... Léa Seydoux is riveting.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2012
B- 87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) The weakest of Nolan's three Batmans with offputting politics and a dull villain but its fascinatingly vertical construction and Catwoman save it.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2012
A- 81% Magic Mike (2012) You go to see seven spectacularly formed male bodies but the movie turns out to be all sculpted, too. Soderbergh's best film since Erin Brockovich‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2012
B 85% 21 Jump Street (2012) The best thing that can be said for it is that it never coasts on just one type of joke; funny in execution, not just in concept. ‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2012
C+ 49% Mirror Mirror (2012) The Queen sees herself in the magic mirror which is a nice twist. But it's a slightly altered version of herself. The movie is like that, too -just a little bit off while trying hard to be "on":‐ Film Experience

B 78% The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2012) I went, as I imagine many people will, for some Quality Dame Time and I got it so I shouldn't complain...‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2012
C 37% Dark Shadows (2012) Burton can still deliver a great visual hook and whimsical comedy. But he seems caught between his new laziness and his old genuine excitement about filmmaking.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2012
B+ 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) Wonderful blink and you'll miss them comic beats in the middle of the finale's mayhem. And what glorious mayhem!‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2012
C 49% Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) If you can suspend your disbelief that Kristen Stewart is "the fairest of all them all" in a beauty contest with Charlize Theron...‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2012
C 41% Rock of Ages (2012) Rock of Ages will rock you... or at least lightly jostle you. ‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2012
86% The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) Despite the riveting Lisbeth reinvention and Fincher's visual prowess, source material problems remain in the form of creepy sexual politics and patchwork storytelling.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2011
A 96% The Artist (2011) The gifted director never settles, always reaching for bigger laughs, and delivering unexpected and immensely clever mise en scène. The actors are magicians, too.‐ Film Experience
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2011
90% Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011) a model of restraint and cool control, writer/director Sean Durkin and lead actress Elizabeth Olsen eschew easy thrills and familiar movie comforts for truly unsettling internal horrors.‐ Film Experience
