86% Radio Dreams (2016) Contrasting wavelengths of humor and seriousness come through with impressive clarity in director/co-writer Babak Jalali's sophomore outing Radio Dreams.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% School Life (2017) Ostensibly documenting a year in the life of Headfort School... the Spanish co-production instead quickly reveals itself as an irresistibly admiring portrait of long-married couple John and Amanda Leyden, both staff members for over 40 years.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet The Future Perfect (El futuro perfecto) (2016) Wryly amusing, intriguingly stylized.‐ Hollywood Reporter

90% A Woman, A Part (2017) It's chiefly notable for Cara Seymour's nuanced supporting turn as Anna's sometime best friend, Kate.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2017
100% In Loco Parentis (2016) Ni Chianain and co-director David Rane make no attempts to reinvent the documentary wheel here, crafting a solid showcase for the charming idiosyncracies of their well-chosen, well-matched protagonists.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
74% Suntan (2017) As Kostis' neurosis shades into psychosis, the limitations of Papadimitropoulos and Tzoumerkas' increasingly blunt, tonally wayward and two-dimensional screenplay become apparent.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2017
No Score Yet White Sun (2016) The sky-high Himalayas and the aftermath of civil war cast equally dark shadows in White Sun (Seto Surya), an impressively accomplished second feature by Nepalese writer-director Deepak Rauniyar.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2017
No Score Yet The Great Game (Le grand jeu) (2017) A sophisticated French melange of The Ghost Writer and House of Cards, The Great Game (Le grand jeu) is a steadily engaging slow-burner that somehow never quite manages to catch fire.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2017
No Score Yet Sexy Durga (2017) A nightmarish experience in more ways than one, Sanal Kumar Sasidharan's improvised, nocturnal Indian road movie Sexy Durga forces protagonists and audience alike through a grueling ordeal with questionable rewards.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2017
80% Super Dark Times (2017) Strikingly shot, edited and scored, with convincing and vivid performances from a youthful cast, the picture loses its footing in the final stretch but should still take high rank among U.S. debuts of its ilk this year.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
No Score Yet Thousand Cuts (Le serpent aux mille coupures) (2017) Occasional wobbles of characterization apart, Thousand Cuts generally sustains its mood of steady, brooding swagger.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) Long-awaited, much-delayed and disappointingly redundant ...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2017
75% Stray Bullets (2017) An enjoyably blood-soaked thriller with unexpectedly lyrical interludes -- made very much in the shadow of classic genre forebears and on what was clearly a constrained budget -- this is a strikingly impressive calling-card.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
88% The Coming War On China (2016) A persuasively partisan example of old-school investigative journalism.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2016
No Score Yet Miss Kiet's Children (2016) A lovely, upbeat, even life-affirming film.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2016

Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2016
100% Ixcanul (2016) A solid example of low-key, well-observed, humanistically sympathetic ethnography.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
17% La corrispondenza (2016) Quite original, highly improbable and curiously cool.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
88% Garnet's Gold (2016) Sometimes all a documentary needs is one strong, charismatic personality to keep things watchable: Garnet's Gold boasts two in the form of the middle-aged eponymous protagonist and his feisty octogenarian mother.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2016
81% Cosmos (2016) This metaphysical French-Portuguese gabfest boasts the uncompromising intensity that has often been Zulawski's hallmark but leavens the stew with welcome streaks of off-kilter humor.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2016
70% Len and Company (2016) Primarily a showcase for the spiky charisma of star Rhys Ifans, it's a low-key study of strained family relations that creates and sustains a certain wryly flinty mood up until a disastrous 11th-hour lurch into violent melodrama.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2016
80% Fidelio, Alice's Journey (2015) Built four-square around Ariane Labed's engaging turn as eponymous sailor Alice, this feature debut from actress-turned-writer-director Lucie Borleteau strikes a delicate balance between the sensual and the matter-of-fact.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 23, 2016
90% The Boy And The Beast (Bakemono No Ko) (2016) A raucously entertaining if slightly overlong romp which borrows liberally from existing sources but has more than enough character and brio to stand foursquare on its own two hairy feet. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 29, 2016
89% We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! (2016) This persuasive paean to sheer bloody-minded persistence flies by over the course of 136 engrossing, often hilarious minutes.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2016
89% Bridgend (2016) The basic premise stretches credulity from the off.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2016
A- 87% The Club (El Club) (2016) [The film's story] may skirt credibility towards the latter stages but whose finale concludes matters in a persuasive, wickedly witty and provocative manner.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2016
90% Casa Grande (2015) Cavalcanti -- an occasional TV performer whose considerable musical gifts the guitar-strumming Jean shares -- makes for a consistently engaging and intriguing protagonist.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2015
88% Horse Money (2015) E even within the context of such unevenness, Costa's commitment to chronicling and implicitly dignifying the sufferings of the oppressed and the exploited provides Horse Money with a solid core.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2015
86% The Iron Ministry (2015) The parallel tracks of railways and cinema profitably converge yet again in J.P.Sniadecki's outstanding, semi-experimental documentary The Iron Ministry, a pungently immersive evocation of traveling on Chinese trains.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2015
D- 16% Queen of the Desert (2017) A stunning misfire.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2015
100% Song From The Forest (2015) Alternating between the urban jungle of Manhattan and the rain-forest of Africa with metronomic aplomb, award-winning German journalist and author Michael Obert effects an belated, auspicious transition to film-making with Song From the Forest.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2015
56% Set Fire To The Stars (2015) A steady, austere treatment of a notoriously and riotously rambunctious subject, Set Fire to the Stars takes a non-incendiary, safe-hands approach to potentially combustible material.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2015
89% Meru (2015) Meru is an engaging and cumulatively exhilarating debut from wife-and-husband team Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2015
64% We Are Monster (2015) This is very much Alexander's show. Despite moments of audition-piece excess, the young actor... almost single-handedly keeps We Are Monster watchable, exuding a malign charisma that dominates the screen and compels our appalled fascination.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 11, 2015
67% Navajazo (2014) Its title may be a Spanish word meaning "knife wound", but Ricardo Silva's pseudo-apocalyptic, sophomorically provocative debut Navajazo is much too surface-skimming to draw blood.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2015
100% Court (2015) Chaitanya Tamhane emerges as one of the world's most accomplished and promising film-makers under 30 with his quietly steely legal drama Court, a bluntly-titled chronicle of politically-motivated injustice.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2015
3/5 93% Force Majeure (2014) An essentially hollow contrivance, more concerned with pushing hot buttons and sparking discussion than organically developing characters or probing complex issues.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2015
79% That Guy Dick Miller (2015) At 90-odd minutes, it's more exhausting than illuminating -- there's not much time for anything resembling proper analysis.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2015
100% Of Horses and Men (2015) Strikingly good-looking if somewhat narratively uneven.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2015
80% Black Sea (2015) A semi-waterlogged confluence of the submarine and heist sub-genres which seeks to evoke a testosterone-soaked, 1970s feel.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2015
92% Death Metal Angola (2014) An upbeat chronicle of very hard rock in a very hard place, Death Metal Angola is one of the livelier and more enticingly exotic additions to the ever-burgeoning music-documentary sub-genre.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2014
75% Once Upon a Time Veronica (2014) Brazil's Marcelo Gomes leaps to the front rank of South American filmmakers.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2014
100% Gebo et l'ombre (2014) Old-school charm and expert performances elevate a somewhat creaky theatrical adaptation by the tireless centenarian Manoel de Oliveira.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 27, 2014
77% Jimmy's Hall (2015) What we're left with is an odd, only fitfully engaging hybrid of The Quiet Man and Footloose, which neither packs much of a punch nor is particularly nimble on its feet.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 23, 2014
93% Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case (2014) Accessible documentary serves as useful introduction to and informative update on an artist who's seldom out of the headlines for long.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 14, 2014
99% The Missing Picture (2014) A sobering, ultimately numbing peek into the living hell of 1970s Cambodia.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2014
95% A Hijacking (2013) A high-seas hostage-taking and resulting negotiations are absorbingly dramatized in this low-key Venice standout from Denmark's hottest new writer-director.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2013
96% Wrinkles (2014) Poignant animated feature about senior citizens is one the year's best Spanish films.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2013
100% Couleur de peau: Miel (Approved for Adoption) (2013) Animated semi-documentary takes a wry backward glance at an unorthodox childhood with sometimes affecting results.‐ Hollywood Reporter
