3.5/4 100% A Midsummer Night's Dream (2018) If you're hoping to see a production just like the one that would have been done in 1596, this ain't it. But Mott's version is a hell of a good time in its own right.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 66% Uncle Drew (2018) Uncle Drew mistakes its goofy pitch for a free pass to be simple with its comedy, and sappy with its emotions.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 86% Alex Strangelove (2018) As a modern coming-of-age movie, one that's especially meant to keep the progressive values of teen Netflix on the home page for another week or so, it does have a fair amount of charm.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 76% The Workers Cup (2018) A documentary with a defeated spirit, but with fleeting glimmers about why the oppressed keep playing.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 21% Rodin (2018) Doillon's filmmaking perfectly matches the passion of Rodin, like a musician biopic that feels like one of their songs.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 74% Breath (2018) In spite of his low-key ambitions, debut filmmaker Simon Baker doesn't yet have the eloquence as a director to get you on board. ‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 89% Pope Francis - A Man of His Word (2018) A non-denominational sermon, under the cinematic care of an artist first, Pope Francis fanboy second.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 86% Sollers Point (2018) Sollers Point is more bland and shapeless than any clearly empathetic project should be.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
2.5/4 40% Anon (2018) The script's heady intent proves to be exhausting, reducing a third act twist to a shoulder shrug, and a seemingly profound final line about life off the grid into a blank expression.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted May 5, 2018
2.5/4 55% Duck Butter (2018) Just like what Naima and Sergio are doing, the movie is itself an impulsive, fleeting relationship experiment with mixed results.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
3.5/4 89% Pass Over (2018) As a brilliant mix of the theatrical and cinematic, Lee's vivid adaptation of Pass Over does not concern just Nwandu's story, but the very experience of it.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 100% I Am Evidence (2017) I Am Evidence will be undoubtedly eye-opening.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 88% Lowlife (2018) A shallow exercise in nastiness, contriving different ways that people can be cruel to each other.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 29% Sherlock Gnomes (2018) With little wit to its name, Sherlock Gnomes becomes far more tedious than playful.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
43% First Light (2018) Stone's movie is one of the most frustrating kinds to run into while covering a festival comprised of upcoming filmmakers, the calling card project.‐ RogerEbert.com

Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2018
100% The Dawn Wall (2018) As the most genuine of crowd-pleasers, it will have you rooting instantly for the two hardworking, charismatic athletes. You'll start to root for the filmmaking, too.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 18, 2018
1.5/4 43% Demon House (2018) More superficial than supernatural.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2018
No Score Yet Wobble Palace (2018) While your comedic milage with its loose goofiness may vary, this movie succeeds in contributing a filmic time capsule that all generations need; Wobble Palace aptly shifts between cathartic and uncomfortable, but it's always recognizable.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 20% The Outsider (2018) Take Leto out of the picture and you have an even less noteworthy movie, a yakuza tale with an originality deficit.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2018
3.5/4 100% Hondros (2018) While Hondros prevails with its intimate POV, it also makes for a wide-scope tribute to the profession of photojournalism.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
No Score Yet Shot in the Dark (2017) Shot in the Dark truly takes viewers on an emotional journey, one in which there's so much to root for, on and off the court.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
2.5/4 54% Detective Chinatown 2 (2018) I can't give the film my most immediate recommendation, but for anyone concerned about the case of the missing modern buddy cop comedy, Detective Chinatown 2 is a noteworthy placeholder.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2018
3/4 86% Still/Born (2018) An inspired-enough take on a woman's horror, where the fear of losing her other baby becomes a terror itself, as expressed through an excellent performance.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
87% The Cleaners (2018) The Cleaners prevails most by shining a light on those whose existence has all but been erased by a flawed system, all so that everyone else can still be heard on social media.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% Genesis 2.0 (2018) Though it is a slow burn, the doc is rewarding for the incredible, historic events captured within.‐ RogerEbert.com

52% Generation Wealth (2018) Through her dedication to other people's lives, and with such open-book storytelling of her own, Greenfield is able to make a stunningly deeply resonant documentary about notions as seemingly obvious as the value of love over wealth itself.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2018
100% Shirkers (2018) Tan presents her multifaceted life story-vibrant, unbelievable, and full of such incredible women-as a dazzling tapestry that's unlike many narrative or documentary films.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2018
2.5/4 76% Braven (2018) An automatic type of action movie, often only challenging its predictability by getting goofier and goofier.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2018
100% Skate Kitchen (2018) Skate Kitchen exists in a time when it's still not normalized for men to see women on skateboards, but the crystal clear coolness of Moselle's film proves they should get with the program.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
100% Night Comes On (2018) A strikingly tender handling of such a tough albeit totally human tale. The amount of empathy within Night Comes On is a spectacle itself.‐ RogerEbert.com

94% Madeline's Madeline (2018) [Helena Howard] is the center spectacle, and the movie plays like a fever dream inside her new, fascinating mind.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% A Boy. A Girl. A Dream. (2018) The film is best as a showcase of [Good and Hardwick's] talents, but only when it gives them something to say.‐ RogerEbert.com

83% Holiday (2018) For a directorial vision that wants to challenge what we do and don't see, Eklof also adds complications to trauma that make Holiday a searing character study.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2018
59% Juliet, Naked (2018) A little ditty of an indie romance, with scant lyricism to get stuck in your head.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2018
33% An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn (2018) Jim Hosking's An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn is terrible, but I bet the outtakes are incredible.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2018
50% Burden (2018) Its narrative focus leans the movie toward having more of a white-savior complex, even though that does make Garrett Hedlund's portrayal of Burden a very complicated type of hero.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2018
No Score Yet Monster (2018) In its strongest passages, Monster is about establishing the humanity of a young black man. But it hardly expands beyond a timely Law & Order episode, albeit with more of a focus on racial politics.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2018
82% Monsters and Men (2018) It's best when relying on its performers, as these men provide the type of inner debate that Monsters and Men too easily simplifies with its script.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2018
83% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) The people in this story are flesh-and-blood examples of a tragic emotional Stockholm Syndrome that should not be. I just wish the story did more with them.‐ RogerEbert.com

81% Nancy (2018) Nancy has an intellectual savviness to its sadness that works, as it challenges viewers on their compassion and ability to recognize something within someone who is so lost.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% Wildlife (2018) Dano aces the formal requirements that make a good film. But there's so much that is great in this debut, and not enough that feels original.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% On Her Shoulders (2018) Being in the same room with Nadia says enough in the very powerful On Her Shoulders, even when she is alone with her thoughts.‐ RogerEbert.com
