32% Fun Mom Dinner (2017) Psst. Have you heard? On big screens across the nation women are behaving badly, really badly.‐ New York Times

85% The Incredible Jessica James (2017) This is Ms. Williams's movie, and she owns it.‐ New York Times

47% Person to Person (2017) The soundtrack - an infectious blend of retro gospel, R&B and funk - often feels too breezy and soulful for this mundane affair, especially when it precedes scenes with pouty teenagers, even if they're world-weary sorts.‐ New York Times

100% Chasing Coral (2017) Apocalyptic sci-fi? This is real life, in the documentary "Chasing Coral."‐ New York Times

95% The Women's Balcony (Ismach Hatani) (2017) Emil Ben-Shimon's smart direction and Shlomit Nehama's lighthearted and topical script ensure the proceedings not only hit all the right notes, but also entertain while being respectful of religious traditions.‐ New York Times

92% Tomorrow (Demain) (2017) Its real triumph is its pervasive feeling of hope.‐ New York Times

71% Gifted (2017) What's in a child's best interest? It depends on who's answering the question. That's the crux of "Gifted," the director Marc Webb's return to small-scale features after tangling with spidey.‐ New York Times

No Score Yet Olvidados (2015) While it would be a tall order to fully elucidate this complicated history in two hours, "Olvidados" is hamstrung by Mr. Bolado's lack of focused direction and a convoluted plot.‐ New York Times

40% We Are Your Friends (2015) If the filmmakers were aiming to mimic the flow of electronic dance music, they succeeded. The action slowly builds and breaks down, with dance beats kicking in periodically. Not much resonates here; it's all facile entertainment.‐ New York Times

0% Ungli (Unglee) (2014) While Mr. D'Silva's basic structure and pacing are fairly fluid, his movie suffers from Bollywood's typical kitchen-sink approach to filmmaking.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2014
8% Addicted (2014) The actors are uniformly handsome and mostly serviceable, though the same can't be said about the filmmaking or the writing.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2014
No Score Yet The Little Tin Man (2014) At its best, the movie has a sort of sitcom feel, with swift pacing and delivery, and the strong ensemble cast has a natural rapport.‐ New York Times

76% Canopy (2014) While not much is said in the Australian director Aaron Wilson's small-scale first feature, "Canopy," the film conveys volumes about war and humanity.‐ New York Times

No Score Yet This Is Not A Ball (2014) While the first third is promising ... the subsequent hour is scattershot.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2014
No Score Yet Tabloid Truth (2014) While Kim Kwang-sik deftly renders the fight and chase sequences, the film's unrelenting pace and tangled plot trump its limited efforts to address the feelings of despair or the broader moral issues at its heart.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2014
No Score Yet Hasee Toh Phasee (2014) While the film starts out as a seemingly fresh take on the romantic comedy, it is saddled with numerous contrivances and the clichéd trappings of the genre: big weddings, wayward souls and quick-to-judge elders.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2014
No Score Yet JFK: A President Betrayed (2013) Fifty years later, this is one of many additions to the Kennedy catalog. Although it's more suited for the small screen, it is a worthy entry nonetheless.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2013
No Score Yet Sex, Love & Salsa (2013) For a romantic comedy that doubles as a mockumentary, it can be downright creepy.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2013
No Score Yet L.A. Superheroes (2013) At times endearing, humorous and insightful.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2013
2.5/5 38% The Prime Ministers: The Pioneers (2013) A bit overstuffed with history and tales of perseverance, the film doesn't have room for balanced political analysis or even exposition at times.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2013
3.5/5 100% McConkey (2013) It's not about why he was such a thrill-seeking risk-taker but about appreciating his success in living life on his own terms.‐ New York Times

3.5/5 100% A River Changes Course (2013) Instead of delving into the politics of their plight, Ms. Mam delivers a universal story.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2013
3/5 33% Wedding Palace (2013) While the story is a bit weak, the film does a good job of contrasting Korean-Americans who steadfastly adhere to the traditions of their homeland with South Koreans who have renounced old customs.‐ New York Times

3.5/5 No Score Yet We Came Home (2013) Tis intimate film, Ms. Delawari's first, is about ... her family's history (seen in home movies and photographs), the resilience of the Afghan people, and her own story of self-discovery as a musician.‐ New York Times

2.5/5 80% Generation Iron (2013) For a documentary about extreme discipline, the filmmakers lack restraint: the movie, about 20 minutes too long, undercuts much of its own momentum.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2013
3/5 86% Red Obsession (2013) The movie raises legitimate concerns about the cultural and economic implications of status-minded overconsumption.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2013
5/5 82% The Good Son: The Life of Ray Boom Boom Mancini (2013) While Mr. Mancini mesmerizingly guides us to his present, Mr. Kriegel, friends like the actor Ed O'Neill and others advance the story of his past.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2013
3/5 53% When Comedy Went to School (2013) Fortunately for the filmmakers, most of the comedians interviewed here - Jerry Stiller, Jackie Mason, Jerry Lewis and many other (mostly male) voices - provide lighthearted remembrances to elevate this poorly executed documentary.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2013
2.5/5 11% Breaking The Girls (2013) An erotic thriller with too many twists and back stories to count.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2013
2/5 No Score Yet Ramaiya Vastavaiya (2013) Hardly any of it is convincing, and the proceedings are rife with clichés.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2013
2/5 27% Aroused (2013) It has an inviting softness, but the background music, odd camera angles, close-ups and lingering shots only distract and objectify.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 2, 2013
4/5 100% Rescue in the Philippines (2013) Recounts a little-known chapter of World War II heroism that is as heartbreaking as it is courageous.‐ New York Times

2/5 26% 21 And Over (2013) These guys get into more trouble in one night than members of this film's target audience will encounter in their entire college lives.‐ New York Times

1/5 37% The Collection (2012) Just a pointless exercise in sadism.‐ New York Times

2.5/5 No Score Yet Unmasked Judeophobia (2012) Ultimately the varying points are way too much to take on in one film.‐ New York Times
