2.5/4 100% 2016 Oscar Nominated Shorts - Animated (2016) "The five Academy Award nominees for best animated short this year include one which, if MPAA rated, would probably get an R for graphic violence and nudity. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 28, 2016
1/4 30% Mojave (2016) "In his second directorial effort, "Mojave," Monahan has no ... map to follow, and he wanders in a land of sophomoric pretentiousness and banal profundities. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 28, 2016
3/4 60% Monster Hunt (2016) "[Hui] does not achieve the surreal grandeur of Hayao Miyazaki's animated films, but he has enough imagination and talent to engage his audience on its own level. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 21, 2016
4/4 92% Anomalisa (2015) "It takes a few minutes to catch on, and it would be indiscrete to specify what it is, but once you figure out what's really strange about it you have entered the solipsistic prison of a tormented mind. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 7, 2016
2/4 11% The Forest (2016) "Zada gets credible performances from Dormer and Kinney, but their characters undergo such unlikely psychological contortions that these efforts are to no avail. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 7, 2016
No Score Yet 9-man "Not only does her film convey the color and excitement of the event, it also analyzes it as a microcosm of the changing identity and role of the Chinese in American culture. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 1, 2016
3/4 88% The Big Short (2015) "Thanks to Anchorman (2004) auteur Adam McKay's caustic comedy The Big Short, the events of the great economic meltdown of 2008 are beginning to make sense. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Dec 23, 2015
2/4 80% Macbeth (2015) "The fundamental problem with this "Macbeth" is that it insists on reducing the mystery of motivation to the pop psychology of a magazine article. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Dec 10, 2015
3/4 92% The Creeping Garden (2015) "Documentarians find beauty everywhere, even in the world of slime mold. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Nov 19, 2015
0.5/4 44% Dangerous Men (2015) "Conceivably, it could serve as a primer for students on how not to make a movie, and perhaps as a deconstruction of filmic conventions for the more theoretical minded. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Nov 19, 2015
2/4 43% The 33 (2015) ""The 33" is a grind. Literally; lots of drilling that is as exciting as a root canal. That, plus sentimentality and platitudes - even Banderas has a hard time with lines like "That's the heart of the mountain. She finally broke." " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Nov 12, 2015
3.5/4 94% The Pearl Button (El botón de nácar) (2015) "As often happens in Guzmán's films, "The Pearl Button" keeps returning to the Augusto Pinochet dictatorship of 1973-90, during which thousands of Chileans were "disappeared," taken away and never seen again alive. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Nov 12, 2015

Posted Nov 5, 2015
3.5/4 95% The Wonders (2015) ""The Wonders" evokes many other films, but is utterly unique. It is like being privy to a marvelous story that Rohrwacher is telling herself. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Nov 5, 2015
2/4 65% Quantum of Solace (2008) "Like nearly every filmmaker these days (one exception: Paul Greengrass last year in The Bourne Ultimatum), Forster confuses meaningless cutting and shaky camera work with excitement. " ‐ Boston Phoenix

Posted Oct 29, 2015
3/4 33% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) "The film indulges in the unabashed goofiness that stoked Green's "Pineapple Express," and which Sandra Bullock demonstrated to raucous effect in "The Heat." " ‐ Boston Globe

2.5/4 61% Extraordinary Tales (2015) "The voices of the late Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi reading from the text isn't quite the same. But Garcia compensates with a different animation style for each of the five stories. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Oct 22, 2015
3.5/4 100% Stray Dog (2015) "Without voice-overs or interviews or other narrative cues, it offers vignettes from Hall's life, a mosaic portrait of a part of America that is misunderstood, dismissed, exploited, and wooed by outsiders. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Oct 22, 2015
3/4 91% In My Father's House (2015) "Though it brings limited insight to the problem of absent fathers in the black community, "In My Father's House" tells a story of loneliness, abandonment, anger, and joy that all can relate to. " ‐ Boston Globe

3/4 93% Breathe (2015) "Nuanced, sensitive, and unflinching ... " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Oct 1, 2015
4/4 93% Coming Home (2015) "Amnesia is one of the more hackneyed of plot devices, but it still resounds because memory signifies so much - history, identity, and what remains when time takes everything away. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Oct 1, 2015
2.5/4 100% Peace Officer (2015) "Surpasses the best episode of the now defunct "CSI" series in its suspense and fascinating procedural detail and rivals the intensity, ingenuity, and broader ramifications of Errol Morris's "The Thin Blue Line." " ‐ Boston Globe

Posted Sep 17, 2015
71% Wolf Totem (2015) "Annaud's adaptation of Jiang Rong's Chinese novel is a visual wonder but a dramatic dud, a cut-and-paste mess of plot snippets, illuminated by the occasional inspired visual conceit. " ‐ Boston Globe

Posted Sep 3, 2015
46% A Walk In The Woods (2015) "Nolte's performance elevates Katz to the pantheon of disheveled, dissolute sidekicks that includes Walter Brennan in To Have and Have Not, Walter Huston in The Treasure of Sierra Madre, and Edmond O'Brien in The Wild Bunch. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Sep 2, 2015

Posted Aug 27, 2015
3/4 94% Rosenwald (2015) "Like her subject, Kempner's film doesn't try to be flashy or stylish. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 27, 2015
3/4 88% Meru (2015) "Filmed with such grandeur and intimacy that sometimes attempting to figure out how they made the incredible shots almost spoils them. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 27, 2015
2/4 46% No Escape (2015) "No Escape is a tense but utterly predictable exercise in Western xenophobic paranoia and guilt. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 26, 2015
43% American Ultra (2015) "Eisenberg and Stewart have both found romantic partners with whom they have chemistry (some provided by controlled substances). Tender, forgiving, and sexy, they're the hottest couple on screen at the moment. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 20, 2015
68% Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet (2015) "Unfortunately the drawn-out, drably rendered framing device that strings together these flights of fancy does them no service, and the devout detours merely detract from the minimal appeal of the story. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 20, 2015
84% Call Me Lucky (2015) ""Call Me Lucky" lives up to the irony and accuracy of its title ... " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 20, 2015
