2.5/4 91% Our Little Sister (Umimachi Diary) (2016) ""Sister" ... broods on the past, on how it defines the present and future, but as a film about remembering it is not especially memorable. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 28, 2016
3/4 80% Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You (2016) "The film inserts us into a solipsistic universe of Norman Lear, one that also overlaps many of the most significant social, political, and show-biz issues of the second half of the 20th century. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 28, 2016
3/4 80% Les Cowboys (2016) "It takes a lot of confidence for a director to pay homage to John Ford's "The Searchers" (1956), and in the case of Thomas Bidegain's "Les Cowboys" it is not altogether unwarranted. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 28, 2016
3/4 72% Wiener-Dog (2016) "As he gets older, Todd Solondz outgrows the cheap shocks and easy nihilism and stumbles toward a mellow misanthropy. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 30, 2016
2/4 70% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) "A hollow movie. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 30, 2016
3/4 94% Tickled (2016) "Though his lighthearted tone has difficulties keeping up with each new sinister discovery, Farrier has exposed in the least likely setting the network of power and money that preys on the weak with impunity. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 23, 2016
2/4 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "There are only so many times a slamming door will get an audience to jump. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 10, 2016
3.5/4 90% Neon Bull (Boi Neon) (2016) "Mascaro works much like his protagonist, gathering together details, images, and scenes to create unexpected visions. The narrative seems desultory and repetitive until it coalesces into some arresting, if not perverse, sequences. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 7, 2016
3.5/4 98% Aferim! (2016) "The tone is Rabelaisian and earthily comic in the minimalist, picturesque squalor of the settings. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 7, 2016
2.5/4 71% The Final Master (2016) "Initially astonishing, overly complicated, increasingly incoherent, and ultimately silly ... " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 2, 2016
3.5/4 82% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) "It balances otherworldliness and banality, sublimity and grotesquery, wonder and horror. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 2, 2016
3.5/4 94% Presenting Princess Shaw (2016) "Just when you were about to give up on the Internet as a swamp full of trolls, bullies, and liars, along comes a documentary like Ido Haar's "Presenting Princess Shaw." " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 2, 2016
3.5/4 86% Time To Choose (2016) "Efficient, cogently argued, and visually compelling ... " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 2, 2016
3/4 97% Dark Horse (2016) "A remarkable tale about ordinary people, and Osmond keeps it simple with her conventional style and good-natured manipulation. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 26, 2016
3.5/4 81% Chevalier (2016) "It's a study of the middle-age male ego in all its preadolescent pathos, regarded with a warmhearted sense of irony and the absurd. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 26, 2016
3/4 89% A Monster With A Thousand Heads (Un Monstruo de Mil Cabezas) (2016) "Plá's comedy is black, but his moral position isn't black and white. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 19, 2016
3.5/4 90% The Lobster (2016) "It takes a touch of audacity and madness to make a film like this, a screwball, absurdist tragedy that might be a little too long and contrived for some viewers' taste. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 19, 2016
2.5/4 80% Sunset Song (2016) "Has its moments of grace, but too often resorts to conventions and a tone of high lugubriousness. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 19, 2016
4/4 88% No Home Movie (2016) "Akerman ... is her own best spokesperson as she discusses her films at locations where they were shot. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 19, 2016
3/4 100% I Don't Belong Anywhere - Le cinéma de Chantal Akerman "[An] intelligent, subtle documentary ... " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 19, 2016
3/4 92% Notfilm "Though not as polished as "Film," Lipman's "Notfilm" might be that rare instance where the critical commentary is of more interest than the work itself. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 19, 2016
3/4 62% High-Rise (2016) "Wheatley renders this breakdown of civilization in jaunty montages of assaults, orgies, murders, and mounds of garbage, images backed by music ranging from Portishead to Bach's Brandenburg Concertos. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 12, 2016
2.5/4 71% Too Late (2016) "With "Too Late," Hauck confirms that he's a master of the film medium. What's less convincing is why this film matters. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 5, 2016
2/4 84% The Meddler (2016) ""The Meddler" is a disappointment after the talent Scafaria demonstrated in her 2012 feature debut "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World." " ‐ Boston Globe

Posted Apr 28, 2016
1.5/4 61% Dough (2016) ""Dough" includes no secret ingredient. It does, however, mix the makings of many other movie recipes, in the unfounded hope of coming up with something fresh. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 28, 2016
1.5/4 8% Papa: Hemingway in Cuba (2016) "Petitclerc's screenplay dramatizes his relationship with Hemingway from his own not-very-interesting point-of-view. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 28, 2016
1/4 7% Mother's Day (2016) "It's like a nightmare in which you are trapped in an endless Kmart aisle of horrible holiday cards. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 28, 2016
3.5/4 88% Francofonia (2016) "Sokurov's elegy for Europe - and for art - is eloquent, sorrowful, and challenging. And films like this suggest that such epitaphs may be premature. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3/4 97% Sing Street (2016) "Those put off by the prospect of a musical in the '80s pop style of Duran Duran or Pet Shop Boys should cast their prejudices aside when it comes to John Carney's "Sing Street." You might find yourself singing along. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 21, 2016
2.5/4 31% Criminal (2016) "Kevin, why don't they just let you be bad as you want to be? " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 14, 2016
3/4 97% The Dark Horse (2016) ""Dark Horse" falls into the formula of underprivileged kids challenging the elites at their own game. But the outcome is never certain. " ‐ Boston Globe

Posted Apr 7, 2016
3.5/4 88% The Invitation (2016) "Kusama's handling of point of view is diabolically shrewd. She maximizes the terror potential of the vapidly ostentatious modernist mansion without fetishizing it. She intensifies the monstrosity of some of the characters by making them all too human. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 7, 2016
2.5/4 90% The Clan (El Clan) (2016) "A mordant if unwieldy thriller examining how evil not only becomes the norm, but a virtue. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 1, 2016
3.5/4 21% I Saw the Light (2016) "Tom Hiddleston puts in a performance as Williams that ranks with that of Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash in "I Walk the Line." And Hiddleston gets to do it in a better movie. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 1, 2016
3/4 70% Take Me To The River (2016) "Sobel evokes more terror from a shot of a field of sunflowers, or a weathered barn, than can be found in the last dozen found-footage films combined. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 1, 2016
1.5/4 No Score Yet Alienated (2016) "Is it necessary to make a film about alienation that's alienating as well? " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 24, 2016
1.5/4 83% Hello, My Name is Doris (2016) "After mugging us for laughs with grotesque close-ups of her bewildered, disgruntled, or near-orgasmic expressions, Field next tries to touch our hearts with her pitifulness. Stay away, crazy woman! " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 17, 2016
3/4 71% Remember (2016) "It touches on big topics like the Holocaust, dementia, and middle-class American mores, and in doing so verges on bad taste. Despite all that, and an implausible plot, Egoyan ekes out an engaging and meaningful potboiler. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 17, 2016
2/4 44% Miracles from Heaven (2016) "Riggen has no shame when it comes to jerking the tears, and sometimes her manipulations work even on the hardest of hearts... One thing she should probably work on is the comedy. " ‐ Boston Globe

3/4 No Score Yet Talent Has Hunger (2016) "An illuminating celebration of music and the art of teaching ... " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 10, 2016
3.5/4 100% Trapped (2016) "Porter deftly presents statistics, graphs, and background information. But she also shows the intimate, inspiring, and sometimes heartbreaking day-to-day drama of the dedicated staff and owners of the clinics ... " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 10, 2016
3.5/4 98% Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016) "Though some of the concepts may be New Age boilerplate, the film's images linger; especially that of the river, the snake devouring us all. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 10, 2016
2.5/4 89% The Boy And The Beast (Bakemono No Ko) (2016) "A mish-mash that seems original. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 3, 2016
2/4 81% The Wave (Bolgen) (2016) "Norway is a small, orderly country, and if Roar Uthaug's "The Wave" is an indication, its disaster movies are small and orderly as well. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 3, 2016
2.5/4 67% Theory of Obscurity: A Film About the Residents (2016) "The film is a must-see for those who want to be introduced to the band, even if part way through you may find that you've hit your limit. " ‐ Boston Globe
