Fireworks Wednesday (Chaharshanbe-soori) (2016)

"[A] complex and magnificently acted melodrama ..." ‐Boston Globe

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

Papa: Hemingway in Cuba (2016)

"Petitclerc's screenplay dramatizes his relationship with Hemingway from his own not-very-interesting point-of-view." ‐Boston Globe

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

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

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

Criminal (2016)

"Kevin, why don't they just let you be bad as you want to be?" ‐Boston Globe

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

My Golden Days (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeunesse) (2016)

"Dense, lyrical, and polymorphous." ‐Boston Globe

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 20%

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

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

Alienated (2016)

"Is it necessary to make a film about alienation that's alienating as well?" ‐Boston Globe

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

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

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

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

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

2.5/4 89%

The Boy And The Beast (Bakemono No Ko) (2016)

"A mish-mash that seems original." ‐Boston Globe

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

2.5/4 67%

Theory of Obscurity: A Film About the Residents (2015)

"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

A War (Krigen) (2016)

"[It] may ... be among the best war movies of all time." ‐Boston Globe

Jack of the Red Hearts (2015)

"From the opening scene [Robb] takes over the screen with a coltish toughness and mercurial charisma." ‐Boston Globe

The Club (El Club) (2016)

"However artful Larraín's intentions, these are subjects best regarded with clarity." ‐Boston Globe

Risen (2016)

"We know how it turns out, but seeing from the point of view of someone who doesn't know and doesn't believe adds more cogency." ‐Boston Globe

How To Be Single (2016)

"Being single is a mess. So is the film, and it's almost messy enough to seem authentic." ‐Boston Globe

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

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

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

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

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

9-man (2014)

"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

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

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

The Creeping Garden (2015)

"Documentarians find beauty everywhere, even in the world of slime mold." ‐Boston Globe

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

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

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

Welcome To Leith (2015)

"Tense, incisive, and remarkably objective ..." ‐Boston Globe

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

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

Truth (2015)

"Engrossing and occasionally moving ..." ‐Boston Globe

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

Experimenter (2015)

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 92%

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
