Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 60% Klown Forever (Klovn Forever) (2016) Director Mikkel Nørgaard cleverly plays on the natural chemistry these two actors have with one another, allowing for improvised dialogue based on the script's loose concept.‐ The Film Stage

C- 52% I Origins (2014) I Origins tries desperately to imbue a deeper metaphysical meaning with its narrative, but the alignment of all its concepts come off as disjointed and pretentious.‐ The Film Stage

B+ 97% Life Itself (2014) Roger Ebert was an unusual outlier in the world of critics, and Life Itself is an honorable testament to how he shaped the world of cinema as we know it today.‐ The Film Stage

C 39% Hits (2015) While it's nice to see Cross in the director's chair, it's a disappointment that Hits' satirical highs are undercut by a series of uninteresting scenarios.‐ The Film Stage

B- 91% Dear White People (2014) Dear White People offers up some droll and relevant observations on the commodification of race and ensures that Justin Simien is a filmmaker to watch.‐ The Film Stage

C 68% God Help the Girl (2014) God Save The Girl is an overly sentimental and drawn out experience whose stylistic pastiche of musicals is less clever than it thinks it is.‐ The Film Stage

B+ 86% Ballet 422 (2015) With its brisk pace and unique style, Ballet 422 is a cinematic gem that encapsulates the passion of two inspired artists, the one in front of the camera and the one behind it.‐ The Film Stage

A 88% The Tribe (2015) Easily the most intense movie experience of the the year, The Tribe is an unsettling examination of how the oppressed can become the oppressor.‐ The Film Stage

B+ 82% The Brand New Testament (Le tout nouveau testament) (2016) Take the charm and playful visual language of Amelie and pair it with a blistering satire of religious dogma, the end result would look something like [this].‐ The Film Stage

C 63% Schneider vs. Bax (2015) Hardly the titillating thrill ride you might expect from its premise.‐ The Film Stage

B- 72% Too Late (2016) Undeniably ambitious, Hauck's debut is a fascinating study of genre homage and cinematic technique that wears its heart on its sleeve, even if it's not always aware of that fact.‐ The Film Stage

B+ 81% Chi-Raq (2015) Deliriously satirical, bouncing between comedy, romance, and tragedy, yet it primarily serves as a wake up call for the disenfranchised people suffering in this country.‐ The Film Stage
