Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
88% A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) (2016) "Ove is a rare spiteful-curmudgeon-meets-new-neighbors fable that finds the measure of spite and sugar. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Sep 26, 2016
68% Operation Avalanche (2016) "I wouldn't recommend Operation Avalanche but I also wouldn't bet against Johnson's industry and ambition. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Sep 26, 2016
75% Goat (2016) "Psychologically plausible, plentifully punitive and painfully convincing about man as animal, Goat is a brute success. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Sep 20, 2016
80% The Thoughts That Once We Had "[D]ynamic cinema but it's also digressive bliss... a kaleidoscopic edition of the modern visual essay, a dream of a dreamer who dreams in movies. One can hope it's a rebuke to counting on studios for greatness and not also a remembrance of things past. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Sep 18, 2016
33% Max Rose (2016) "The sleek, sinister, brilliant talk show host Jerry Langford of "King of Comedy" is also a distant, burning memory: his Max Rose is a figure of ash, Lewis' watery blue eyes the one expressive, sorrowful, sad-clown trait that both characters share. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Sep 18, 2016
100% Silicon Cowboys (2016) "The spunk of the young bucks from Houston entertains, and the slick telling is largely upbeat entertainment. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Sep 18, 2016
74% London Road (2016) "Dialogue is drawn from interviews with police, residents and sex workers, so it's also a thriller. And it's a blast: the world, as bad as it gets, and worse, is carried by song and the inner voices of those without voice is revealed. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Sep 18, 2016
76% The Apostate (El Apóstata) (2016) "Histories are spoken, and implied further, specialized knowledge that should not bother his characters to such ends. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Sep 18, 2016
80% Author: The JT LeRoy Story (2016) "A portrait of this level of deception, self-deception, of creative pathology, of narcissists giddily getting taken for a ride, is a rich and necessary one. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Sep 18, 2016
94% Demon (2016) "This world and the otherworldly embrace in riotous fashion as the wedding party grows more degenerate and destructive through the night. [D]ark seethes into the greater dark. The ordinary will get you, because the extraordinary is directly beneath it. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Sep 18, 2016
86% My Love, Don't Cross That River (2016) "The ending, which we are prepared for in the sere, winter-set opening, is a thundercrack, earned, true, heartbreaking. Time stops. Time goes on. There is weeping. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Sep 12, 2016
96% Hooligan Sparrow (2016) "The shards of surveillance of secret police, of intimidation by plainclothes operatives and the sheer oppressive weight meant to crush resistance are equally horrifying, and captured with kaleidoscopic perseverance. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 30, 2016
88% Miss Sharon Jones! (2016) "A tingle of what a fine and fierce figure could have been onscreen. Still, [Jones'] energy is a rebuke to the easily defeated. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 30, 2016
98% Little Men (2016) "Questions like, "what is family?" and "what is money?" are dramatized with delicate, elusive craft through the handiwork of craftspeople doing what they do best... lovely and hopeful, but shattering. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 29, 2016
88% Mia Madre (2016) "A full-to-heartbursting film, with extremes of joy and sorrow in a small, assured yet teeming narrative. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 29, 2016
85% The People vs. Fritz Bauer (Der Staat Gegen Fritz Bauer) (2016) " Low-key but absorbing thriller... Klaussner suggests tenacity and determination in every gesture, as layer and layer of detail is patiently revealed. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 29, 2016
93% The Innocents (Les innocentes) (2016) "The world is transformed by being in it, by being alive to it, Fontaine demonstrates. " ‐ Newcity

93% The Innocents (Les innocentes) (2016) "The world is transformed by being in it, by being alive to it, Fontaine demonstrates. " ‐ Movie City News
Posted Aug 29, 2016
88% Don't Breathe (2016) "The stylish, severe Don't Breathe is one of the most cruel and clever, yet electrifying, horror-thriller movies in an age of "going there" versus "going there." " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 26, 2016
89% Morris from America (2016) "Craig Robinson is the revelation here. Always charming and charismatic in smaller roles, this is a reserved yet emphatically exhilarating screen performance. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 26, 2016
93% Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) "Herzog's observations, however, are steeped in optimism, an embrace of the mystic, and, even, good humor. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 26, 2016
71% My King (Mon roi) (2016) "They're fiery, they're pretty, they're madcap, they're awfully annoying. Lelouch for the twenty-first century, for all the good and bad that it suggests, way up close and always in your face, just call it "A Man And A Woman And Maïwenn." " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 17, 2016
98% Hell or High Water (2016) "Moment to moment, frame for frame, David Mackenzie's Hell Or High Water is the best American movie released so far this year. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 12, 2016
75% Lace Crater (2016) "Atkins' modest means bely ambitious notions about the haunted self, drawing not only from the lo-fi snapshots of early comedies by Bujalski and Swanberg but, yes, even the psychological horror of Polanski. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 12, 2016
56% For the Plasma "[For the Plasma] mixes verdant landscape with shimmery surveillance and passages of solitude with the simmer of paranoia in a fashion not often played through in narrative filmmaking. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 10, 2016
26% Suicide Squad (2016) "A PG-13 jab at grimy, scuzzy, post-punk, post-Michael Mann, nearly-post-Zack Snyder bubblegum antihero action. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Aug 3, 2016
90% Microbe and Gasoline (Microbe et Gasoil) (2016) "The heartfelt, personal Microbe & Gasoline may be Gondry's best work since the still incredible Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jul 25, 2016
94% Black Girl (La noire de...) (1966) "Historical importance aside, it's startling how elementally lyrical, how starkly political, the watchful, heightened naturalism of this essential masterpiece is. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jul 25, 2016
79% The Other Side (Louisiana) (2016) "It's like Larry Clark with stakes, with a beating heart, or Harmony Korine with candor instead of vaudeville. Whatever the mix of truth to fiction, a sense of authenticity pervades each gesture. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jul 21, 2016
71% Café Society (2016) "Allen's best-looking movie since the heyday of his seminal collaborations with Gordon Willis. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jul 19, 2016
No Score Yet Director's Cut (2016) "Director's Cut is a spoof within a spoof within a spoof... or as Woody Allen once said in another context, "a mockery of a travesty of a sham." " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jul 7, 2016
95% A Touch of Zen (1969) "A vigorous heroine, ghosts, balletic battles, political friction, the greenest of green bamboo and a mystical ending that satisfies without resolution. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 29, 2016
68% Swiss Army Man (2016) "References to Jurassic Park, E. T. and Superman don't elevate the conceit of life after death after death to resonant cultural myth, or deliver on its incessant nattering about masculine insecurity. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 28, 2016
88% Neon Bull (Boi Neon) (2016) "A succession of voluptuary visuals in its sketched-in scenes and dabs of poetic fancy, with humans, with animals and with humans who dance wearing a mask of a horse's head. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 28, 2016
75% The BFG (2016) "Small, smart girls may justifiably love The BFG. And boys? There's always the Rube Goldberg-esque scene in the Palace where fizzy farts burst free from all assembled, from giants to Queens, to the strains of a squad of bagpipers. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 27, 2016
100% The Wailing (Goksung) (2016) "Neighborly distrust, profane banter and insults, dark omens, bedeviled dreams, overt Biblical portent and doomed police investigation " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 23, 2016
91% Three (Saam Yan Hang) (2016) "To mixes the best of digital innovation with tangible human figures in motion in a demolishing four-minute sustained take. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 23, 2016
53% The Neon Demon (2016) "Minimalism and maximalism, a languorous rush of images and wall of music hangered onto a fairytale of an underage girl who arrives in LA in hope of becoming a model and then falls in with a perverse raft of archetypes atop waves of deep crimson imagery. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 22, 2016
67% The Wait (L'attesa) (2016) "for those who study its surfaces, there is breath and wind and wonder in its Sicilian settings and its human shape atop its blunt Christian symbolism. And across Binoche's features, there is life and time itself. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 22, 2016
95% Tickled (2016) "Creepy... Piquant picaresque. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 20, 2016
89% Our Last Tango (Un Tango Más) (2016) "Dance partners, a couple, rivals, lovers, a team, a dream, former lovers, tethered by passion driven by dance. Tango leads to lifelong melodrama? Si! " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 15, 2016
95% De Palma (2016) "Pungent retellings project-by-project across the decades of De Palma's career " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 12, 2016
81% Eva Hesse (2016) "Moving, incisive... chronicles the short life and decade-long career of the German-American sculptor and denizen of the 1960s art world with impressive command of both the scene Hesse found herself in, as well as the methods that led to [her] artwork. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 7, 2016
94% Blue Velvet (1986) "Gestures: ears; hands; bared necks; eyes, held still and fearful. Just within his grasp. Not clutching, not crushing, not brushing, not bruising. Just imminent. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 6, 2016
89% Dheepan (2016) "Audiard's dense yet flinty new thriller suggests the scope of the contemporary European migrant crisis in a muscular but intimate fashion. " ‐ Newcity
Posted Jun 1, 2016
73% How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can't Change (2016) " A film with moments as exuberant as in How To Let Go is so much finer than all the ones that make you want to reach for the nearest serrated knife and nearest soft wrist. " ‐ Newcity
Posted May 30, 2016
82% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) "Filth alternates with finery and the attractions are not limited to sea monsters, albino twins, bloody hearts, dragons, ogres, lechers, necromancers and monstrous, steak-eating fleas. It's an eyeful, but not a mind full. " ‐ Newcity
Posted May 26, 2016
70% Take Me To The River (2016) "All-too-familiar familial battleground, well-known from decades of low-budget indie drama. " ‐ Newcity

Posted May 25, 2016
52% Lolo (2016) "Delpy offers full and troubling rein with the complications of her light-to-dark comedy, with a son who can turn from sunshine to sonofab----on a centime. " ‐ Newcity
