3/4 92% Marjorie Prime (2017) The virtues in Marjorie Prime are modest, but the muted cinematography by Sean Price Williams adds enormously to the blurred vision of reality the characters feel throughout, and the cast is first-rate.‐ New York Observer

3/4 76% Shot Caller (2017) Achieving a hardy balance to a complex character and heightened importance to an otherwise terminally depressing study in total immorality, the star is powerful and so riveting you can't take your eyes off him.‐ New York Observer

3/4 49% The Glass Castle (2017) Clocks in at two hours and seven minutes but it's so intense that I was hardly aware of the time.‐ New York Observer

2/4 90% Good Time (2017) The acting by a mostly amateur cast is over the top, the writing is genuinely ludicrous, and the characters so contrived that the movie defies even the most basic logic.‐ New York Observer

2/4 86% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Ingrid Goes West makes a few valid points. Too bad the whole thing looks more like a tweet than a movie.‐ New York Observer

100% It's Not Yet Dark (2017) We are watching the real deal-not a re-enactment with actors simulating life, but life itself.‐ New York Observer

3/4 36% Kidnap (2017) Berry knows how to seize the center spot and hold on tight. In Kidnap, she gets quite an exhausting workout, and so does the audience.‐ New York Observer

3.5/4 87% Wind River (2017) [Wind River] is one terrific, offbeat and heart-pounding thriller.‐ New York Observer

2/4 13% A Family Man (2017) Suffers from sentimental overload and a tidal wave of conscience-searching clichés.‐ New York Observer

2/4 57% Strange Weather (2017) Like so many women who unwisely spend too much time in gyms ruining their looks under the delusion of self-improvement, [Hunter's] muscles upstage her femininity. But the girl can still act.‐ New York Observer

1/4 5% The Last Face (2017) Characters are undeveloped, dialogue is platitudinous and insincere, and even the leading roles are one-dimensional.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
3/4 93% Dunkirk (2017) It's a gripping addition to the canon of war on film that is definitely worthy of attention, and some of the images are electrifying.‐ New York Observer

4/4 75% Wakefield (2017) Wakefield is a terrific movie, with a devastatingly bravura performance by Bryan Cranston that seizes and grips attention from first scene to last.‐ New York Observer

3/4 45% Paris Can Wait (Bonjour Anne) (2017) Sometimes beauty and charm are enough to turn a middling movie into pure ambrosia. Diane Lane has plenty of both ...‐ New York Observer

1/4 35% Snatched (2017) The most depressing Mother's Day present since Mommie Dearest, only not half as funny.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
3/4 31% 3 Generations (2017) 3 Generations is contrived, but the heartfelt performances keep the threadbare material on track-witty, warm and wise.‐ New York Observer

3/4 79% Chuck (2017) It's a routine story, worth seeing for the galvanizing (pulverizing?) star performance by a smashing Liev Schreiber in the title role.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
2/4 32% Voice from the Stone (2017) An Edgar Allen Poe ripoff that reminds all and sundry of too many old Technicolor crypt soirees from Hammer Films in the 1960s, but without the campy elements.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
3/4 91% Obit (2017) Do something memorable, and do it fast. Obit implies that the obituary page, like everything else, is fast becoming a dying art.‐ New York Observer

2.5/4 89% Norman (Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer) (2017) Mr. Gere saves the day, investing Norman with sad, quirky mannerisms and a variety of desperate character revelations that make him tragic and lovable at the same time.‐ New York Observer

3/4 87% The Lost City of Z (2017) A throwback to the good old days when adventure movies had riveting performances, gorgeous camerawork and the ability to tell stories that made sense, The Lost City of Z holds attention and keeps you fascinated.‐ New York Observer

2/4 70% Gifted (2017) A formulaic and manipulative tearjerker that is really nothing more than a woman's picture from a man's point of view.‐ New York Observer

4/4 88% Their Finest (2017) I was enchanted and overwhelmed by it and my prediction is that, if you care about filmmaking, you will be, too.‐ New York Observer

0/4 80% Colossal (2017) I'd like to tell you how rabid, illogical, far-fetched and stupid Colossal is, but words fail me at last.‐ New York Observer

2/4 65% Carrie Pilby (2017) What is the target audience for this particular brand of cotton candy? Teenage girls dreaming of first love while sipping cherry pop?‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2017
3/4 60% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) It doesn't burn through the conscience and haunt you forever like Schindler's List, but in spite of its laid-back reluctance to shock and horrify, it's never trivial or boring.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2017
0/4 73% The Blackcoat's Daughter (February) (2017) None of it makes one lick of sense and it quickly becomes clear that Mr. Perkins couldn't care less.‐ New York Observer

1/4 0% All Nighter (2017) Despite J.K. Simmons' gruff charm and inarguable charisma, the movie is so slight it vanishes without a trace faster than the dislocated Ginnie.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2017
3/4 47% Bokeh (2017) Beautiful and challenging, Bokeh has a pristine look and chilling feel of its own that contributes enormously to the mood and tone of the whole film.‐ New York Observer

3/4 67% Life (2017) If your craving for monsters from Mars needs immediate attention, Life passes the time painlessly.‐ New York Observer

0/4 43% Song to Song (2017) Another lethal boring and relentlessly inert load of self-indulgent twaddle cut from the same maddening bolt of existential cloth as the Texas-based writer-director's other pseudo box-office bombs ...‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2017
1/4 53% The Belko Experiment (2017) The unsatisfying result of all the berserk paranoia is predictable.Talk about a take-no-prisoners plot.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2017
3/4 81% Mean Dreams (2017) Not a great film in the same vein as Badlands and Pretty Poison, but a very good one that is well worth seeing.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2017
3.5/4 73% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) An exemplary work about the way we select and file our memories, conveniently editing what we choose to forget.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2017
3/4 67% This Beautiful Fantastic (2017) A charming, beautifully photographed modern fairy tale about love and gardening, This Beautiful Fantastic is worth seeing in spite of its dumb deterrent of a title.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2017
2/4 35% The Last Word (2017) Totally unconvincing, contrived, and phony as one of those reducing creams that promise to eliminate varicose veins but only give you hives.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2017
1/4 93% Logan (2017) Another expensive throwaway aimed at milking money out of people who still read comic books. Color it stupid.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2017
1/4 33% Lavender (2017) Boring, derivative, and infuriatingly illogical, Lavender is a ghost story with no thrills, no surprises, and no sense.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2017
3/4 92% From Nowhere (2017) As a film, it's uneven and clumsy, but as a responsible political statement about the chaos we live in now, it's both enlightening and troubling.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
4/4 89% Land of Mine (Under Sandet) (2017) It's a harrowing, sensitively realized study of cruelty, revenge and post-war retribution that ranks high among films about the cost of war and its continuing damage to humanity.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2017
3/4 83% A United Kingdom (2017) Asante resorts to a few corny clichés (spinning newspaper headlines to denote time, place and issues of the day), but she has a charming way with the actors and her leads are truly irresistible.‐ New York Observer

1/4 10% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Has even the target audience for this junk finally had enough?‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2017
2/4 45% Youth in Oregon (2017) The terrific cast is well worth watching, but everything else about this wayward movie mistake leaves you feeling just awful.‐ New York Observer

3/4 60% Sophie and the Rising Sun (2017) Warm, heartfelt but decidedly wan.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2017
2/4 76% The Daughter (2017) The Daughter offers a good but sadly wasted cast, obscured in the eye-rubbing mist of a foggy Down Under countryside and struggling to rise above the sludge of a basic soap opera with literary pretensions.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2017
3/4 84% The Founder (2017) One of the must-see entertainments of the year.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
1/4 74% Split (2017) This is a filmmaker with almost no real talent for coherence, originality or purpose and in spite of his insistence on audience secrecy, his overly contrived plots are easy to figure out before the beginning of the second reel.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
2/4 57% Trespass Against Us (2017) The movie, lamely directed by first-timer Adam Smith, drifts from campground to fistfight, without much purpose or impact. The accents, thick as cold porridge, just drift.‐ New York Observer

3/4 59% Alone in Berlin (2017) The splendid actors ... make up for the weaknesses with performances that radiate strength and integrity.‐ New York Observer
