4/4 89% I, Tonya (2017) This remarkable movie-factual and funny, always surprising and unconventionally written, directed and acted-sets the record straight with an adrenalin rush that overwhelms the senses.‐ New York Observer

0/4 50% Bullet Head (2017) Malkovich has built a career mumbling his way through one disastrous movie after another, but this time he's got company.‐ New York Observer

3/4 32% Wonder Wheel (2017) I've often written that even on a bad day, Woody Allen is better than everybody else on Sunday. This is true again of Wonder Wheel.‐ New York Observer

4/4 98% Call Me by Your Name (2017) The direction by Luca Guadagnino is reminiscent of Bertolucci's sensitivity at its best, the fabulous cinematography by Sayombhu Mukdeeprom rapturously captures the rich work of art that is Italy in summer, and the actors are to die for.‐ New York Observer

2.5/4 86% Darkest Hour (2017) It is always Gary Oldman's phenomenal performance that keeps the film airborne.‐ New York Observer

0/4 48% Porto (2017) It's a typical example of the kind of empty, lunk-headed movies that are made these days by directors who think it's interesting to watch two people walking down the street carrying boxes.‐ New York Observer

2.5/4 93% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) I didn't like Three Billboards, but I respect McDonagh for taking his lewd, vulgar screwballs in directions without a compass and leaving viewers wondering where in the world the film will go next.‐ New York Observer

2/4 58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) While Branagh's revised version retains the basic elements, the mistakes he makes are numerous.‐ New York Observer

2/4 73% Last Flag Flying (2017) The best thing about Last Flag Flying is that Ethan Hawke is not in it. Otherwise, it's business as usual, and the business is excruciating to get through.‐ New York Observer

3/4 100% The Light of the Moon (2017) The movie is about choices, alternatives, and how one woman regains control and balance through patience, trust and courage.‐ New York Observer

3/4 54% LBJ (2017) Woody Harrelson in the title role has enough spice to keep the viewer alert and attentive.‐ New York Observer

3/4 76% Thank You for Your Service (2017) The sober, nuanced, and deeply affecting Thank You For Your Service covers old ground with a fresh take and finds something new to say about it at the same time.‐ New York Observer

0/4 8% The Snowman (2017) Not a single scene works as anything more than a total waste of good film.‐ New York Observer

2/4 29% Same Kind of Different As Me (2017) It's so sincere and admirable that it seems churlish to voice objections, but the fact remains that it isn't very good.‐ New York Observer

3/4 87% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) It's quite a story and a cinematic task writer-director Angela Robinson is not always up to. But I wasn't bored, and in this anemic year that's saying a mouthful.‐ New York Observer

3/4 65% Breathe (2017) Given the limitations of his role, I can't praise Andrew Garfield enough.‐ New York Observer

3/4 95% The Florida Project (2017) The impression is a disturbing film of energy and compassion that left me with an inescapable sadness, from which director Baker offers no way out.‐ New York Observer

1.5/4 41% The Mountain Between Us (2017) Labored and boring, The Mountain Between Us is a soap opera in the snow that fritters away the time and talents of Kate Winslet and Idris Elba for all the wrong reasons.‐ New York Observer

1/4 26% Literally, Right Before Aaron (2017) A trite little comedy so jumbled, disconnected and bad you can't believe it doesn't star James Franco.‐ New York Observer

3/4 98% Lucky (2017) Nothing big happens, but director John Carroll Lynch zeroes in on the undeniable pathos and hidden feelings in Mr. Stanton's map-lined face.‐ New York Observer

2.5/4 87% American Made (2017) Without realizing it, American Made is a wincing metaphor for Tom Cruise's movie career-which, come to think of it, is exclusively and embarrassingly American made, too.‐ New York Observer

3/4 42% Shot (2017) Wyle is so good as he goes through the stages of pain, rage, remorse and resignation that he keeps you caring and alert.‐ New York Observer

3/4 56% Last Rampage (2017) An unflinching centerpiece performance by the character actor Robert Patrick as the embittered Tison is so toxic you can't take your eyes off him, even when the watching gets tough.‐ New York Observer

3.5/4 94% Stronger (2017) I'm a sucker for these survival stories that show the best side of man's humanity, and Gyllenhaal makes this one a stronger achievement than most.‐ New York Observer

4/4 64% Victoria & Abdul (2017) Judi Dench can do no wrong, and playing Queen Victoria for the second time in the richly satisfying Victoria and Abdul is an acting lesson par excellence that proves how rapturous it is to watch this great artist do everything right.‐ New York Observer

3/4 86% Battle of the Sexes (2017) An exhilarating movie propelled by two mesmerizing star performances-Emma Stone and Steve Carell.‐ New York Observer

3.5/4 82% Brad's Status (2017) Stiller does this kind of self-conscious neurotic to perfection, but this time he is subtler than ever, achieving a nuance that is something of a first.‐ New York Observer

0/4 68% mother! (2017) I hesitate to label it the "Worst movie of the year" when "Worst movie of the century" fits it even better.‐ New York Observer

3/4 29% Rebel in the Rye (2017) You do see how Salinger's own words, thoughts and actions were reflected in the character of Holden. ‐ New York Observer

3/4 49% The Promise (2017) Terry George ... proved with Hotel Rwanda that he can tackle the wrenching subject of genocide with thrilling cinematic results. A wonderful cast adds no-fail polish.‐ New York Observer

3/4 10% Tulip Fever (2017) Under close analysis, none of this elaborate subterfuge makes much sense, but the film is so polished in its technical proficiency that I found the absence of logic forgivable.‐ New York Observer

0/4 0% The Layover (2017) If this is the kind of garbage kids are watching and absorbing with glee today, no wonder the country is in such a mess.‐ New York Observer

1/4 25% Unlocked (2017) When it mercifully ends after 98 excruciating minutes, you still don't have a clue what it was all about.‐ New York Observer

1/4 46% Bushwick (2017) The screenplay promises more excitement than it delivers, fails to develop characters beyond their most tertiary identities, and belly-flops even as political satire.‐ New York Observer

3/4 84% Beach Rats (2017) The saving grace-the thing that keeps you interested and caring-is Dickinson, the newcomer with phenomenal potential, so honest and self-assured I can't wait to see what he does next.‐ New York Observer

1/4 93% Logan Lucky (2017) Logan Lucky is as charming and welcome as toenail fungus.‐ New York Observer
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
3/4 89% 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 74% 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
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2017
2/4 91% 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 38% 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
