Posted Aug 23, 2015
3/4 98% Phoenix (2015) "The sheer magnitude of what Nelly has experienced is evident and deeply felt in Nina Hoss' every sad glance and hesitant gesture. " ‐ amNewYork

Posted Aug 23, 2015
2/4 44% Irrational Man (2015) "A labored thought experiment masquerading as a motion picture entertainment. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Aug 20, 2015
3/4 85% Trainwreck (2015) "It's very funny and very smart, much like its creator. " ‐ amNewYork

3/4 52% Boulevard (2015) " It's a wonderful thing to see Robin Williams in full again, one of the generation's great actors transporting us into the depths of a wounded soul. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Aug 20, 2015
2.5/4 19% Self/less (2015) "The letdown comes in terms of a narrative that fails to uphold the initial promise, descending into a series of progressively sillier plot developments. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Aug 20, 2015
2.5/4 61% Southpaw (2015) "The filmmaker is a notable stylist, a skilled purveyor of urban excess, but his worst instincts kick in far too often. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Jul 24, 2015
3.5/4 89% Cartel Land (2015) "Cartel Land is essential viewing because it is enmeshed in the haze of reality, not the simplicity of fiction. There are no easy answers. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Jul 2, 2015
3/4 63% Magic Mike XXL (2015) "Few will attend this sequel for the cinematic touches. And that's fine. Hollywood has spent enough time objectifying women. Why not return the favor? " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Jul 2, 2015
2/4 25% Terminator Genisys (2015) "The ingenuity is long gone, but there isn't even enough left in the most basic sense to tell a story that is anything but a shallow imitation of its predecessors. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Jul 2, 2015

Posted Jul 2, 2015
3/4 82% The Overnight (2015) "Movies about sex should be messy and confusing, filled with human foibles, but too often they are utterly strait-laced. This one gets it right. " ‐ amNewYork

Posted Jul 2, 2015
3.5/4 82% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) "It's deeply moving, earning its tears through the authenticity of the emotional experiences depicted rather than by extracting them through sheer blunt force. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Jul 2, 2015
3/4 85% The Wolfpack (2015) "More than anything, The Wolfpack is a true New York City story, reminding us that the heart and soul of this metropolis can be found in the diverse journeys of those who call it home. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Jun 12, 2015

Posted Jun 6, 2015
2.5/4 83% Results (2015) "Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders are exceptionally likable actors, given a great opportunity here. They're so good, you wish there'd be more of them. That's the problem. " ‐ amNewYork

Posted Jun 6, 2015
4/4 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Avant-garde action cinema on an enormous scale that manages to be utterly original and suffused with a rebellion against patriarchy that is thrilling to watch in this form. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted May 14, 2015
2.5/4 85% The Seven Five (2015) "The movie is unavoidably swept up in the excitement and the dangers, but the question of why this story needed to be told is never answered. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted May 8, 2015

Posted May 8, 2015

Posted May 8, 2015
2/4 7% Hot Pursuit (2015) "It's an interesting conundrum, a mediocre movie whose existence should be celebrated. " ‐ amNewYork

Posted May 8, 2015
2.5/4 89% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) "There's a lot to recommend but the film is so in love with its form, so consumed by its abstract artifice, that it loses its grasp on the way people actually think and feel. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted May 8, 2015
3/4 93% Ex Machina (2015) "It's so engaged in the delicate psychology, in its observational mode, that the characters all feel like rats in a maze. Of course, that's the point. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted May 8, 2015

Posted Apr 6, 2015
2.5/4 84% While We're Young (2015) "Baumbach has a solid grasp of what it feels like to hit one of those life transition points but a far more tenuous sense of the hip milieu occupied by the younger characters. " ‐ amNewYork

3.5/4 78% Danny Collins (2015) "Danny Collins' internal crisis, his yearning to make up for the past, is palpably conveyed by the sadness Al Pacino applies behind the extroverted mask. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Mar 20, 2015
2/4 17% The Gunman (2015) "This is a stupid movie about a muscular superman beating and shooting the living hell out of all those who would cross him. It's not an apologia for continental destruction. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Mar 19, 2015
1.5/4 28% Insurgent (2015) "There's suspension of disbelief and then there's what the Divergent movies require, which is a total rejection of the most basic concepts of humanity. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Mar 19, 2015

Posted Mar 6, 2015
3/4 80% Deli Man (2015) "When deli man Ziggy Gruber says smelling the food makes him feel like his grandpa is standing there with him, you know what he means. " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Mar 6, 2015
2.5/4 32% Chappie (2015) "The film has a sly sense of humor and style to spare; the production design seamlessly integrates futuristic tropes and industrial decay. It just collapses in the third act. " ‐ amNewYork

3/4 96% '71 (2015) "It's a tense, introspective action movie, not the broad look at the geopolitical and on-the-ground realities that one might expect out of the sweeping title. And that's fine " ‐ amNewYork
Posted Mar 6, 2015

Posted Feb 25, 2015
3/4 80% McFarland USA (2015) "A fine family drama that's as much about shattering racial stereotypes and presenting a positive image of immigrant life as it is about Kevin Costner's coach. " ‐ amNewYork
