Posted Oct 16, 2014
63% Life Inside Out (2014) "The earnest film's straightforwardness and down-to-earth characters have a gentle appeal, but its tendency to spell out every emotion and theme in on-the-nose dialogue undercuts its potential impact at nearly every turn. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Posted Sep 26, 2014
89% Born To Fly (2014) "Dance purists might dismiss Streb's work as circus gymnastics, but a bracing aesthetic is inseparable from the corporal shocks, as is an insistence on challenging accepted constraints. " ‐ Los Angeles Times

Posted Sep 18, 2014
100% A Picture of You (2014) "Nimbly avoiding the excesses of melodrama and the recessiveness of mumblecore, Chan and his likably low-key cast navigate hairpin turns from drama to comedy to outright farce with an impressive sense of proportion. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 11, 2014
64% The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them (2014) "What's conspicuously missing is any grasp of the lovers themselves. They suffer and yearn, dance in the moonlight and act out prettily, without benefit of recognizable inner lives. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Sep 11, 2014

Posted Sep 2, 2014
70% Jealousy (2014) "Conventional dramatic hooks have no place in Garrel's filmography, so it's not surprising that his new movie is more atmospheric than involving, or that the two beautiful bed heads at its center hardly invite emotional connection. " ‐ Los Angeles Times

Posted Aug 14, 2014
50% Fort McCoy (2014) "The period details are so lovingly burnished in this uneven, if heartfelt, feature that for a while they threaten to overpower the story, which delves gently into a rarely explored aspect of the war. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 14, 2014

Posted Aug 14, 2014
83% As It Is In Heaven (2014) "Never as tense and gripping as it should be, the incidents and most of the performances too tamped-down to spark a much-needed sense of animating friction. " ‐ Los Angeles Times

Posted Jul 31, 2014
80% Get On Up (2014) "It's that rare musician's biography with a deep feel for the music. And in Chadwick Boseman, it has a galvanic core, a performance that transcends impersonation and reverberates long after the screen goes dark. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 28, 2014
19% Very Good Girls (2014) "Despite a finely wrought lead performance by Dakota Fanning, the drama feels more like the stuff of a mild - and dated - YA novel than an involving exploration of female experience. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 24, 2014
20% Affluenza (2014) ""The Great Gatsby" Lite screenplay by Antonio Macia hasn't the sharpness of satire or the momentousness of an American tragedy, veering instead toward middling melodrama. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 17, 2014

Posted Jul 10, 2014
90% Siddharth (2014) "A film of subdued but mounting panic and grief - an unsentimental portrait of poverty in contemporary India and of a benighted man's efforts to understand the world beyond his workaday struggles. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 10, 2014

89% Elena (2014) "A type of cinematic performance art, with all the self-consciousness that suggests - a sibling love story that's no less heartfelt for being in the form of a first-person poem. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 12, 2014
31% Lullaby (2014) "This feature debut deals mainly in clichés, never transforming the tough question at its center into compelling cinema. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Posted Jun 9, 2014
75% Burt's Buzz (2014) "A certain hirsute fellow in an engineer's cap, the one whose enigmatic kisser graces the Burt's Bees logo, is, it turns out, the real deal. And he's more of a character than any marketing guru could invent. " ‐ Los Angeles Times

Posted Jun 5, 2014
88% The Discoverers (2014) "Dunne creates a full-blooded character. The film around him, unfortunately, takes low-key to the realm of tepid. " ‐ Los Angeles Times

97% We Are the Best! (2014) "If ever a movie earned the exclamation point in its title, it's Lukas Moodysson's "We Are the Best!" " ‐ Los Angeles Times
