No Score Yet As Good As You (2017) Heisler brings the required neediness to the role, but the key problem with this sometimes whip-smart, sometimes mushy feature is that Jo and her story are far less interesting than some of the people around her.‐ Los Angeles Times

76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) There's enough dark sizzle between leads Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin to keep the audience involved through the underpowered middle stretches before the film regains its footing, delivering a disquieting shiver of a conclusion.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2017
No Score Yet From the Ashes (2017) There's nothing particularly cinematic about the well-crafted film, but it's a compelling piece of advocacy journalism, one that looks beyond the sloganeering on all sides of the debate.‐ Los Angeles Times

88% It Comes At Night (2017) The film confirms that Shults, working again with DP Drew Daniels, has a sure and fluent grasp of cinematic storytelling, his stripped-down narrative pulsing with dread and emotion.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of The Grateful Dead (2017) In some ways the film is guilty of the kind of worship that made Garcia uneasy, but Bar-Lev's emotional connection to his subject is also an animating force.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Harold And Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story (2017) With "Harold and Lillian," Raim gives these perfectly matched behind-the-scenes stars the spotlight they've long deserved.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
50% The Drowning (2017) Despite the wildly uneven plotting, Gordon's atmospheric direction in coastal New London propels the drama, as does her sensitivity to what remains unspoken between people.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
86% Tomorrow Ever After (2017) A gently comic, conversation-starting charmer that wears its low-budget heart on its sleeve.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
62% Slack Bay (Ma loute) (2017) Though the combination of social critique and unhinged laughs doesn't always jell, the movie is quite gloriously a thing unto itself, even as it draws upon obvious inspirations.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2017
32% Voice from the Stone (2017) A ghost story without a pulse or a perceptible purpose, "Voice From the Stone" strands its cast, led by "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke, in an airless series of darkly lovely tableaux.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2017
26% Unforgettable (2017) Di Novi steadily turns up the heat on a lethal bouillabaisse of sex, domesticity and juicy archetypes - a recipe that's equal parts Fatal Attraction, Charles Perrault and Nancy Meyers.‐ Hollywood Reporter
