0% November Criminals (2017) The starry chemistry of leads Ansel Elgort and Chloë Grace Moretz injects a modicum of energy into the coming-of-age drama, whose elements of romance, crime and smart-kid angst never coalesce.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Drawing Home (2017) Director Markus Rupprecht and his cowriter, Donna Logan, never get beyond the handsome period surface to an involving emotional core.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
77% Voyeur (2017) In that discomfortingly close range between the unlikeliest of friends, and between rapture and repulsion, the film finds its compelling edge.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Cuba And The Cameraman (2017) But it's the salt-of-the-earth Borregos, a trio of farmer brothers and their sister, who give the film its most involving through-line, and its heart.‐ Los Angeles Times

Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2017
100% Soufra (2017) Soufra's lasting impression is one of empowerment and the energizing sense of purpose and community that the women derive from the enterprise along with their incomes.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet A German Life (2017) We all like to imagine ourselves as brave resisters. Pomsel's unapologetic account of being "one of the cowards" is a haunting, ever-timely reminder of how easy it can be to cash the paycheck and look the other way.‐ Los Angeles Times

No Score Yet Wanderland (2017) Writer-director Josh Klausner set out to make "a film with a live soundtrack" rather than a conventional musical, and the results have an unforced, DIY charm.‐ Hollywood Reporter

93% Spielberg (2017) Insightful and surprisingly intimate.‐ Hollywood Reporter

92% Chavela (2017) Throughout Chavela, onscreen translations of lyrics accompany concert clips. A literal understanding of the songs is hardly necessary, though. The emotion in the performance says everything we need to know.‐ Los Angeles Times

92% Barracuda (2017) Beneath its quiet surface, the Austin, Texas-set drama "Barracuda" thrums with menace and mystery from first moment to last.‐ Los Angeles Times

82% Loving Vincent (2017) Animating Van Gogh's bold impasto, already kinetic on the canvas, could have been merely superfluous. As moving pictures, though, the brushstrokes have an unexpected pull in this uneven but deeply felt homage.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
No Score Yet Indivisible (2017) Neapolitan crime lurks at the story's edges, and the grotty coastal setting is captured to spellbinding effect in the limpid grays of dusk and dawn.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
