No Score Yet Mommy Dead and Dearest (2017) Digging beneath the headlines of the high-profile matricide, which turned out to involve one of the most horrific examples of Munchausen syndrome by proxy ever documented, Carr's film poses as many provocative questions as it answers.‐ Hollywood Reporter

21% The Ottoman Lieutenant (2017) The by-the-numbers story never achieves its aimed-for grandeur or intensity, and the striking Turkish locations prove far more interesting than the characters.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
21% The Shack (2017) However universal the perennial questions and struggles that The Shack illuminates, under Stuart Hazeldine's plodding direction, its faith-based brand of self-help feels like being trapped in someone else's spiritual retreat - in real time.‐ Hollywood Reporter

10% Bitter Harvest (2017) Given the scope of the early-1930s atrocity, the most shocking thing about director George Mendeluk's new dramatization is how utterly devoid of emotional impact it is.‐ Los Angeles Times

75% You're Killing Me Susana (Me estás matando Susana) (2017) Sneider's underpowered feature looks at romance and machismo through a cross-cultural lens, its comments sometimes insightful, but most of the time frustratingly muted.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2017
92% Logan (2017) Seamlessly melding Marvel mythology with Western mythology, James Mangold has crafted an affectingly stripped-down standalone feature, one that draws its strength from Hugh Jackman's nuanced turn as a reluctant, all but dissipated hero.‐ Hollywood Reporter

67% American Fable (2017) Hamilton establishes a realistic sense of place and a horror-tinged atmosphere with impressive skill. Her artistry announces a cinematic talent. It also compounds the disappointment when her screenplay doesn't quite hold together.‐ Los Angeles Times

56% Sophie and the Rising Sun (2017) There's a clumsy, soapy tepidness to the procession of plot points, but within individual scenes, the actors pierce the genteel surface.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
80% The New Radical (2017) Locating the common ground between pro-gun activism and anti-big-bank subversion, The New Radical is as complex as it is discomforting.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
80% Band Aid (2017) An exuberantly low-key charmer that uses a light, wry touch to tackle such weighty matters as artistic drive and inertia and the male-female divide, while offering new fuel for drummer jokes.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2017

Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2017
46% Detour (2017) Even with three of the big screen's most dynamic up-and-comers at its center, there's no flesh and blood beneath all the posturing.‐ Hollywood Reporter

71% Reset (Relève: Histoire d'une création) (2017) As they recount "the story of a world premiere," filmmakers Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai take the viewer from first steps to exultant gala performance - in essence, from the prosaic to the transcendent.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2017
41% 100 Streets (2017) Though there's clearly a compassionate impulse behind Leon F. Butler's class-conscious screenplay, it rapidly devolves into implausible melodrama.‐ Hollywood Reporter

Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2016
56% The Legend of Ben Hall (2016) Holmes' unfocused screenplay makes clear that his subject was an honorable thief (Hall never took a life), but the writer-director never makes any of it matter.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 17, 2016
80% Dying Laughing (2017) Though the engaging documentary treads through unavoidably familiar territory ... its chorus of testifiers often find sharp new angles of approach. Like the jokes they hone, many of their insights arrive with the impact of well-crafted punchlines. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2016
31% Passengers (2016) Given the imaginative setup and the material's provocative questions about mortality - not to mention the future of humankind - the movie's neat lessons about the nature of happiness and a life well lived feel too easy, too obvious.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2016
36% A Kind of Murder (2016) The story remains an academic argument, struggling to pierce the handsome surface.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2016

41% Office Christmas Party (2016) With all the sharp comic timing on hand, this party should feel lighter, swifter, more agile.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2016
0% Anonymous (Hacker) (2016) Uninvolving from start to finish, the would-be thriller Anonymous traffics in a certain bland slickness, placing it squarely in the international crime subset of generic action features.‐ Hollywood Reporter
