50% Red Trees (2017) The sad truth is that we've heard countless harrowing stories of the Holocaust, and this one, for the most part, isn't presented in a way that makes it indelible or urgent.‐ Hollywood Reporter

50% Manolo, The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards (2017) As frustrating as The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards can be ... it makes quite clear that the man behind a revered international brand is an artist first and foremost. For his ardent admirers, that will probably be a perfect fit.‐ Hollywood Reporter

35% American Assassin (2017) Built for action, like its title character, the movie packs a muscular, bloody punch, but mainly it's a well-oiled diversion.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Don't Talk to Irene (2017) From first tentative rehearsals to road trip, you can see where the "let's put on a show" gumption is going. But the newly empowered teenage choreographer and her ragtag troupe ride their own giddy momentum.‐ Hollywood Reporter

7% Tulip Fever (2017) After a long, circuitous route to the screen, it arrives not as a lusty tale in full bloom, but as a tastefully arranged still life in search of an animating spark.‐ Hollywood Reporter

84% Polina (Polina, danser sa vie) (2017) Stubbornly uninvolving for long stretches, but it can also be stirringly cinematic.‐ Los Angeles Times

91% After Love (L'économie du couple) (2017) Messy and ungovernable at its strongest, Lafosse's film is a story of heartbreak and real estate and, not least, money, viewed from within the still-smoldering ruins.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2017
35% Leap! (2017) Though the mix of poppy power anthems and Tchaikovsky isn't seamless and the familiar plot points are less than transporting, there's a beating heart to this tween story to match its exuberant dance sequences.‐ Hollywood Reporter

90% RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World (2017) Inevitably cursory, it's nonetheless a fascinating introduction to the ways that core components of Americana wouldn't be eradicated. Or silenced.‐ Los Angeles Times

22% Liza, Liza, Skies Are Grey (2017) A meandering journey, too tepid to stir up the feelings of yearning and rebellion that it aims to evoke.‐ Hollywood Reporter

30% The Queen of Spain (La reina de España) (2017) Though "The Queen of Spain" looks terrific and features a warm, glamorous performance by Penélope Cruz, that promise is fulfilled only fitfully in this valentine to moviemaking.‐ Los Angeles Times

91% Gook (2017) Chon's drama is uneven but bristling with life, and it offers a new perspective on a calamitous moment, one whose 25th anniversary has been commemorated in recent months with a slew of potent documentaries.‐ Los Angeles Times

94% A Taxi Driver (2017) A richly imagined tribute to a working-class hero.‐ Hollywood Reporter

31% From the Land of the Moon (Mal de pierres) (2017) Garcia never gets a grasp on her protagonist's contradictions, or those of her story - certainly not enough to pull off the movie's jaw-dropper of a twist.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Birthright: A War Story (2017) At first the doc feels like a recap as argument, unlikely to galvanize anyone. But through its haunting firsthand accounts, it becomes a wake-up call for people on both sides of the argument.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Women Who Kill (2017) New-relationship anxiety escalates to dark suspicion -- or is it unhinged paranoia? -- in Ingrid Jungermann's nimble horror-tinged comedy Women Who Kill.‐ Hollywood Reporter

74% Landline (2017) Tonal swerves can be a source of useful friction; here they're simply awkward, and Robespierre's efforts to meld sentiment and laughs grow increasingly strained.‐ Los Angeles Times

19% False Confessions (Les fausses confidences) (2017) Despite a few playful flourishes, filmmaker Luc Bondy's experiment in artifice never takes flight.‐ Los Angeles Times

Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2017
100% Restless Creature: Wendy Whelan (2017) An intimate and engaging chronicle of her final months with the New York City Ballet.‐ Los Angeles Times

75% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
89% 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
Read More | Posted May 31, 2017
84% Megan Leavey (2017) Though it may hit a few predictable notes, its embrace of flawed and messy characters and refusal to repair every frayed emotional connection give it a dynamic, in-the-moment vigor.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 30, 2017
92% Wonder Woman (2017) This origin story, with its direct and relatively uncluttered trajectory, offers a welcome change of pace from a superhero realm that's often overloaded with interconnections and cross-references.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 29, 2017
No Score Yet 96 Souls (2017) Beginning with a sensitive glimpse at the human-animal bond and ending on a note of social idealism, 96 Souls gets lost in the middle with an overload of sci-fi-inflected incident and info.‐ Hollywood Reporter

73% Manifesto (2017) Whatever Rosefeldt intended, "Manifesto" doesn't quite set forth a manifesto of its own. But it's a blast of fresh air.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 25, 2017
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
