71% The Idol (Ya Tayr El Tayer) (2016) "Assaf's 2013 Arab Idol victory occurred around the time the campaign in this week's Weiner began, and both are recent period pieces about how the media can influence politics, for good and ill. The Idol ends on a far more hopeful note, to put it mildly. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 26, 2016
88% A Monster With A Thousand Heads (Un Monstruo de Mil Cabezas) (2016) "If A Monster with a Thousand Heads never quite finds a release for the tension and anger it builds up, that may also be the point. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 26, 2016
96% Almost Holy (Crocodile Gennadiy) (2016) "Steve Hoover's documentary Almost Holy is a chilling look at just how not-good things got (and remained) in Ukraine after the Soviet Union collapsed. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 26, 2016
79% Sunset Song (2016) "Unfortunately, Agyness Deyn's acting chops aren't quite up to the task of carrying Sunset Song. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 26, 2016
94% Weiner (2016) "The timing of Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg's you-are-there documentary Weiner couldn't be better. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 26, 2016
25% Welcome To Happiness (2016) "The three main female characters are little more than caricatures (sexy girlfriend, shrewish authority figure, and flouncy eye candy) who only relate to the men, and the film's final 20 seconds are undeserved at best. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 19, 2016
95% Dark Horse (2016) "The unquestionably uplifting Dark Horse is halfway to being a narrative film as it is, re-creating many scenes both profoundly emotional and deeply silly. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 12, 2016
100% Kill Zone 2 (Saat po long 2) (2016) "Unlike certain recent Hong Kong movies that got bogged down in moralizing... Kill Zone 2 delivers the goods in this post-Raid environment. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 12, 2016
62% High-Rise (2016) "One of the two very smart things that the film does is to keep the original 1975 setting, as the story would have been altered far too much to be set in the digital age. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 12, 2016
82% Viva (2016) "Viva doesn't say anything new, but what it says isn't bad, either. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 5, 2016
50% Phantom of the Theatre (2016) "Phantom of the Theatre is still a fast-paced and agreeably silly horror movie and showbiz satire for the most part, even if it pulls its punches at the end. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 5, 2016
92% Neon Bull (Boi Neon) (2016) "Bull is David Cronenberg's Crash set in the world of Brazilian rodeo - not just in the way that both the bipeds and the cattle live in cramped conditions, but also the sheer amount of sex and nudity that occur in very close proximity to the animals. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 5, 2016
100% Dragon Inn (Long men ke zhen) "If the story is familiar, it's only because it's been used in centuries of Chinese fiction beforehand and countless movies since. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 5, 2016
30% Love Thy Nature (2016) "The woo about Gaia and such makes even the occasional hard science sound suspect, and questionable statements like people going to parks after 9/11 as proof of the healing power of nature don't help. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted May 3, 2016
66% Dough (2016) "Jonathan Pryce is always great, but Jerome Holder is a real find, displaying a charisma reminiscent of the similarly unknown John Boyega in Attack the Block. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 27, 2016
88% Francofonia (2016) "What's most impressive is the access Sokurov and his camera got to the great works of the Louvre, thus allowing a closer look than we're ever likely to get in person. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 27, 2016
73% Valley Of Love (2016) "Exactly what Valley of Love is setting out to accomplish is unclear, but anything that gets Isabelle Huppert back on American screens is a good thing. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 27, 2016
55% Pali Road (2016) "Damn if Jonathan Hua Lang Lim's Pali Road isn't hardcore Lifetime material. That's a compliment, because those can be good, pulpy fun. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 27, 2016
68% Louder Than Bombs (2016) "A moody and riveting study of loss. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 20, 2016
76% Elvis & Nixon (2016) "Much like its underserved title characters, the picture never fulfills its potential. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 20, 2016
88% My Big Night (Mi Gran Noche) (2016) "Many references in My Big Night will likely fly over the heads of those not conversant in Spanish pop culture, such as the unknown-to-Americans superstar Raphael riffing on his own image, but it's goofy fun regardless. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 20, 2016
100% The Winding Stream (2015) "Beth Harrington's lovely documentary The Winding Stream traces the history of the original Carter Family singers -- Maybelle Carter, her cousin Sara, and Sara's husband A.P.-- and their influence on American music. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 20, 2016
56% Sold (2016) "Brown makes it clear that what happened to Lakshmi is not her fault - and more importantly, she's never passive, taking her fate into her own hands. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 14, 2016
92% A Space Program (2016) "The picture follows both the development of the project as well as the audience as they were guided through it, and it's significant it was an event meant to be enjoyed by the general public, and not just wasted on Burners. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 14, 2016
81% Standing Tall (La Tête Haute) (2016) "As French-language films about efforts to rehabilitate violent yet hunky blonde juvenile delinquents go, Emmanuelle Bercot's muddled Standing Tall is at least less irritating and fetishistic than Xavier Dolan's Mommy. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 14, 2016
100% Fireworks Wednesday (Chaharshanbe-soori) (2016) "Gotta hand it to Asghar Farhadi: When he promises fireworks in the title of Fireworks Wednesday, he delivers, both literally and figuratively. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 14, 2016
79% The First Monday in May (2016) "Call it superficial, but I call it irrefutable: Life is a runway, and Andrew Rossi's documentary The FirstMonday in Maymakes a strong case for fashion - that oft-demonized form of expression - as an art form. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 14, 2016
91% My Golden Days (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeunesse) (2016) "Ye gods, do French directors love filming nude and nubile young women, even if their characters don't care about what's under the flesh. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 6, 2016
83% Sweet Bean (An) (2016) "The meditative Sweet Bean is veteran director Kawase's first film to receive domestic theatrical distribution -- probably because arthouse audiences love them some food porn -- and the real eye candy is the many close-ups of simmering beans. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 6, 2016
72% Miles Ahead (2016) "Cheadle is a delight to watch, and by and large, Miles Ahead can be described as his Miles Davis fan fiction. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Apr 6, 2016
No Score Yet Temps (2016) "The film's tone is all over the map, with weird bursts of casual racism toward its ethnic supporting cast and unnecessarily explicit sex scenes that approach a The Room level of ickiness. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 5, 2016
70% Take Me To The River (2016) "Take Me to the River is Picnic at Hanging Rock-level cagey about its central mysteries, and while many of its characters know what happened off-screen in both the recent and distant past, they ain't sharing the details with us, just their pain. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 31, 2016
95% Marguerite (2016) "Xavier Giannoli's 127-minute comedy Marguerite would have worked like gangbusters at a zippy 90 minutes, but it's a pleasant enough comedy-of-manners for most of its running time. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 31, 2016
21% I Saw the Light (2016) "I Saw the Light is pretty, slick, and empty -- three words that don't describe its subject. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 31, 2016
59% Eisenstein In Guanajuato (2016) "It's clearly artificial, but it generates an emotional response. Sergei Eisenstein himself would have approved. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 23, 2016
90% City Of Gold (2016) "City of Gold isn't quite as mouth-watering as other recent foodie documentaries such as The Search for General Tso or Deli Man, which may speak more to this writer's own palate than anything else. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 23, 2016
96% Krisha (2016) "Shults does indeed display some giftedness on a visual level, keeping his limited locations interesting with numerous camera tricks and movements. But as calling cards go, Krisha should have remained a short. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 23, 2016
98% April and the Extraordinary World (Avril et le monde truqué) (2016) "An all-too-rare example of steampunk done right - which also acknowledges that, however pretty such industrial imagery might seem from afar, actually living in such a world would be kind of horrible. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 22, 2016
63% Creative Control (2016) "Creative Control is shot in glorious black-and-white, which always makes New York look better and also complements the vector-graphic aesthetic of the glasses nicely. But the film's most important innovation is the use of Reggie Watts. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 18, 2016
100% Here Come the Videofreex (2016) "A touching remembrance of people using technology to do the right thing. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 17, 2016
100% Trapped (2016) "Dawn Porter's Trapped is a sobering look at the impact of anti-abortion legislation in the South. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 17, 2016
46% Knight of Cups (2016) "Knight of Cups is Malick at his most Malick-y, and it's OK if that's not your thing. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 10, 2016
86% Mountains May Depart (Shan he gu ren) (2016) "Jia Zhangke's Mountains May Depart is one of those bighearted melodramas that mainland China does so well. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 10, 2016
0% A Haunting In Cawdor (2016) "There's potential for a fun horror movie with Phil Wurtzel's A Haunting in Cawdor, but the end result is as uninspired as its title. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 10, 2016
50% Bleak Street (La calle de la amargura) (2016) "Arturo Ripstein's Bleak Street lives up to its name, being a beautifully shot but ultimately unsatisfying exercise in miserablism. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 10, 2016
91% Requiem For The American Dream (2016) "Requiem for the American Dream is valuable as a document of Chomsky while we still have him, but the people he's inspired may be his true legacy. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 3, 2016
84% The Incident (El Incidente) (2014) "The Incident commits to its premise, stranding its characters in their personal hells for 35 years, going deep into the minutiae of how they survive and what it does to their bodies and their brains. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 3, 2016
79% The Wave (Bolgen) (2016) "The Wave wants only to be big, dumb, Hollywood-style entertainment. On that level, it succeeds - even if a disaster movie cliché drinking game would lead to alcohol poisoning. (You have been warned.) " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 3, 2016
98% Zootopia (2016) "In addition to being a crowd-pleasing Disney cartoon, Byron Howard and Rich Moore's Zootopia works as both a nifty detective story and a parable on institutionalized racism. " ‐ SF Weekly
Posted Mar 3, 2016
86% The Boy And The Beast (Bakemono No Ko) (2016) "The Boy and the Beast works with many common anime tropes but doesn't find anything new to say about them. " ‐ Village Voice
