3/4 49% Hardcore Henry (2016) [Naishuller's] debut feature is a landmark of sorts, and a potent omen in this year of mass-marketed virtual reality. ‐ New York Observer
Posted Apr 7, 2016
97% Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016) A dazzlingly elegaic reverie about the ravages of colonialism on Amazonian tribes ... ‐ New York Observer
Posted Feb 19, 2016
98% The Hurt Locker (2009) What the soldiers are really wrestling are not people but explosives; it's the literal dehumanization of the enemy. And ironically enough, it's that encounter that makes certain people never feel more alive. ‐ Esquire Magazine
Posted Feb 25, 2015
94% Best Of Enemies (2015) [A] delightful account of the infamous televised debates between liberal firebrand Gore Vidal and conservative gadfly William F. Buckley, Jr., during the 1968 Republican and Democratic Conventions. ‐ New York Observer
Posted Feb 17, 2015
92% Slumdog Millionaire (2008) Those who suspend their disbelief will have a delightful time swallowing such unlikely coincidences, and the skeptics who remain will find it increasingly hard to resist the movie's Dickensian charms. ‐ Esquire Magazine
Posted Jan 27, 2014
2/5 68% Haute Cuisine (2013) Those with a yen for food porn (especially truffle fetishists) will feast. All others may want to order something else off the menu. ‐ Time Out
Posted Sep 17, 2013
3/5 50% A Single Shot (2013) Despite its byzantine narrative, the film remains never less than absorbing, as the walls slowly close in on this good-hearted but ultimately flawed protagonist. ‐ Time Out
Posted Sep 17, 2013
4/5 No Score Yet Max and the Junkmen (2012) The deep cynicism would be depressing if it weren't so riveting. ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 7, 2012
3/5 76% Unforgivable (2012) All are wounded souls, and all try their best, even if their acts are less than virtuous. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 26, 2012
2/5 89% The Harder They Come (1973) Atrocious acting, amateurish camerawork and a hackneyed story line all make for one painful slog. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 5, 2012
5/5 98% All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) The despair-and the artistry-is breathtaking. ‐ Time Out
Posted May 22, 2012
5/5 97% La Grande illusion (Grand Illusion) (1938) Funny, heart-wrenching, nail-biting, caustic and profound, touting the futility of armed combat while turning imprisonment and escape into a microcosm for society's aspirations and contradictions. ‐ Time Out
Posted May 8, 2012
3/5 86% Chico & Rita (2012) An animated film that could actually open up audiences to the world, instead of giving them an escape from it. ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 7, 2012
2/5 80% Young Adult (2011) While one might be tempted to call it mature, that word suggests a capacity for self-evaluation and unsentimental levity. ‐ Time Out

2/5 62% Arctic Tale (2007) This anthropomorphic Disneyfication -- presumably intended to give youngsters something to relate to -- is made worse by the film's elementary dialogue and Queen Latifah's crass 'n' brash delivery. ‐ Time Out
