Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
52% Down a Dark Hall (2018) Ultimately, Down a Dark Hall falls victim to familiar teen horror tropes: a brooding lead with a heart of gold, predictable jump scares, wincingly bad romantic tension, and obvious villains.‐ Village Voice

83% Five Seasons: The Gardens Of Piet Oudolf (2018) Although it clocks in at just under 75 minutes, Piper's film is unrushed and chock-full of spark and life, much like the gardens Piper spotlights.‐ Village Voice

29% Modern Life Is Rubbish (2018) For those who delight in candy-coated nostalgia, writer Philip Gawthorne's familiar, cliché-heavy script offers a twee jaunt down memory lane. For everyone else, even a killer Britpop soundtrack...can't save the film from overtrodden territory.‐ Village Voice

100% Lives Well Lived (2018) Sky Bergman set out to collect wit, wisdom and life stories from people often called "elderly" or even "the old old" -- between the ages of 75 and 100. She presents her subjects as ordinary folk, but most are extraordinary in their own ways. ‐ Village Voice

No Score Yet Wanderland (2018) There's no rhyme or reason to Alex's journey, which makes the whole of it equally disarming and daffy.‐ Village Voice

74% Little Pink House (2018) Like Erin Brockovich for eminent domain, Little Pink House does well to explain the thorny legal issue at its center without getting bogged down in minutiae.‐ Village Voice

40% Shelter (2018) Such a grim story could collapse with less capable performers, but Riskin and Farahani deftly shoulder the burden as the haunted, paranoid spy and her disconsolate yet glamorous charge at the heart of this international scandal.‐ Village Voice

No Score Yet Dead On Arrival (2018) Writer-director Stephen C. Sepher's thriller is so convoluted that it's hard to care about its trail of dead bodies.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
17% Dear Dictator (2018) Although the filmmakers name-check and appear to draw inspiration from Mean Girls, they've missed the mark on truly biting satire, leaving Dear Dictator toothless and silly.‐ Village Voice

13% The Vanishing of Sidney Hall (2018) Christensen favors dreamy shots of dusty libraries and desert horizons that, while beautiful, don't make up for the contrived plot driving Sidney toward his destiny.‐ Village Voice

92% Most Beautiful Island (2017) At a lean eighty minutes, Most Beautiful Island has little extraneous material in it, and Asensio spins a suspenseful web that delivers a truly shocking - and strangely satisfying - revelation.‐ Village Voice

97% The Light of the Moon (2017) The frank ways in which Thompson and Beatriz channel Bonnie make it clear that there's a lot of respect for this complex character navigating life-altering trauma.‐ Village Voice

82% Tragedy Girls (2017) MacIntyre and Chris Lee Hill's screenplay is rife with absurdity, glorious carnage, jet-black humor - and best of all, a solid relationship at its core.‐ Village Voice

83% Monogamish (2017) Instead of finding one answer to his question, Ruspoli takes the film's title to heart, ending Monogamish on a big \_(ツ)_/.‐ Village Voice

65% Te Ata (2017) While Nathan Frankowski's biopic has the saccharine, deliberate feel of a Hallmark movie, that doesn't make the woman at its center any less inspirational. ‐ Village Voice

29% The Queen of Spain (La reina de España) (2017) The Queen may be a treat for those familiar with Dreams, but this uneven film glosses over too much - and runs too long.‐ Village Voice

74% Take Me To The River (2016) Impeccable performances propel River through both sluggish and torturous scenes; Parker is superb, a pint-sized talent who spars perfectly with Miller's confused, naive teen.‐ Village Voice
