2.5/4 78% My Blind Brother (2016) "The best material gives the excellent Scott and Kroll plenty of love-hate energy: Robbie's condescension, Bill's passive-aggressiveness. It will look all too familiar to anyone who isn't an only child. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Sep 22, 2016
3/4 87% Other People (2016) "A number of Kelly's scenes play out like stand-alone sketches - some quite funny; not all of them essential - rather than parts of a whole. But that's easily forgiven considering the candor of his insights and his strong cast. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Sep 8, 2016
2.5/4 67% Brother Nature (2016) ""Brother Nature" ... enjoys moments of deep-end mania from Killam and Moynihan. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Sep 8, 2016
3/4 85% The People vs. Fritz Bauer (Der Staat Gegen Fritz Bauer) (2016) "Kraume brings muted colors and a claustrophobic, urgent energy to the procedural part of this story, while reminding us that not every moral hero looks like Captain America - in fact, like Bauer, they can be a rumpled, misanthropic mess. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Sep 1, 2016
3/4 100% Tunnel (Teoneol) (2016) "[There's] a lot to juggle, and Kim handles it effectively while delivering, bottom line, a harrowing spectacle that makes one forget to breathe. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Aug 25, 2016
2.5/4 40% Operation Chromite (2016) "Exciting if occasionally awkward ... " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Aug 11, 2016
0.5/4 4% Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party (2016) "D'Souza manipulates viewers' passions while telling them who to blame for their bile. " ‐ Seattle Times

3/4 No Score Yet Neil Gaiman: Dream Dangerously "Warmly revealing ... " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jul 7, 2016
3/4 75% Buddymoon (2016) "Everyone should have a friend like Flula (Flula Borg), a ridiculously optimistic German musician hiking with his American friend David (David Giuntoli) through the wilds of Oregon in the frequently funny "Buddymoon." " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jun 30, 2016
2/4 19% The Duel (2016) "Despite promising elements of mixed-genre thrills, the film is finally the underwhelming sum of too many plot devices. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jun 23, 2016
3/4 100% T-Rex (2016) ""T-Rex" is ultimately about a remarkable (and likable) young person finding her personal power despite pressure from all sides. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jun 2, 2016
1.5/4 35% Manhattan Night (Manhattan Nocturne) (2016) "A thriller wholly lacking in surprises, or thrills. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted May 19, 2016
3/4 No Score Yet Phantom Detective "The South Korean suspense drama is both ideal popcorn movie and morally complex revenge tale. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted May 19, 2016
3/4 60% Dough (2016) "Though Dough is often in danger of running off the rails with improbable and unnecessary plot twists, it is always essentially entertaining and warm in its observations of hope rekindled through simple relationships. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Apr 29, 2016
2.5/4 55% Pali Road (2016) "The lack of a strong inner conflict or neurosis for Lily ... makes the resolution of "Pali Road" prosaic, a lost opportunity. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Apr 29, 2016
3/4 19% The Adderall Diaries (2016) "Writer-director Pamela Romanowsky, in her first feature, captures both fireworks and tragedy in go-for-broke scenes between Franco and Harris. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Apr 14, 2016
2.5/4 72% Baskin (2016) "A torture-gore blowout that rises above pure nausea with an intriguing blur of possible realities. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Mar 31, 2016
4/4 89% Fastball (2016) "Filmmaker Jonathan Hock goes beyond anecdotes to the larger role of the fastball in baseball, the way the game changed when the pursuit of velocities exceeding a batter's reaction time became a Holy Grail. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Mar 24, 2016
2.5/4 97% Krisha (2016) "For all its strengths, "Krisha" can also be self-indulgent and artificial. " ‐ Seattle Times

2.5/4 67% Theory of Obscurity: A Film About the Residents (2016) "We hear statements of admiration for the band from such longtime fans as Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller) and "The Simpsons" creator Matt Groening.

Posted Feb 25, 2016
3/4 78% Already Tomorrow In Hong Kong (2016) ""Already Tomorrow" is about ambivalence, not gratification, and is more interesting for it. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Feb 11, 2016
1.5/4 8% Misconduct (2016) "The only mystery here is what drew Hopkins and Pacino to this tedious project. " ‐ Seattle Times

Posted Nov 19, 2015
2/4 64% The Funhouse Massacre (2015) "The problem is that "The Funhouse Massacre" isn't particularly funny or scary, and if there is supposed to be an element of satire about our contemporary inability to sort out what's real from what's not, well, that falls flat, too. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Nov 12, 2015
2.5/4 26% Heist (2015) "Caught between genre potboiler and would-be human drama, "Heist" doesn't have a mark to hit. But it leaves some good impressions. " ‐ Seattle Times

3/4 61% Extraordinary Tales (2015) "Just in time for Halloween comes this singular tribute to Edgar Allan Poe from veteran animator Raul Garcia. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Oct 22, 2015
3/4 100% Stray Dog (2015) "It would be easy to say Granik offers a portrait of redneck life in "Stray Dog," but even allowing for Hill's guns and skepticism about government, it's clear such an oversimplified cultural cliché can't begin to describe the reality here. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Oct 22, 2015
3/4 No Score Yet Thao's Library "A touching documentary about two individuals from different corners of the world finding a common cause and a chance to heal from life's crueler blows. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Oct 15, 2015
3.5/4 71% The Final Girls (2015) "Clever, creative and emotionally satisfying, "The Final Girls" is a horror-comedy and popcorn movie that keeps its original premise fresh all the way to a delightful, surprise ending. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Oct 8, 2015
3/4 92% In My Father's House (2015) "What's powerful and interesting about "In My Father's House" is the way so much goodwill and urging are tested in Che's personal life. " ‐ Seattle Times
