88% Jackie (2016) It's easy to recognize some of the shared elements between Jackie and Neruda. But it's still striking to see Larraín tackle such quintessentially American material (and with a largely different crew) and managing to hit the mark so cleanly once again.‐ Cinema Scope

90% Frantz (2017) Frantz deftly escapes the traps of its own limited premise by creating a mirror version of itself, like many of its own characters do.‐ Cinema Scope

100% The Age of Shadows (2016) A satisfying cloak-and-dagger thriller set in Japanese-occupied Korea during the 1920s, Kim Jee-woon's The Age of Shadows betrays a kind of business-like approach to spy games, institutional and otherwise.‐ Cinema Scope

B- 89% United States of Love (Estados Unidos de Amor) (2016) The film owes a lot to the four central performances, with Kijowska proving especially heartbreaking in her solitude.‐ The Film Stage

C 39% Brimstone (2017) The film gets into psycho-religious horror-trip mode and never lets go, obliterating any potential nuances or characterization work in the process. ‐ The Film Stage

B+ 88% The Childhood of a Leader (2016) There are shades of Haneke and Von Trier (Corbet worked with both as an actor) in its willingness to antagonize the viewer, as well as a fondness for the formalism of times past.‐ The Film Stage

B 85% Francofonia (2016) Of course, this being Sokurov, you can't let the film lull you into abstraction and relativism.‐ The Film Stage

B+ 96% The Look of Silence (2015) It only takes a few minutes to fully comprehend how The Look of Silence is complementing and expanding the subject, and why Oppenheimer is not letting this go. ‐ The Film Stage

B- 92% 99 Homes (2015) Sustained rhythm, urgent framing, and a perniciously overbearing score ensure this second venture into the darkness of a systemic failure will not be forgotten so quickly. ‐ The Film Stage

C- 49% Manglehorn (2015) The poetic and the naturalistic clash together, and it doesn't look like it was done on purpose.‐ The Film Stage

C+ 58% The Cut (2015) Its historical devils are never really front and center, and The Cut could, in fact, be described as the most hopeful genocide drama ever.‐ The Film Stage

C- 50% The Humbling (2015) A melancholic alternation of bitter and comedic sketches, all resolutely low-key and wildly uneven. ‐ The Film Stage

B+ 88% A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (2015) [A] constant tension between a confined space and the human oddity inside it fuels these vital, moving, and often simply laugh-out-loud creations.‐ The Film Stage

C 31% Cymbeline (2015) Almereyda is back at it fourteen years later with Cymbeline, a dramatically clunkier Shakespeare play, both in and of itself and for the challenges it presents to a modern adaptation.‐ The Film Stage

B 72% Pasolini (2014) It's an absorbing portrait, particularly compelling when relying on Pasolini's own words, which we hear verbatim through original letters and interviews.‐ The Film Stage

B- 86% Belye nochi pochtalona Alekseya Tryapitsyna (The Postman's White Nights) (2014) The Postman's White Nights keeps inserting moments of inspired visual poetry into its sturdy, meat-and-potatoes foundations.‐ The Film Stage

C+ 58% War on Everyone (2017) A noticeable step down from the highs of [his previous films], War on Everyone is still only McDonagh's third effort and nonetheless a bold, lively endeavor.‐ The Film Stage
