Posted Jan 24, 2017
2.5/5 88% A Ghost Story (2017) The interminable pace and crushing desolation will be enough to make anyone want to pass on to the afterlife. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 23, 2017
3.5/5 No Score Yet Newness (2017) The most sexually charged film he's made yet, Doremus shoots it with energy to match, delivering intimacy while suggesting voyeurism. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 23, 2017
4/5 77% Wind River (2017) The rhythm between violence and cultural reflection is where Sheridan continues to make his mark ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 23, 2017
4/5 92% Mudbound (2017) With Mudbound, Rees shows she has full command of the dramatic strength of such serious content, and how it relates to our world today. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 23, 2017
4/5 100% The Big Sick (2017) It's all at once a movie about overcoming disease, a story about cultural assimilation, a movie about stand-up comedians, a coming of age tale, and a rom-com. On the surface it shouldn't work at all. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 21, 2017
3/5 69% Landline (2017) Robespierre has done something that has become increasingly rare lately, and that's make a family comedy with characters that actually seem like a family. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 21, 2017
2/5 43% Person to Person (2017) Too bad it doesn't feature very many persons of interest. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 20, 2017
4/5 76% Colossal (2017) Colossal overcomes its seemingly impenetrable premise to deliver a terrifically cathartic study of human frailty...and yeah, it's a pretty bad ass monster flick, too. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 20, 2017
3.5/5 100% The Incredible Jessica James (2017) While Strouse does occasionally wade into treacly rom-com territory, Williams and O'Dowd's emotionally raw performances always keep the film grounded where it belongs. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 20, 2017
2.5/5 82% The Founder (2017) You may find your McDonald's burger distasteful for a whole new reason after watching The Founder. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 20, 2017
3.5/5 91% I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore (2017) I don't know if anybody can make somberness funny the way Lynskey does, but once again she has found a way to make a sad sack character somebody to be loved. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 20, 2017
3/5 83% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) If 2006's An Inconvenient Truth was Al Gore's call to arms, An Inconvenient Sequel is a silent scream into the void. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 19, 2017
2.5/5 17% The Crash (Jekyll Island) (2017) Let's just say that Ron Paul supporters will probably embrace The Crash and the theories it comes up with. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

Posted Jan 13, 2017
3/5 34% Live By Night (2017) Affleck's Live by Night isn't a bad gangster film by any means, it's just overstuffed with egregious flourishes and familiar recalls to just about every mobster movie you've ever seen. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Posted Jan 10, 2017
3/5 17% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) And while the storylines may not be offering much that's new, fans of the stylized action will find the violence worth sinking their teeth into. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

4/5 86% A Monster Calls (2017) The strength of this beautiful and yes painful film is how it uses grim fantasy to teach that sometimes it's okay to let the monster in all of us out. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

Posted Nov 21, 2016
3.5/5 96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) The meat of the plot is simple, but Lonergan adds layer on top of layer, adding great emotional complexity to this Shakespearean tragedy about grief and reconciliation with the past. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
