51% Ismael's Ghosts (Les fantômes d'Ismaël) (2018) Arnaud Desplechin's frenetic follow-up to the ethereal and sensitive coming-of-age romance My Golden Days (2015) represents as much a deliberate revival of the idiosyncratic French auteur's cinematic obsessions as a liberating move away from them. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

70% Happy End (2017) A potent director's inevitable self-pastiche, Happy End suffers from the absence of Haneke's usual quest for humanity within perversion.‐ Film Comment Magazine

94% Glory (2017) Directing duo Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov's witty and ingeniously crafted follow-up to The Lesson (2014) is a snapshot of a contemporary Bulgaria plagued by injustice and corruption.‐ Film Comment Magazine

93% The Son of Joseph (Le fils de Joseph) (2017) But it is precisely the clarity of expression achieved through simplification that makes for the mystifying beauty of Green's film. His approach to composition and staging, deeply informed by Baroque art, rests on a clash between harmony and movement‐ Film Comment Magazine

97% Aquarius (2016) Achieving an uncanny blend of fragile serenity and ferocious intensity, Braga embodies a woman of all seasons: a poised and affectionate grandmother as much as she is a ruthless and sultry warrior.‐ Film Comment Magazine

78% The Apostate (El Apóstata) (2016) Working within a tradition of heightened, impressionistic satire, Veiroj demonstrates a rare aptitude for depicting his distraught protagonist's emotional world.‐ Film Comment Magazine

91% Summertime (La Belle Saison) (2016) The juxtaposition of pulsating Paris with the static and reactionary countryside yields a compelling metaphor for Delphine's moral conundrum...What's frustrating about Summertime is its sometimes overly didactic tone.‐ Film Comment Magazine

74% Louder Than Bombs (2016) There is beauty to be found in this solemn tribute, but such dignified souls deserve deeper exploration.‐ Film Comment Magazine

87% The Lobster (2016) In this half-mythical, half-surrealistic portrait of an innocent Everyman's confrontation with a cold-blooded system, Lanthimos achieves a level of audience identification that his previous films had failed to bring about. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

87% The Club (El Club) (2016) In a film permeated by a sense of doom, Larraín's expressionistic use of lens distortion entraps the characters, suggesting that there is no place to hide when the truth erupts like vomit.‐ Film Comment Magazine

4/5 97% Mustang (2015) Ergüven films their blossoming bodies with the same unyielding energy and liberates her narrative-a skillful blend of tragedy and fable-from genre constraints, crafting her own brand of magical realism instead.‐ Film Comment Magazine

92% Breathe (2015) [A]s the two friends' relationship begins to deteriorate, Laurent's carefully weighed naturalism awkwardly takes on the trappings of a horror film.‐ Film Comment Magazine

No Score Yet N-Capace (2015) At any rate, N-Capace is not a danse macabre; on the contrary, it embodies more of a celebratory spirit.‐ Film Comment Magazine
