Latest Reviews


The Changeover

The Changeover might have an unnerving and memorable performance by English actor Timothy Spall, but it lacks the narrative horror chops to push the storytelling into a dimension that is truly compelling.

Kiko Martinez, San Antonio Current


A poignant, bittersweet and often hilarious love letter to the meaning of friendship featuring two outstanding central performances.

Liam Hoofe, Flickering Myth

Bullitt County

Bullitt County features some tense moments between characters who have everything to lose, but the overall tone of the picture doesn't end up registering on an emotional level.

Kiko Martinez, San Antonio Current


The Truth

An essential and atypical contribution to "Bardomania," La Vérité receives a first-rate Blu-ray restoration, with a few intriguing extras, from the Criterion Collection.

Clayton Dillard, Slant Magazine

Diamonds for Breakfast

While the movie's unspooling, certain elements seem clumsy or trivial or obvious or lackadaisical, but somehow, in retrospect, what one remembers are the moments of charm and style.

Michael Barrett, PopMatters

Ralph Breaks the Internet

[Ralph Breaks the Internet] is a darker [experience] whose joyous conclusion contains traces of melancholy, surprising for a film aimed at children, yet novel for a series potentially intent on aging with its audience.

Douglas Davidson, Elements of Madness
