8/10 Personal Shopper "Part meditation on modern means of contact, part elusive ghost story... the signification of class and fashion and the fate of effortless style, a girlish clumsiness transformed in each awkward action and tensile interaction as elemental fierce presence. "

8/10 The Lost City of Z "Dreamy, elusive, even spectral spectacle of lives haunted by what jungle exploration could reveal about man and civilization. "

9/10 Donnie Darko "The theatrical version is some kind of compacted masterpiece, hormonal, vital, dazed, blissfully unhinged... I'm too attached to Donnie Darko to worry over its wanton weirdness, its mix of concreteness and intangibility."

6/10 Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent "Tenaglia keeps pretension largely at bay, with reenactments of Tower's childhood the only annoying element. Interviews with Mario Batali, Wolfgang Puck, Ruth Reichl and Martha Stewart are spunky, and archival footage from kitchens past is intoxicating."

9/10 The Student ((M)uchenik) "As parables about fundamentalism go, The Student is bold and compelling... Tall, with the brooding, intent looks of a teen Michael Shannon, Petr Skvortsov is a superb incarnation of both zealot and charlatan,"

7/10 Nise: The Heart of Madness (Nise: O Coração da Loucura) "Classically well-shaped and captivating in its small, well-observed gestures of behavior and of color and shape which pour from her patients' subconscious."

Voice from the Stone "'Voice from the Stone' offers suspense. Though some parts fail to make good sense, gothic romance and mystery add much to this film's strange beauty. "

A- The Dinner "Fans of Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" will eat "The Dinner" up."

5/5 Lady Macbeth "If there's a chillier Lady Macbeth than Florence Pugh's callous, scheming madam then we'll pass on the resultant heating bill."

2.5 Rat ""Rat" is an absurdist yarn that eventually outstays its welcome despite magnificent work by Imelda Staunton (vile Professor Umbridge in the Harry Potter films)."

2.5/4 A Quiet Passion "There's more quiet than passion here. But the film is beautifully rendered and paints an exquisite, if at times painful, portrait of Dickinson and the severe New England religion that both shaped and vexed her. "

4/4 An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story " We desperately need substantive, theologically informed debate about the goals of public policy and the likelihood of achieving them through various political systems. A renewed interest in Niebuhr is a small but welcome step in that direction. "

3/4 Personal Shopper "A delicious thriller with broader spiritual themes about the modern world that aren't entirely developed. Stewart continues to shine. "

4/4 Disgraced "Director Pat Kondelis miraculously got both Rouse and Bliss to sit for interviews, and the contrast in demeanor and credibility between the two is impossible to overstate. "

3.5/4 Microcosmos "The movie is rated G, and it's very much recommended to children who are fascinated with all things squirmy."

4/4 Ana-ta-han (Anatahan) "Anatahan is as completely regimented and rigorous as any movie ever made, with just about every aspect of it under Sternberg's control. And yet it's a movie about losing control, about yielding to animal instincts. "

2/5 The Circle "This information-age thriller tries to tackle relevant topics like privacy and accountability, but its presentation is so opaque and plasticky that it might have come from a computer on Prozac. "
