3.5/5.0
One wishes a few different decisions had been made, especially during post-production, but no one can deny the originality of a piece that's unlike anything else to play in Park City (or anywhere for that matter) in 2013.

The Moo Man (2013)
Heathcote seems to get lost in the marshes with Hook, becoming nearly obsessed with the details of his job to the point that he loses any sense of pacing or storytelling.

4.5/5.0
Darlings feels so alive in every frame, from the clever, crisp dialogue to the smart plotting to the tonal shifts that may seem like imbalances to some critics but feel like jazz music riffs to this one.

4.0/5.0
After Tiller (2013)
They're not heroes and they're not demons. After Tiller is an important reminder of the personal stories of doctors and mothers that can get lost in an issue as divisive as abortion.

2.5/5.0
The movie actually plays not unlike the all-night hallucinatory drug experience that its characters seek - there are some ups and downs but the crash comes long before the sun comes up.

3.0/5.0
Immigration has been a hot-button subject matter for film, especially the kind of doc films that play at Sundance, for years. The problem with Who is Dayani Cristal? is that it simply doesn't add enough to the conversation to make it memorable.

[Moreh] asks just the right questions, never prodding these understandably private men too far but getting what he needs.

No (2013)
No is a great historical document as to how one very important revolution started with a commercial.

A weak musical, with the normally exuberant Cab Calloway running at half-steam.

Impressive film adaptation of Julian Mitchell's award-winning play.

Bikinis. Boobs. Bongs. Booze. Blasphemy. Bullets. Bloodshed. Bad bitches. Spring Breakers is the rawest (and perhaps greatest) movie about spring break ever.

Grossman deserves kudos for this unique nonfiction celebration of a timeless musical favorite. And as I never get to say in my Episcopalian church services: Mazel Tov!

Polley points the camera at members of her own family and not only informs on where her directorial efforts stem from but confirm her as one of the best and most interesting filmmakers working today.

Touchy Feely (2013)
The twosome and threesome of Shelton's past becomes six individuals, each dealing with an aversion to emotional and physical contact to such an extent that, by the end, it may be hard for the viewer to feel much of anything.

0.5/4
A below-90-minute running time is not even a silver lining to a film that lives up to its name in more ways than one.

Toy's House is what Moonrise Kingdom might have been like if the director's played-out style and monotone quirkiness had not interfered with its similar tale.

3/4
A viewer may have a heavy heart in wondering precisely just what was fact and what was fiction but there is little doubt at how emotionally effective Coogler's version of the story actually is.

Bell's film wants to tell the tale of Hollywood and its vocally-gifted minions picking up the mantle for a new era, but shockingly buries its own lead until it practically becomes an ironic parody of itself.

2/4
It winds up being one of the biggest tonal messes - comically, dramatically and morally - that is ultimately like trying to watch a Judd Apatow production of Shame.

Hell Baby (2013)
Marlon Wayans' A Haunted House no longer can own the title of the worst horror spoof of 2013.

1.5/4
he Look of Love forgets all the other senses when it comes to getting what makes Paul Raymond so fascinating, desensitizing us to caring even less about him than the 60th breast that flashes across the screen.

The Spectacular Now does not come close to earning that certain kind of isolation that teenagers feel, certainly never coming close to equaling the year in Charlie's 'Wallflower' existence.

Blue Caprice (2013)
Lyrical to the point of being ghostly.

3.5/5
This is a consistently moving tone poem of a film, even if its immediacy doesn't necessarily translate into long-lasting resonance.

So devoted to conveying the irrational whimsy of new love that it's overly irrational itself.

As funny as Dogtooth and as silently observational as Bestiaire.

Breathe In (2014)
It's difficult to pinpoint the exact moment at which Breathe In falls apart, mostly because hindsight reveals it was probably doomed all along.

Mud (2013)
Confirms Nichols' status as a rising talent in the world of independent film who's yet to make a truly major work.

The drama never fully takes off, and the laughs are too few and far between to offset the film's fundamental deficiencies.

Wheatley remains a master of infusing the mundane with overtones of dread.

Manhunt (2013)
It's telling that some of this documentary's most compelling segments are made up of pre-existing footage.

Giving these not-quite-stars their moment in the sun is a commendable aim, but it comes at the expense of any real insight.
