Cropsey (2010)
As intriguing as it is downright eerie.

As non-fiction filmmaking goes, this work is a complete disaster.

Salinger (2013)
For those captivated by Salinger's writing, this intelligent and often invigorating film provides fine insight into his world.

Director Shearer plays the film for sly laughs, whether his camera is hovering over his actors, waiting for them to react to the sludge in their environment. Or he bombards our aural senses with a weird soundtrack of singing cats.

3.5/4
As a writer/director, Kennedy has created a fascinating vision of emotional isolation and physical angst along the seedier edges of New York.

Listen Up Philip is the third feature from Alex Ross-Perry, the new master of the awkward and uncomfortable cinematic experience.

Spring in a Small Town uses this schematic to build a tight, emotionally tense triangular drama that questions fidelity, suppressed emotions and the balance of love and responsibility.

Blue Ruin (2014)
Blue Ruin is an awesome and bloody thriller that also takes a good, hard look at the toll revenge can have on individuals as well as those around them.

The Babadook (2014)
Throw in a few fresh images, great performances and enough creepy audio to have you fearing those dark corners again, and you have one entertaining and frightening experience in store.

This film deserves to be seen as a major breakthrough for Jenny Slate who commands the kind of humor and honesty that stars possess.

Boyhood (2014)
It seems appropriate that Boyhood was always in the background, charting its filmmaker's growth from Tape to Before Midnight. As Mason grew, so did the man who kept returning to his story.

Calvary (2014)
It's a film that works almost like a sermon: It lost me at points along the way but hit me like a ton of bricks in its conclusion. On the way home and in the days that passed, I've only come to admire it even more.

Falls into single-girl-in-the-city clichés a few too many times for my tastes, but heralds the arrival of someone who seems likely to do impressive things.

Bigger, brasher, bloodier, and with more bowels, Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead is a blast.

It is often playful, strange, and unexpected. And it is defiant in its refusal to allow you to judge Joe. Is she good or bad? Stop asking the question.

4/5
It is rare to see a film as tonally balanced as The Skeleton Twins. It is both a tearjerker and a crowdpleaser, often in the same scene.

Just by being truthful and honest with its subjects, Cynthia Hill's film feels like a call to action. Listen to it.

Cold in July (2014)
Any issues with the actual narrative fall away when one considers the risk-taking here. We need more risk-takers in horror and I can't wait to see what he does next.

Locke (2014)
Hardy takes an incredibly difficult assignment in that he's the only face seen for 85 minutes, but he gets so deep under the skin of this complex character that he elevates a script that can sometimes feel like a narrative cheat.

Braff's heart is very much 'in it' as Natalie Portman's Sam would say, and while his character fantasizes about science fiction role-playing, the complete storyteller is looking for the reality in our everyday fictions and how it applies to all of us.

After screening The Crash Reel, you will never, ever again delight in televised images of skiers and snowboarders wiping out on the slopes. Guaranteed.

None of the French talent involved seemed to recall that the Vietnam conflict had its roots in the French military occupation of Indochina. Obviously, there was more than a little amnesia on the road from Dien Bien Phu to the Cannes screening rooms.

The screenplay dilutes the book's emotional maelstrom into a tepid swirl of soapy melodrama that is often too predictable for comfort.
