Lingers lovingly on the intentionally dismal.

Hot Pursuit (2015)
How could anything as lightweight and predictable be so hilarious? Because it has Reese Witherspoon and SofĂ­a Vergara in it.

The D Train (2015)
Takes us to a place at which other bromantic comedy protagonists stop short.

A brilliant cultural excavation.

So mild it's actually abrasive.

Overcomes its ripe visuals and familiar story line with straightforward, actorly style.

We can admire the concept, but we're happy when it's over.

Black Souls (2015)

The flavor is odd and completely irresistible.

An idiosyncratic, very personal portrait of an inspiring musical sensibility.

Black Sea (2015)
A modest, tightly wound, straightforward story about a dangerous task performed by disposable men under severe conditions.

Timbuktu (2015)
Wants us to slow down and think about what we're seeing.

Leviathan (2014)

Pull up a chair and listen.

Cronenberg is seriously late to the party.

Filmmaker Boorman's stroll down memory lane does not bowl us over with rapid-fire hilarity. It soothes us and then melts away unobtrusively.

Still Alice (2015)
Movies about slowly dying characters almost never leave us feeling ennobled or uplifted - they make us feel like suckers.

Blackhat (2015)
Disappointingly inert, lifeless adventure.

Think of it as "Civil Rights for beginners."

Big Eyes (2014)
Bad taste is timeless.

The story never seems to end. It just keeps lurching on, anti-climax after anti-climax.

As he begins to doubt, so do we.

Unbroken (2014)
Irony is not allowed, only old-fashioned bravery.
Posted Jan 23, 2015

Seems a trifle weary, as if everyone were exhausted and anxious to finally get it over with.

Annie (2014)

As dead as the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Wild (2014)
There's something about a cinematic road trip that circulates the juices, stirs the pheromones.

You'll want to wear a sweater to the theater.
