Posted Aug 23, 2019
After the Wedding (2019) Diane Carson After the Wedding sinks under its own artless design. EDIT
Posted Aug 23, 2019
Luce (2019) Diane Carson The drama works because of the convincing performances, even when some events feel false. EDIT
Posted Aug 16, 2019
Millennium Actress (2001) Diane Carson Co-writer/director Satoshi Kon's 2002 Millennium Actress comes close to achieving the highest artistry while delivering a bittersweet, deeply moving narrative. EDIT
Posted Aug 14, 2019
Them That Follow (2019) Martha K. Baker Don't expect anything as deep as Daniel Woodrell wrote in Winter's Bone, or any of his Ozark noir, but do expect to be illuminated about a part of American culture caught in Christian cul-de-sacs of cruelty toward women. EDIT
Posted Aug 9, 2019
Tel Aviv on Fire (2018) Diane Carson Salam had me rooting for him throughout. EDIT
Posted Aug 9, 2019
The Operative (2019) Diane Carson The Operative gets lost in its own machinations and clichés too much for me to highly recommend it. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2019
The Farewell (2019) Martha K. Baker The Farewell began as a entry in This American Life, and it might have fit pretty well there, in a tight space with words as the prevailing medium. It just does not stretch well to an hour and 40 minutes on a big screen. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019) Diane Carson Once Upon a Time . . . in Hollywood really is, with apologies to Faulkner, a lot of sound and fury, essentially signifying nothing. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
This Changes Everything (2018) Martha K. Baker It is well worth seeking out. EDIT
Posted Jul 23, 2019
The Art of Self-Defense (2019) Diane Carson At best a cartoonish lampoon, it exaggerates its nerdish protagonist and lacks needed, nuanced development. EDIT
Posted Jul 23, 2019
Maiden (2018) Diane Carson Watching Maiden is a thrilling realization of just such impossible dreams achieved. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2019
Rosie (2018) Martha K. Baker Director Paddy] Breathnach shows Rosie coping, multi-tasking, melting down, loving, forging ahead with her little girl. She is beautiful in every way. Her story is, too. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2019
Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am (2019) Martha K. Baker Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am is an English major's dream doc, but it appeals to anyone who loves Toni Morrison's well-wrought words. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
Ophelia (2018) Diane Carson Ophelia tries too hard to maintain emotional distress and nonstop momentum. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
Being Frank (2018) Martha K. Baker It's hard to say who's more at fault: writer, director, actors, pool boy. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
La chute de l'empire Américain (2018) Diane Carson Even at a slightly too long two hours plus, the well-acted, unconventional (albeit flawed) escapade has more on its mind than most heist films. I do wish it had more effectively presented its arguments. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
The Spy Behind Home Plate (2019) Martha K. Baker [A] riveting documentary. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019) Diane Carson Told with unique artistry and poignant compassion. EDIT

Posted Jun 21, 2019
Double Lives (2018) Diane Carson French filmmakers keep proving they have a knack for burrowing into personal and professional relationships, the latest exhibit being Non-Fiction. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
Late Night (2019) Martha K. Baker Late Night is not as good as it could be, yet it manages to amuse often enough to be a relaxant as well as to speak strongly to the bloody sexism that is rife in the writers' rooms of late-night comedy, something Kaling and Thompson know too well. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
Echo in the Canyon (2018) Martha K. Baker It is a delight from one scene to the other, one note to the next. Earworms welcome. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
American Woman (2018) Martha K. Baker Sienna Miller... brings award-worthy electricity to the role of Deb, extruding the soft woman from the hard skank. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
The Tomorrow Man (2019) Martha K. Baker Inventive, seductive camera shots are not enough to save this character study of two unlikeable characters. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2019
Black Mother (2018) Diane Carson The impression is of a dreamlike blend, some shots repeated, inspected at leisure with an implicit critique of colonial exploitation, contemporary sociopolitical circumstances, and gender inequality. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2019
The Russian Five (2018) Diane Carson For all of us who can never get enough hockey, count me in, 'The Russian Five' is an incredibly enjoyable film. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2019
The Souvenir (2019) Diane Carson Some stories are important to tell but boring in their unfolding. That's how I felt for the entirety of Joanna Hogg's The Souvenir. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
Shadow (2018) Diane Carson A mesmerizing film. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
All Is True (2018) Diane Carson For my money, there's no one who communicates Shakespeare's ideas and emotion as well as Branagh. All Is True is an aesthetic treasure. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
Booksmart (2019) Martha K. Baker The pace is fast, the wit is superior, the movie is smart and fun! EDIT
Posted May 30, 2019
Ahlat Agaci (2018) Diane Carson Beautifully composed, with music that adds ambience, and with acting so convincing it feels like a documentary, The Wild Pear Tree is a remarkable film. EDIT
Posted May 30, 2019
Photograph (2019) Diane Carson It takes aim at the heartstrings, and for those who can relax into a slowly paced, hour 45 minute character study, it succeeds. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
The Biggest Little Farm (2018) Diane Carson Overall, the story of Apricot Lane Farm should be both a warning and an invitation to those who want to "return to nature." EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
The White Crow (2018) Diane Carson David Hare's screenplay gives the dialogue a literate vitality, with convincing delivery of the drama depending on the superb Russian ballet dancer Oleg Ivenko as Nureyev. EDIT
Posted May 17, 2019
Tolkien (2019) Martha K. Baker The Finnish director Dome Karukoski has paid homage to the brilliant philologist and fantastic John Ronald Ruel Tolkien with this imaginative and intense biography. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2019
Long Shot (2019) Martha K. Baker Long Shot does not bring back the romcom so much as it reminds viewers why that genre resembles a corpse today. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2019
Red Joan (2018) Martha K. Baker Director Trevor Nunn... does not do his best work in Red Joan. He made a serviceable film, which informs more than entertains. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2019
Hesburgh (2018) Martha K. Baker The documentary is gripping, moving, and informing about a man who made a difference whether you know it or not. EDIT
Posted May 3, 2019
Ask Dr. Ruth (2019) Martha K. Baker Ask Dr. Ruth shows her being the funny, loving, plain-spoken, well-educated, unique Dr. Ruth. EDIT
Posted May 3, 2019

Posted May 1, 2019
Napszállta (2018) Diane Carson [Irisz Leiter's] hypnotic, dream-like movement can cast a spell, as it did for me, though abandoning hope of any narrative drive or logic is required. EDIT
Posted May 1, 2019
Wild Nights With Emily (2018) Martha K. Baker Wild Nights with Emily is one of the most quirky, unpredictable films worth watching. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2019
Little Woods (2018) Martha K. Baker Little Woods is [Nia] DaCosta's debut as a writer and director... She made a movie about women that transcends its realistic trail of tears. EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2019
Amazing Grace (2018) Martha K. Baker An amazing documentary. EDIT
Posted Apr 19, 2019
The Brink (2019) Diane Carson Those who support and those who disagree with Bannon will learn a lot from The Brink as it reveals why and how this 64-year-old political operative works and what makes him tick. EDIT
Posted Apr 19, 2019
Barbara (2012) Diane Carson Nina Hoss as the title character Barbara gives a sterling, complex performance, convincingly combining wary guardedness with steely determination. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2019
The Chaperone (2018) Diane Carson As Louise, Haley Lu Richardson brings a welcome jolt of joie-de-vivre to her character, not an easy achievement given Brooks' fame. EDIT
